Think bigger with Microsoft 365

An all-encompassing package that includes Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. 

Microsoft 365 offers the perfect balance between productivity, security and mobility. 

Although the names are similar, Office 365 and Microsoft 365 are two separate products and there are clear differences between the two.

In a nutshell, Microsoft 365 includes Office 365 as these plan licenses offer the Office 365 components in addition to many other powerful tools.

Key Benefits of M365:

Maintaining a secure business can go hand-in-hand with today’s mobile tools and applications and Microsoft 365 enables you to keep your business running smoothly while having peace of mind.

The three key elements that comprise Microsoft 365 plans include: 

 

Office 365
Unleash your best ideas, get things done and stay connected.

Windows 10
Advanced protection, flexible deployment options, comprehensive app management.

Enterprise Mobility and Security
Secure access to company data from any device.

 

Microsoft 365 has enabled businesses to ditch outdated mainframes and expensive on-premises servers while also driving mobility and efficiency across entire operations. Additionally, it has empowered the modern workforce to adopt flexible working methodologies, and enabled teams in the field to seamlessly update data, as well as monitor the progress of their current initiatives.

How can you maintain security?

Improved connectivity also means greater risk. As businesses increase their number of customer-facing touchpoints, mobile assets, and online platforms, they also provide cybercriminals with more options to compromise their data. As a result, cyber-attacks have become more frequent and damaging, and organisations have made it their top priority to stay one step ahead of these evolving threats. Thankfully, the cloud itself has been fortified to become the best new defence for organisations to counter and fight back possible security breaches.

Security is a less flashy term than, say, innovation or digital transformation, but it’s without a doubt one of the most important defining aspects of your business. 

When properly implemented within your collaboration tools and mobile devices, it’s a critical advantage that allows your organization to move confidently in the direction it chooses with less risk along the way. This, in turn, removes the strain of constant security breaches and leaves your CTOs and CIOs to focus on innovation and efficiency.

 

Some of the security tools that are available across Microsoft 365 plans are:

How can you enable safe remote working?

Your business may need to enable your workers to have secure access to your organisation's on-premises and cloud-based information, tools, and resources from their homes. Now more than ever, allowing workers to work away from the office is important for many organisations.

Microsoft 365 provides you with the tools you need to keep your workforce connected, whilst allowing you to manage devices to ensure your organisation is safe and compliant. Tools such as Microsoft Teams enable collaborative online meetings as well as shared tasks and workflows to divide up work and get things done.
