Mobile Device Management - Available Today!
We’ve launched a new mobile security feature for all plans called Mobile Device Management (MDM, for short). The new feature allows customers to enforce security controls for their Atlassian cloud mobile apps to prevent data leaks or unauthorized access and ensure compliance with corporate policies. The feature is available across all cloud plans and the JSW, Confluence, JSM and Trello products.
MAM in Cloud Enterprise - Coming Soon!
Coming soon to the Cloud Enterprise plan only is a new feature called Mobile App Management (MAM, for short). With MAM, admins can manage security policies via admin console (admin.atlassian.com) and push to both company managed devices as well as bring-your-own-device. The policies can be set at org level across all products and workspaces. This feature is specific to the Cloud Enterprise plan and only the JSW, Confluence and JSM products). A beta is planned for June, and GA planned for July of this year. Stay tuned for details!

Heads Up! 3 Month Extended Trial of Team Calendars Ending Soon
The 3-month extended trial of Confluence Premium for existing Team Calendars for Confluence customers with monthly subscriptions ends on April 30, 2021. If you prefer not to upgrade to Confluence Cloud Premium after your trial, you can change your Confluence plan in the Manage Subscriptions screen of your admin portal before April 30, 2021. If you cancel Confluence Premium, you’ll no longer have access to Team Calendars for Confluence. Team Calendars can be reinstated at any time by upgrading to Confluence Premium.
Extended Access Trial for G Suite Users Ending in May 2021
Last August, we split the G Suite free integration into a free and paid version (moving the paid version behind Atlassian Access). The changes happened in phases - in the first phase (August 2020), we rolled out the free/paid experience to net new customers who haven’t integrated with G Suite before. The second phase targeted existing G Suite customers who were using G Suite for free (Nov 2020) - and lastly, we grandfathered them [existing G Suite customers) with free Access for 6 months before they need to obtain a paid account or move to a free account. The grandfathering period is about to end.
For customers currently using G Suite via Access for free, the grandfather period is ending in May, and that you’ll have the option to choose either the free (non Access) version of G Suite or a paid version through Access.
