Microsoft 365 Security Features Protect Business Data from Evolving Threats
A NYC area Microsoft 365 expert and cyber security consultant examines Microsoft 365 security features in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. The informative article first asserts that Microsoft security offerings continually evolve to keep pace with the threat landscape.
The author then explores Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Security, previously called Defender Advanced Threat Protection. He then explains how Microsoft Defender for Identity helps to protect against both outside attacks and insider threats.
He continues by briefly reviewing Microsoft Defender for Office 365 and Microsoft Cloud App Security. He concludes by urging readers to start with five Microsoft 365 security features, including encryption, multi-factor authentication, and safer attachment, link, and password policies.
“By addressing endpoint security, identity and access management, email threats and cloud access security, Microsoft 365 security features deliver a unified approach to cyber security,” stated Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies.
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Microsoft 365 Security Features Protect Business Data from Evolving Threats.”
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint
“With remote work and the ability to conduct business on a multitude of devices, the attack surface has broadened exponentially. Microsoft Defender for Endpoint empowers organizations to detect and protect each endpoint connecting to the network. Using machine learning, it inventories each endpoint, as well as the software and processes running on each device.”
Microsoft Defender for Identity
“Typically, attackers will attempt to compromise user accounts and then move laterally through the network. Once they elevate privileges to admin level, they can take over a domain and wreak havoc. Formerly known as Azure Advanced Threat Detection, Microsoft Defender for Identity helps to protect against both outside attacks and insider threats.”
Microsoft Defender for Office 365
“Microsoft Defender for Office 365 addresses threats that arise through email and collaboration. Because email remains the delivery method of choice for malware, Microsoft Defender for Office 365 includes Safe Attachment and Safe Links protections. Additionally, it uses machine learning to identify phishing emails.”
Microsoft Cloud App Security
“As a cloud access security broker (CASB), Microsoft Cloud App Security essentially acts as a firewall in the cloud. It identifies each cloud app and service being used in the organization, assigning a risk score to each. Additionally, using automated policies and processes, it detects and addresses risky behavior.”
