Is it the best solution for your business though? We like to think of Office 365 Business Premium as a starting point that puts you on a path to Microsoft 365 Business which will help you address more advanced security and compliance requirements.
Microsoft 365 Business includes everything that Office 365 Business Premium offers while adding Advanced Security and Device Management features to protect your company data across personal and company-owned devices.

Device Management is another feature that is not available on Office 365 Business Premium. Microsoft 365 Business includes an upgrade to Windows 10 Business from Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
