Microsoft Office 365 (O365) is the subscription-based version of Microsoft Office which is hosted in Microsoft’s cloud. It comes with the standard office productivity tools that Office users will be familiar with including Word, Excel, Outlook, OneDrive and PowerPoint to name a few.
Most business who have Office 365 will be on the Business Premium edition. This provides them with Exchange online (Ie, emails hosted by Microsoft). There are two other applications included with Business Premium: Sharepoint and Teams.
Most firms who sign up to Office 365 will have their vendor complete their user creation, email migration, and installation of the Office software, leaving the client’s users to educate and fend for themselves in what is a very complicated product stack.
This creates unnecessary risk, as the default configuration allows users almost unrestricted access to create content and libraries across the O365 platform.
