Incident response teams should have a clear understanding of the steps involved in remediating unauthorized access events.  These steps should be clear and concise to avoid confusion and delayed containment.

Difference Between Microsoft’s Cloud App Security and Office 365 Advanced Security Management

Difference Between Microsoft’s Cloud App Security and Office 365 Advanced Security Management

Cloud App Security and Office 365 Advanced Security Management are very comparable Microsoft products, and many of our clients are confused over the difference between them.
