Microsoft Office 365: Which enterprise level is right for your business.-Image

Recently the way we work has changed from a more traditional office setting to remote work and hybrid working.

The covid-19 pandemic has made many businesses assess their technology and collaboration tools, which has naturally led many to question which Microsoft Office 365 license is right for them to do the job they need to do. 

Microsoft Office 365 comes in three varieties for Enterprise which are E1, E3 and E5. With these three license levels boasting different features it can be difficult to choose which license is right for you and your business.

To help you decide if you would like to purchase the ‘lightest’ version E1, E3 with Cloud Storage and Data Loss Prevention or go for all features including advanced security and analytics with E5, this helpful table will assist your decision-making process.
