Research uncovers its Security and Compliance Limitations

Office 365 provides substantial communication and collaboration capabilities, but it has limitations when it comes to offering ample security and compliance protections.

SE Labs found that Microsoft Exchange Online Protection [EOP] achieved only an 8% effectiveness rating and Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection [ATP] achieved only a 35% rating, significantly lower than third-party solutions that were in the high 90s.

Read this white paper by analyst firm Osterman Research to learn about:

  • Office 365's insufficient security and compliance capabilities
  • Your vulnerabilities to data breaches, business email compromise, GDPR fines, ransomware infections, and phishing attacks
  • What supplemental needs you will require from 3rd party solutions This paper also provides results from an in-depth survey of organizations using Office 365.

"The use of 3rd-party solutions can result in higher catch rates for spam, phishing, malware, etc."
