ModernWorkplace

What is ModernWorkplace | Business?


ModernWorkplace | Business is a complete, intelligent solution, including Microsoft 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security, that empowers everyone to be creative and work together, securely. Suitable for growing businesses with complexity dedicated to move their business to the cloud.

ModernWorkplace | Business:

  • Empowers employees to get work done from anywhere, on any device.
  • Protects company data across devices with always-on security.

  • 24x7 Microsoft 365 Security as a Service

Microsoft Endpoint Manager helps deliver the modern workplace and modern management to keep your data secure, in the cloud and on-premises. Endpoint Manager includes the services and tools you use to manage and monitor mobile devices, desktop computers, virtual machines, embedded devices, and servers. Endpoint Manager combines services you may know and already be using, including Microsoft Intune, Desktop Analytics, co-management, and Windows Autopilot. These services are part of the Microsoft 365 stack to help secure access, protect data, and respond and manage risk.

  • Microsoft Intune is a 100% cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) provider for your apps and devices. It lets you control features and settings on Android, Android Enterprise, iOS/iPadOS, macOS, and Windows 10 devices. It integrates with other services, including Azure Active Directory (AD), mobile threat defenders, ADMX templates, Win32 and custom LOB apps, and more.
  • Desktop Analytics is a cloud-based service that provides insight and intelligence for you to make more informed decisions about the update readiness of your Windows clients. The service combines data from your organisation with data aggregated from millions of devices connected to the Microsoft cloud. It provides information on security updates, apps, and devices in your organisation, and identifies compatibility issues with apps and drivers. Create a pilot for devices most likely to provide the best insights for assets across your organisation.
  • Windows Autopilot sets up and pre-configures new devices, getting them ready for use. It's designed to simplify the lifecycle of Windows devices, for both IT and end users, from initial deployment through end of life. As part of Endpoint Manager, use Autopilot to preconfigure devices, and automatically enroll devices in Intune.

Advanced Threat Protection

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) safeguards your organisation against malicious threats posed by email messages, links (URLs), and collaboration tools.

  • ATP Safe Attachments: Provides zero-day protection to safeguard your messaging system, by checking email attachments for malicious content. It routes all messages and attachments that do not have a virus/malware signature to a special environment, and then uses machine learning and analysis techniques to detect malicious intent. If no suspicious activity is found, the message is forwarded to the mailbox.
  • ATP Safe Links: Provides time-of-click verification of URLs, for example, in emails messages and Office files. Protection is ongoing and applies across your messaging and Office environment. Links are scanned for each click: safe links remain accessible and malicious links are dynamically blocked.
  • ATP for SharePoint, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams: Protects your organisation when users collaborate and share files, by identifying and blocking malicious files in team sites and document libraries.
  • ATP anti-phishing protection: Detects attempts to impersonate your users and internal or custom domains. It applies machine learning models and advanced impersonation-detection algorithms to avert phishing attacks.

Cloud App Security

  • Discover and control the use of Shadow IT: Identify the cloud apps, IaaS, and PaaS services used by your organization. Investigate usage patterns, assess the risk levels and business readiness of more than 16,000 SaaS apps against more than 80 risks. Start managing them to ensure security and compliance.
  • Protect your sensitive information anywhere in the cloud: Understand, classify, and protect the exposure of sensitive information at rest. Leverage out-of-the box policies and automated processes to apply controls in real-time across all your cloud apps.
  • Protect against cyberthreats and anomalies: Detect unusual behaviour across cloud apps to identify ransomware, compromised users or rogue applications, analyse high-risk usage and remediate automatically to limit the risk to your organization.
  • Assess the compliance of your cloud apps: Assess if your cloud apps meet relevant compliance requirements including regulatory compliance and industry standards. Prevent data leaks to non-compliant apps, and limit access to regulated data.

Who should consider adopting ModernWorkplace?


ModernWorkplace | Business is designed for small- to medium-sized businesses with up to 300 users and includes device management with tailored security and management features from Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security and latest productivity tools. It offers services to empower employees, safeguard the business and simplify IT management. ModernWorkplace | Enterprise is a complete, intelligent solution, including Microsoft 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security, that empowers everyone to be creative and work together, securely. Suitable for growing businesses with complexity dedicated to move their business to the cloud.




How can I get ModernWorkplace for my business?


ModernWorkplace can be purchased through our partners or directly from Becloudsmart. In choosing whether to purchase directly from Becloudsmart or via a Becloudsmart Partner, you should consider your on-staff capability and desire to maintain an IT infrastructure. A Becloudsmart Partner can help you deploy and manage your IT infrastructure, including other Microsoft solutions.




