Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS)

Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) provides enterprise grade IT solutions for mobile device and identity management, data protection and threat detection; all combined into one package.

EMS is cost effective compared to standalone products and provides one comprehensive package for simple management and budgeting. EMS enables IT teams to provide conditional access to devices, apps and data with cross-platform functionality across iOS, Android and Windows. Organisations can easily enhance their security through policy and encryption. EMS supports on-premise, hybrid and cloud architectures.

Advanced Threat Analytics

Microsoft’s threat detection comes in two versions: Advanced Threat Analytics for on-premise and Azure Advanced Threat Protection for the cloud. Using machine learning, these solutions learn, analyse and detect suspicious activity, alert you if anything unusual is happening on your network and provides recommended next steps. This makes a powerful tool when considering the data security breaches.

Azure Active Directory Premium

Azure Active Directory is a cloud-based directory and identity management service that unifies user accounts for improved security and management. This allows single sign-on (SSO) for staff across their Microsoft and third-party services, which removes the need to continually login, as well as allowing self-service password reset (SSPR).

Microsoft InTune

InTune provides mobile device management to allow you to securely manage your mobile devices. Features include the ability to enforce policies across all devices, classify personal and work applications and allow remote device wiping. Windows Autopilot also gives you the ability to remotely build or reset Windows 10 devices to greatly save time and costs and help staff get back up and running without needing to send equipment back.

Azure Rights Management

Microsoft Azure Information Protection gives advanced data protection by allowing you to classify your documents, such as Public, Confidential or Highly Confidential and apply rules based on these categorizations to control your documents. For example, Confidential documents cannot be emailed or printed, or can only be emailed if approved by a manager.

Windows 10 Professional vs. Enterprise features – what’s the difference?

Trying to figure out which version of Windows your small or midsized business should use? You’re not alone. For most entrepreneurs, it comes down to Windows 10 Professional or Windows 10 Enterprise. Both are widely available on affordable devices, and they offer nearly identical experiences for the end user. Word, Excel, PowerPoint and all the other Windows features, as well as access to the Windows store, are the same in each version.

The features included in the Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise service packages are different, though, and so are the prices.

Windows 10 Pro key features

Windows 10 Pro was built for professionals with limited or no tech support who still want access to business-grade features like mobile device management, remote desktop access, shared devices with multiple logins, and Microsoft Intune.

Windows 10 Pro security

The default security settings in Windows 10 Pro are suitable for most small businesses, and updates are relatively automated. In other words, if you don’t want to mess around with security settings, you don’t have to. All you need to do is run updates when prompted, and you should be good to go. It also comes with BitLocker and BitLocker to Go, as well as Windows Defender Antivirus.

Windows Autopilot, a built-in feature of Windows 10 Pro, makes it easier for small businesses to deploy new devices to employees. Microsoft, or the hardware vendor you choose to work with, will register new devices for your organization. As the business owner, you can choose to customize the default setup by creating a profile that includes things like specific settings or apps.

If you select the self-deploying mode, this only has to be completed one time. After that, every additional Autopilot-enabled device you purchase for your business will automatically be configured to your specifications, so there’s no need for manual on-boarding. New users can simply unpack their laptops or desktops and start working. Additionally, you can create different profiles for the same devices, which is ideal if multiple workers use the same computer, and users can also access their desktops remotely from offsite or non-work machines.

Windows 10 Enterprise – large and mid-sized companies solution

While businesses of any size can use Windows 10 Enterprise, it is built primarily for large and midsize companies. Exceptions may include small businesses with intensive security needs and skilled in-house tech pros.

Windows 10 Enterprise security

Windows 10 Enterprise gives IT departments more freedom to manage security on their own terms. With these Enterprise features, your IT department can do things like remotely manage devices, deliver virtual desktops using Azure, control OS updates, manage apps, access security analytics through the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph, identify and manage data breaches, create custom detection alerts, and pull reports.

Upgrading to Windows Enterprise gives users access to everything included in lower-tier versions of Windows, as well as a bevy of other solutions tailored to larger businesses, packed together in Microsoft 365.

Windows Defender: The Professional version of Windows includes Windows Defender Antivirus, but all Enterprise subscriptions include four additional sub-products: Credential Guard, Application Guard, Application Control and Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). These software tools make up the advanced security available at the Windows 10 Enterprise level.

Virtualization: Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) and Microsoft User Environment Virtualization (UE-V) are both standard with Enterprise subscriptions and allow businesses to centralize Win23 apps on a server and manage all the settings and accounts in one place. This allows your IT department a higher level of oversight and increases app security, though it has little impact on the end user.
