“Safely stored in the cloud, compliant and protected by best-in-class security: your data, and the tools you use to harness it, can truly empower your business.”

The world is inherently more dangerous than it has ever been, and the cyber threats we face are becoming more sophisticated. Today, any device is a potential route into our systems and our lives, and must be protected to the highest level. With more of our personal information online and in digital form, not to mention the data you hold on your customers, ensuring your business is secure and compliant in the face of regulations, such as GDPR, has never been more important.

Whereas security used to be about protecting a network, the flexibility provided by the cloud and modern devices means more information travels outside of office locations, enhancing the way we work and boosting productivity. But these benefits mean nothing if our information isn’t secure. Security is, therefore, an essential step in the digital transformation process, protecting your business, your people and your customers, in line with modern standards and modern policies set at a government level.

In today’s business world, a data breach can bring significant harm to a business, whether it’s fines and reputational damage, or loss of sales, downtime and repair costs. This is why Microsoft takes a holistic approach to security, harnessing its platform, intelligence and global security partners to ensure its customers are equipped to protect, detect and respond to threats. Microsoft spends over a billion dollars on research and development each year in building security into its products and, by adding the vast intelligence it gathers, is able to gain insight and take action against threats, applying the latest security defences to its products and sharing this information with customers to ensure they’re aware and informed. Across Identity and access management, threat protection, information protection and security management, Microsoft is dedicated to protecting your business and its information, whether it’s in the cloud or on devices. With security baked in across its software and solutions and a proven track record for privacy and compliance, Microsoft provides the safest solutions for your business.
