1. Licensing and Scalability
Creative Cloud for Teams: This plan is designed for SMBs i.e. small and medium-sized businesses. You pay for what you use - the licensing model is based on a per-user basis, making it easier for organizations to scale up as their creative teams grow.
Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams offers a flexibility that is especially advantageous for dynamic businesses that need to adapt to changing project requirements and team sizes.
Creative Cloud for Enterprise: This plan is designed for large organizations with more complex workflows. It offers flexible licensing options, including named user and device licenses, thus helping to accommodate unique organizational structures and requirements.
Adobe Creative Cloud for Enterprise also offers extensive administrative control and reporting tools, empowering IT administrators to manage software usage efficiently.

Creative Cloud for Teams: It facilitates collaboration among team members with its cloud-based sharing and file storage. Team members can also collaborate on projects in real time, making it easy to review and edit creative work together.
Users also gain access to resources like Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud libraries, simplifying asset research, sharing, and integration for creative teams. Adobe Spark, included with Creative Cloud for Teams, allows for the creation and sharing of visual stories and web pages, enhancing communication within the team.
Creative Cloud for Enterprise: This takes collaboration to the next level with features like Single Sign-On (SSO) and Active Directory integration, ensuring seamless integration with your existing IT infrastructure.
Creative Cloud for Enterprise also provides advanced asset management and organization capabilities through Adobe Experience Manager, allowing businesses to maintain strict access control over their digital assets. It also supports integration with third-party project management and collaboration tools.
3. Security and Compliance
Creative Cloud for Teams: Security features in Creative Cloud for Teams are geared towards meeting the basic needs of smaller businesses. The platform offers essential security measures, including user authentication and data encryption, to safeguard your creative assets. However, control over access and permissions is limited compared to the Enterprise plan.
The Teams version is more suited to organizations with an existing security infrastructure, organizations with less stringent compliance requirements, or those operating in industries with a lower regulatory burden
Creative Cloud for Enterprise: For organizations with high security demands and strict compliance requirements, Creative Cloud for Business offers advanced security measures, including identity management, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and data loss prevention (DLP), to ensure your creative assets and data are protected.
This plan also enables admins to define access control and permissions precisely. Detailed auditing and compliance reporting tools provide valuable insights to organizations, helping them comply with industry regulations.
Creative Cloud for Teams: This plan comes with standard customer support. Adobe's knowledge base provides a valuable resource for troubleshooting common issues and finding answers to frequently asked questions. Additionally, users have access to Adobe's learning resources and tutorials.
This is adequate for smaller teams with experienced users who require minimal assistance. However, for larger organizations that need extensive support or personalized training, the Enterprise version offers additional benefits
Creative Cloud for Enterprise: Each enterprise account has a dedicated account manager who provides personalized guidance and assistance. Issues are resolved promptly and effectively.
Furthermore, enterprises have priority support from Adobe's technical support team, reducing downtime and ensuring creative projects run smoothly. Customized training and onboarding options help organizations maximize the potential of the Creative Cloud suite.
