Elevate your security

with Microsoft Defender

Unfortunately, no business is exempt from being a cyber threat target., and with 90% of global businesses considered to be SMBs, cybercriminals are moving their attention away from enterprise businesses and focusing more and more on small to medium businesses instead due to the ease of attack. As such, it’s more important than ever that businesses invest in the right places to ensure that their systems are as secure as they can be. 


Businesses continue to use conventional protection methods against unconventional attacks – for example, a traditional antivirus software. And with a remote workforce, businesses are potentially more vulnerable than ever before. 


Luckily enough, Microsoft Defender for Business offers enterprise-grade endpoint security, perfect for those that want peace of mind that their devices and data are safe from such cybercriminals. And in a cost-effective and quick to set up manner.

    Enhance business security

    Defender for Business is both cost-effective and simple to set up. So, you need not worry about lengthy and costly solutions. 


    With its effective security, your IT systems are not only protected from direct threat entry (I.e., email phishing or malware), but the entire network is constantly being assessed for risks, as well as automated detection of user behaviours to identify trends that could present themselves as a threat. This helps businesses to stay on the front foot, making decisions informed by the analysis of every signal possible. 


    You can: 


    • Use automated AI to proactively protect against threats, as well as detect and respond to threats as they happen 
    • Access actionable insights 
    • Rest assured that your IT security is as comprehensively secure as possible  


    • Simplified client configuration – simple device configuration with security policy activation at the click of a button 
    • Threat and vulnerability dashboard – real-time vulnerability & misconfiguration management 
    • Next generation protection – an ahead-of-the-curve secure perimeter placed around your systems 
    • Endpoint detection and response – behavioural-based attack detection, with live response capabilities, protecting your data and applications in real-time 


    Additional capabilities 


    Businesses utilising Defender for Business can also take advantage of automated investigation and remediation, expert threat intelligence as a result of the AI analysis of trillions of signals, extended device protection against Windows, MacOS, iOs and Android, and malicious content guarding to protect against web threats as they appear. 

    How it works

    Through it’s always-on protection, Defender for Business can identify all of the vulnerabilities and weaknesses within your infrastructure. By doing this, it creates a focus, providing insights on unpatched software, and making recommendations for applications or features that are unused and could be turned off to remove the potential for unpermitted access. Similarly, it can do the same for device USB ports. 


    Through its automated response, if Defender for Business detects an attack, it can isolate or shut down parts of your infrastructure to prevent attackers from gaining access, notifying you off this so that you can take the action required. 

    How to access Defender for Business

    For as little as £2.30 per user, per month, businesses can add an additional layer of protection to their existing set-up, ensuring that wherever their teams are working from, that security is at the forefront of everything they do.
