Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers the most value-added benefits. The service is an oasis for small to medium size businesses (SMBs). And having so much access to the Microsoft ecosystem is a foundation for businesses of every budget and scale. However, for SMBs specifically, where businesses previously could not previously imagine adopting a remote workforce, Business Premium and its offerings are providing a lifeline in this constantly transitional and transformational age of working.
The Business Premium assets are so strong that our own information has only been skimming the surface. And with that in mind we wanted to delve a little deeper into some of the more complicated facets of Business Premium. Specifically, security.
Microsoft 365 Business Premium has built-in security that reinforces your cyber threat defense
Security isn’t just a main focal point because of media surrounding the latest data breaches and cyber threats. While initiatives are made to focus on the larger vested interests (hospital ransomware attacks, for example) and danger to the general public, that doesn’t mean SMBs should be forgotten. Microsoft agrees, which is why Microsoft 365 Business Premium includes access controls and other data loss preventative measures.
Data loss prevention should be a priority for us all. Our information is constantly being put out into the ether in ways we can’t control. As basic consumers, we rely on the businesses we trust to protect us as well as themselves.

Threat protection
Data protection
Business Premium’s data protection features help organizations safeguard their business-critical data and ensure only authorized personnel has continued access to it. Even though cyber defense is the priority, there are a multitude of added benefits of data protection and control.
Device management
Business Premium offers device management features that allow administrators to have the visibility and control needed to limit or grant access to employees with enrolled devices. In the same way, cyber threats are a nightmare scenario, even something as mildly troublesome as a disgruntled employee, although a much lower-level threat, it’s important to be mindful that data leaks can come from anywhere and business need to protect themselves from everyone.
