According to Workplace 2020 study, 45% workers face key gaps at the workplace today, especially those at the firstline, while 68% workers check personal emails on company-issued devices – thus exposing their work devices to potential security risks.
The findings of the survey highlighted the need for robust software that enables the workforce to access data and information from anywhere in a secure manner. The lack of access to data at the crucial time delays the decision-making process and leads to unproductivity. Accessibility to data is not the only concern but safeguarding it from the potential risk is also essential. To address these challenges, Microsoft has introduced a new product Microsoft 365 which will empower organizations and increase employee productivity. Microsoft 365 is a complete, intelligent solution, which brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security.
