The difference between Microsoft 365 Enterprise licenses
Whether you’re thinking of investing in Microsoft 365 for the first time, or you’re scaling up due to outgrowing the Business license, an Enterprise license is always going to be the best option for modern businesses.
Typically, organizations make a move from Business to an Enterprise license for greater security and compliance as they grow. But before you take the plunge with E5, consider the other options:

E3 license
The Microsoft E3 license is the Enterprise benchmark, providing your organization with:
An Office desktop client
More Mailbox and OneDrive storage
Azure information protection (AIP) – allowing you to classify protected documents and emails
Data loss prevention (DLP) features
eDiscovery – a tool that aids data compliance across your network.
This license works perfectly for many organizations. However, if your company faces advanced cyber-security threats, or handles large amounts of sensitive data, you will likely need the enhanced power of the Microsoft e5 licence.

E5 license
The jewel in the crown of Enterprise licensing is the E5 license. It features the most advanced security features Microsoft offers, such as:
Everything covered in the E3 license
A more advanced version of eDiscovery
Office 365 cloud app security
Advanced threat protection
Customer lockbox
Customer key for 365
Threat intelligence tools
The above features should give you more of an idea of why you need 365 e5. However, without it, you’ll also be missing out on benefits from one of the most secure and compliance-driven productivity platforms available. And if none of the above sounds familiar, keep reading—we will explore what these features do, and why you should care

One other notable difference between E3 and E5 is cloud PBX, which will enable you to use Teams as a corporate phone system. This is currently available in the E5 license.
