Head of technology at Activ Technology, John Prescott, discusses the benefits of Microsoft 365 Business cloud solution.

Moving to the cloud can be a big decision for any organisation and in today’s world of cyber security threats this needs to be carefully thought through. With this in mind, Microsoft 365 has refined its business cloud solution.

You might ask what is Microsoft 365? Put simply, it is Office 365 but with lots of extra security features and cloud device management.

What are the benefits of customers using Microsoft 365 Business cloud solution?

The extra security features can be configured to prevent your company data from leaving your organisation either deliberately or by mistake. This includes Windows 10 upgrade for desktop users (with a qualifying operating system – Windows 7/8/8.1 Pro) and Microsoft Intune, which will also manage your client devices from the cloud.

There are a few flavours of Microsoft 365 but one of the best value packages is that offered by Microsoft 365 Business. Many companies are paying for Microsoft Office 365 E3 licenses in order for it to function with remote desktop services, such as E3, which includes shared activation. However, you can move your E3 license to use Microsoft 365 Business, instead. Microsoft 365 Business is cheaper but with the extra features it offers excellent value for money:
