One of the biggest challenges in digital transformation is ensuring security across an organization’s entire digital landscape without reducing user productivity. Piecing together individual solutions can result in a complex security posture that overburdens operations and encourages users to bypass security measures. Cloud computing allows enterprises to share security signals worldwide, which is changing how they do security.
In this new world where data and users roam free, it’s even more important to have an integrated suite of security tools. Microsoft 365 is a complete, intelligent solution that helps secure corporate data and protect against bad actors, while taking advantage of the transformative opportunities presented by cloud computing. Its built-in security solutions integrate easily and share insights from the trillions of security signals on the Intelligent Security Graph across the global Microsoft ecosystem. With Microsoft 365, you can reduce the number of security vendors you manage and safeguard your organization, without sacrificing productivity.
Microsoft 365 keeps users, data, devices, and applications safe
An organization’s data is their most valuable asset, yet most enterprises lack the ability to understand what data is sensitive and control access to that data. Data protection requires a layered approach that starts with a great user authentication experience with policies to control access to sensitive information regardless of location or device. Microsoft 365 includes identity protection that provides the foundation for secure access to data, devices and applications. A set of advanced threat protection tools communicate with each other to correlate threat information across your entire digital footprint and automate threat protection, which eases the workload on your security operations team. Security insights recommend ways to optimize the configuration of your security tools and provide a quantifiable measurement of your security posture.
Microsoft 365 Enterprise E5 unifies user productivity and enterprise security into a single suite
For customers that embrace the Microsoft productivity suite, there are significant gains to be realized in security. While no single security provider will cover your entire digital footprint, through Microsoft’s investments and scale within enterprises, their customers have an advantage in creating a comprehensive, adaptive security program.
Comprehensive, adaptive security
Technology has changed the way enterprises conduct business. As people bring devices, apps, and data into organizations today, protecting company assets requires a new approach. It’s important to find a balance between powerful, complicated security capabilities and a security posture that you can maintain over time with your current staff and budget.
Imagine if you could easily; identify sensitive information automatically, eliminate passwords entirely in favor of biometrics or pins, identify, quarantine, and wipe a compromised endpoint all from a single location and quantify your security position and gain insights on how to improve it.
All of this and more is possible with Azure Advanced Threat Protection, just one of four valuable tools included in Microsoft 365 Enterprise E5. Interested in what other tools are available to you? Oakwood Systems Group, Inc. has the answers to your questions. Contact us to learn more.
