  1. Azure Advanced Threat Protection
  2. Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection
  3. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection

While each of these solutions offers value to its users, there’s been some confusion around the similar naming of these products. Let’s clear up confusion by taking a closer look at each of these products and their features, benefits, and intended use cases.

What is the Microsoft 365 Business Plan?

What is the Microsoft 365 Business Plan?

Microsoft 365 Business Plan is all about combining the offerings of Office 365, Windows Intune, and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Aimed at small to mid-sized organizations, this new plan looks to create a unified ecosystem of productivity, security and collaboration across a business at an affordable cost of use.

With a reasonably high user limit of up to 300, the Microsoft 365 Business Plan is the perfect solution for your small to medium business or organization. Especially if you’re specifically looking to purchase both Office 365 and Windows 10 and receive enhanced Microsoft Security features.

A Guide to Archiving Mail in Office 365 and Handling Terminated Users

A Guide to Archiving Mail in Office 365 and Handling Terminated Users

“Immutability” is the industry-standard term for “preserving data in the system so that it is discoverable and cannot be destroyed or altered."

With Exchange Server 2016 with Enterprise CAL or Exchange Online Plan 2 (included in Office 365 E3 and Office 365 E5 plans), Microsoft enables organizations to preserve individual or all mailbox items for discovery natively, keeping those items within the Exchange infrastructure. This approach is called, In-Place hold.

One significant benefit of hold - as opposed to separate, read-only storage - is that items are preserved within the Exchange infrastructure. This preserves more of the information, including metadata, and makes management easier for IT admins. Users benefit because they can manage their mailboxes using the familiar Outlook interface. From an IT-perspective, In-Place Hold eliminates the necessity and complexity of maintaining a separate infrastructure and potentially storage for Exchange items.
