Office 365 to gain MDM features

Microsoft’s TechEd Europe 2014 (from the wonderful Barcelona) has seen a number of announcements but one of the major ones is that Microsoft will be introducing MDM (Mobile Device Management) features into Office 365. These features will include:

  • Device PIN lock
  • Jailbreak detection
  • Selective wipe (remove corporate data but leave personal data untouched)

MS also say that:

MDM for Office 365 is built directly into the productivity apps your employees know and love, so you can apply policies to help secure company data without sacrificing experience and productivity.

These are the most common features that businesses tend to look for so this both makes Office 365 even more compelling as well as helping make it easier for organizations to get started on their mobile device management journey.
