It is nearly impossible for people and organizations to manually prioritize the exponentially increasing number of security signals. Microsoft, however, has recently updated Office 365 with unparalleled security features, and today we are introducing you to how Office 365 users can now proactively manage risks and stay ahead of threats with Microsoft’s new capabilities that include:
Office 365 Secure Score is a new security analytics tool that helps you automatically asses the security posture of your office 365 account, data and devices and discover the best security practices available to you to implement based on your overall security and productivity goals.
Office 365 secure score gives you better visibility into your Office 365 security configuration and the security features available to you via providing you insights to help you understand your current Office 365 security configuration. It also shows you how implementing additional controls can further enhance your security and mitigate risks.
Secure Score Summary displays your Secure Score which is the sum of the points associated with security configurations that you have partially or fully adopted. The total score, the denominator, is the sum of the points associated with all the security controls that are available to you through your Office 365 plan.
In this example, the Secure Score is 110 out of 198 points possible:
Score Analyzer allows you to track and report on your score over time. The graph shows your Secure Score on any date in the past, what specific actions you completed and which actions were available to you. You can also export your score results to a CSV file for easy planning and communication with your organizations.
Secure Score also provides suggestions on the possible actions you can take to improve your security position. These suggestions are prioritized based on the effectiveness of the action and level of impact to end users.
Office 365 Secure Score is now generally available to organizations with an Office 365 subscription.
