According to an internal survey, over 80% of SMBs collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and over 30% collect Social Security Numbers (SSNs). Given the amount of sensitive information being processed, it becomes imperative for SMBs to have IT processes in place to protect sensitive data. That’s where Microsoft 365 Business can help.
Microsoft 365 Business is a comprehensive suite of enterprise grade security tools curated specifically for SMBs with less than 300 employees. It provides a layered approach to protecting sensitive data that spans Identity, Device, Email and Documents.
Providing a layered approach to protecting data.
Since data traverses across devices, applications and documents, it becomes difficult for a single point solution to protect it. The security features in Microsoft 365 Business protect your data across Identity, Device, Application and Documents – giving you a robust set of protections that spans various IT layers while also providing your users a seamless experience. Let’s show you how:
Protecting Identity: Identity policies are key to determining who gets to access to sensitive data. With features like Conditional Access & MFA, you have the ability to define granular access policies to control who accesses your data.
Protecting Email: Since email is the key gateway to business data, it becomes a strategic imperative to protect your sensitive information from being shared externally. Preservation of your business data is also important from a business continuity standpoint. Microsoft 365 Business has features like Data Loss Prevention, Exchange Online Archiving & Office 365 Information Protection capabilities.
Protecting data on mobile devices: Since most users use their personal mobile devices to access corporate data like email and documents, it becomes imperative to protect corporate data on unmanaged personal mobile devices. Intune’s Mobile Application Management (MAM) feature helps you do that.
Protecting Documents: Since a majority of our productivity occurs in Office documents, we now have the ability to protect sensitive documents through Azure Information Protection capabilities in Microsoft 365 Business.
We hope that through this blogpost, you have confidence that Microsoft 365 Business has robust features to help protect your sensitive data across various IT layers. For more details on Microsoft 365 Business, please visit aka.ms/m365b
