by Patrick Renzi | 12.12.16

It's no secret that Microsoft owns the productivity workspace. They have shown time and time again that productivity is about more than just end-user applications. Without a stable, user-friendly interface, adoption of these apps would simply flounder. Never content to simply sit on their laurels, Microsoft began to notice the trends of the last decade. The shift to mobile users demanding the same experience across all devices led them to release per-user subscriptions of Office 365 and then Windows Enterprise. Both give users the same experience across all devices, and, as mobility continues to flourish, Microsoft is pushing to secure those users—leading to the release of the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). This bundles the best of their of per-user, device-centric security and leaves no stone unturned. EMS protects the device, the user’s identity, the apps, and the files.
