You have a job to do – even if it’s from your dining room table. But your office toolset has limited storage, minimal collaboration tools and lacks strong, comprehensive security measures. Collaboration and productivity from home is a struggle for thousands across the country who aren’t using Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365).

The web-based office suite of apps helps you get the job done no matter where you are in the world or who you need to collaborate with. If you can connect to the internet, you can quickly connect with the files and people you need to be productive. The best part: Microsoft 365 has advanced security features built in so you can relax knowing your data is backed by the industry’s leading security technology.

What is Microsoft 365 with Teams?

The Microsoft 365 suite is a subscription service of office production tools that live in the Microsoft cloud, making it available to desktop and mobile devices. Teams, the world’s most powerful collaboration tool, is included in the suite. Along with the C Spire Business 24/7 support desk, the service comes with a gigantic 1TB of secure Microsoft cloud storage, where your apps and documents securely live. The Microsoft 365 tools not only talk to each other, they allow quick sharing of files and real-time edits with your co-workers for better collaboration. Microsoft 365’s most popular tools include:

What can Microsoft 365 do for you?

On top of giving your remote team the ability to work from anywhere and on any device, Microsoft 365 can help your business be more agile, secure and cost-effective. Here are the top three benefits:

SCALABILITY

Gone are the days of needing to obtain and install new software and equipment for each new employee. With Microsoft 365, simply add a license and your employee gains a login with full access to the suite. Need to remove a license? That’s simple, too. Growing and changing businesses need flexibility that Microsoft 365 can provide.

ALWAYS UP TO DATE

Microsoft 365 doesn’t have a year in its name because it is regularly updated with the latest version of Office. If you purchase Office 2019, you forever have that edition. Sure, you’ll get security updates, but not software updates that add new features or upgrade to the next year’s version. Eventually, Microsoft will stop providing security patches for older versions, like they are doing soon with Office 2010.

ENTERPRISE-GRADE SECURITY

Securing your data and conversations is a priority for Microsoft, which is why Microsoft 365 with Teams meets key international, regional and industry-specific standards and terms, with more than 1,000 security and privacy controls, including:

  • Multi-factor authentication is an added layer of protection during the log-in process. If a cybercriminal did gain access to your password, he would also have to get past a second layer of protection, which can vary depending on your needs.
  • Encrypted email and Data Loss Prevention. With encrypted email, Microsoft 365 makes sure no one other than your intended recipient can open and read your sent emails. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) ensures critical and sensitive information doesn’t get sent outside of your organization. This also applies to SharePoint, OneDrive, Excel and Word.
