Office 365 Security

By Superior Blogger | Published March 15, 2018

Many businesses of all sizes and industries have embraced Microsoft’s Office 365 in varying forms. Primarily, it is deployed as a collaboration tool with email and calendaring but also a unique way to rent all of those Office programs (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) without paying the larger up-front licensing fees. With this wide distribution, security is certainly a concern for both end users and the businesses that employ them.

Data Protection for Organizations
Office 365 data loss prevention helps keep sensitive information from straying into the wrong hands without hindering end-user productivity. Rights management capabilities are built directly into Office 365 and the Office apps let users securely share documents and send emails so only those with the right permissions can access the information.

Threat Protection for End Users
Office 365 is secured by design on all fronts. Exchange Server for email and calendaring blocks 100% of known malware and significantly reduces spam. Office 365 threat-protection capabilities help defend against risky attachments, malicious links, and new malware. Security-management and threat-intelligence capabilities alert end users to suspicious behavior like hacking, phishing, etc.

A Highly Protected Central Nervous System
Office 365 meets key international, regional, and industry-specific standards and terms, with more than 1,000 security and privacy controls that map to more than 25 key compliance certifications. To help businesses meet their own compliance obligations, Office 365 transparently shares third-party audit reports, technical documentation, and opportunities for direct engagement via their Financial Services Compliance Program.
