Get the same Security and Compliance Tools but Avoid Paying the Full Microsoft 365 Enterprise Price!

Does your organization have security and compliance needs, but you aren’t ready to pay for everything in the Microsoft 365 E5 Suite? 

This past February, Microsoft added new advanced security and compliance offering bundles to their price list. These packages are great for businesses who are not yet ready to use or to pay for the highest-end Microsoft365 E5 bundle – which runs at $57 per user.
