CaptureIn the last post I covered the MS-100 Identity and Services exam, and this time round it’s the MS-101 Mobility and Security exam. One of the big differences I see with this exam is that the overall scope is larger, and because it includes coverage of more of the Microsoft 365 Enterprise E5 technologies it’s not likely the type of thing that many test takers would have broad exposure to just yet. That doesn’t mean you can’t get some experience though.

While you can easily sign up for an Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 trial and an Office 365 Enterprise E5 trial, a Windows 10 Enterprise E5 trial is a little trickier. What you will need to do is request a trial if Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection here,  and pair that with Windows 10 Enterprise as part of the Modern Desktop Deployment and Management Lab Kit on the Microsoft Evaluation Center. As I mentioned in the previous post, this currently weighs in at 26.5GB but it provides a huge amount of flexibility as far as testing and learning scenarios are concerned.

While I positioned the MS-100 exam as a worthy successor to the 70-346 exam, with elements of 70-347 rolled in, this exam is quite different. If someone approaches this as an updated Office 365 exam, they will struggle with large portions of the exam. While this exam does cover some of the security and compliance elements of 70-347, it goes much further, so be prepared.
