Securely Communicate With Your Team While Working From Home!



Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration solution that includes useful business utilities and features, such as text and video chat, file storage, and integrations with other applications. 

As security is a top priority for any solution we vet and recommend to our clients, o
ne of the key things we like about Teams is its security. It supports over 90 regulatory standards and laws, including HIPAA, GDPR, FedRAMP, SOC, and more, and is continuously updated for persistent security efforts. 

If your organization is already using Office 365, chances are, you already have Teams as part of your subscription
