Microsoft today announced the new “Secure Productive Enterprise” bundle for organizations which need the combination Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and the Enterprise Mobility + Security suite. Secure Productive Enterprise brings together Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and the Enterprise Mobility + Security suite into a single licensing offering and it replaces the Enterprise Cloud Suite.
Microsoft is standardizing packaging offers across Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise and the Enterprise Mobility + Security suite. Moving forward you will see E3 and E5 offerings for each of these products. So, there will be two tiers of the Secure Productive Enterprise offering: E3 and E5. Microsoft is renaming Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and Windows 10 Enterprise E5 will be released later this year.
Microsoft today also announced that they are renaming the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) to Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) to more accurately communicate its value. Read about it here.
The Secure Productive Enterprise E5 will be Microsoft’s top end offering which will include the latest, most advanced enterprise security, management, collaboration and business analytics. The Secure Productive Enterprise E5 offering will become available later in calendar year 2016 when the new Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security functionality has all released.
