The way we work has changed. When we launched Office 2010, our aim was to help customers unlock their potential with best-in-class tools they could use to be more productive. Ten years later, the very definition of productivity has changed significantly. To succeed today, businesses must help employees work collaboratively, from anywhere—and on schedules that fall outside the traditional nine-to-five framework. Meanwhile, staying ahead of ever-more-sophisticated security threats has simply outpaced the capacity of human vigilance alone.
