What is Microsoft 365 Security and Productivity?

Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based subscription service that brings together a range of productivity and collaboration tools like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, as well as services like OneDrive, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft 365 Security and Productivity refers to the various features and capabilities designed to enhance security and productivity within the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.

Balancing security and productivity

The tradeoff between security and productivity used to be fraught with tension. Security teams focused on keeping data safe and isolating malicious links. Security measures could block capabilities and limit access to reduce risk. But for teams that are trying to get their work done, they may use workarounds or ignore policies altogether to achieve productivity.

That is no longer the case with Microsoft 365 security and productivity.

To help orgs stay secure and productive, users are empowered with seamless integration between Windows, Office 365 and Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection.

Trusted 365 Security Features

Identity and Access Management:

Features like Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) enable organizations to manage users and provide the appropriate level of access to various resources.

Threat Protection:

Microsoft 365 has built-in threat protection features like Microsoft Defender for Office 365, which helps protect email, files, and online storage against malware and phishing attacks.

Safe Documents

A premium feature to scan opened Office documents in Protected View for Office. Safe Documents automatically checks the document against known risks and threat profiles before allowing it to open. Users don’t need Defender for Endpoint installed on their local devices to get Safe Documents protection.

Microsoft 365 Safe Documents provides an additional layer of protection by verifying untrusted files on behalf of users.

Application Guard

A security feature that goes beyond protected view to safeguard your device from advanced cyber-attacks by opening untrusted websites and files in an isolated container that is separate from the host operating system. Application Guard helps protect your device from malware, viruses, and other kinds of cyber-attacks that can harm your device and data.

Information Protection:

Features like Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Azure Information Protection help in classifying and protecting sensitive data.

Compliance Management:

Tools like Compliance Manager and eDiscovery assist organizations in meeting regulatory requirements.

Zero Trust Security Model:

Microsoft 365 supports a zero-trust approach to security, focusing on verifying identity and device health before granting access.
