Do You Know All The Benefits Microsoft 365 Has To Offer?

Over the past few years, productivity suites have become more and more popular with businesses of all sizes in a wide and varied range of industries. It’s the type of solution that has something to offer everyone.

Cloud-based technologies, in general, are changing the way users like you view the capabilities of their technology — especially Microsoft 365.

What Does Microsoft 365 Offer You?

Access Your Apps Conveniently

You need to use your tools from anywhere, any device, and Microsoft 365 gives you that flexibility. Access your email, meetings, and other services online. Create, edit, and share Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote files online and stay up to date with everyone’s changes in a file, even if they’re made at the same time.

Microsoft Teams

This chat-based workspace brings users together to collaborate, communicate, and share content, helping them work as efficiently as possible, whether in the office or operating from a remote workplace. Team members and business contacts can stay connected and share work through Microsoft’s suite of solutions they’re most accustomed to.  Microsoft Teams gives you the ability to host real-time meetings, staff training, connect with clients, all in a direct video meeting format. Whether your staff is working remotely or maintaining contact with a key client from out of town, Teams’ video meetings provide a convenient and personal way to communicate without having to make the commute.

Robust Security Features

Microsoft 365 uses a defense-in-depth approach to provide physical, logical, and data layers of security features and operational best practices:

  • The Microsoft 365 Cloud App Security provides insight into any suspicious activity in the program. You can investigate situations that could pose a risk and, if needed, take action to address them. You’ll receive notifications of triggered alerts for any unusual activities. Then you can view what data is being accessed and used and suspend any user accounts that exhibit suspicious activity. Afterward, if you authorize, the user can log back into Microsoft 365.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is another way that Microsoft 365 keeps your data more secure. MFA requires the consumer to utilize two methods to confirm that they are the rightful account owner. By setting up these verification types, you add an extra layer of security to your nonprofit’s Microsoft 365 accounts.
  • Microsoft 365 uses several strong encryption protocols, and technologies including Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL), Internet Protocol Security (IPSec), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Encryption technology is a great way to protect important data. By making data unreadable to anyone who isn’t supposed to have access to it, you can secure files stored on your systems, servers, and mobile devices, as well as files sent via email or through file-sharing services.
  • Built-in Mobile Device Management in Microsoft 365 Business allows you to manage access to your data securely. The built-in Mobile Device Management (MDM) lets you secure and manage your users’ mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, Androids, and Windows phones. You can create mobile device security policies, remotely wipe a device, and view detailed device reports.

Automatic Updates

Enjoy the latest versions of your preferred apps like Microsoft Word and Excel, thanks to automatic patches and updates. No need to pay for version upgrades — updates are included in your subscription. New features are rolled out to Microsoft 365 customers regularly.

Pay As You Go Pricing

Using Microsoft 365 is often more cost-efficient than alternatives, as you pay a low-cost per month for access to the desktop, mobile, and cloud-based applications you need. This tends to be less expensive, with no upfront costs. Plus, upgrades are automatically released, so there’s no need to pay for new software.

Flexible And Customizable Plans

Custom fitting your Microsoft 365 plan to your individual needs is easy with the flexible plans offered. There is no need for an IT overhaul, as you can easily fit the new services into your existing strategy.
