Get monthly security updates and releases on new features
Users of Office 365 say one of the biggest advantages is the frequent updates and quick access to innovative new features and capabilities. Users get new version releases quickly without having to wait around until a decision comes down or enough money in the budget allows upgrading.
Plenty of storage
With Office 365 all users get a terabyte — that’s about one trillion bytes, or 1,000 gigabytes — of storage on One Drive. And, the storage is online, so it’s easy to share with people in or outside your company, or access the files from any online location, with or without a VPN connection to your desktop.
Get relief from security worries
Office 365’s applications use 128-bit SSL/TSK encryption so even if your files get grabbed during transmission, they’re not readable. This can help relieve the stress that comes from knowing important company data is being accessed from multiple devices, platforms, and places. The Microsoft Office 365 environment can be customized based on your company’s specific needs. Not only that, it is constantly maintained, enhanced, and verified with redundancy at every layer.

Collaborate from anywhere
One of the biggest advantages of Office 365 is the ability to work online from anywhere. This greatly enhances team collaboration, allowing teams to keep in sync with features like multi-party HD video, content sharing, and shared calendars.
Multiple versions of key documents floating around can cause some major headaches — Microsoft 365 allows the user to control who sees and edits a document. All users are working together on one document to add and track content or comments. This saves considerable time on back-and-forth in email and confusion on who has the very latest version of a file.
Having all users on the same software version can also save time — no more issues because a document was created in a newer version and not saved in compatibility mode..
Most businesses can’t afford to upgrade all employees’ operating systems at one time. Office 365 has that covered too – it’s even compatible with all the way back to Windows XP (SP3).
Single sign-on — one less password to remember
If your network runs Server 2008 Active Directory, you can configure it to allow users to log on to the domain and be automatically authenticated to Office 365. It’s not exactly a true single sign-on but it does combine users’ passwords for Active Directory and Office 365.
Want Exchange but don’t have Exchange Server 2010?
It’s a hit to the budget and takes some overhead to deploy Exchange Serve 2010, but with Exchange online you can still get the benefits. Exchange Online is available as a standalone but you can also get it as part of an Office 365 Plan that includes Office, SharePoint and Skype for Business.
