Microsoft 365 is a complete unified solution deployed on the cloud offered under single license that includes Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. Microsoft 365 provides operating system functionality as well as productivity apps for your users, as well as a new online management platform and deployment tools for IT administrators and IT support professionals to use.
Microsoft 365 includes Office 365 ProPlus, which comes with Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. These apps can be accessed via the cloud or installed locally on multiple platforms including Windows 10, iOS and Android (up to five different device installations per user). In addition to the popular Office apps, you also get access to Microsoft Teams, Power BI, Microsoft Flow, and PowerApps.
Microsoft 365 comes in four options: Enterprise, Business, Academic, and Government.
Windows 10 Enterprise licenses are included with a Microsoft 365 Enterprise subscription. Windows 10 is a modern, cloud-enabled operating system that supports features such as biometric sign-in, touch, and universal applications. It also supports modern management and device deployment with Windows Autopilot.
Windows Autopilot is a deployment method which reduces the amount of time needed to provision devices for your users. Administrators can quickly pre-configure settings so that devices can be shipped directly to users. Once these devices are attached to your Microsoft 365 tenant, they can be auto-configured and managed from the mobile device management (MDM) solution.
Microsoft 365 (M365) includes Microsoft Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS) which is a suite of products that includes Azure Active Directory (which offers cloud-based identity and access services), Azure Information Protection (which offers document labelling, classification, protection, and security), Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics (which provides real-time monitoring and protection against malware threats), and Microsoft Device Management (which use Intune to offer a mobile device and app management solution).
