Microsoft 365 Security

Security for Microsoft 365 is a top focus for the announcements at Inspire 2020. Microsoft said that new security capabilities are aimed at providing greater visibility around security issues and improved data protection, which are crucial for organizations that currently have large numbers of remote workers.

Microsoft introduced a public preview for Insider Risk Management and Communication Compliance features for enhanced detection and remediation in Microsoft 365. With the Insider Risk Management feature, security professionals benefit from improved quality of signals from end-user activities—such as expanded signals from Windows 10 (including movement of files to a USB drive or shared over the network); native signals from Teams/Exchange/Sharepoint; and endpoint security signals via Microsoft Defender ATP. For Communication Compliance, security professionals will be enabled to more effectively detect violations of compliance regulations and codes of conduct.

Another key Microsoft 365 security capability now in public preview is Double Key Encryption, which enables protection of important confidential data as well as encryption key control. The feature provides two keys for data protection—one of which is controlled by the organization and the other by Microsoft—which prevents others from viewing the data since they would need to have both keys.

At Inspire, Microsoft is also unveiling Endpoint Data Loss Prevention, which complements Microsoft 365‘s current data loss prevention capabilities. Crucially, Endpoint Data Loss Prevention—which will be built into Windows 10, Office apps and the Edge browser—does not require an additional agent to prevent unwanted transfer of sensitive data. Organizations will “immediately” get alerts in the Microsoft 365 compliance center (Activity Explorer) when access of sensitive data occurs, Microsoft said. Endpoint Data Loss Prevention is now in public preview, the company said.
