Together, Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, Microsoft Azure AD Premium , Microsoft Azure RMS and Microsoft Intune , also called the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) help organizations address the consumerization of IT. With Microsoft’s people-centric IT solution, organizations can empower their users, unify their environment, and protect their data, ultimately helping to embrace consumerization and a people- centric IT model, while maintaining corporate compliance.

What can the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) bring for you :

· Enabling your end users to work on the device or devices they love and providing them with consistent and secure access to corporate resources from those devices. Part of the way we do that is by providing a hybrid identity solution, enabled by Azure Active Directory Premium.

· Delivering comprehensive application and mobile device management from both your existing on-premises infrastructure, including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Windows Server, and Active Directory, as well as cloud-based services, including Windows Intune and Windows Azure. This helps to unify your environment. EMS provides mobile device management, enabled by Windows Intune

· Helping protect your data by protecting corporate information and managing risk. EMS provides data protection, enabled by Azure Rights Management service

Here are the 10 reasons why to consider EMS:

10. The ability to protect corporate information by selectively wiping apps and data. With System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and/or Microsoft Intune, IT can selectively and remotely wipe any device, including applications and sensitive company data, management policies and networking profiles.

9. Identification of compromised mobile devices. Jailbreak and root detection enables IT to determine which devices accessing corporate resources are at-risk, so that IT can choose to take appropriate action on those devices, including removing them from the management system and selectively wiping the devices.

8. Comprehensive settings management across platforms, including certificates, virtual private networks (VPNs), and wireless network and email profiles. With System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and/or Microsoft Intune, IT can provision certificates, VPN’s, and wi-fi profiles on personal devices within a single administration console.

7. Access on-premises and in-the-cloud resources with common identity. IT can better protect corporate information, manage and control resource access, and mitigate risk by being able to manage a single identity for each user across both on-premises and cloud-based applications. IT can better protect corporate information and mitigate risk by being able to restrict access to corporate resources based on user, device, and location.

6. Simplified, user-centric application management across devices. IT gains efficiency with a single management console, where policies and applications can be applied across groups (user and device types).

5. Enhance end-user productivity with self-service and Single-Sign-On (SSO) experiences. Help users be more productive by providing each with a single identity to use no matter what they access, whether they are working in the office, working remotely, or connecting to a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application. Access company resources consistently across devices. Users can work from the device of their choice to access corporate resources regardless of location.

4. Protect information anywhere with Microsoft Azure RMS. Protecting information at rest and in transit requires authentication and preventing alteration, both key requirements for protecting sensitive corporate information.

The Microsoft Azure Rights Management Solution (RMS) that can help enterprises transition from a device-centric to a people-centric, consumerized IT environment without compromising compliance on document protection.

3. Single Pane of Glass Mobile device management of on-premises and cloud-based mobile devices. IT can manage mobile devices completely through the cloud with Microsoft Intune or extend its System Center Configuration Manager infrastructure with Microsoft Intune to manage their devices (PCs, Macs, or servers) and publish corporate apps and services, regardless of whether they’re corporate-connected or cloud-based.

2. Simplified registration and enrollment for BYOD. Users can register their devices for access to corporate resources and enroll in the Microsoft Intune management service to manage their devices and install corporate apps through a consistent company portal.

And… Number 1 if you ask me for the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite…

1. Enable users to work on the device of their choice and from where they want. Give your users access to applications, data and resources from any device from virtually everywhere, while ensuring documents are secured and your mobile devices are compliant.

Hope it Helps ,
