Microsoft 365 is an integrated plan that includes solutions such as Windows 11, Office 365, and Enterprise Mobility + Security.
Microsoft 365 pushes the boundaries of the user's work environment. Businesses can give users access to their data and collaboration tools with greater security and confidence that both data and equipment are under control. You control who, when, how, and what device can access company's data.
Security is a headache for many and must be a priority for everyone. Accidental data leaks or security breaches can be very costly. Microsoft 365 is one of the best products to help reduce these risks.
Primend has years of experience in planning and deploying all Microsoft 365 workloads for different sizes and types of customers.
Why choose Microsoft 365?
Microsoft 365 enables you to control the entire data cycle and maintain control over your data. It uses artificial intelligence to perform security analyzes and has automated systems in place to eliminate security breaches.
For example, login risk policy:
Azure AD analyzes each user login. The purpose of the analysis is to identify suspicious activities that accompany each login. For example, do you use anonymous IP addresses to sign in, or did you log in from an unknown location?
In Azure AD, any suspicious activity that the system detects is also known as a risk event. Azure AD calculates a value based on the risk events detected at login. The value represents the probability (low, medium, high) that the login was not initiated by the correct user. This probability is called the login risk level.
The sign-in risk policy is an automated response that you can configure for a specific sign-in risk level. In your response, you can block access to your resources or request multi-level authentication (MFA) to gain access.
Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security is a smart mobile device management and security platform. It helps protect your business and offers employees new and flexible working opportunities.
Data Protection with Azure Information Protection - AIP that gives you control over your business data, even when it's out of business. AIP is a cloud-based solution that helps a company classify and, if desired, protect documents and emails by applying tags. Tags can be applied automatically by administrators who define the terms and conditions, but also by other users, or a combination of the two to provide recommendations to users.
In addition, there are many other security features.
