Difference between Office 365 and Microsoft 365
Microsoft offers two products: Office 365 and Microsoft 365. Although the names are similar, these are different products.
|Office 365 is a cloud-based suite of business and productivity apps, including Microsoft Office Suite, and apps like Skype for Business, SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, Yammer, and Planner, depending on your subscription.||Microsoft 365 includes Office 365 along with Windows 10 Enterprise, Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), and Machine Learning.|
|Office 365 is part of Microsoft 365. So, you get relatively limited number of apps.||Microsoft 365 offers a comprehensive range of apps.|
|Office 365 is specially designed for small and medium businesses.||Microsoft 365 business and enterprise versions are for relatively larger businesses.|
Difference between Previous Versions of Office and Office 365
The desktop version of Office Suite has been around for almost two decades. Office 365, however, offers better features than the premise-based Office editions.
|Old Office Versions||Office 365|
|Previous versions of Office are on-premise services that require a one-time purchase.||Office 365 is a subscription-based service that requires monthly or yearly renewal.|
|You have to pay higher upfront costs.||You can pay a low monthly subscription fee.|
|You have to buy updated versions again with a one-time payment.||With Office 365, you get the latest version of all apps through automated updates at no extra cost.|
|These versions are premise-based. Hence, they are accessible only from one device. No remote accessibility.||Office 365 is cloud-based, offering remote accessibility from multiple devices.|
|They offer a limited number of features restricted to offline use.||Office 365 offers a vast range of features available both online and offline.|
Difference between Office 365 for Business and G Suite
G Suite by Google is one of the major rivals of Office 365 for Business. But, Office 365 is a better choice than G Suite for the following reasons:
|Office 365 for Business||G Suite|
|Whether you are creating a CV or brochure, the Microsoft Office suite included in Office 365 offers templates for every type of document. It also offers better document customization features compared to G Suite.||G Suite lacks the diversity of templates offered by Office 365.|
|Microsoft Office apps can work online and offline seamlessly.||Although Google Docs are available offline, the setup is fiddly and has to be done in advance.|
|From Access to PowerApps, you get a wide range of apps with Office 365.||G Suite offers a relatively small number of applications.|
|You can edit almost any type of document, including PDF with Microsoft Office Suite.||Google Docs doesn’t allow you to edit PDFs.|
⇒ It is clear that with a single subscription, you can enjoy plenty of cloud-based features. Let’s take a closer look at a few distinctive benefits of using Office 365 for Business.

However, this is not an exhaustive list. With practice, you can use several unique functions in each tool and service included in Office 365.
2. Securing Accounts and Content
Apart from leveraging various Microsoft Office 365 features, you also need to pay attention to security. While the built-in security features of Office 365 will be up and running as soon as you create and log into your account, you will need to take the following active precautions:
↪ Check Your Secure Score
The Office 365 Secure Score evaluates and rates your current IT security configurations. It will also offer account and content security recommendations as per your evaluation.
↪ Practice Role-Based Access Control
Make sure to review the role of each employee and provide access accordingly. Creating a role-based access environment helps protect your data and minimizes risks in the event of a security breach.
↪ Manage All Accessible Devices
All your remotely accessible devices such as mobiles and tablets should be secured with a PIN or two-factor authentication login. You can also use Microsoft InTune to determine which apps on a mobile device can access your business data. On the other hand, ActiveSync is useful in wiping data from a stolen device.
↪ Use Multi-Factor Authentication
Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a must to protect your business data from unwarranted access. In Office 365 for Business, you can add two-step verification to virtually all accounts. You can turn on MFA in the Sign-in and Security section of your Admin Dashboard.
↪ Create Dedicated Admin Accounts
You should stop logging into your email through your global admin account. Remember, users with privileged access are always a target for hackers and cybercriminals.
So, you must have a dedicated administrator account, which should be used only for admin tasks. This account should also have MFA. Also, be sure to log out of all browsing sessions, apps, and non-admin accounts before logging into the admin account.
↪ Use Customer Lockbox
Customer Lockbox will allow you to control the level of access to Microsoft engineers. You can approve or reject an access request by Microsoft engineers to fix any issues in your network.
↪ Use ATP Safe Attachment and Links
Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection provides ATP Safe Attachments and Office 365 ATP Safe Links features. The ATP Safe Attachments protection is not turned on by default. You can turn it on in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center. IT will protect your users from opening malicious attachments.
Similarly, the ATP Safe Links feature will protect you against phishing attacks. You should change the default settings to increase protection. You can do it in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.
↪ Use Email Message Encryption
With this security feature, you can send and receive encrypted email messages in and outside your company. It is compatible with Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail, and other email services.
↪ Use Mailbox Audit Logging
It helps you keep track of who is logging into mailboxes and sending emails, among other tasks. This feature is not enabled by default in Office 365. You can use Exchange Online PowerShell to enable audit logging for all your users.
↪ Train Your Users/Employees
The final tip is to train your employees and/or users to use cyber security best practices and maintain a strong culture of security awareness. You should educate your employees about using strong passwords, the importance of frequent password changes, safe data handling, and MFA.
The short answer is, it depends. You have to consider various factors, including the number of users, business requirements, security needs, and your budget.
The three plans under Office 365 are suitable for small businesses and firms. Microsoft 365, however, is ideal for large enterprises. Microsoft also offers plans specially designed for non-profits and educational organizations.
Yes. If you are using desktop versions of Office, you should be able to use them with Office 365. However, it is most compatible with Office 2016 and later versions (Office 2019). If you are using Mac, it can work with Office 2013 and Office 2011. Office 2010 and Office 2007, however, will work with decreased functionality.
Office 365 comes with several built-in security features like email encryption, ATP safe links and attachments, MFA, customer lockbox, and data security, among others. Microsoft can't access your data stored in the cloud without your permission. However, you need to ensure security best practices as well.

If you are looking for a business version of Office 365, you can get a one-month free trial. But, you need to share your credit card details. You can look for better deals. Buying a paid version, however, is well worth the cost usually.
You can create a Microsoft Account to get access to Office on the Web via Office Online. You will able to use free apps available for your use without paying a dime. However, except for the trial period, you will need to pay to use Office 365 for Business.
1. How to Develop an Office 365 Deployment Strategy
Implementing Office 365 for a small business requires a pre-planned strategy. While the roadmap will change depending on your business size, domain, and market, you should keep the following common factors in mind:
↪ Start With Your Business Goals
First, you need to see if and how switching to Office 365 applications will benefit your strategic business outcomes. For example, if real-time co-authoring can help increase your deliverables, you would probably want to focus on sharing and creating a collaborative workspace.
↪ Understand Your Core Issues
Next, you need to identify your core problems. Talk to your employees, from top to the lowest management level, to understand their technical and non-technical frustrations. It could be anything, ranging from wasted time to indecisiveness of handling conflicting priorities.
↪ Identify How Your Current Infrastructure Handles These Issues
Once you have identified the bottlenecks, find out if and how your current technology or infrastructure is helping you solve those issues.

At this stage, you can start thinking about where your current technology fails and whether Office 365 applications can help you. You should probably make a list of which Office 365 services can help and choose a plan accordingly.
↪ Plan for Transition and Further Training
After finalizing a suitable Office 365 plan, you will need to plan the transition. You will need to move your legacy data, processes, and systems to the appropriate Office 365 application, and train your employees. You can break down the process into smaller segments to avoid interrupting your daily business activities.
↪ Consult Office 365 Technology Partner
If your in-house IT team is small or lacks experience, it is best to consult a technology partner specializing in managed Office 365 services.
