With the increasing spread of email scam’s and Malware, Microsoft has made a few improvements to Office 365’s threat management. Outlook will now notify you if an email is malware, phish or spam. Organisations relying heavily on email will now be able to monitor the types of threats they are receiving. And as more and more people are straying from the security of the corporate network. The importance of having endpoint security protection, is now absolutely vital.
With hundreds of Thousands of people now permanently working from home, A corporation’s security provider can only do so much to protect from an attack. But this is where Microsoft’s new secure Office comes in. Their new ATP (Advanced Threat Protection), will help mitigate some of the security risks. From Q3 2020 onward, Microsoft will screen any emails that enter a users mailbox for signs of Spam, Malware or Phishing. Consequently, if any of these are detected, It will be flagged as such, but will still be delivered to the end recipient. Accordingly, because Microsoft doesn’t just delete the email, any false detection’s can still be opened.
How will this affect my Office 365?
Most corporate and business customers using Microsoft’s ATP will start to see the new detection system from September. Importantly, this will not interfere with the general usability of outlook or office.
If your business utilises the ATP system, IT managers will see which email accounts receive the most threats. And can then implement preventative Security measures.
