Microsoft Enterprise Mobility and Security Update
Article Date: 2021-05-10
Microsoft has recently announced that they will be increasing the costs of two of their most widely used plans – Intune and its parent bundle Enterprise Mobility and Security E3. The price rise is not due to take effect until August 2021, and some details have only been released for Corporate users so far, but it is expected that Academic and Non-Profit tenancies are set to be affected as well with similar increases.
The increase is down to the additional functionality they have introduced over the last year and a half, but there are more plans to continue improving both solutions over the coming months ahead of the planned increase which is discussed in the blog below.
Vendors increasing their prices is not generally good news, however, we believe the Microsoft security suite still offers world-class security benefits with the added convenience of a ‘single pane of glass' management.
Start with a licensing assessment to see if you could realise more value by moving to the Microsoft 365 suite, allowing you to make use of the additional features and tools it contains.
