Office 365 makes life easy. Better yet, your customers really do need it. But they also need IT security solutions that address every malware and compliance issue under the sun to avoid costly data and productivity loss, fines and lawsuits. Being able to offer your customers both makes you the one-stop shop for all of their productivity and IT security needs. Here are five solutions that can help you grow your margins when you pair them with Office 365.
- Email Security
Your customers are busy. They don’t have time to shop around for an email filtering service, and they really don’t have time to deal with a spam or malware problem. Being able to roll spam and virus protection into Outlook without any hardware, software updates or downtime will make the decision easy for them.
- Message Encryption and Secure e-Signatures
Email is like a post card: Unencrypted, it bounces from server to server, readable by anyone. For customers that need to send information that shouldn't be read by just anyone--especially for customers with industry and regulatory compliance to maintain--offering email encryption that plugs directly into their inbox is essential.
And if your customers have documents that need to be signed securely, adding an e-signature feature that makes signing electronic documents in a secure manner can be as simple as clicking “sign here” in their inbox.
- Web Protection
While it may not work with Office 365 directly, any entry point for malware on your customers’ networks puts them at risk for a data breach—especially if that malware could glean documents from SharePoint or OneDrive. Offering Web protection as a part of your secure enterprise suite will keep cybercriminals off of your customers’ networks, and out of the files on their drives.
- Email Archiving and eDiscovery
Your customers may be required by law or by industry regulations to maintain records of their email and data for a period of time. Offer them a solution that protects their intellectual property and keeps them regulatory-compliant with cloud-based archiving, eDiscover and compliance solutions. An easily accessible archive of messages and documents that can be searched, verified and audited will make remaining industry-compliant a breeze. And make sure that you can offer a variety of services that can be tailored to your customers’ needs.
For new Office 365 customers, don’t forget that migrating an entire company’s worth of inboxes can be costly and time-consuming. Make migration painless for your customers by offering cloud-based migration services that allow you to migrate bulk content, metadata and copy content for Office 365.
