Microsoft 365 Business
Premium vs Standard

Spot The Difference

Microsoft 365 Business Standard is one of the most popular Business SKUs for small to medium businesses – and for good reason. It incorporates everything needed to run a successful, collaborative business with email, desktop Office apps, and cloud storage.

But when it comes to cloud and email security, Microsoft 365 Business Standard only comes with the basic cyber security tools to help prevent and protect against real-time threats. Microsoft 365 Business premium identifies those vulnerabilities and helps navigate potential gaps in security.

Five Points to a Layered Security Approach

Identify Security

In its FY18 report, the ICO revealed that four out of five leading causes of data breaches are down to human error. Microsoft 365 Business Premium helps to combat this by enabling features such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and self-service password reset to keep user credentials secure.

Device Security

With more businesses adopting flexible working, securing remote devices is vital to ensuring data integrity. By integrating select features from Intune, Microsoft 365 Business Premium enables companies to protect sensitive data via Mobile Device Management (MDM) and encryption policies.

Application Security

Using Intune App Protection, Microsoft 365 Business Premium can restrict individuals from copying/pasting/saving sensitive company data to personal apps on their device, ensuring data integrity.

Email Security

Cyber criminals are rapidly targeting Exchange Online for an easy point of entry. Microsoft 365 Business Premium now comes with Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for protection against malware, ransomware and zero-day threats, alongside Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to monitor sensitive data from being transmitted.

Document Security

To prevent data leakage, Microsoft 365 Business Premium comes with Azure Information Protection enabling secure document sharing, sensitive document tracking and the ability to revoke access to certain documents.
