written by Graeme Roux - Galdon Data

"Work is something you do, not somewhere you go."

While the above statement would look right at home on a motivational poster, it’s also never been more true than right now.

More and more, employees need access to everything from everywhere. This enables them to be productive no matter where they are, or what device they are currently using. But with an increasing number of employees accessing sensitive information on personal devices, is it possible to stay secure?


Data leaks, Lost Devices and Stolen Credentials are just some of the things keeping IT Departments up at night. They need to prepare to mitigate the risks of providing this freedom and space to their employees.

So how does an organization allow its employees to be productive and collaborative, without compromising on security? With the right blend of Microsoft Products, the answer is simple… Enable them with Skype for Business, Protect them with Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS).

With Skype for Business you can simplify your infrastructure with one platform for calling, conferencing, video, and sharing. Connect your teams with the experience they love, in the Office applications they use every day.

Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) helps to provide employees with secure and seamless access to corporate email and documents as well as familiar email and productivity experiences with Office mobile apps such, as Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. EMS helps protect corporate data on the device itself and beyond with four layers of protection—all without affecting the personal data on the device. IT can even manage these apps without requiring the device to be enrolled for management.
