Identify risks and Improve your Microsoft 365 Security

With increasing reliance on technology to gain a competitive advantage, cybersecurity is and has been one of the most critical and challenging requirement for conducting successful business. While solutions such as Microsoft 365 (M365) already come with robust and mature security, compliance and governance capabilities, organizations still need to regularly review security, governance and compliance requirements for their Microsoft 365 workloads to ensure they are being met and any gaps can be managed. Vulnerabilities continuously surface in a dynamic IT landscape, which most of the time present unexpected security risks that need to be addressed.

SoftwareONE’s Policies and Controls for 365 is a professional security service focused on your existing Microsoft 365 implementation, helping you to secure your 365 environment across different security domains and protecting your investments.

Application Control

Patch Applications

Configure Microsoft Macros

User Application Hardening

Limit Extent of Attacks

Restrict Admin Privileges

Patch Operating System

Multi-Factor Authentication

Backup Data and System Availability

Daily Backups
