TechTip: Secure Your Microsoft Products With Office Protect

Does your business use Microsoft products like Office or Microsoft 365 email? If so, your business is at even more risk of getting hacked.

Because Microsoft’s tools are so popular, they’re a big target for hackers. 70% of cyber attacks target Microsoft Office products.

On top of that, 43% of all cyber attacks target small to medium-sized businesses. So if you want to protect your business, you need to make sure your Microsoft products are secure.

Microsoft has security features built in, but they aren’t enough to protect against every threat out there, or against your own employees clicking on things they shouldn’t.

We’ve found the best way to protect our clients is Microsoft 365 with Office Protect. Office Protect is a security add-on that allows us to monitor the back end of Microsoft 365 for any unusual activity. It alerts us to potential threats–whether it’s hackers or human error–so we can check it out right away.

One of our clients was recently hacked, but due to Office Protect, we were able to identify the threat and fix it before any damage was done.

If you use Microsoft products, we can help keep your business safe too. Talk to us about upgrading to Microsoft 365 with Office Protect today.
