How to reach the true potential of Teams


On demand webinar


If rolling out Microsoft Teams was done in a rush (with the primary goal of providing video conferencing services), it’s likely that you are risking a negative response from end users.

There’s a lot more to Teams than video conferencing, but if it’s being judged on this service alone (and perhaps in comparison to Zoom), or if Teams has become ‘just one more place in which to lose documents and conversations’, then don’t miss this webinar.

In this informal Q&A session we look at how you can get the best value for money from your Teams capability…

Save money on security with Office 365

Exit from Third-Party Security


On demand webinar


Where in the past it was good practice to get a best-of-breed security solution for areas such as email hygiene and mobile device management to run alongside Office 365, Microsoft arguably now matches and exceeds the protection you can achieve with point solutions.  

In this webinar you will:

  • Hear why Microsoft delivers a bigger and better proposition than ‘point solutions’
  • Learn how you can successfully transition from 3rd-party solutions
  • Discover the best strategy for exiting 3rd-party solutions such as Mimecast, including how to ‘rescue’ your journal (and where to put it)

We will also look at a cost comparison example and help you formulate your next steps should you want to ‘move on’.

Is Office 365 backup essential?


On demand webinar


Many think that the facilities in Office 365 negate the need for separate backup & restore capability.  It’s true, there’s some great protection mechanisms available like the recycle bin and litigation hold.  But, unlike when it comes to email hygiene, end point protection, etc, did you know Microsoft actually recommends you maintain a separate, third-party backup capability.  

In this webinar you will:

  • Hear other people’s experience of where they’ve benefitted from a dedicated backup & restore service
  • Learn how you can protect your company from ransomware by leveraging Azure WORM storage
  • See a demo of the leading Azure-based backup/restore service for Office 365 (and on-premises) workloads
