Who should consider adopting Microsoft 365 Business?

Microsoft 365 Business was built for small and medium-sized customers that have little to no IT resources on staff and want best-in-class productivity and collaboration capabilities of Office 365 together with device management and security solutions that safeguard business data. The Microsoft 365 Business customer is ready to move their IT operations to the cloud and is interested in maintaining a proactive stance to help protect data on both company and employee-owned devices.

How can I get Microsoft 365 Business for my business?

Microsoft 365 Business may be purchased through a Microsoft Partner or directly from Microsoft. In choosing whether to purchase directly from Microsoft or via a Microsoft Partner, you should consider your on-staff capability and desire to maintain an IT infrastructure. A Microsoft Partner can help you deploy and manage your IT infrastructure including Microsoft solutions.

How much does Microsoft 365 Business cost?

Microsoft 365 Business is offered at USD$20.00 user/month based on an annual contract if purchased directly from Microsoft. When purchased through a Microsoft Partner, pricing can vary based on the services the partner provides and their pricing model for Microsoft 365 Business.

Is there a cap to how many Microsoft 365 Business seats a customer can have?

Microsoft 365 Business was designed for small to medium sized businesses with low to medium IT complexity requirements. Customers may purchase up to 300 Microsoft 365 Business licenses for their organization. Customers can mix and match cloud subscriptions; as a result, depending on their organization’s IT requirements, customers may add Microsoft 365 Enterprise licenses to the same account.

When considering an environment consisting of multiple subscription types, customers should work with their trusted IT advisors to determine how best to manage and secure the various subscriptions as Microsoft 365 Business and Microsoft 365 Enterprise use different capabilities to secure and manage applications and data.

Can I combine Microsoft 365 Business with other Microsoft subscription offerings?

Yes, customers can combine their Microsoft 365 Business subscriptions with plans and add-ons from Azure, Dynamics 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, and Office 365.

Is everyone in my business required to have a Microsoft 365 Business subscription?

No, not everyone needs a Microsoft 365 Business subscription, although the security and management benefits are available only to those users with devices managed with a Microsoft 365 Business subscription.

Standardizing an IT environment serves to help reduce maintenance and security costs over time and is a state that businesses should strive to attain. However, we recognize that some small and medium size customers update their software primarily when they upgrade their hardware, over an extended period. Businesses can deploy Microsoft 365 Business to part of their organization, but for best protection of sensitive business data and consistent collaboration experiences, deployment to all users is recommended.

How can I know if the hardware and software I run today is compatible with Microsoft 365 Business?

If the hardware you run today runs Windows 7 Pro or later, it likely meets the minimum requirements for Microsoft 365 Business. Certain Windows 10 features such as Cortana, Windows Hello, and multitouch require specific hardware that is only available on newer PCs. See the Windows 10 Pro system requirements for additional details.

Existing desktop (Win32) application compatibility is strong in Windows 10, with most existing applications working without any changes. Customers and their trusted IT advisors should read the recommended application testing process for Windows 10 compatibility and review the Office system requirements to ensure a smooth transition to Microsoft 365 Business.

What is Windows 10 Business?

Windows 10 Business is a set of cloud-services and device management capabilities that complement Windows 10 Pro and enable the centralized management and security controls of Microsoft 365 Business. Windows 10 Business also comes with Windows AutoPilot, a service that streamlines the deployment of new Windows 10 PCs. If you have devices that are licensed for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Professional, Microsoft 365 Business provides an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro which is the prerequisite for deploying Windows 10 Business.

How does Microsoft 365 Business help support our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy?

Many employees prefer to use their own mobile phones or tablets to access personal and work information rather than carrying multiple devices for each purpose. The use of personal devices for work, while commonplace, increases the risk that business information could end up in the wrong hands. Many competing mobile data protection solutions require users to switch to a specific mode on their device or use another complex mechanism that users may find intrusive and therefore avoid using.

Microsoft 365 Business offers customers a simple but powerful means of enabling employees to use their personal devices for work while providing the business with the ability to prevent those devices from accessing, retaining, and/or sharing business information. More specifically:

App Protection for Office mobile apps helps protect Office data, including email, calendar, contacts, and documents on iOS and Android mobile devices, by enforcing policies such as automatically deleting business data after a prescribed amount of time of not connecting to the service, requiring that information is stored only to OneDrive for Business, requiring a PIN/fingerprint verification to access Office apps, and preventing company data from being copied from an Office app into personal apps. Mobile application management for other mobile apps through Intune is also available for Microsoft 365 Business subscribers.

Device Management for Windows 10 PCs allows businesses to choose to set and enforce capabilities such as Windows Defender protection for malware, automatic updates, and turning off screens after a prescribed amount of time. In addition, lost or stolen Windows 10 devices can be completely wiped of business applications and data through the Admin center.

Device Management for iOS, Android & MacOS features helps businesses securely manage a diverse device ecosystem that includes iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices.

How does Microsoft 365 Business help protect PCs in my organization from malicious attacks?

