Microsoft 365 (Formerly Microsoft Office 365)
Microsoft 365 has all the core Microsoft Office applications—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook—but today’s Microsoft 365 is so much more. With the addition of Teams, OneDrive for Business, Yammer, SharePoint, and OneNote, as well as advanced services such as Delve, Power BI, Sway, Planner, Stream, Forms, and Flow, Microsoft 365 is more powerful than ever before, promoting productivity and quality through improved communication, collaboration, plus a modern, enhanced user experience.
You can use locally installed Microsoft 365 or run the online versions of each of the applications. Each user is given access to Office application tools using their Active Directory credentials. From this portal, they can access email, contacts, and calendars, and create and edit documents online using applications as needed—anytime and from anywhere, on any device.
Microsoft 365 support is managed within the “Admin Center.” As an Admin, you can add or remove users, grant licenses, manage groups and billing information, submit support requests directly to Microsoft, manage and update your organization’s security settings, view meaningful user reports and statistics, check reports on security and compliance, and monitor the health dashboard to determine how Microsoft 365 applications and connectivity are performing.
With one valid enterprise license, each user gets 15 licenses, allowing them to install Microsoft 365 in Five Phones, 5 Tablets, and 5 PCs or Macs. These devices can be managed by the user or admin. The different packages offered for Microsoft 365 are Basic, Standard, and Premium.
To install Office 365 on a home PC, the user only needs to log into the Office.com portal, click “Install Office Apps,” and select Office from the list. Once installed, the user will have instant access to all organization's shared content and files. From the same portal and tab, the user can send an installation link to phones and tablets as an email or text message. Once clicked, all Office applications will download and allow access to all emails, shared content, and files from work.
Sharing with other users is a powerful Microsoft 365 online feature, promoting real-time productive collaboration and convenience. All the applications were designed to allow sharing documents internally and externally. Users can work on documents live while viewing their colleague’s edits and collaboration. Simply click on the “Share” button and enter the name or email address of the person you’re sharing with. You can also send them a copy of the link or an Outlook email.
Security And Reliability
Microsoft 365 has built-in, award-winning security. In addition to malware and spam filtering, organizations can benefit from the extra layers or security measures, such as data loss prevention, multi-factor authentication, advanced threat protection, Safe Links, log-in auditing, and monitoring these threats from an elegant dashboard. All this is included with an Office 365 license. It is much more secure and reliable compared to solutions implemented on-premises. Office 365 is hosted in the cloud using Microsoft Azure, relieving organizations from maintaining data centre requirements. Microsoft patches servers automatically, taking this responsibility off the shoulders of your IT team.
Active Directory is synced from your on-premises servers to Azure and is available even if your on-premises Active Directory is unreachable. Organizations no longer have to build redundancy in their on-premises environment because it is being managed in the cloud.
These features were architected to prevent business disruption and data loss, keeping you powering ahead.
Microsoft 365 offers plenty of storage capacity for Files. OneDrive provides up to 5TB of storage per user, depending on the Enterprise license. Your IT staff will be pleased to know that they no longer have to manage storage space locally. If the user’s account is intentionally disabled, all files will be automatically archived or removed after 30 days. Files can be dragged and dropped to OneDrive and accessed from your other devices. Your OneDrive automatically syncs your files and changes to all your other devices, including deletions. No more saving and reconciling multiple versions of files!
Updates no longer need to be installed in each machine or pushed out using Group Policy, system configuration manager, or similar management tools. All Microsoft 365 updates are automatically downloaded and installed, just like Windows updates.
As an Admin, you can choose to set up users on a standard release or on a targeted release. The standard release is usually a few months behind the targeted release. Most companies set up all users on standard release and IT staff on targeted release, so they have a chance to test new features before general roll out to the rest of the organization. Either way, all applications stay current without intervention, or users can continue to run all Microsoft 365 applications while updates are installing in the background.
With on-premises file storage and exchange servers, everything must be maintained by the IT team. Shared file locations, email distribution lists, archiving, and security groups must be created and maintained. With Office 365, this functionally can be self-managed by users, which is convenient for everyone and reduces user requests. Users can create groups, assign members, and set up teams.
What Is The Microsoft Azure Cloud And How Can It Help My Business?
Microsoft Azure is a set of cloud services that help companies overcome business challenges. Azure offers organizations the ability to effectively and affordably manage data back-up, disaster recovery, and security.
Microsoft Azure Data Back-Up
With Azure backup solutions, you can protect your data and applications to avoid costly business interruptions or to meet compliance requirements. Securely extend your on-premises backup storage and data archiving solutions to the cloud—reducing cost and complexity, while achieving efficiency and scalability.
•Increase capacity while reducing costs: With a low-cost, massively scalable, tiered backup storage solution in the cloud, you’ll reduce forecasting risks while transforming capital expenditure commitments to a pay-as-you-go cloud model.
•Manage backup and data archiving: Simplify backup and data archiving with backup-as-a-service and hybrid storage solutions that easily restore data and applications from the cloud.
•Ensure compliance: Benefit from the most comprehensive compliance portfolio available, get more than 99 years of retention for your backup data and pick any Azure region around the globe for your backup and archive location.
Utilize Azure to back up on-premises data, Azure data, and applications, and to archive on-premises data.
Disaster Recover With Microsoft Azure
Even a minor outage can put you at a competitive disadvantage. So, be ready with a business continuity plan that includes disaster recovery for all your major IT systems—without the expense of secondary infrastructure.
•Protect all of your major IT systems. Affordably: Eliminate the hassle and cost of secondary data centres and tap into nearly infinite capacity at a moment’s notice with a cloud-based data recovery solution designed for the needs of enterprises.
•Unify data management, security, and protection: Achieve business goals for continuity and compliance throughout the lifecycle of your apps.
•Ensure apps work when you need them the most: Rest assured during an outage or disaster scenario with a disaster recovery solution that protects and natively supports the widest range of enterprise applications of any cloud disaster recovery provider.
•Perform tests any time for complete confidence: When a disaster hits, the last thing you want is to run into a problem. Test your business continuity plans, or run dev-test copies of production workloads in Azure whenever you need to, and without impacting users. Plus, test new versions of applications with copies of live data, and then seamlessly put the new version into production in your datacenter.
Security With Microsoft Azure
With an increase in security breaches and cybercrimes, companies are rightfully concerned about the security of their data in the cloud. Azure has several options for managing and monitoring your assets …
•Understand security state across on-premises and cloud workloads: Automatically discover and onboard new Azure resources, and apply security policies across your hybrid cloud workloads to ensure compliance with security standards. Collect, search, and analyze security data from a variety of sources, including firewalls and other partner solutions.
•Find vulnerabilities and remediate quickly: Continuously monitor the security of your machines, networks, and Azure services using hundreds of built-in security assessments or create your own.
•Limit your exposure to threats: Block malware and other unwanted code by applying application controls adapted to your specific workloads and powered by machine learning. Enable just-in-time, controlled access to management ports on Azure VMs to drastically reduce the surface area exposed to brute force and other network attacks.
•Detect and respond swiftly to attacks: Use advanced analytics and the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph to get an edge over evolving cyberattacks. Leverage built-in behavioural analytics and machine learning to identify attacks and zero-day exploits. Streamline investigation with interactive tools and contextual threat intelligence.
