Microsoft 365 Security and Data Protection – What’s Included and What’s Not?


Complete the form below to watch the webinar instantly.

Microsoft’s data centers are protected by state-of-the-art security infrastructure and processes, which make them virtually impossible to breach directly. However, your Microsoft 365 tenant is not immune to data loss. The architectural and functional aspects of Microsoft 365 make your tenant vulnerable to compromise and data loss due to human mistakes, programmatic errors, malicious insider activity and phishing, malware and ransomware attacks.

While Microsoft provides some native functionality to help customers protect their tenants from these threats, there are significant gaps that need to be addressed. Microsoft offers optional tools and technologies to help customers secure their tenants and protect their data, but licensing for this functionality is complex, confusing and costly. Most Microsoft 365 customers are unsure about what protections are included in their licensing plan and what additional protections are needed, which results in overspending on licensing or unknowingly putting their tenants at risk.

Listen to 14-time Microsoft Office Apps and Services MVP Matthew McDermott and Spanning Director of Product Marketing Dave Wallen as they discuss:

  • Microsoft 365 data threats
  • The security and data protection features included in each licensing plan
  • Data protection gaps in your Microsoft 365 ecosystem
  • Actions that lead to better Microsoft 365 data protection
