Five reasons to choose Microsoft Cloud:

Costs and maintenance

With Microsoft Cloud, you don’t need to purchase expensive server equipment, maintain them and pay large electricity bills. Microsoft Cloud can help you reduce operational expenses as your staff doesn’t have to waste precious time troubleshooting problems. It allows you to be more flexible to devote more time to other critical business areas.

Security/threat protection

While some businesses may be hesitant to move to the cloud, cloud security has never been better. According to Gartner, public cloud service workloads will suffer at least 60% fewer security disturbances than those in traditional data centers.

Microsoft cloud offers comprehensive, multi-layered security that includes the following:

  • Access control systems
  • Data redundancy
  • Continual threat monitoring
  • Mass file deletion protection
  • Encryption for data in transit and at rest
  • Physical data center security
  • Application security
  • Continuous validation
  • Suspicious login and activity monitoring

Unlike on-premises storage, you’ll have a team of Microsoft global cybersecurity experts helping to safeguard your business data at all times.

Compliance

Many businesses in the healthcare and financial industries (and beyond) are subject to compliance with mandates such as HIPAA, GDPR or CCPA, etc. Unlike an on-premise solution, Microsoft Cloud has teams of experts who have more certifications than any other cloud provider in dozens of crucial industries, including health, government, finance, education, manufacturing and media.

Scalability

With Microsoft Cloud, there’s no need to rack and stack servers. Businesses can scale workloads based on specific metrics as needed in the cloud, in literally a few clicks, by using built-in features. This capability allows you to scale up, down, out and in—quickly! This flexibility dramatically cuts your overhead costs connected with monitoring and scaling resources manually.

Availability

Microsoft Cloud lets you and your team access apps from anywhere in the world at any time. That means companies can propose a flexible working schedule to their employees, making a smooth transition to remote/hybrid work. Moving to the cloud also allows easy file sharing, real-time collaboration with your team and better version control.
