A Modern Workplace with Microsoft
Category: Hi-Tech

Benefits of Microsoft Modern Workplace

Over the last two years, the way people work has drastically transformed. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workforce has become more flexible and geographically distributed. With the rise of dispersed, mostly remote teams, enterprises must equip themselves with all-inclusive tools allowing effective collaboration among all team members. This new approach to employee and work management is inevitable.

Gartner noted that “Remote work” is now just “work’ in its report - The Top 8 Security and Risk Trends We’re Watching. Also, as per the 2021 Gartner CIO survey, 64% of employees are now able to work from home and more than 75% of knowledge workers expect hybrid work environments in the future. With this trend, it is crucial that enterprises must secure and protect their data and assets to provide a safe digital workplace to their employees working from anywhere. Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions offer a secure environment that allows enhanced collaboration, streamlined communication for hybrid teams. Despite where employees work, they can have easy and secure access to the tools, apps, conversations, documents, and resources that they need to stay connected and get the job done.

What is Microsoft Modern Workplace?

Businesses need their employees to work from anywhere and be able to connect and collaborate smoothly. Modernizing a workplace using Microsoft tools can help an enterprise to better engage with employees irrespective of their work location, by enhancing communication and collaboration, while driving employee productivity.

Digital workplaces, powered by Microsoft tools and technology, provide a safe and reliable environment for the hybrid workforce to share sensitive data across the boundaries of the enterprise.

What type of security does Microsoft Modern Workplace offer?

Cloud technologies play an important role in enabling modern workplace solutions. But hybrid, multi-cloud systems are more vulnerable and expand the attack surface as more users connect through unsecured networks. Azure Security Center and Microsoft Defender offer robust security from worms, trojan horses, and several other types of malware to protect enterprise data and assets from malicious access, both on-premise and in the cloud.

In the latest version of Microsoft 365, maximum security was at the top of the feature list. New cybersecurity tools were developed to help enterprises in creating secure environments with the help of a tightly integrated set of security technologies that include:

  • Azure Security Center
  • Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection
  • Azure Advanced Threat Protection
  • Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection
  • Office 365 Threat Intelligence
