intelligent security, collaboration and productivity tools.
Working when you want, how you want, without compromising on security.
Full circle solution
Microsoft 365 is a full circle solution that brings together powerful productivity tools available across devices, and highly intelligent advanced threat protection, to enhance efficiency and teamwork.
Work how you want, when you want
The way in which we work is changing. Many businesses are adopting BYOD policies (bring your own device) and remote working options to facilitate greater productivity and creativity. The familiar tools, powerful collaboration capabilities and flexibility within Microsoft 365 make this even easier for businesses to implement and employees to take advantage of.
Usually the very thought of personal and mobile devices being used for business purposes both on and off-site, and using those devices to connect to networks outside of the business, would send a chill up the spine of many IT managers (and not in a good way). Microsoft 365 offers advanced threat protection and intelligent security features that make sure productivity tools are easily accessible, across devices, without compromising security.
Say goodbye to 'good enough'. Say hello to Microsoft 365.
What do you get when you add together a legacy back-end system, an OS that needs a new lease of life, a treasure trove of devices, and a bookmark tab full of apps? An unproductive team and a logistical security nightmare.
Microsoft 365 is made up of Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility and Security (EM+S). A powerhouse OS, a flexible suite of productivity tools, and an advanced intelligent security suite that will give you a unified solution.
As great together as they are individually, you can mix and match Windows 10, Office 365 and EM+S to suit your needs. Not ready to move to Windows 10 just yet? No problem, you can still have Office 365. Already have Office 365? EM+S is the perfect security add-on. So wherever you are in your Office 365 journey, there are solutions to match your needs.

What about Office 365 APIs?
It's never been easier to create a unique experience using Office 365.
With Office 365 APIs you can easily incorporate Office 365 data into your app, or create a custom experience within Office 365 itself. APIs follow REST and OData 2.0 standards for data transport, and use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication and authorisation. You'll be able to make use of native application development and so much more – the possibilities for integration are endless.
You may already have access to an Office 365 Developer suite if you are a Visual Studio Ultimate / Premium / MSDN subscriber. It's one of the many additional benefits you get. If you're not sure, call our team on +44 (0)1364 654100 and they'll be able to get you started.
If you've already got an Office 365 subscription plan (Midsize Business, E1, E3 or F1) then the Office 365 Developer suite will fit into your infrastructure. If you'd like to use it on a test machine, it will use one of your five device allowances.
Detect an attack, secure your data, protect your identity with EM+S.
81% of all hacking related breaches use compromised details. 75% of individuals only use 3 or 4 passwords across all of their accounts.
It's no longer just about endpoint security. A user's identity is one of the most common attack vectors today. Introducing Enterprise Mobility and Security (EM+S), the intelligent security tool that aids productivity.
As part of EM+S you get a suite of tools that help you proactively defend against breaches and effectively isolate incidents.
With Windows Defender Security Centre you have possession of an advanced behavioural tool that, in the event of a breach, allows you to trace origin and identify individual users and machines that have been compromised, allowing you to take appropriate action to stop the attack spreading.
Using behavioural analysis you'll be immediately alerted to any suspicious behaviour – such as a user logging onto other users' machines, downloading and trying to run unsanctioned applications, etc.
Tools like Azure Active Directory Premium and inTune, which are part of Microsoft Enterprise Mobility and Security (EM+S), have been designed to prevent users' accounts being compromised and allow:
- Multi-factor authentication. Users have to sign in with something they know, something they have, something they are.
- Single-sign-on (SSO). Users only need to sign in once using multi-factor authentication. Less time is spent signing into apps, cyber attackers have less opportunity to intercept password inputs.
- Identity access management. Manage access by role and identity.
- Mobile device management. If a device is lost or stolen, remotely lock it or wipe all or parts of the data it holds.
- Data Loss Prevention (DLP) You can enforce the classification of documents by users to ensure they are stored and shared in the correct way. Easily identify and manage sensitive information across desktop and cloud apps.
