Enhancing Data Protection in Microsoft Office 365

Thumb original enhancing data protection in office 365

When decision makers consider moving their users to Office 365, a critical issue that faces them is:

• Will the platform be a complete replacement for all on-premises Microsoft servers and capabilities, or
• Will it merely be an addition to current on-premises capabilities?

Our research, as well as that of many others, indicates that most organizations are largely opting for the former: Office 365 is replacing on-premises deployments of Microsoft Exchange and other on-premises email platforms. While many other platforms will continue to be used, particularly in larger organizations, Office 365 is becoming the leading business email and collaboration tool in the workplace.
While Microsoft offers a solid platform of useful features and functions with Office 365, no platform can be all things to all users, and so decision makers must perform due diligence and determine what Office 365 does well and in which areas supplementary or replacement solutions from third parties will be required. Moreover, there is also the issue of whether the native capabilities in Office 365 provide adequate support for non-Microsoft content sources. Osterman Research holds the view that Office 365 is a solid and robust platform, but that in most cases organizations will want and need to deploy additional solutions to offer better performance or functionality, or to provide necessary functionality for solutions not offered by Microsoft. Plus, as discussed in this paper, the use of third-party solutions can be useful in helping to drive down the cost of an Office 365 deployment.

What follows is a discussion of the limitations within the Office 365 platform that decision makers will want to consider as they decide how to deploy Office 365 in their environment.

Win the War Against Ransomware

The threat of ransomware is only just beginning. In fact, nearly 50% of organizations have suffered at least one ransomware attack in the past 12 months, and estimates predict this will continue to increase at an exponential rate. While healthcare and financial services are the most targeted industries, no organization is immune. And the cost? Nothing short of exorbitant.

Ransomware is indeed big business. But to win the war against this cyber threat, without paying a king’s ransom, you need a strong defense. Rather than arming yourself with ...

Replacing Legacy AV - Benefits of the BlackBerry Cylance Approach

Legacy antivirus solutions are built upon several outmoded technologies ranging from byte-matching to post execution behavioral analysis. Threat actors have adapted to these well-known cybersecurity measures and responded with increasingly sophisticated attacks. For example, using byte-matching to identify malware has been foiled by attackers implementing polymorphic, single-use, and fileless attacks. Post-execution behavioral analysis is too risky of an approach when modern ransomware may encrypt vital data before malicious activity is detecte ...

AI-Driven Threat and Incident Prevention, Detection, and Response

Traditional cybersecurity approaches suffer from two glaring weaknesses. First, they rely on the digital signatures of known malware in order to identify threats. This approach leaves systems vulnerable to new and non-catalogued malware. Second, they are reactive in nature, ascribing to the “it’s not a matter of if, but when” mentality and often responding to the damage caused by zero-day threats only after they execute. Guarding against known threats is important but in the modern threat, landscape organizations must also address the over 350, ...
