Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), Avast Business Antivirus
It is well suited in manufacturing where the users are not mobile. However, in the situation where users are mobile like in sales etc, there it is less appropriate.
Office365 with ZScalar is comparatively slow, the email uploading & downloading takes time.
