Today I’m looking at Microsoft 365 Enterprise Mobility + Security E3 and E5 Licenses and trying to work out which licenses I need and what the differences are. I’ve reviewed the guide on features and pricing, visit compare-plans-and-pricing
There are four key areas for Enterprise Mobility + Security:
- Identity and access management
- Managed mobile productivity
- Information protection
- Identity driven security
If you business it focused on Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 licenses but you need to save costs, its certainly worth reviewing what features your using and what is available / partially included in an Enterprise Mobility + Security E3 license. Microsoft would describe the differences as “Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 includes new and advanced security capabilities that make up our holistic and innovative approach to security for the mobile enterprise. Some E5 capabilities were previously only available as standalone products, such as Microsoft Cloud App Security, or as products in preview, such as Microsoft Azure Active Directory Identity Protection, Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management, and Azure Information Protection.”
A break down of the Key Additional Features in E5 and not in E3.
This is a quick break down of the additional features in the E5 license you don’t get in E3 currently. (Please check again, this is not a live feature list)
- Register MFA – All Users
- Password changed (High risk users)
- Require MFA for medium to high risk users
- Manage, Control and monitor important information or resources
- Automate the classification and labelling process ( Personal interpretation, not sure if that terminology is correct)
- Azure identity Protection which can be leveraged in CA. Identity Protection Policies example
- CASB Cloud Access Security Broker
- Detect, Identify Abnormalities, Advanced Attacks
So does you business have any other 3rd party tools already providing the features of E5? It might be worth noting some components Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 can be purchased separately, but the logic is a suite gives more value in a bundle.
Another good option to get hands on and try the full E5 license, why not run a PoC to see if the features of Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 with a free Trial (90 days offered when I wrote this)?
I hope this post helped, additional information is available direct from the Microsoft Site.
Apologise if any information is incorrect, this is just a personal review and no way related to Microsoft.
