Microsoft Office 365 is an industry-leading, secure, cloud-based collaboration platform. But more often than not, Office 365 is mistaken for little more than email, Word, Excel and PowerPoint in the cloud. However, it is so much more.

 

Here are our top 5 reasons why migrating to Office 365 will benefit your business and help enable remoteworking.

  • Advanced threat analytics: This unique feature scans emails as they land into inboxes for malicious links and attachments preventing malware attacks.
