You Should Be Taking Advantage of These Microsoft Modern Workplace Automation and Security StandardsWith geographically diverse teams and a constantly-shifting business environment, it’s clear that you need to adjust your operations to support this new face of business. With the Microsoft Modern Workplace standards in place, you’ll quickly find that your business can stay relevant with the most important requirements such as exceptional security for all devices, flexible IT cost structures, and a reduced emphasis on internal hardware.
What is the Microsoft Modern Workplace?
There are many different definitions for a “modern workplace”, but the concept centers around the ability to work when, where and how your teams need to work so they can be productive. That might mean editing a secure document on their mobile device or accessing remote databases and business applications on the road.
Having a secure, reliable network within your physical office building is a base requirement for business. Keeping up with the needs of a flexible remote workforce requires additional strategies. Microsoft has spent the past few years identifying the needs of modern workers, and crafting a solution that will help companies maintain secure, extensible solutions regardless of their physical location.
Microsoft has specifically addressed these needs with Microsoft Teams, unified endpoint management and multiple layers of security.
Microsoft Teams provides a secure and accessible option for teams to collaborate internally, as well as pull in external contractors, vendors and customers to the conversation. With voice calling, chat, video calling and more, Microsoft Teams is fully integrated with Microsoft 365 applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and SharePoint so you are able to confidentially share documents while maintaining robust user permissions.
Unified Endpoint Management
Each device that is used to access your organization’s network is a potential point of failure for your security. With Microsoft’s Unified Endpoint Management, your endpoints are more visible — and thus, more defensible. This helps reduce the possibility of hackers gaining access to your sensitive business systems through a less-than-secure access point such as a personal device or home PC.
Layered Security Solutions
Maintaining collaboration and endpoint management within the Microsoft stack means you are able to manage security more effectively. Microsoft Outlook is a cloud-based application that includes email scans for malware and ransomware before the emails are even delivered to users. Zero-day attacks are also addressed, and phishing attacks are blocked. These aggressive security solutions enhance your IT service provider’s ability to maintain a secure infrastructure for your business.
Empowering Employees to be Productive with Microsoft Modern Workplace
With a stated goal of reducing duplication, improving automation and collaboration, the Microsoft Modern Workplace provides a comprehensive dematerialization of the workforce. With the cloud driving new solution sets, companies are able to reduce their reliance on physical hardware and shift their data storage and application hosting to more virtual solutions. This provides ample flexibility for companies of all sizes. Anytime your organization is faced with shifts in the market that could create an economic downturn — or the need to quickly scale up operations — having this type of cloud-based infrastructure and working environment is ideal.
