Extract from Kurt Mackie’s article “Microsoft Adding Office 365 Security and Compliance Capabilities”
Microsoft on Tuesday announced various Office 365 security and compliance improvements, mostly for Microsoft 365 subscribers.
The common theme of the announcements is the added support for clamping down on how corporate information gets distributed by Office 365 end users. Microsoft is adding things like encryption for external messages, as well as improvements to its “e-discovery” forensic tools for finding wayward information leakers. General availability releases and previews were announced, and most of the announcements concerned tenancies using the upper-tier Microsoft 365 E5 plan.
