Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella officially unveiled the new Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) today. The suite is intended for large enterprise customers who need to manage centrally iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Windows devices, and more.
With the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) revolution well under way, enterprise solutions that support the mobile workforce are a necessity for all types of organizations, and it’s great to see Microsoft responding to this need. Now that work no longer only takes place from 9 to 5, the emergence of free third-party ﬁle sharing services, and the proliferation of mobile devices, organizations are facing security headaches for compliance and IT teams alike.
In today’s work shifting world, mobile devices are no longer a matter of convenience, but necessity. End-users demand access to their digital assets on their mobile devices, and they are often already accessing these tools – with or without IT’s approval.
Here at AvePoint, we complement EMS by enabling your organization to provide enterprise SharePoint mobility as a service by giving your users the freedom to choose how and with whom they want to collaborate, from external users to devices and locations – all while keeping sensitive digital assets secure.
