Why Do You Recommend Business Premium For Small Businesses?

We recommend Microsoft 365 Business Premium for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), seeking a powerful suite of tools without the hefty price tag.

This solution offers an optimal blend of applications, enhanced security features, and affordability tailored for SMBs. The flexibility to switch seamlessly between the desktop, web, and mobile versions of essential applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, coupled with communication tools like email, chat, and virtual conferencing, makes it a seamless and highly adaptable platform.

We often recommend the E5 license for larger businesses, which has a higher investment; but for SMBs, we find the Business Premium licenses provide a similar value without the hefty price tag. The real value of Business Premium lies in its robust security controls. It is equipped with enterprise-grade cybersecurity measures that are essential in today's digital ecosystem to thwart phishing, ransomware, and other sophisticated threats. Features such as conditional access ensure that only authorized personnel can view sensitive files, while remote data removal capabilities offer peace of mind in the event of device loss or theft, making Business Premium not just a tool for productivity, but a guardian of business continuity.  

Here is an overview of the key features and benefits of Microsoft 365:
