The protection of collaboration platforms: Integrated functions in Office 365

The protection of collaboration platforms: Integrated functions in Office 365

In this part of the series on protection of collaboration platforms, we will introduce to you the standard Office 365 features.

Malware protection has always been a critical topic for the IT administration. For this reason, Microsoft is constantly working on enhancing its solutions for malware protection.

For protecting Office 365, Microsoft offers the solution Microsoft 365 Defender, also formerly known as “Advanced Threat Protection”. Microsoft 365 Defender is a solution for the detection and prevention as well as the investigation and reaction of endpoints, identities, emails and applications (apps).

What are the functions and specific features of Microsoft Defender and what weaknesses does it have? You can find the answer to these question in this article from our GBS Blog.

New release of iQ.Suite 360 expanding the Threat Protection solution for Office 365

GBS is continuously expanding its Threat Protection solution for Office 365. The first preview version of the OneDrive for Business support was released in July. This enables effective protection of files that are stored in OneDrive for Business. This is the case, for example, when a user in Microsoft Teams makes a file available to other participants in a chat or a meeting. In addition, all files that a user saves directly in OneDrive for Business are protected by the well-proved integrated malware protection of iQ.Suite 360.

Effective protection against potential file threats is fully available in the preview version. However, not all scan types are supported yet. In the following weeks, full support for OneDrive for Business will be published in iQ.Suite 360.
