In this article you’ll read about Microsoft 365 which appears to be a burning issue nowadays

Complete User Management

So, how can it function, letting end users bring benefit to their workplaces? Here we are to do the following:

  • Give users the tools necessary for them;
  • Assist workers when needed;
  • Secure the company’s valuable data.

In the majority of cases, each part of these functions is treated as a distinctive tools by IT departments. However, Office Servers are on the way of changing this situation. Having merged Active Directory and email, such as Exchange Server, we came up with the idea that it’s possible to obtain a kind of smart communications system, which know what we want. At this time appeared such systems as Lync Server as well as SharePoint, so we were able to cowork as a progressive team instead of being just a disjointed group of people.

Office 365, being created as an answer to outward threats, became a cloud variant of Office Servers. It was a revolution since now we have updated online versions of almost every known server up the sleeve, they include SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, and moreover, you can make use of Skype for Business as well as Office suite. Furthermore, it’s not difficult to get access to these services from any spot in the world, being sure that the valuable information reserved in the cloud is complete protected.

However, the above mentioned tools represent only a small part of the set available. Some tools are thought to be used only by corporations. Nowadays, companies do not choose to work with corporate computers, thats why the users have to bring their own devices, because they are more convenient for them. But what are the ways to provision them?

Threats are not the same now. The mobility is not an illusion anymore, so the old means of protection do not make good a lot. Identity theft as well as zero-day malware are the modern forms of attack, thats why a new level of protection is needed.

Compiling the Solutions

To face these needs we just came up with a list of useful services.It’s necessary to recall that Active Directory seems to be a kind of cement for the systems smarter than some of the mentioned. Furthermore, the services with easy usable protection are better than a complicated one since the complications prevent people from using this security. The company can create a specific identity combining both Active Directory and Azure Active Directory, in this way the tools for administration as well as the solutions become controlled by company governance and control.

Azur AD is an only backup of the majority of cloud solutions created by Microsoft. Finally, there is an only window to enable users and assure the company’s important data. The mentioned tools have been sold by Microsoft for many years as well as being developed and updated all the time. Microsoft has created so many tools that clients and co-workers are completely unfamiliar with them. Having realized that, Microsoft came up with the idea to offer to their clients integrated groups called “Microsoft 365”.

Microsoft 365 essence

Microsoft 365s mail aim deals with providing users with easily understandable and deployable suite, which includes
