The Office 365 Dilemma: How Secure is Secure?

05 Jun 2019, 11:20 - 11:45

Strategy Talks

Office 365 has captured the imagination of many organisations, offering a wide range of productivity applications in a single platform. However, as organisations race to the cloud they realise that solving the security challenges may not be as straightforward as they hoped. The Office 365 platform encompasses communication, content creation and distribution applications stored in a cloud environment that’s open to all (any user, any device). In short, this single platform reflects the full range of security challenges that any organisation faces, so no wonder security deserves a deeper think.
