It’s the New Year and one of the things that I hope gives you increased peace of mind in 2016 are the continued investments that we are making to protect your information within the Office 365 service, as I explain on our latest episode of “From Inside the Cloud.” —Watch this episode of From Inside the Cloud with Rudra Mitra.
Skype for Business on Android is here! The new Office 365 Protection Center arrived this month, along with Access 2016 Runtime, smart rename support in the Excel 2016 data model, Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery, the Office 365 Planner Preview and Matter Center for developers. See what else is new in Office 365.
It may be the holidays, but we’re still hard at work delivering a slate of new apps and features. New Windows 10 phones like the Lumia 950 now ship with Office Mobile. We also have updates for Office for Apple devices, Skype for Business for Android, a preview of Office 365 Planner and new management tools for IT.
Office Extensibility exists for a single, simple purpose: make Office more useful by unleashing the creativity of developers to craft purpose-driven, relevant experiences for their users. We’re excited about pushing forward our vision of new and better ways for users to be productive. Combining that with the creativity and vision of third-party developers from around the world and companies of all sizes, the possibilities are endless.
Today, I’d like to share an update on our OneDrive for Business storage plans, the availability of our Next Generation Sync Client and several other new capabilities we’re delivering in our December update. —Read more from Jeff Teper, Microsoft corporate vice president, about updates to OneDrive for Business.
Today, we’re pleased to announce availability of the Skype for Business app for Android. Over the past few months, we received valuable feedback from people participating in the preview program, and we’re excited to make the new app broadly available so that everyone can be more productive while on the go.
Maintaining the security and privacy of customer data in Office 365 is our top priority. In line with our efforts to be more transparent with our customers, we have enhanced auditing around Office 365 information security and privacy controls. Office 365 is one of the first major cloud service providers to be assessed against both ISO 27001 and ISO 27018 standards.
