Azure Active Directory Control for Office 365

Windows 10 enables enterprises to block access to corporate cloud resources if a device falls out of compliance. EMM plays a central role in monitoring and reporting device status to Azure Active Directory, which grants or denies account access based on information from the EMM provider.

Windows Phone market share is hovering at a lowly 3 percent, but hopes for Windows 10 on mobile are high. According to CEO Satya Nadella, Microsoft's "big mistake" was to focus on the PC as the perpetual hub for everything. As a result, the company was slow to recognize the importance of mobile devices, and this opened up the fast-track to obsolescence.

Now, Microsoft has learned from its mistakes. It is funneling significant resources into creating a robust and user-friendly mobile platform. However, Nadella said that focusing entirely on mobile would mean making the same mistake Microsoft made before. Microsoft is still a major player on PCs and hopes that Windows 10 on desktop will hit one billion computers. With the latest version of Windows, the focus is on interoperability and unification. This strategy recognizes that the future may not be so much about one dominant computing platform as it is about constant switching back-and-forth between multiple devices. In the land of VoIP, this would have been called "call continuity." In this new evolving realm, it will be more like "endpoint continuity" across devices.

Windows 10 comes with a number of benefits that will enable enterprises to seamlessly manage smartphones, tablets, PCs and other devices. Jim Kanir, CRO of Vox Mobile, has identified 10 things IT admins need to know about Windows 10 for mobile.
