Office 365 —or O365 —is a cloud-based productivity solution for your enterprise, enabling collaboration and the ability for employees to work anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Microsoft 365 Enterprise is a complete, intelligent solution, which brings together the best of Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and Enterprise Mobility + Security, that empowers everyone to be creative and work together, securely.
With an O365 subscription, your users can access and collaborate on e-mail, document editing, presentations, chat, web conferencing, cloud storage, and more.
Office 365 is a subscription service to a suite of cloud-based software-as-a-service products, such as hosted Exchange Servers (for email), Skype for Business Servers, SharePoint (internal social networking, collaboration, public web site), Lync (communication, VoIP, conferencing), and others.
O365 products can be managed and configured through a simple online portal. This means that users can be added manually and set up for single sign-on using Active Directory. More advanced setups and features are available through the use of PowerShell scripts.
O365 provides tremendous benefits to enterprises through its offerings such as OneDrive, Microsoft Office Suite, Exchange, Sharepoint, Power BI, and Delve to name a few.
Since Microsoft delivers these applications from the cloud, users can access O365 accounts from any internet-connected computer. It’s no wonder that a third of organizations worldwide now use Office 365.
Aside from the direct benefits to be reaped from O365, organizations can also make use of Microsoft Workplace Analytics to tap into O365 info and shine a light on how the organization collaborates and spends its time. This allows decision-makers or managers to get an idea of behavioral metrics within the company and utilize them to their benefit.
For example, a Fortune 500 sales organization used Workplace Analytics to identify patterns of top performers and encouraged the rest of the organization to practice in those behaviors. This resulted in a significant increase in sales figures for the entire company.
Have you implemented Office 365 (O365) and would like an independent security assessment performed to allow your organization to review any security issues with the vendor that performed the implementation. Infront Consulting Group can provide your organization a remote, short, fixed price engagement that will involve a security review of your O365 estate.
Infront will perform the following tasks …
• Perform a security analysis to help identify potential areas where security vulnerabilities exist
• Provide a full inventory of your current O365 security configurations
• Provide a list of recommendations to mitigate identified security risks including:
• Produce an Office 365 Secure Score Report
Please note that Infront will require Global Admin level access temporarily to the O365 tenant to perform a security assessment and review and produce a report based on our findings.
Infront will use Microsoft’s O365 Portal to conduct the security review. Infront will work with you as required and provide a 1-2 hour presentation to management of our findings at the end of the engagement.
The Result: At the end of this engagement, your organization will have a detailed O365 Security Analysis report listing areas of risk and providing details on ways to remediate or eliminate the risk.
