Securing Your Microsoft 365 Environment

Many companies that rushed to Microsoft's public cloud services in the last few years may not have fully considered all of the security implications.

Keeping Your Business Safe in a Changing World

We’ve recently increased focus on securing our clients’ Microsoft 365 environments. With national news highlighting the devastating impacts of cyber attacks, many businesses are asking about their security. Lots of companies that rushed to Microsoft’s public cloud services in the last few years may not have fully considered the security implications. Microsoft 365 default security settings are rather like a ‘screen door’ that few organizations have fine-tuned, allowing their users to fall prey to phish e-mails and social engineering.

Measuring Your Microsoft 365 Security

Microsoft provides a “Secure Score” rating for each client to show how their security settings rank compared to a fully tuned environment. The average Secure Score of all Microsoft clients is about 10%, leaving much room for improvement. In 2021, the risk of ransomware hitting unsecured companies is higher than ever. ProofPoint found that 74% of U.S. organizations experienced a successful phishing attack last year, 30% higher than the global average and a 14% year-over-year increase. Adjusting to the right amount of security to navigate modern circumstances matters to your business continuity and bottom line.

The Security Solution for Your Microsoft 365 Environment

We have crafted a reasonable balance between security and performance to give your business a stable and secure work environment. To recap, your Microsoft 365 environment, if left with default out-of-box configuration, is inherently insecure. Many companies have in-house staff that are unaware of these risks or how to protect against them. We are aware of the threat and we can manage it for you. Clients that we’ve assisted have significantly increased their Secure Score and warded off the threats that can harm and even halt their operations.
