    Microsoft Office management is becoming more complex as organizations consider management for their on-premise/hybrid/cloud and multi-platform Windows/Mac OS X solutions. All devices are not created equal, with various degrees of manageability/security through traditional tools. We dive into Office management and security solutions across these topic areas.
