The security features in the 2019 version mirror those in the 2016 suite, Microsoft says. As cloud software could be perceived as less secure than standard desktop apps, the business-focused trial of Office 2019 seems like a smart move.

IT departments should also have an easier time deploying and managing Office 2019 for Mac than with previous versions of the suite.

The features introduced in 2019 version are quite similar to those introduced in 2016 office suite.

As cloud software is assumed as less secure as compared to standard desktop apps, the company did well by introducing the business-focused trial of Office 2019.

It should be easy for IT departments for deploying and managing for Mac as compared to the previous version of Office suite.

It is reported that Microsoft is going to introduce Office 2019 later this year. For now, if you want to see the Mac preview or window preview, then you need to visit Microsoft’s support forum.
