Microsoft 365: Business Standard or Business Premium

The key differences between Business Standard or Business Premium

Microsoft 365 Business Standard and Microsoft 365 Business Premium are two different subscription plans offered by Microsoft that cater to the needs of businesses. While both plans include essential productivity tools such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, there are some key differences between the two.

One of the main differences between Microsoft 365 Business Standard and Microsoft 365 Business Premium is the inclusion of additional advanced security features in the Premium plan. This includes features such as Advanced Threat Protection, which helps protect against sophisticated cyber threats, and Information Protection, which allows businesses to control and secure their sensitive data.

Another difference is the inclusion of additional management and compliance features in the Premium plan. This includes features such as Data Loss Prevention, which helps prevent accidental sharing of sensitive information, and eDiscovery, which helps businesses manage and search through their data for legal and compliance purposes.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium also gives you access to Intune and other device controls.

In terms of pricing, Microsoft 365 Business Premium is priced higher than Microsoft 365 Business Standard due to the additional security and management features included in the plan. Businesses that require advanced security and compliance features may find the Premium plan to be worth the extra cost, while those who only need basic productivity tools may opt for the Standard plan instead.
