New security management and transparency capabilities coming to Office 365!!!

Microsoft Cloud App Security, a comprehensive cloud access security broker (CASB) solution, based on Microsoft’s acquisition of cloud security innovator Adallom . It will also power new advanced security management capabilities for Office 365 that will improve IT visibility and control.


Let’s take a closer look at the new security management capabilities coming to Office 365

 Office 365 advanced security alerts alert you to anomalous and suspicious activity so that you can take action. The system notifies you of unusual behavior, such as if a user takes an administrative action (like creating a new user) from a location they have never logged onto before.

 Office 365 cloud app discovery gives you the ability to understand which other cloud services your users are connecting to. From the Office 365 admin portal, you can view a dashboard on network activity. For example, you can see where users are storing and collaborating on documents and how much data is being uploaded to apps or services outside of Office 365.


Office 365 app permissions gives you the ability to approve or revoke permissions for applications accessing Office 365. For example, you may have users who have approved their CRM application to access Office 365 contact data. If that CRM application is a non-sanctioned app that doesn’t comply with your business policy, you may want to revoke access.

These new capabilities will begin to roll out in the third quarter of this year and will be offered as part of the Office 365 E5 plan.
