We are pleased to announce a new feature in the Office Cloud Policy Service that will allow you to easily find and configure policies that are recommended by Microsoft as security baseline policies. If you are not familiar with Microsoft Office Security Baselines take a look at this article.
To easily identify Security Baseline policies, we have added a new column to the policy table called ‘Recommendation’. If the policy is recommended as a Security Baseline you will see the policy tagged as such in this column. You can also use the column filter to limit the view to only policies that are tagged as Security Baseline.
The experience to configure these policies has also been optimized as the policy is preconfigured with the recommended settings. You can simply review the policy behavior and click OK to accept the recommended configuration.
If the recommended configuration does not meet your needs, you can select to manually configure the policy and configure the settings.