How much does ModernWorkplace cost?


ModernWorkplace is offered at AU $49 user/month for Firstline worker, AU $149 user/month for Business and AU $199 user/month for Enterprise based on an annual contract if purchased directly from Becloudsmart.




Is there a cap to how many ModernWorkplace seats a customer can have?


Yes, customers can combine their ModernWorkplace subscriptions with plans and add-ons from Azure, Dynamics 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, and Power Platform. You can also combine various ModernWorkplace plans.




Is everyone in my business required to have a ModernWorkplace subscription?


No, not everyone needs a ModernWorkplace subscription, although the security and management benefits are available only to those users with devices managed with a ModernWorkplace | Business or ModernWorkplace | Enterprise subscription. Standardising an IT environment helps reduce maintenance and security costs over time and is a state that businesses should strive to attain. However, we recognise that some small and medium-sized customers update their software primarily when they upgrade their hardware, over an extended period. Businesses can deploy Premium to part of their organisation, but for best protection of sensitive business data and consistent collaboration experiences, deployment to all users is recommended.




How can I know if the hardware and software I run today is compatible with ModernWorkplace?


If the hardware you run today runs Windows 7 Pro or later, it likely meets the minimum requirements for ModernWorkplace. Certain Windows 10 features such as Cortana, Windows Hello, and multitouch require specific hardware that is only available on newer PCs. See the Windows 10 Pro system requirements for details. Existing desktop (Win32) application compatibility is strong in Windows 10, with most existing applications working without any changes. Customers and their trusted advisors should read the recommended application testing process for Windows 10 compatibility and review the Office system requirements to ensure a smooth transition to ModernWorkplace.




What is Windows 10 Business?


Windows 10 Business is a set of cloud services and device management capabilities that complement Windows 10 Pro and enable the centralised management and security controls of ModernWorkplace. Windows 10 Business also comes with certain premium Microsoft Defender features like Controlled Folder Access and Network Protection for web-based threats. It also includes Windows AutoPilot, a service that streamlines the deployment of new Windows 10 PCs. If you have devices that are licensed for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 Professional, Microsoft 365 Business Premium provides an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, which is the prerequisite for deploying Windows 10 Business. Important You need to supply the original product key when you upgrade, otherwise the upgrade won't work.




How does ModernWorkplace help support our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy?


Many employees prefer to use their own mobile phones or tablets to access personal and work information rather than carrying multiple devices for each purpose. The use of personal devices for work, while commonplace, increases the risk that business information could end up in the wrong hands. Many competing mobile data protection solutions require users to switch to a specific mode on their device or use another complex mechanism that users may find intrusive and therefore avoid using. ModernWorkplace offers customers a simple but powerful means of enabling employees to use their personal devices for work while providing the business with the ability to prevent those devices from accessing, retaining, and/or sharing business information. More specifically:

  • App Protection for Office mobile apps helps protect Office data, including email, calendar, contacts, and documents on iOS and Android mobile devices, by enforcing policies such as automatically deleting business data after a prescribed amount of time of not connecting to the service, requiring that information is stored only in OneDrive for Business, requiring a PIN/fingerprint verification to access Office apps, and preventing company data from being copied from an Office app into personal apps. Mobile application management for other mobile apps through Intune is also available for Microsoft 365 Business Premium subscribers.
  • Device Management for Windows 10 PCs allows businesses to choose to set and enforce capabilities such as Microsoft Defender Antivirus protection for malware, automatic updates, and turning off screens after a prescribed amount of time. In addition, lost or stolen Windows 10 devices can be completely wiped of business applications and data through the admin center.
  • Device Management for iOS, Android & macOS features helps businesses securely manage a diverse device ecosystem that includes iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices.




How does ModernWorkplace help protect PCs in my organisation from malicious attacks?


PCs managed with ModernWorkplace | Business or ModernWorkplace | Enterprise are protected with Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which is the No. 1 antivirus feature on Windows 10, protecting more computers against viruses, malware, spyware, and other threats than any other solution. With Microsoft 365 Business Premium, organizations can ensure that Microsoft Defender Antivirus protection is running and always up to date on all their Windows 10 devices. Windows 10 Business also includes Microsoft Defender Exploit Guard, a new set of intrusion prevention capabilities. One of its features, controlled folder access, stops ransomware by locking down folders and preventing unauthorized apps from accessing a user's important files.




Can I switch my Office 365 plan to ModernWorkplace?


Yes, customers may switch their plans from a qualifying Office 365 plan to ModernWorkplace. Depending on the customer's current plan, there may be a decrease or increase in monthly charges.
