Microsoft 365 (former Secure Productive Enterprise)

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.
Microsoft 365 is a solution which enables your employees to work securely on the go from virtually anywhere and with any device – no matter whose device it is and which operating system it is running.

Microsoft 365 Enterprise is a per user licensing option available through the  Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) and  Microsoft Products & Services Agreement (MPSA) and via Microsoft Cloud Solutions by COMPAREX. It comes with two different Enterprise 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. Microsoft 365 offers additional security features and analytics tools.

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 Microsoft 365 subscription license delivers the required access conditions for Windows Server Rights Management Service. Thus, Microsoft 365 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.
