As you know, thousands of organisations in the UK and overseas have been caught out by a ransomware attack called WannaCry, also known as WanaCrypt0r 2.0 and WCry. The malicious software locks data and then demands payment of up to $300 (£230) in Bitcoin, a demand which doubles in 3 days, before it will restore locked files. Some security experts warn that there is no guarantee that full access to locked files will be granted even after a payment has been made.
Can I switch to other Office 365 plans?
Yes, if you need to upgrade you can transition your account to a different plan, such as moving from Office 365 Business to Office 365 Enterprise.
Can I mix and match different Office 365 plans?
Yes, as long as the license usage limitations are not exceeded; for example you can’t have more than 300 users on Business Essentials or Business Premium.
