What Your Business Needs to Know About Bing Chat Enterprise

Tech Tips | Microsoft 365

Many people have different opinions when it comes to using artificial intelligence (AI) for their businesses. Some think it will revolutionize their operations. On the other hand, there are those who worry about the cost, privacy, or security of using the new tech. The bottom line is that a lot of organizations are missing out on the benefits of AI. In a time where innovation and technological advancements can significantly influence your success, that could mean your business is getting left behind. 

Thankfully, if you're still wary about using generative AI tools for your business, Microsoft has just made that decision simpler by releasing Bing Chat Enterprise for some Microsoft users. But what is it, who can use it, and what potential benefits can it offer your organization? 

Intelligent Technical Solutions (ITS) has been helping hundreds of businesses adopt new technology like AI, automation, and machine learning systems. In this article, we'll answer everything you need to know about Microsoft's new Bing Chat Enterprise and why you need to use it for your business.

Bing Chat Enterprise is a new AI-powered chat tool that Microsoft launched for businesses that want to use generative AI tools without compromising their data privacy and security.

4. Is Bing Chat secure?

The short answer is that it's more secure than alternative generative AI models. Bing Chat Enterprise protects user and business data by not saving or sharing chat data outside the organization. Microsoft has no eyes-on access to the chat data. Not to mention, your chat data is not used to train the underlying models. Users can chat with Bing Chat Enterprise with the confidence that their data is protected and will not leak outside the organization.
