Maximizing Business Success: The Advantages of Microsoft 365 Business Premium over Basic

If you are looking for the best productivity suite for your organization, you might be wondering whether to choose Microsoft 365 Business Premium or Basic. Both plans offer web and mobile versions of Office apps with premium features, cloud services like email, file storage, and Teams. But what are the benefits of upgrading to Microsoft 365 Business Premium? Here are some reasons why you should consider it.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium Features Advanced Security Capabilities

Did you know 60% of small businesses say they lack the skills to deal with Security issues? Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers advanced security features that include::
  • Intune: a cloud-based service that lets you manage and secure your devices (PCs, laptops, tablets, phones) from a single dashboard. You can control access to your data, enforce security policies, update software, wipe data remotely, and more.
  • Azure Information Protection: a service that lets you classify and encrypt your sensitive data (emails, documents, etc.) based on predefined or custom labels. You can control who can access your data and track how it is used.
  • Advanced Threat Protection (ATP): a service that protects your email, files, and apps from malware, phishing, ransomware, and other attacks. It uses machine learning and behavioral analysis to detect and block suspicious activity and provide remediation options.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium Ensures Enhanced Access and Data Control

Business Premium also gives you more control over who can access your data and how they can use it. You can manage your devices remotely and enforce conditional access policies to help secure access to company data.

Desktop and Web Versions of Office Apps with Premium Features

Microsoft 365 Business Premium gives you access to desktop and web versions of popular Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access, and Publisher. You can create, edit, and share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, emails, notes, databases, and publications with ease and professionalism. You also get premium features that enhance your productivity and creativity, such as:
    • AI-powered tools like Editor, Designer, Ideas, and Presenter Coach that can help you write better, design better, analyze better, and present better.
    • Co-authoring and real-time collaboration that allow you to work with others on the same document at the same time.
    • Cloud storage and file sharing lets you access and share your files from anywhere with OneDrive and SharePoint.
    • Online meetings and chat that enable you to communicate and collaborate with your team and customers using Teams.
    • Webinar hosting and attendee registration allow you to create engaging online events using Teams.
    • Scheduling helps you manage your bookings and availability using Bookings.

Microsoft 365 Business Benefits Focus on Cost-Effectiveness

Business Premium may seem more expensive than Business Standard at first glance, but it can save you money in the long run. By upgrading to Business Premium, you get all the security and management features that you would otherwise have to buy separately from other vendors. You also get more value from your Office apps, as they are integrated with the cloud services and security features. You can reduce IT costs and complexity by having everything in one place.
As you can see, Business Premium offers many benefits over Business Standard for businesses that need more security and control over their data and devices. Overall, it is a more robust and long-term plan for organizations that are committed to building a security-first culture.
