In the last few months, as a result of the pandemic, a record number of businesses have switched to remote working, using cloud technology such as Office 365 to ensure that they can operate fully with the majority, if not all key staff working from home rather than in the office. However, despite the many benefits of the shift to remote working, it has also exposed businesses to further security threats, for example, consent phishing attacks.
Microsoft Office 365 is a group of software and services subscriptions which provide productivity software and related services to customers, changing the way businesses work. It is the ideal platform to achieve your business’ productivity as it accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop meaning all files are synchronized so employees can pick up work right where you left off. Here are the main benefits of moving to Office 365.
Protection. Office 365 offers data protection and backup so you have peace of mind that you’ll never lose the data you use.
Payment. Works on a pay as you go rate. If your business grows, simply pay for additional services and extra storage. This means your business doesn’t need to buy new hard drive for storage space and you can just pay for what you need.
Cloud-based. It is available on the cloud, so you don’t have to worry about servers. It can also integrate with your company’s on-premises solutions if needs be.
Employees. As it is based in the cloud, it allows you and your employees to work from absolutely anywhere on any form of device without security being an issue.
Efficiency. Once you’ve moved to Office 365 you’ll have instant access to updates and bug fixes as soon as they’re ready and issued by Microsoft so you’ll always have an efficient system with the newest updates.

Microsoft Teams is provided as a part of Microsoft Office 365 services. The idea is to provide a place where people can easily communicate and share data, outside of back-and-forth email methods, but within the secure environment of enterprise level computing. Here are the benefits it brings for your business.
Online Meetings. Never miss a meeting again with Microsoft Teams. You can host, live stream or even join in a conference call using the software, meeting your business needs (see what I did there).
Chat. Communicate with your team through the chat function, which makes sure you keep everyone in the know. Options to create a private or group chat are present whilst sharing files and co-authoring content is easier to do than ever before.
Phone System and Calling Plans. Receiving, making and transferring calls has never been easier. Through Microsoft Teams, you can do all of these through your phone, PC, Mac or mobile, whatever is easiest for you and your business.
Integrated Office 365 Apps. Every single app on Office 365 is built for easy access to other popular apps such as SharePoint and OneNote. Everything is integrated.
Customisation. You choose how your workplace looks, and what apps and services are the most important. Microsoft Teams allows you to put all these in one place. Organisation at its finest.
