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.
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.
With the recent launch of new security features in Office 365, such as Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Mobile Device Management (MDM), we are expanding the mission of the Office 365 Compliance Center and, in turn, are renaming it the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center.
Customer security considerations (CSC) workbook can be used by customers to facilitate a quick review and implementation of the security controls available in Office 365. The CSC workbook is designed to provide customers with information on key security and compliance features to consider when adopting, deploying and managing Office 365.
Over the last year, we’ve introduced several new security and compliance capabilities to Office 365, including Advanced Threat Protection, Customer Lockbox and Advanced eDiscovery, which integrates Equivio. Together, these built-in security capabilities make Office 365 the most secure, compliant and enterprise-ready productivity offering on the market. Today we’re pleased to announce that Customer Lockbox and Advanced eDiscovery will be available for customers to purchase starting December 1, 2015.
