Microsoft 365 is a bundle of Office 365 apps and services combined with heightened device security, tighter integration with Windows 10, Data Loss Prevention tools, and more. It puts you in charge of your data in your cloud, and stops it from going where you don’t want it to.
Plus, it comes with a license for Windows 10 Enterprise, to help all machines conform to the latest security specifications and keep your team as productive as possible. Microsoft 365 is the ultimate add-on for your business, and is the cornerstone to your security solution.
Why is this necessary?
Today’s businesses are a mismatch of IT requirements. They often have little coherency, contain silos of data in many different locations, and require separate administrative efforts to maintain security.
Some businesses also have little to no security on their workstations, meaning that employees are often trusted to follow good security guidelines, with no tools or prompts to aid them.
With data stored across many platforms, including Google Drive and Dropbox, many businesses lack the audit trails, discovery tools and data access controls to ensure that private, sensitive information is labelled correctly and controlled.
New Challenges Require New Solutions
With Windows 7 support ending on January 14th, 2020, and Windows 8 support ending a few years afterwards, steps are already being taken to ensure the successors of these robust and successful operating systems.
However, with success comes popularity, which attracts attention against new threats and strains of malicious software (malware).
As Windows 7 became available in October 2009, advancements in new threat technology have made it possible to compromise the operating system. Therefore, a new blended approach of security is required, and this is what Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 is built upon.
