Microsoft Enterprise Mobility - what's coming in May

EMS Landing page

It looks like May is going to be another bumper month for EMS feature releases. Microsoft issued some advance notifications today and you can read this in the official Enterprise Mobility blog:

Ignite: Microsoft’s next chapter in Enterprise Mobility

These are the highlights:
    • Public preview of Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA): a product based on Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Aorato, an innovator in enterprise security. Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics is an on-premises product to help IT organizations protect their enterprise from advanced targeted attacks by automatically analyzing, learning, and identifying normal and abnormal entity (user, devices, and resources) behavior through Active Directory, the identity management technology used by most enterprises. It also detects known malicious attacks and security issues using security research work. ATA provides clear and relevant threat information on a simple convenient feed, helping IT security professionals to focus on what is important.    
    • Intune Conditional Access and Mobile Application Management for the Outlook app: This quarter, Intune will enable customers to restrict access to the Outlook app based upon device enrollment and compliance policies as well as restrict actions such as cut, copy, paste, and save as between the Intune-managed Outlook app and personal apps.  Stay tuned to the Intune blog for more information on this feature when it becomes generally available.    
    • Azure AD Cloud App Discovery:  In the next month Azure AD will enable customers to identify cloud apps being used in a customer’s IT environment revealing shadow IT. 
    • Public preview of Azure AD Privileged Identity Management: Enables customers to discover, restrict and monitor privileged accounts and their access to resources and enforce on-demand temporary administrative access when needed. Azure AD Privileged Identity Management is available in Azure AD Premium.
    • Public preview of Azure Rights Management Document Tracking: Enables customers to track activities on sensitive files that they have shared with others. With a single click, users can also revoke access to shared files.   

There was also an announcement on Support for Windows 10

"In this increasingly mobile-first world, Windows 10 is evolving to deliver updates on a rapid cloud cadence, offering best-in-class experiences across PCs, tablets, and mobile devices. To support this evolution, we plan to offer the leading mobile-first, cloud-first management capabilities for Windows 10 with System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune."
