The added security benefits of Microsoft 365

All businesses must take data security seriously, and so Office 365 includes several features to help keep your business data safe. For example, multi-factor authentication adds an extra layer of protection to user accounts, while built-in malware and spam filters help protect email inboxes from malicious content.
