This also allows them to see the bigger picture and make better decisions on threats and compromises that can disrupt operations or cost the company’s brand and bottom line.
One of its significant features is URL detonation, which protects organization’s data from malicious URLs. Office 365 checks a list of malicious links, as well as determines malicious attachments so that all users within the organization are protected throughout online activities and data sharing.
The Threat Intelligence feature also shares intelligence with Windows Defender so malware activity can be closely monitored across Windows and Office 365, making users’ own activities smooth and well-protected.
Broader protection is also implemented for all Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business.
