“Securing Your Business with Microsoft Office 365: Advanced Security Policies You Need to Know” – A Standard by MPR IT Solutions


Office 365’s Autopilot feature provides a streamlined process for setting up new devices and ensuring they are secure before they are used. It automates many of the traditional onboarding tasks, such as configuring security policies, installing software updates, and setting up user accounts.


Another advanced security feature of Office 365 is Intune. This cloud-based service allows you to manage and secure mobile devices, PCs, and other endpoints within your organisation. You can set policies for device configurations, enforce encryption, and remotely wipe data from lost or stolen devices.

Advanced Threat Protection:

Office 365’s Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is a security service that helps protect your organisation from advanced cyber threats. It provides advanced malware protection and real-time protection against phishing attempts, malicious links, and other cyber threats.

Data Loss Prevention:

Office 365’s Data Loss Prevention (DLP) feature helps prevent sensitive data from leaving your organisation. It allows you to create policies that automatically detect and protect sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other personal identifiable information.

Multi-Factor Authentication:

Office 365’s MultiFactor Authentication (MFA) feature adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide additional verification, such as a fingerprint or a code sent to their phone, before accessing sensitive information. This helps prevent unauthorised access to your business data.

Secure Score:

Office 365’sSecure Score is a tool that provides a score based on the security settings and configurations of your Office 365 environment. It provides recommendations for improving your security posture. The higher your score, the better your security is. Secure Score is a great way to keep track of your security status and identify areas for improvement.


Office 365 offers encryption for email messages and files stored in OneDrive and SharePoint. This ensures that your sensitive information is protected in transit and at rest. You can also apply your own encryption policies to further enhance your security.

Azure Active Directory:

Office 365 includes Azure Active Directory (AAD), which provides identity and access management services. This allows you to control who has access to your organisation’s resources and applications. You can also set up conditional access policies to ensure that only authorised users can access sensitive data.

Microsoft 365 Defender:

Office 365 can include Microsoft Defender, a comprehensive security solution that includes endpoint protection, email and identity protection, and advanced threat analytics. Microsoft 365 Defender uses AI to detect and respond to threats across multiple platforms, and provides a centralised view of your organisation’s security posture.

Microsoft 365 Compliance Center:

To ensure compliance with regulations and industry standards, Office 365 also offers the Microsoft 365 Compliance Center, a tool that helps you manage cloud security compliance requirements and protect sensitive data. The Compliance Center provides a dashboard that shows your compliance status, and data protection status, and allows you to create policies and reports to meet specific risk management policies and compliance requirements.

Phishing Protection:

Office 365 has built-in phishing protection that helps protect your business against phishing attacks. It uses machine learning models and detection algorithms to identify and block suspicious emails before they reach your inbox. We can also set up custom policies to further enhance your phishing protection and reduce the chances of ransomware attacks and business email compromises.

Email Security:

Office 365 employs a layered security approach that includes physical security measures, network security, and data security. Microsoft’s data centers are highly secure and are protected by multiple layers of physical and digital security measures. Office 365 also has built-in network security features that help protect against network-based attacks. In addition, data security features like data loss prevention (DLP) and information rights management (IRM) help protect against data leaks and unauthorised access to sensitive information.
