Since Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) is a core component of Microsoft 365 services you need to understand what services is present within the EMS package. In the same way that Microsoft 365 services comes with a E3 or E5 service level does EMS also that. I will try to give a easy and understandable overview of all the core components of EMS within the next 5 blog posts.

We will dig into all the main topics that you se in the table below.
