Today we are releasing a Forrester Total Economic Impact™ study of Microsoft Outlook for iOS and Android. Forrester interviewed four large enterprise customers and surveyed over 100 users to develop a financial analysis that found organizations experienced benefits of $5.3 million over three years versus costs of $950,940, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $4.4 million and an ROI of 459%. 

The article explains the benefits of reduced risk of a potential data breach, productivity benefits enabled by Outlook mobile and cost savings from eliminating former security tools and standardizing on a single app for their email and calendar needs.

Any customers impacted by the upcoming retirement of Basic Authentication in Exchange Online benefit also immediately by moving to Outlook mobile as it supports Modern Authentication natively.

Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) is an intelligent mobility management and security platform and is a core component of Microsoft 365.  To understand more about EMS and how its products interact with Outlook mobile to provide greater protection, configuration and access management to your mobile environment, you can also read this article which was  released late in 2019: Outlook for iOS and Android:  A Gold Standard for Secure Mobile Communication in the Enterprise.

Together, these articles convey the business and security benefits of deploying Outlook for iOS and Android as the most secure app for email and calendar and provides insights into some future Microsoft developments to further the security of your mobile devices.
