Why Microsoft 365 is a Solid Option for Businesses

Microsoft 365 has been on the market for a while now, and we thought it would be a good time to go into the different tiers of the platform to give you an idea of what it is, why it is useful, and how your business fits into the latest cloud platform offered by Microsoft. Let’s start with what it is.

Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based bundle that includes a virtual Windows 10 desktop, access to Microsoft 365 applications, OneDrive storage, and access to security features including device management and app and data security. It is the most comprehensive cloud-based package Microsoft offers and comes in three major products that have their own tiers. They are:

  • Microsoft 365 Business
  • Microsoft 365 Enterprise
  • Microsoft 365 Education

Let’s take a brief look at Microsoft 365 Business.
