More Reasons to Jump to the Cloud with Microsoft 365: Security & Mobility

Microsoft 365 migration benefits - security and mobility

Recently we tackled just two of the big benefits of moving from an on-premise traditional Microsoft Office with email setup to Microsoft 365. Those benefits were cutting out expensive, confusing licensing costs and eliminating update and upgrade issues. Today we want to talk about two more benefits of M365 that should be on your mind as you consider what options you need.

The Best Security, All the Time

Microsoft is constantly improving security. They need to design the best cybersecurity measures for themselves and for all the businesses that use their services. And Microsoft has a ton of resources to dedicate to the security issue. You get to take advantage of that.

As part of getting the most up to date versions of your applications every day with Microsoft 365, you’re also automatically getting the best security immediately. If you’re looking for secure cloud solutions that meet compliance needs, or a higher level of security than you might want to design yourself in your own network… Microsoft 365 hands it to you.

Your People & Your Business Can Be Fluid, Mobile, & Productive

Microsoft 365 lets your people go where they need to go and work comfortably from wherever they want to work. Business today is no longer chained to a desktop in an office. Your people may be in and out of the building, on the road, working from home, and collaborating online rather than in person. Microsoft 365 not only enables this, it ensures your security, privacy, and ease of use while you’re doing it.

Your apps are accessible anywhere, anytime, on pretty much any device, with all your information synchronized. This is the benefit of cloud-based tools! Once you have it, you will not want to go back, because it’s convenient. Out on your lunch break and need to check your email? There’s an app for that on your phone. Need to look at a document? It’s synchronized to your device in OneDrive with the changes your co-worker just made a hundred miles away.

M365 plans such as Business Premium include services like Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and Yammer, which make long-distance team collaboration easy in the cloud. These services might be extra costs, unfeasible to implement, or unavailable if you’re stuck with the desktop installation model of Office.

The bottom line

Everyone now has to consider cybersecurity. Everyone is already using the cloud every day (even if you don’t realize it). These issues are here and they’re changing how we work and how businesses operate. There are fewer and fewer reasons why you shouldn’t be secure and mobile all the time whenever you want – and Microsoft 365 can help you with that.
