Today, with the increased mobility of employees and the rising Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)trend, the control over the security of your business data is getting weaker and weaker. As a business owner, the last thing you want to happen is your confidential data to be stolen, lost or placed in the wrong hands. So, you need to make sure to take the right measures to prevent that.
Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) provides a great bundle of products to manage your data safely and efficiently from any location. Provided below are all the benefits that you can expect from the software, as outlined by the IT experts, Syntax IT Support London.
- Controlling employee access
Since employees are now increasingly using their personal devices at work, it has become harder to monitor their activities. However, with the introduction of Azure Active Directory, Microsoft has managed to tackle this issue by bringing all the employees on a single platform where they can operate all apps with just one sign on.
Providing employees with a consistent experience across all devices they use not only makes them more productive but also saves them time. Rather than having to ask for assistance, they can now perform simple tasks such as resetting their password on their own.
Moreover, the software has the option of providing a greater level of security through a multistep identification process such as the two-factor authentication. Its advanced security controls can easily spot potential security issues to enable fast and efficient reactions.
With the security controls that EMS provides, you can be sure that your data is in safe hands. Through monitoring user activity from up close, the software has a greater control on employees’ performance. In addition, it can easily detect user mistakes and trigger a notification.
Moreover, the behavioural analytics technologies detect suspicious patterns as soon as they appear and calls for immediate action. Sharing files has become more secure with the advanced controls of tracking and protecting them while in transit.
- Managing access to applications
With the increasing trend of mobile workforce, employees now require a flexible and convenient access to the company’s resources in order to be able to work more efficiently. Through Microsoft Intune, you can now deliver and manage applications over the cloud or from the premises, all via a single platform.
Furthermore, you can choose to manage the apps with or without adding the device used to the system. This way, you can protect corporate data without interfering the employee’s personal live.
- Safeguarding business data
Using Azure Information Protection, you can classify and label your business data based on vulnerability so that you know that you need to take extra care with it. In addition, sensitive data can also be encrypted so that not everyone is able to read it. Once encrypted, you can define users’ access to the data and decide what each user can do with it – such as enabling them to view, modify, or delete files.
Thanks to the ease of use that the software provides, all of this can be done in a single click without interrupting employees’ work.
The desktop virtualization feature allows you to operate from any location and device you like: Windows, Android, iOS, etc. In addition, using EMS you should not worry about the amount of capacity you need as this can always be increased or decreased depending on your business demands – just one of the benefits of SaaS products.
You can choose between being based on premises, on the cloud, or on a hosted deployment. Whatever you decide, you can be sure that your business data will be protected from leaks.
