Top 10 Security and Privacy Features of Office 365

It is important to maintain the confidentiality, security of your business and customer data, that is why, Office 365 offers an incredible security program of controls, policies and systems. Office 365 is a perfect security solution which has been developed by following the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle.

Office 365 implements the castle (defense-in-depth) approach to deliver business-level physical, logical, and data defense. Administrative and user controls enable you to personalize your IT security further to suit your needs.

Corporate IT employees can use MDM (Mobile Device Management) to administer and secure devices across multiple platforms such as Windows, Android and iOS. They can effectively identify, examine, and shield valuable information with DLP (Data Loss Prevention) controls in MAM (Mobile Application Management).

Office 365 offers the following security features:

1. For multiple layers of physical security including biometric scanning, motion sensor, security breach alarms and video camera surveillance, Microsoft datacenters have 24-hour monitoring. All personnel must use multi-factor authentication to access the data.

2. Data loss prevention can be united with Office 365 Message Encryption and Rights Management to empower administrators with improved controls. Users can use right policies to shield sensitive data, avoiding data leakage or protection breaches.

3. Exchange Online Protection defends business email against spam and malware. Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection protects data against unidentified and sophisticated attacks, securing business against risky attachments and malevolent links in users’ email.

4. Office 365 never uses mining or accessing of your data for advertising or marketing purpose. However, many cloud platforms might use this data for targeting ads like Gmail, Facebook, but in Office 365, you don’t have to worry about it.

5. Microsoft uses customer data only to deliver the service; they will not otherwise access your mailbox without your consent. They may access the data to enhance overall experience, but they ensure that data will not be shared.

6. Microsoft takes backups of your data on regular basis. They use multiple layers of redundancy and backups of data at data center level in order to restore it easily.

7. They will not delete all the data in your mail account at the end of your subscription. They provide you a timeframe (90 days) to export your data. You can take the advantage of the data portability that they offer.

8. Microsoft offers in-region server to keep customer data when the subscription is first created. In-region doesn’t necessarily mean a country; however, if this is an apprehension then you should look carefully at the details in the Trust Center.

9. They enforce users to keep strong passwords to increase security of your data. Users those like more protections, they can enable multi-factor authentication. This way, users can have extra layer protection than just a password.

10. Microsoft allows you to turn off and on privacy related features to suit your needs. Both as an administrator as well as a regular user, you can control what and by whom it is seen in your company.
