Incoming: new Microsoft 365 security and compliance offerings

Microsoft has just announced two new packages for helping to ensure that your end-to-end Microsoft 365 experience is both secured and compliant. These new offerings take functionality that’s currently only available within the E5 licence and make it available to organisations using alternative licences. The result is that some of Microsoft 365’s most advanced protection capabilities are now available at a reduced cost.

The two new offerings that will be available to purchase this February are:

  • Information Protection & Compliance – allowing organisations to harness Office 365’s Advanced Compliance and Azure Information Protection (AIP) capabilities, this offering helps organisations by using artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically classify and apply protection and retention to content. This takes the onus away from staff needing to manually classify content, reducing the effort required for an organisation to be regulatory compliant.
  • Identity & Threat Protection – designed to help secure your content, this offering combines the following three functions:
    • Azure Active Directory, for centralised identity management
    • Microsoft Cloud App Security, for managing your shadow IT
    • Microsoft Threat Protection, a collection of services which work in tandem to secure your entire modern workplace
