Enterprise Mobility + Security FAQ

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite is now becoming Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). It provides an identity-driven security solution that offers a holistic approach to the security challenges in this mobile-first, cloud-first era. Our technologies not only help your customers protect their organizations but also identify breaches before they cause damage.

Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 is a new tier of EMS that will include new capabilities previously available standalone (Cloud App Security) or in preview (Active Directory Identity Protection & Privileged Identity Management, and Azure Information Protection). EMS E5 will also include the existing EMS capabilities as well as these new technologies.

The existing EMS offer is being renamed EMS E3 and will include Azure Active Directory Premium P1, Intune, Azure Information Protection P1, and Advanced Threat Analytics and the Windows Server CAL rights-same as it does currently.
