Ensuring that your business is protected against a cyberattack is a daunting task for any organization. Failing to protect your business, however, can result in tremendous losses and risk for your organization.

The average cost of a single small business data breach is approximately $120,000. Aside from the revenue loss, data breaches generate often insurmountable trust issues within the client base. Nonetheless, many small businesses still fail to invest in the cybersecurity systems necessary to protect their organizations.

One of the biggest roadblocks to investing in a proper cybersecurity strategy is that it has traditionally taken a lot of time and effort. Finding the hours and bandwidth to research and identify the right cybersecurity investments can be challenging. How do you know which cybersecurity system to invest in? What is right for your organization?

Creating an easier path to implementing crucial cybersecurity protections starts with capitalizing on technology. With the right tools in your tech stack, being protected against cyberattacks doesn’t have to be costly or time-consuming. A perfect example would be the advanced security tools offered by Microsoft.

Widely recognized as one of the largest security providers in the world, Microsoft currently invests more than $1 billion in security research and development each year, and users of its products get to reap the benefits of that investment. Using tools like Microsoft 365 Business (M365 Business) makes implementing effective cybersecurity protection far less expensive.

Users who are already familiar with Office 365 Business Premium will find it easy to capitalize on the advanced security technologies of M365 Business, which combine cybersecurity with streamlined management and maintenance capabilities specifically designed for small and midsize businesses. Exceeding the capabilities of its predecessor, Office 365, M365 Business is an integrated solution that combines the best-in-class productivity of Office 365 Business Premium with device management capabilities and advanced security features with enterprise-level protections.

M365 Business allows users to keep company data secure while boosting productivity, both within the office and while on the go. It enables users to share documents and communicate from any device with the same safeguards you’d expect from expensive, enterprise-level cybersecurity solutions.

Other major benefits of M365 Business include:

  • Threat Intelligence. Microsoft tools provide access to some of the best threat-related information available.
  • AI-Powered Insights. The Security Graph feature uses advanced data science to turn threat signals into security intelligence.
  • Comprehensive Cyberdefense. Insights from Microsoft’s cybersecurity experts provide valuable information that helps small businesses and law firms combat cyberattacks.
  • Enterprise-Grade Protection. M365 Business runs on the same technology that powers the world’s largest businesses.

With the cost of potential data breaches so high, investing in tools that do the heavy lifting of cybersecurity for you is a sound business move.
