Utilizing M365 Security for Remote Work

It’s time to rethink our approach to security.

Cloud applications, and the mobile workforce have redefined the security perimeter. Employees are working remotely, and bringing their own devices. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has now added to the strain of securing your organization. The pandemic has forced many businesses into supporting a primarily home-based workforce.  

During these challenging times, it is vital to ensure your organization is not only working, but collaborating securely. Network-based security is no longer adequate to secure organizations against potential threats.

Watch Now: Digital Strategy Experts

A new security model must be adopted to enable the mobile workforce and protect identity, devices, applications and data wherever they are located. Each request made by a user or service is properly authenticated, authorized, and protected with encryption end-to-end. This is the basis for the “Zero Trust” security model.  Zero Trust teaches us to “never trust, always verify.”

The Guiding Principles Incorporated:

  1. Verify explicitly
  2. Use Least privileged access
  3. Assume compromise

With that in mind – Microsoft has identified 12 key tasks to help security teams implement the most important security capabilities, as quickly as possible. These tasks work to secure six foundation elements: identities, devices, applications, data, infrastructure and networks.
