Securing Your Business with Microsoft: A Cost-Effective Approach to Cybersecurity

 2024/02/17   Microsoft Power Platform   207 visit(s)  2 min to read




With the increasing number of cyber threats, it’s essential to have robust security measures in place to protect your data and assets. Microsoft offers a range of advanced solutions that can help improve your security while also reducing costs.


As IT infrastructure has become more complex, security has become a top priority. With the rapid adoption of new technologies and the need to support hybrid work, IT has faced challenges in managing security risks. Employees may unknowingly create security loopholes by downloading apps to increase productivity. Consolidating apps onto a single platform can help mitigate these risks.

A strong foundation of security is essential for any business. Microsoft’s “Do More with Less” approach goes beyond productivity; it prioritizes safeguarding your workforce and valuable assets.

Businesses are under pressure to contain costs

Significantly more security decision makers have felt pressure to cut costs within the past 6 months.

#1 priority to reduce cost is improved threat protection.


Improve operational efficiency:

  • Keep your devices safe wherever they are, across platforms.
  • Improve visibility across identities and endpoints.
  • Protect against breaches with deeply integrated solutions that secure identities, devices apps and data.
  • Secure access across your multifaceted digital landscape and the connected world.

Close security loopholes Percentage of global IT decision makers who believe employees increase security breach risk by:

85%  Letting others use their work devices

88%  Downloading software to do their jobs that is not approved by IT

88%  Using personal devices for work⁷


Security is top of mind as IT infrastructure has become more complex. Businesses have quickly rolled out new technologies, and IT has tried to accommodate hybrid workers, both remote and in-office, often on multiple devices. When employees download apps to make themselves more productive, their intentions are good—but often the outcome is not. Consolidating apps onto a single platform can help close these security loopholes.

How Microsoft 365 can help:

Microsoft 365 provides a holistic approach to security, helping you protect identities, data, applications, and devices across on-premises, cloud, and mobile environments.

1- Identity and access management: Securing identities as part of a Zero Trust strategy.

2- Threat protection: Helping to stop threatening attacks with integrated and automated security.

3- Information protection: Locating and classifying information anywhere it lives.

4- Security management: Strengthening security posture with insights and guidance


Security teams are constantly engaged in a battle with vulnerabilities. Companies face various challenges in effectively managing vulnerabilities, such as insufficient IT resources and complexity, resulting in long patching periods. Criminals exploit vulnerabilities quickly, which can lead to data breaches, regulatory fines, and reputational damage.


Organizations can experience significant savings by integrating product categories from multiple vendors with Microsoft Security solutions.
