Wipro embarked on its workplace modernization journey to achieve two major goals: help customers derive business value from the latest technologies and boost employee productivity with a highly secure mobile work environment. The company wanted its employees to be able to use Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based productivity apps anywhere, anytime, and on any device. But the existing traditional security solutions were incapable of supporting such a scenario. Enabling a highly secure mobile work environment demanded the inclusion of complex policies, which in turn necessitated a huge amount of operational rigor. The process was also prone to manual errors that could potentially allow employees to download information onto an unmanaged machine, resulting in security vulnerabilities.
Wipro deployed Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security—a suite of interoperable cloud identity, access management, compliance and security solutions. The suite includes Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Premium, Microsoft Intune, and Azure Information Protection. As an early adopter of Microsoft Office 365, Wipro has also embraced Microsoft Exchange Online for cloud-based email, Yammer (an enterprise social network) for supplementing traditional employee training, and Microsoft Teams (a chat-based workspace) for improved collaboration and communication.
“Using Enterprise Mobility + Security, we have been able to enhance our security posture and employee productivity. Most of our employees can now access several apps from any device and location in a highly secure environment and network.”-Raja Ukil: Senior Vice President and CIO, Wipro Limited
