Cyber-crime is hardly out of the news these days and we know Microsoft 365 is an irresistible target for cybercriminals.

Bringing together best-in-class Office apps with powerful cloud services and device management makes Microsoft 365 a great choice for SMBs. However, its popularity also makes it an irresistible target for cybercriminals. Recently, cybercriminals have shifted their efforts to target SMBs that are unprepared, seeking out easy opportunities for huge financial gain.

Even Microsoft Teams has become a new target. With the recent lockdown, many businesses are starting to work remotely using Teams, and the increase in Teams users means that it’s become an attractive platform for cybercriminals to target. As discovered by researchers from Abnormal Security, cyber-attacks have been carried out through impersonating Teams notifications in order to steal Microsoft 365 logins.

With Microsoft 365 Secure, you can make sure your customers get a multi-layered approach to secure their data by defending your customers' Microsoft 365 mailbox against zero-day threats with Vade Secure, and automatically backing up mailbox data with Acronis 365 Mailbox Backup.

*Please note this video was created in 2019 when the product name was true to that time.

Remember, we also have sales and marketing materials to help you sell Office 365 Secure to your customers in our Academy. Show your customers the best way to protect their business, and email brand[email protected] to have these materials customised in your brand.

Going forward, the name of our Office 365 Secure product will change to Microsoft 365 Secure.

Microsoft changed the names of their Office 365 SMB offerings on April 21st 2020*. The changes refer to the SKU names only and all pricing and features remain the same. It's hoped that these changes will better reflect the features and benefits included in each SKU and make it easier for you and your customers to understand.

We’ll be making the same changes to our Office 365 services. So be mindful that if you are unable to locate Office 365 Secure in Cloud Market, it will have changed to Microsoft 365 Secure.

*For more details about the name changes read our guide.

Don’t forget about the other free solutions we have to help your customers through their current challenges.

As you continue to work hard to get the UK working remotely, we want to help you as much as we can. With this in mind, our team and our vendors have developed a number of opportunities to help you provide services and solutions to your customers.
