Migrating to Office 365 for an organization presents a host of new challenges. First, given that Office 365 is accessible from the Internet, traditional access control mechanisms for email and apps, which are based on network and perimeter security models, fail to work. Secondly, unlike their desktop equivalents, mobile office apps present new, complex challenges for BYOD users including containerization and remote wipe.
What organizations need is a way to restrict Office 365 access to only managed and compliant devices without any dependency on the network or domain membership. Additionally, they need to ensure that any data stored on a device is encrypted and can be remotely wiped if lost or stolen. While this may seem trivial at first, it gets increasingly complex considering the many platforms and the complexity in enabling the ability for the solution to co-exist with both enterprise mobility management (EMM) and domain managed devices. Complexity is also added when integrating EMM and domain managed devices with existing on-premise infrastructure.
While this white paper specifically discusses how VMware AirWatch solves these problems for Office 365, the same architecture secures all company applications both cloud and on-premise.
