2. Helping protect your data by protecting corporate information and managing risk.
3. Unifying your environment by delivering comprehensive application and device management from both your existing on-premises infrastructure, including System Center Configuration Manager, Windows Server, and Active Directory, as well as cloud-based services, including Windows Intune and Windows Azure.
