Office 365 Resources
Microsoft Office 365 provides state employees access to email and collaboration features anywhere, anytime on any device. O365 is a cloud-based platform that meets security compliance regulations and our technology standards.
The O365 Suite includes: Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Teams, and Yammer.
O365 allows you to securely access your email, OneDrive and many other features without the need for a VPN connection.
If the majority of your work can be done by email, we recommend using O365 as opposed to VPN connection or VDI in order to conserve the state’s network.
Use of O365 is authorized on your personal devices (i.e. home computers, laptops and cell phones) if two-factor authentication is active on your account.
Current state employees can download and use O365 suite on up to five (5) devices with your O365 subscription. For more benefits view the O365 Unlocked Features document.
