Executive Summary

There’s a big change happening in IT as companies undergo a digital transformation. Mobility and the cloud significantly change how IT thinks about security. What was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world now extends to the cloud and a myriad of mobile devices.

Employee interactions with other users, devices, apps, and data have become increasingly more complex, generating new blind spots for IT. The sophistication of attack vectors continues to increase. What’s more, many companies struggle to keep up with traditional, single-point solutions. Limited budgets only add to the challenge.

How can existing on-premises solutions for identity management, device management, and information protection effectively address this modern world? The answer is simple: They can’t. Instead, the control plane for all these services needs to move, over time, from your own datacenter to the cloud.

Doing this gives you the control and protection your business requires without compromising the familiar mobile and desktop experiences that employees expect. This is the idea behind Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS)—the only comprehensive mobility solution designed to help manage and protect users, devices, apps, and data in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.
