A national drinks provider needed help with MDM

Read how we rolled out Microsoft EMS (now Endpoint Manager) to improve device security and management

Main Benefits

  • Increase device security
  • Reduce costs by removing existing MDM
  • Enable cloud-based management of apps and devices

The Problem

Through the use of on-premises Microsoft system centre suite products, Matthew Clark had great visibility of the configuration and health of their infrastructure but this didn't extend to remote devices and didn't provide intelligent reporting on risky sign-ins and couldn't stop potential attackers from successfully gaining access from remote locations or untrusted devices.


    Project workflow

    Main steps to get this project delivered


    On-premises discovery and migration start



    Migrate users to Office 365 Saas Services



    Migrate remaining infrastructure to Azure



    Complete migration and start ongoing support


    The Solution

    As Matthew Clark already were using Office 365, they were keen to discover what Microsoft options were available to provide the best management experience. Following a successful technology workshop that explained the features of Intune and Active Directory Premium, Matthew Clark chose Microsoft EMS E3 as the MDM/MAM package for the business.

    Through a series of on-site visits, Cloudworks helped Matthew Clark devise a security policy for intelligent use of multi-factor authentication based on a series of conditions.

    Bitlocker device encryption was also rolled out to ensure no corporate data loss in the event of a device theft or accidental misplacement.


      The Benefits

      Through the use of intelligent security, the IT team at Matthew Clark had the confidence that all corporate data would be secure in the event of an attempted breach or the theft or loss of a corporate device.

      All security threats are being monitored and reported under with actions taken for any login events deemed to be risky by Azure Active Directory.

      • Improve Productivity

        The business, with continued mentoring from Cloudworks are now working on improving their business processes by expanding into the full suite of Microsoft Cloud services. This includes using Teams for voice calling, Yammer for internal communications and Azure for the services that couldn’t be moved to Software As A Service based technologies.

      • Secure the data and identities

        Cloudworks have taken ownership of the security of devices and identities. We contact users directly if we spot any activity out of the ordinary, which has given the directors and staff confidence that their data, and that of their clients is secure.
