Can Microsoft 365 help with security and compliance requirements?

Yes. The biggest security pains for small businesses include email, mobility, user credentials, and compliance. Microsoft 365 Premium offers advanced cyber threat protection and device management.

One of the most significant advantages of Microsoft 365 for small businesses is its Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), a cloud-based filtering service that not only performs anti-phishing, anti-malware and anti-spams on receipt of the email, but continues to monitor and protect against dodgy links and attachments inside users mailboxes. Automatically investigating and responding to attacks, ATP not only gives business owners peace of mind, but the service is easy to deploy and manage.

How does Microsoft 365 manage security for staff personal devices?

Microsoft 365 allows businesses to protect their company data by managing company owned and BYO devices used to access company data through Intune. The cloud-based tool not only allows IT admins to restrict access to company information from selected devices, but it can also set different levels of restriction based on the user or location.

Intune also allows businesses to specify security rules, such as forcing MFA for certain scenarios or blocking access from certain geographical locations entirely.

What apps come with Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 includes some essential applications for businesses and industry professionals, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneDrive, Sharepoint, and Teams.

Apps are available on both desktop and mobile devices. Security and compliance is also taken care of with options available to protect your business data with the Microsoft 365 Business Premium pack.

Discover what makes Boost IT different

"As a small business owner that has just turned 4 years old, we have struggled through day-to-day management of our IT and software systems for my team and business.

We approached several IT providers that wanted large retainers to assist management of our IT systems. We tried IT support providers that did one off jobs that could take days to assist us with our IT problems.

Then we met Boost IT, on a referral from another business that recommended them. Our company BOUW went through the DISP accreditation process and the Essential 8 with Boost IT. The entire process ran like a professional project with weekly project meetings so we were fully aware of their progress.

They are now servicing us with ongoing IT support with rapid call back times within 15 min and assist me and the team with all our IT issues as they arise, no fuss.

Their package support fee structure is cost effective we only get charged for time we use. For any business I cannot recommend highly enough the team from Boost IT, they are like my IT department on call whenever we need them."
