Collaboration And Security

Over the past year, Microsoft has increasingly focused on the fast-growing areas of collaboration and security. Microsoft’s Teams collaboration app has seen stunning growth since the shift to widespread remote work a year ago, with the company disclosing in late October that the app had reached 115 million daily active users. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s security business revenue has grown by more than 40 percent to surpass $10 billion during the past 12 months, CEO Satya Nadella said in late January. “This milestone is a testament to the deep trust organizations place in us, and we will continue to invest in new capabilities across all our products and services to protect our customers,” Nadella said at the time.

For the company’s latest investments in security--and in Teams--Microsoft is using its virtual Ignite 2021 conference for IT professionals to announce a number of major new features and updates. Among the announcements is the debut of shared channels in Teams, end-to-end encryption for Teams calls and updates for security solutions including Microsoft Defender and Azure Sentinel.

What follows are seven big updates in Microsoft Teams and security unveiled this week at Ignite 2021.
