Solve Your Licensing Conundrum with Microsoft’s New Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) Licensing Bundle

Solve Your Licensing Conundrum with Microsoft’s New Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) Licensing Bundle

Interview with Matt Scherocman – Licensing Wrangler and President of Interlink Cloud Advisors


Slashing through the dense thicket of software licensing often requires the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, and an army of product experts. Understanding and sourcing your Microsoft licensing is like pouring over the Cheesecake Factory menu. But instead of deciding between hundreds of appetizers, lunch or dinner dishes, you must wade through pages of operating systems, applications, and security solutions.

“The entire licensing process has always been a problem for companies,” says Matt Scherocman, President of Interlink Cloud Advisors. “Thankfully Microsoft is doing something about it.”

That “something” is Microsoft’s new Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) offering that may make licensing headaches a thing of the past. SPE is a secure, desktop licensing bundle that is sold by user. Before getting to this new, streamlined offering, however, Microsoft has taken us on a bit of winding branding and bundling journey.

Secure Productive Enterprise – The Ultimate License Bundle– The New Enterprise Cloud Suite

Secure Productive Enterprise – The Ultimate License Bundle– The New Enterprise Cloud Suite

What is Secure Productive Enterprise? 

Companies want to continue to use the most advanced technology to enable their employees to achieve more, but all of these new and different products have resulted in a licensing headache. We hear constantly that attempting to navigate around Microsoft licensing can be challenging and frustrating. Microsoft created the Enterprise Cloud Suite (ECS) a few years ago in an attempt to simplify this process. It was a single licensing option that included E3, the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite and Windows Desktop upgrade. Building upon this initial base Microsoft is now continuing to simplify this process with the introduction of the Secure Productive Enterprise. This will be bringing together Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise upgrade, and the Enterprise Mobility + Security suite into a single licensing offering called the Secure Productive Enterprise. This will be replacing the Enterprise Cloud Suite and Microsoft will be introducing even more options by also offering an Office 365 E5 option in the bundle.   

Moving forward Microsoft will be standardizing packaging offers across Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite by offering two tiers of the Secure Productive Enterprise: E3 and E5. This is what it will look like:

Microsoft will continue to evolve the Windows E5 edition by adding more functionality. The first difference is the introduction of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection for end point breach detection.
