Hi everyone,

 

To prevent the potential for data exfiltration through a linked but separate cloud service (see picture) Is it possible to prevent users from my organization from adding a cloud service storage (one drive from another organization

Excel - Add Service.png0365 tenant assuming they have the necessary credentials to add the service??

 

If this has been asked somewhere my apologies

@Kalcite Hello Basil. Yes, it's possible to block third-party storage providers as well as B2B OneDrive sync. There are a couple of options available. See links for more information.

 

Use Group Policy to control OneDrive sync settings

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy

 

Policy Setting to Prevent B2B Sync

B2B Sync

OwaMailboxPolicy (AdditionalStorageProvidersAvailable)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/client-access/set-owamailboxpolicy?view=...

*edit* (noticed this is available from the M365 admin portal as well)

 

You can also block third-party in Teams.