PCs managed with Microsoft 365 Business are protected with Windows Defender, which is the No. 1 antivirus feature on Windows 10, protecting more computers against viruses, malware, spyware, and other threats than any other solution. With Microsoft 365 Business, businesses can ensure Windows Defender protection is running and always up to date on all their Windows 10 devices.

Windows 10 Business also includes Windows Defender Exploit Guard, a new set of intrusion prevention capabilities. One of its features, Controlled folder access, stops ransomware in its tracks by locking down folders and preventing unauthorized apps from accessing a user’s important files.

What's the difference between Office 365 Business Premium, Microsoft 365 Business and Microsoft 365 Enterprise?

Microsoft has a variety of productivity and security management offerings that small to medium-sized customers may consider when upgrading their desktop and device infrastructure, each bringing increasingly powerful features and functionality.

Office 365 Business Premium delivers best-in-class productivity with Office 365 apps and services but does not include the application protection and device management capabilities of Microsoft 365 Business. Microsoft 365 Business combines Office 365 apps and services with mobile application management and Windows 10 Pro to enable remote management and help protect devices against viruses and malware. It includes a simplified management console through which device and data policies may be administered. Many small to medium-sized businesses can be best served with Microsoft 365 Business. Microsoft 365 Enterprise is a set of licensing plans that offer increased levels of Compliance and security management over Microsoft 365 Business and are designed for enterprise customers and those customers that have over 300 users. In addition, Microsoft 365 Enterprise plans provide additional functionality including business intelligence and analytics tools.

Can I switch my Office 365 plan to Microsoft 365 Business?

Yes, customers may switch their plans from a qualifying Office 365 plan to Microsoft 365 Business. Depending on the customer’s current plan there may be a decrease or increase in monthly charges.

In what regions is Microsoft 365 Business available?

The Microsoft 365 Business will be available to all partners and customers where Office 365 is available. See the list of Office 365 international availability for languages, countries and regions.

Is there a Microsoft 365 Business trial I may use to evaluate the offer?

A Microsoft 365 Business trial is available for CSPs. A trial for direct customers will be available later.

What should customers and partners know before running Microsoft 365 Business within their organization?

Customers that wish to experience the complete capabilities of Microsoft 365 Business must be running Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 Pro2 on their existing desktops. Existing Windows 10 Pro PCs should be running Creators Update if they have not already done so.


DEPLOYMENT

What should customers consider when planning a Microsoft 365 Business deployment?

The most direct path to a successful Microsoft 365 Business deployment is to engage with a Microsoft Partner. They have extensive training and experience with a wide variety of customer scenarios and are best equipped to understand your environment and needs. Customers that have experienced IT on staff can use the Microsoft 365 Business Getting Started to assist them in their Microsoft 365 Business deployment.

Does Microsoft 365 Business include the full capabilities of Microsoft Intune?

Yes, Microsoft 365 Business subscribers are licensed to use full Intune capabilities for iOS, Android, MacOS, and other cross-platform device management. Features not available in the simplified management console in Microsoft 365 Business, like 3rd party app management and configuration of WiFi profiles, VPN certificates, etc, can be managed in full Intune console. You have rights to use Configuration Manager to manage clients covered by the EMS license. For SCCM related queries, please see SCCM faqs

Does Azure Active Directory Premium P1 come with Microsoft 365 Business?

Microsoft 365 Business is built on technology from across Microsoft and while it shares some features with Azure Active Directory, it is not a full version. The security and management policies created in Microsoft 365 Business rely on some Azure functionality but does not include all features (e.g. self-service features, conditional access features, and reporting). Customers may choose to purchase Azure Active Directory Premium P1 or P2 as an add-on to Microsoft 365 Business. Please see the Microsoft 365 Business Service Description for more information

Does Microsoft 365 Business allow customers to manage Macs?

Intune helps you securely manage iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices.

What is Windows AutoPilot?

Windows AutoPilot is a service that streamlines the deployment of new Windows 10 PCs. This process can be done when the end-user logs on to Microsoft 365 Business for the first time—without IT ever touching the device—by leveraging centralized management controls of Microsoft 365 Business. You can also use Windows AutoPilot for existing PCs that are running Windows 10 Professional Creators Update (or later) and have been factory reset. Details about Windows AutoPilot can be found in this June, 2017 blog post


COMPATIBILITY

Can I add Office 365 add-ons to Microsoft 365 Business?

Can I add Phone System and Calling Plans to Microsoft 365 Business?

No, Phone System and Calling Plan are reserved for customers who have more advanced needs. Customers who require these capabilities should look at Microsoft 365 Enterprise offerings.

Can Microsoft 365 Business customers use Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection?

No, customers that require Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection need either Windows 10 Enterprise E5 or Microsoft 365 Enterprise E5.

Can customers create hosted Windows 10 VMs with a Microsoft 365 Business subscription?

No, customers that require virtualization should purchase Windows 10 Enterprise or a Microsoft 365 Enterprise subscription.
