Microsoft 365 Business Premium’s All-in-One Answer

Share and discover the transformative power of Microsoft 365 Business Premium, a comprehensive suite of productivity tools designed to streamline operations, enhance security, and empower closer collaboration for small- to medium-sized businesses.

A significant upgrade from the Business Basic and Standard options, Microsoft 365 Business Premium is the vendor’s top offering for SMBs, bringing it closer to Enterprise tiers in terms of security and scalability.

From Chaos to Cohesion

Unlocking potential with Microsoft 365 Business Premium

“Microsoft 365 Business Premium is the ally that businesses need in transforming operations without adding risk.”
Supporting up to 300 users, the Microsoft 365 Business Premium plan offers organizations an impressive array of productivity tools, along with enterprise-grade security features including mobile device management and granular access controls.

The insatiable demand for agile and scalable software solutions have made cloud services a vital enabler of business growth. However it has also left many businesses tackling increased IT complexity. But even among this chaos, productivity and efficiency should never come at the cost of security. Fortunately, Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers both.

While Business Premium includes all the same features and functions as lesser subscription plans, its extra security and data management capabilities put it closer in line with Enterprise plans. Central to Business Premium is the inclusion of Microsoft Intune, a powerful tool for managing access across mobile devices.

Business Premium is the ideal choice for organizations facing specific regulatory requirements or those with industry-specific use cases. For example, the inclusion of advanced features like eDiscovery and litigation hold, make it an invaluable asset in legal firms and departments by ensuring data integrity and compliance.

A standout feature of the elite Business Premium plan is Microsoft Intune, which offers a range of features that are essential in securing remote workers. Although remote and hybrid work is now the standard rather than the exception, mobility introduces unique security challenges. The conventional notion of a secure perimeter is no longer relevant in an era when employees routinely access documents and data in any location through any device.

Securing remote workforces with Microsoft Intune

Intune is a cloud-based service that gives administrators a centralized platform for managing apps, identities, and devices for remote and hybrid workers. It supports a range of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and macOS to ensure that businesses can manage a variety of devices with ease. Its management capabilities extend to business-and employee-owned devices to enforce organization-wide compliance with zero-trust security.

Application management is also more streamlined with Intune. Security administrators can deploy, update, and remove apps with ease and grant or revoke access rights on a granular basis. Thanks to automated policy deployment, the platform greatly simplifies administrative workloads and empowers employees with various self-service functions. For example, people can use the Company Portal app to reset their passwords or PIN codes or send requests for installing specific apps or joining company user groups.

Dependable data protection for any device

The Business Premium edition also incorporates Azure Information Protection (AIP), a feature designed to elevate security for data held in the cloud. Since cloud storage is a key component of Microsoft 365, this feature offers a much-needed framework to apply security classification labels to corporate data. It’s seamlessly integrated into the Microsoft ecosystem, and it works through File Explorer and PowerShell to greatly enhance the management of sensitive data.

AIP also includes an on-premises scanner that gives administrators the means to scan their on-premises file repositories for any potentially sensitive content that still needs to be labelled and classified and, if necessary, protected by additional security measures. For example, let’s say a healthcare provider has a policy to classify all documents and data sets that include social security numbers or patient IDs. Once installed, AIP scans all file repositories at regular intervals to identify and classify any instances where social security or patient ID numbers are included. The IT team receives reports on the scanned repositories, enabling them to apply protective measures as needed.
