With more and more information stored in the cloud, ability to discover, analyze and respond to requests for that data are more important than ever. That’s why Microsoft has added Advanced eDiscovery to the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center — to help companies quickly find relevant emails and information across large quantities of stored content.
Utilizing OneDrive for Business, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams allows a company to build a stronger and more collaborative experience for its team. The ability to format document libraries helps a company create important content, edit and share it, which increases productivity and strengthen connectivity.
Before we jump into the cloud app security implementation or the management processes, let’s talk about the cloud app security what it is and why would do we need cloud app security. It’s a Microsoft cloud-based solution that gives you insights into your suspicious user activities.
Recently we have discussed the subject of zero-trust network security, but at the Security and Compliance Virtual conference that took place recently, experts talked a lot about zero-trust architecture in Microsoft 365 environment, and we’ve decided to share some of the most interesting insights from the conference.
We will plan, design and implement a Windows Autopilot – the future of device deployment designed to allow you to setup, pre-configure and repurpose the devices for your environment, with little or no infrastructure in place. You would be able to deploy Windows automatically, without an image, to PCs anywhere in the world at anytime.
With these capabilities, users can easily apply sensitivity labels to documents and emails – based on the labels defined by your organization. The experience is built directly into Office apps, with no need for any special plugins or add-ons. It looks and feels like the familiar Office experience, which makes it easy for workers to use.
Perimeter-based networks protected by a firewall are familiar to anyone because they were so common. But the key word is “were”, because they are outdated now. They function assuming that machines and users within a perimeter are reliable – but it actually never was the case and least of all it applies to modern reality when Bring your own device (BOYD) and Bring your own cloud (BYOC) trends are in place, and cybercriminals are getting more sophisticated than ever before. The previous generation of networks cannot accommodate modern workstyles and cannot perform their main role of protecting data, as when the cyber-criminals compromise even one end-point within a perimeter, they can laterally move there to extract sensitive business data.
The key to success for the business is working smarter instead of working harder. The idea of cloud technologies which can make your work a lot easier is very tempting. That sounds great to the business folks until the IT guys come along and say there’s a whole bunch of work should be done to get there. Moreover, the cost of transition to the cloud is not limited by the licenses you buy but comprise multiple expenses that arise along the way. At this point, it suddenly seems that it is better to keep to traditional on-premises servers, install them yourself and manage them yourself. But it is a misconception as investing into aging infrastructure can actually do more harm in the long run. To break this vicious circle and reduce the cost of cloud transition FastTrack came to life.
In day-to-day life of a company compliance is a necessary evil. According to research, there are more than 200 updates from 750 regulatory bodies every day – a huge burden for the employees to stay up-to-date with all these changes. Even when compliance and privacy officers know the legal guidelines and internal policies well enough, they don’t know which technology solutions can help them to meet the conditions. On the other hand, IT professionals know about the technology and how to use features like Data Loss Prevention and e-Discovery, but they don’t know how to go about with managing these features and compliance regulations.
New technology is changing our everyday life and as consumers we have very high expectations, no surprise. Our work-related life cannot lag behind hence we now witness a new culture of work emerging. This is being driven by globalization, competitiveness and certainly technology trends around the cloud solutions, artificial intelligence, mixed reality and mobility. All these things are disrupting industries and changing the way work is getting done both for employees and employers.
