Microsoft 365 Security in the Cloud




Greater security at lower cost with the expertise and power of Microsoft 365 Security in the Cloud

Companies are increasingly concerned about security. It’s no surprise: the past year has seen a dramatic rise in remote work, which gives attackers more opportunities to damage data, networks, and identities. When you choose Microsoft 356 in the Cloud, you can start protecting your cloud and hybrid environments immediately, while setting the foundation for a solution that can be easily expanded.


Defend against cyber-threats

Protect data, apps, and infrastructure quickly with built-in security services in Azure that include unparalleled security intelligence to help identify rapidly evolving threats early—so you can respond quickly. Implement a layered, defence-in-depth strategy across identity, data, hosts, and networks. Unify security management and enable advanced threat protection across hybrid cloud environments.

Discover a single solution with advanced threat protection that identifies and blocks cybercriminals from accessing your company’s important business assets. Between 90-98% of all cyberattacks start with phishing. Today, attacks are so sophisticated that even experts are finding it difficult to detect them. It’s not enough to train your employees to look out for bad grammar or misspellings. Instead, what if you could accurately locate and prevent phishing attacks from happening altogether?

Whenever a new threat is detected anywhere in the world, Microsoft updates its network so that Microsoft 365 security is able to protect your company from both old and new forms of malware.

With Microsoft 365, you get protection from sophisticated external cyber-threats hidden in email attachments and links, as well as cutting-edge defence against phishing and spoofing attacks, ransomware, and other advanced malware attempts.

  • Find the threat in advance

Microsoft 365 Security uses ATP Safe Links and ATP Safe Attachments to scan and perform advanced analysis of any links or attachments sent over email. This protects you from hidden threats you may not be able to see.

  • Enable antiphishing policies

Our solution uses machine learning models and impersonation detection to quickly identify any suspicious activities on email. This helps you protect against any potential attacks.

  • Protect company devices

Enable multifactor authentication to make it harder for hackers to access company information. Microsoft 365 also offers Windows Defender to protect files on Windows 10 devices from ransomware.


Protect business data

Provide access to information for those who need it and keep out those who don’t.

What if you could offer your company a comprehensive product that combines their productivity apps with a security solution that prevents sensitive information like social security numbers or credit cards from leaking outside your business?

With Microsoft 365, you can keep personal and financial information safe by enabling email encryption at the click of a button, receiving alerts when sensitive information is about to be shared over email, and applying restrictions that block anyone who tries to copy, forward, or saves highly sensitive business data.

What’s more, you can reduce maintenance and management costs by replacing multiple third-party products with a single solution that lets you set up your own security policies.

  • Protect the accidental sharing of sensitive data

Microsoft 365 is built with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) that can identify any document or email containing a credit card or social security number. This feature monitor and protects sensitive information across Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Teams, as well as desktop versions of Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

  • Encrypt sensitive emails

Encrypt or transform content inside emails from plain text to an unreadable ciphertext that can only be decrypted by the intended recipient who is given a one-time passcode. What’s more, as an admin, you can set up transport rules that define the conditions for encryption. When a user sends a message that matches a rule, encryption is applied automatically.

  • Apply labels and restrictions to files

Microsoft 365 includes Azure Information Protection (AIP), a cloud-based solution that lets you classify and protect documents and emails by applying labels that pop up whenever a user saves the specified information. Restrictions can also be applied to emails such as “Do Not Copy” or “Do Not Forward.”


Secure your devices

Help your employees stay productive with greater flexibility without worrying about security exposure.

Your company is likely using multiple platforms and personal devices to access company data. So how do you guarantee that all those laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and applications remain secure?

With Microsoft 365, control which devices and users have access to business information and apply security policies to protect data on iOS and Android phones.

Enable your company to work any way they want by keeping all company data within approved applications or devices. And if a phone or laptop goes missing, no worries. You can selectively wipe company data remotely as needed.

  • Use Conditional Access

Microsoft 365 lets you control who has access to cloud-based applications with Conditional Access, a tool used by Azure Active Directory to bring signals together, make decisions, and enforce organizational policies. You can even allow or deny access to apps based on where a user is located, what time they’re logging in, and what types of apps or files they are requesting.

  • Apply security policies

With built-in tools such as Intune Mobile Device Management (MDM), you can establish security policies to protect business data on iOS and Android devices. For example, require users to provide a PIN or fingerprint to access information. You can also encrypt data and remotely wipe business information should a device go missing.

  • Manage business apps

Microsoft 365 offers protection for mobile applications that enables you as the administrator to keep business documents, emails, and other data within approved Office apps and prevent employees from saving these to unauthorized apps and other locations. This gives you control over company email and files, but not personal things like pictures and text messages.
