Office 365 Message Encryption Offers a Major Upgrade to Email Encryption

Email-Encryption-Office-365-Message-Encryption-OME-

Office 365 Message Encryption (OME) capabilities can now allow organizations to share a protected email with anyone on any device. This is a game-changer for your company’s security and collaboration efforts.
__________________________________________

Have you seen the new capabilities of Office 365 Message Encryption? It’s a major upgrade, and it can help your organization significantly by taking away a big headache. People use email every day to exchange sensitive information – financials, contracts, confidential product information, customer or employee information, and more. Because of this, mailboxes can become repositories for all kinds of confidential information that you do not want to leak. This kind of information leakage is a serious threat to your organization’s security.

Most organizations don’t take the necessary actions on security until it’s too late, but a security breach could cost millions, drive away customers, disrupt your business, and become a PR nightmare. So how can organizations collaborate and stay secure? The new Office 365 Message Encryption (OME) capabilities allow organizations to share a protected email with anyone on any device.

Leveraging Your Microsoft Investments

Presentation and Panelist Discussion on Tips for Getting True Adoption by End Users
_______________________________________

We would bet that Microsoft makes up one of the largest spends of your IT budget – but are you making the most of it? Microsoft Teams, collaboration, adoption and change management are all hot topics right now. Why? Because they are all revolutionizing the way companies work, communicate and drive productivity. Office 365 solutions, like Teams, enable your employees to achieve business outcomes – cost savings, time savings, simplifying and automating processes. However, these outcomes can only be achieved if end-users adopt and want to use the new technology…and use it as intended. People often resist change and those resistors can prevent success, but most often people resist technology when they don’t know how or when to use it. So, what are the best ways to drive successful adoption in your organization?

Check out the video below documenting an event with Interlink and one of our clients, G&J Pepsi, as we dive into Teams, Office 365 and Adoption – sharing tips on how to make the most of your Microsoft Investments.

Planning---Microsoft-Teams

This blog article was originally posted on April 22, 2019, by Robert J. Gates

Microsoft Teams is a transformational tool, with that make sure to spend some time thinking about how you should configure various security, compliance, and governance settings across the platform.

For the past several years I have had the opportunity to transform the way I work, communicate, and collaborate within my team and across various groups internally and externally. At first glance, Microsoft Teams may look like a simple chat client but there are many aspects across data, communication, and collaboration capabilities that can produce a fair amount of data.

The data generated within Microsoft Teams can provide a ton of value for an organization but for a legal, security, and compliance aspect it’s important to spend some time making sure you have Microsoft Teams configured to meet your organization’s needs.

To get started I recommend taking a look at the Microsoft Teams Governance Quick Start Guide. It’s a great place to get started in identifying and preparing your Microsoft Teams environment. As you continue your journey in deploying Microsoft Teams you will want to drill down in the various Microsoft Teams Policies focused on the various elements across the platform.
