As an Office 365 customer, you should know that the rising popularity of Office 365 makes its log-in page an attractive target. For this reason alone, additional protection against external threats is one of the smartest ways you can augment and secure Office 365.
Microsoft offers spam filtering with Office 365 but many clients choose to augment this protection — here’s why.
Recognizing the value of a hacked email account, phishers are constantly looking for new ways to exploit end-user vulnerabilities in corporate email systems. Since 44% of businesses experienced successful email account takeovers last year, sealing up this security gap is paramount.
The built-in Office 365 security measures listed previously are at the infrastructure level. User error protection is a segment of endpoint security which falls squarely within the customer’s jurisdiction of responsibility. You’ll still need to worry about educating your users about external threats like phishing attacks (plus, while we’re on the subject, you’ll need to protect your system from internal threats like accidental deletion, too).
So, back to those end-user vulnerabilities... what can you do? Enter the artificial eye, a third-party security measure that picks up the reins on end-user security to ensure enhanced protection from external threats like these.
