The Secure Productive Enterprise is a per user licensing option available through the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) and Microsoft Products & Services Agreement (MPSA) and comes with two different plans. It includes Office 365 Enterprise E3 (or E5), Enterprise Mobility + Security E3 (or E5), and Windows Enterprise E3 (or E5). The combination of these three offerings empowers users with best-in-class productivity tools across devices while supporting IT security and control. Secure Productive Enterprise offers additional security features and analytics tools.
In the modern workplace, employees are always connected and always moving. They have more devices with more data, and they expect tools to support ubiquitous collaboration. IT needs a solution to help protect data, manage the growing number of mobile devices, unify environments that span operating systems, and enable seamless collaboration for workers across all their devices.
Part of Office 365 E3 & E5 is the Dual Access Right which allows access to an equivalent on premise server in your own datacenter. The same holds true for the Enterprise Mobility + Security – the full SPE subscription license delivers the required access conditions for Windows Server Rights Management Service. Thus, SPE does not only give you usage rights for Online Services but also the same rights as on premise licenses: Office Professional Plus, Enterprise or Core CAL and Windows Enterprise.
ECS becomes SPE

COMPAREX Senior Technical Presales Executive Thino Ullmann has summarized the new features of the SPE, as well as the most important differences between the various versions of the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite (EMS) E3/ E5 and Windows 10 Enterprise E3/ E5.
