Last year, at Inspire, we announced Microsoft 365, which brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security to deliver a complete, intelligent, and secure solution for the modern workspace. As part of the Microsoft 365 vision and expanding on the unified administration experience we started with the Microsoft 365 admin center, we have created the Microsoft 365 security and compliance center.
The Microsoft 365 security and compliance center maintains the centralized experience, intelligence, and customization that Office 365 security and compliance center offers today. In addition, it also enables data administrators, compliance officers, security administrators, and security operations to discover security and compliance controls across Office 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, and Windows in a single place. For example, data administrators can easily access features like Azure Information Protection and Microsoft Cloud App Security to help them detect, classify, protect, and report on their data.
The Microsoft 365 Security and Compliance Center
Over the coming months, we will continue integrating and streamlining administration experiences across Microsoft 365. To help organizations optimize their resources we will add new capabilities to help deploy and manage security and compliance solutions. We will also continue to improve the efficiency of the security and compliance administrator’s user experience, so they can complete their tasks quickly to get more done with their day.
The Microsoft 365 security and compliance center is rolling out now. Once deployed, administrators can login as they usually do, or navigate to https://protection.microsoft.com to try out the new security and compliance experiences. In addition, they can also navigate to the Microsoft 365 security and compliance center from the Microsoft 365 admin center. Administrators will still be able to configure and manage their Office 365 security and compliance settings within the new Microsoft 365 security and compliance center.
