Access from Anywhere

Office 365 is a cloud-based version of Microsoft office that can be used on any device with an internet connection. This means that no matter where you are in the world, you will be able to access your files from one place. It offers the same functionality of desktop versions of Microsoft Office, but it is only limited by your internet connection.

Microsoft Office 365 provides employees with an innovative way to be productive from anywhere and anytime. The data centres housing Microsoft 365 servers are equipped with state-of-the-art security infrastructure ensuring that employees can use it at ease without having to worry about cyber attacks or other vulnerabilities. In addition, Office 365 uses advanced security technologies such as encryption and multi-factor authentication to further protect user data.


Microsoft has put forth a large amount of information about its uptime and quality over the past few years. There are many useful resources available on their Trust Centre including details about how they comply with service level agreements, or guarantees to customers who purchase services from them.

Microsoft currently delivers an uptime rate of 99.98%. This means during a year, approximately 8,800 hours pass with less than 1.45 hours downtime throughout the entire year.
