Microsoft has revealed a new offering for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) called Microsoft 365, which incorporates Windows 10 and Office 365, along with management and security features.
The product will target enterprises and SMBs, giving subscribed businesses the device management feature called Enterprise Mobility + Security, which provides an identity-driven security solution that offers an integrated approach to security challenges
Microsoft calls this “an evolution of its secure production enterprise offering”, according to Techradar.
‘Productivity, security and device management’
“Microsoft 365 represents a fundamental shift in how we will design, build and go to market to address our customers’ needs for a modern workplace,” said Microsoft via a blog post.
“It’s a more cohesive approach and reflects the shift our partners and our mutual customers are making – from viewing productivity, security and device management as individual workloads to seeking a comprehensive approach to secure productivity,” it added.
When businesses deploy, manage and secure devices in a ‘streamlined fashion’ they will also get a single central console.
