PROTECTING OFFICE 365
IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING OFFICE 365
First, Office 365 is a widely used suite of productivity and collaboration tool, with over 200 million monthly active users as of 2021. A significant portion of a company's sensitive data, such as emails, documents, and business-critical information, is likely to be stored and accessed using Office 365.
Second, Office 365 is a cloud-based service, which means that the data is not stored on the company's own servers, but on Microsoft's servers. Although more convenient, this can make it more difficult for the company to control access to the data and protect it from unauthorized access.
Third, Office 365 is a popular target for cybercriminals, who may attempt to access the data for various reasons, such as to steal and sell sensitive information, disrupt business operations, or hold the data for ransom.
Securify Identity is a platform for identity and access management (IAM) that can help to protect Office 365 by providing the following features
Securify Identity offers a range of advanced authentication methods, including physical or behavioral biometrics, security tokens, reverse and passwordless authentication to ensure that only authorized users are able to access Office 365.
Securify Identity allows companies to set policies, rules and conditions for accessing Office 365, such as requiring MFA for certain users or blocking access from certain locations. This can help to prevent unauthorized access and protect the data.
Securify Identity makes risk assessment to determine the level of authentication required for a given user or transaction. This approach helps to balance security and usability by requiring stronger authentication measures for higher-risk situations, while allowing lower-risk situations to be authenticated with fewer steps.
User activity monitoring
Securify Identity can track user activities in Office 365 and generates alerts for suspicious or unauthorized access. This can help companies to detect potential threats and take appropriate actions to protect the data.
Securify Identity supports single sign-on (SSO), which allows users to access Office 365 and other applications using a single set of credentials. This can simplify the login process and reduce the risk of password-related security issues.
Securify Identity supports passwordless authentication. Abolishing passwords eliminates many risks related to weak or stolen passwords.
