Security is a critical aspect of any online platform, and Microsoft 365 is no exception. As a cloud-based productivity suite, Microsoft 365 offers a wide range of tools for communication, collaboration, and document management. However, with the increased use of these tools come increased security risks, making it essential to understand the importance of security for Microsoft 365.
One of the main security concerns for Microsoft 365 is data breaches. With sensitive information such as financial data, personal information, and confidential business documents stored in the cloud, it’s crucial to ensure that this information is protected against unauthorized access. Data breaches can come through various attacks, or even by previous employees who still have access to their business Microsoft 365 account. Sharepoint Sprawl is another issue with data breaches. which we reviewed in a previous blog: https://businesssoftwarecentre.com/sharepoint-sprawl-security-risks/
Another key security concern for Microsoft 365 is the risk of cyber attacks. With an increasing number of cyber threats, it’s essential to ensure that your organization’s Microsoft 365 environment is protected against malware, phishing, and other malicious activity. Microsoft 365 provides a range of security features to help protect against these threats, including real-time threat protection, advanced threat analytics, and cloud-based security solutions. All of which are great for you. However, it might be time consuming and daunting to handle these tasks. This is where MSPs offering TBSC’s Smarter Secure can help ease the pain. Through a managed service, you will have these security measures in place and checked regularly.
In addition, compliance is another important aspect of security for Microsoft 365. With an increasing number of regulations and standards for data protection, it’s essential to ensure that your organization’s Microsoft 365 environment is compliant with these regulations. Microsoft 365 provides a range of compliance features to help ensure that your organization is compliant with regulations such as HIPAA, SOC 2, and GDPR. However, TBSC tracks and monitors complaince issues and gets you ahead of the problem through regular automated data analysis and reporting.
Security is a critical aspect of Microsoft 365, and it’s essential to understand the importance of security for this platform. By using the security features prodvided by TBSC, organizations can protect against data breaches, cyber attacks, and ensure compliance with regulations. This can help to ensure that sensitive information is protected and that the organization’s reputation is protected. With the right security measures in place, organizations can enjoy the benefits of Microsoft 365 with the peace of mind that their data is protected.
Though Microsoft 365 provides a range of security features to help mitigate this risk, including multi-factor authentication, encryption, and data loss prevention, TBSC have developed Smarter Secure to provide a closer, detailed look at your security risks through in-deph data analysis shown through a Secure Score.
