Whether you call them SMEs (Small or Medium Enterprises) or SMBs (Small or Medium Businesses), the facts show that, as a group, these organisations suffer the most cyberattacks. Small businesses endured 55% of all attacks last year.Where breaches do occur resulting from such attacks, 52% are down to user error.
These are just some of the stats outlined by Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365 in his article earlier this month extolling the enhanced security features of Microsoft 365 Business, designed specifically for SME/Bs rather than large corporations.
The IT Agency (TITA) has been aware of various security deficiencies in Office 365 when applied straight out of the box, which is why we developed our Office 365 Standard Operating Environment (SOE) to fill some of the holes.
We’ve actually gone further in developing an Advanced Operating Environment (AOE) providing even better protection which we’re happy to implement after consultation with each individual client.
Our SOE and AOE environments are both designed to raise each client’s Secure Score to 150 and cover all the security points mentioned in the article.
TITA also acts as the virtual Chief Security Officer (vCSO) and virtual Chief Information Office (vCIO) for all of our clients, learning in depth about new security features as they become available from Microsoft and, included in our user Managed Service Plans, we perform all necessary admin functions required to implement upgrades behind the scenes.
In line with our existing promotion of Microsoft 365 Business for its enhanced security features, TITA clients currently enjoying an Office 365 E3 plan will shortly be offered the opportunity of seamlessly switching to a new Microsoft 365 Business plan.Less cost, more security – why wouldn’t you?
Whatever the IT security requirements for your SME/B, our experts at The IT Agency are ahead of the game – call us on (02) 8317 4730 and get your Secure Score soaring to 150 and beyond.
