Benefits of upgrading

1. Enhanced security and compliance:

Business Premium offers advanced security features, including identity and access management, cyberthreat protection, and sensitive information protection. It helps to protect your business data from unauthorised access, phishing attacks, and data leaks and its compliance tools help you meet industry standards and regulations.

2. Full suite of Office apps:

Business Premium provides both web-based and desktop versions of the Office apps so you can work online or offline with familiar tools like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. You can also collaborate seamlessly across devices and platforms using Microsoft Teams and Loop.

3. Device management:

You can manage your devices more effectively by enforcing security policies, managing updates, and ensuring consistent user experiences. This is ideal for businesses with remote workers or a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy.

4. Sensitive data protection:

With privacy and data security never more important, Business Premium allows you to discover, classify, and protect sensitive information within your organisation. It prevents the accidental sharing of confidential data and safeguards intellectual property and customer information.

5. Premium support:

Business Premium subscribers receive priority assistance via phone and web support for technical issues to help resolve problems quickly to minimise downtime. There are also benefits for your IT support partner in managing your Microsoft licences.
