Microsoft 365 Security and Security Hardening

Signing up for Microsoft Office 365 is a simple process. Setting up email accounts, uploading sensitive data, and sharing data in Microsoft 365 can all provide immediate benefits to any team, but security issues are often neglected.

Using cloud-based services and solutions is probably easier than it has ever been. Today, more data is being stored on cloud servers, and cloud servers are available from anywhere in the world. Before you were introduced to Microsoft 365, your email accounts and sensitive data were frequently stored on your network, generally protected from the eyes and hands of unauthorized users. That is, as long as you had the proper security protocols in place that were robust enough to stop malicious actors from gaining access to your network and data.

Cloud-based solutions and services have changed expectations about security. When you upload sensitive data to a cloud-based platform, the data will be made available anywhere. If you do not have a plan in place to secure your sensitive and confidential data, your essential and critical business-related data could be openly exposed to cyber threats, cyberattacks, data breaches, and more – resulting in the loss of sensitive data, penalties and fines, and brand reputation damage.

Has your team been set up to use Microsoft 365? Are you worried about business security? To ensure your organization has an effective Microsoft 365 security plan, Motz Technologies can assess, harden, and manage the security features of your Microsoft 365 solution. The Microsoft 365 security and security hardening offerings provided by Motz Technologies are suited for small and mid-sized businesses in South Central Pennsylvania looking to reduce their cybersecurity risks while leveraging advanced technologies.

Microsoft 365 Security Assessment

A Microsoft 365 Security assessment will identify security risks and vulnerabilities and will provide the key insight you need to reduce these threats. The Microsoft 365 Security assessment will also ensure your confidential and sensitive information is secure. You will also be provided a roadmap on how to prevent threats from hindering your organization and how to fully comply with industry-related regulatory requirements.

The Microsoft 365 Security assessment will cover all the areas included in our Microsoft 365 Managed Services. Policy changes, password creation and management, creating new accounts, rule creation, and more can all keep systems secure and provide relevant information should a cyberattack occur.  When cyber threats and provisioning reports are reviewed, intrusion attempts by malicious actors can be detected before sensitive data is accessed.

Microsoft 365 Security Hardening

Microsoft 365 Security Hardening services are designed to uncover any security gaps within your existing Microsoft 365 cloud environment that are making your organization more vulnerable to cyber threats. An extensive assessment of your Microsoft 365 environment will lead to the creation of an action plan to ensure your existing and future Microsoft 365 environment follows all security guidelines and best practices in your industry.

Microsoft 365 Security Hardening services can also be used to make recommendations on services and solutions that can provide extra protection and value to your operations. Implementing an effective security plan is about creating a balance between data protection and accessibility. Without the proper balance of the two, your systems and processes will become vulnerable and can lead to them being compromised. Microsoft 365 Security services provide enhanced capabilities that can protect your privacy while allowing you to remain productive and efficient.

How Can You Improve Your Microsoft 365 Security?

One of the common questions that we receive about Microsoft 365 Security is how it can be improved. Here are a few steps you can take to enhance your business’s Microsoft 365 Security:

  • Enable MFA and 2FA methods to ensure malicious actors do not have a chance to get their hands on sensitive information – this can be one of the most effective ways to improve your organization’s security.
  • Make careful decisions about who has administrative privileges.
  • Use data encryption.

With everything that Microsoft 365 has to offer, it remains a popular option for organizations of all sizes. However, cloud services are changing rapidly, and this can present several challenges for your internal IT staff. Motz Technologies will help take the challenges out of the cloud so every experience you deliver is done on a well-architected system.

No business wants to become the victim of a cyberattack, but there is no single solution that can address every security issue you may have within your business. Your business needs to have a fine balance between the security controls you need to enable efficiency and productivity, but you do not want those security controls to compromise your business.

Microsoft 365 Security Services By Motz Technologies

At Motz Technologies, we understand this problem. Therefore, we recommend that businesses simplify their approach to security challenges by using security capabilities that are built into their systems, devices, applications, and productivity tools rather than implementing a variety of security solutions that are developed by different manufacturers and that may not seamlessly integrate into business operations.
