Recently Shannon Fritz (@MrsHannonFritz) and I have been conducting many events centered around Enterprise Mobility in the mid-west markets and one of the details Microsoft shared with us exposed one of my most anticipated features in Enterprise Mobility, the Rights Management Portal.

While we were giving a demo today of Rights Management we also discovered that RMS has already updated the email that is sent out to the user who chooses to share a document using the Shared Protected button in outlook.

There are many features including tracking, revoking access and geo-location information that will definitely improve the experience and puts Enterprise Mobility capabilities in a whole other league.
