The Road to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance with Microsoft and Interlink

The Road to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance with Microsoft and Interlink

In the ever-changing digital age, one of the most important things is data protection. In an effort to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU), the EU has decided to implement a new law called General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR for short. This regulation will start being enforced on May 25, 2018 and will impact almost every business that has employees, customers or potential customers in Europe.

Are you looking to add a tighter level of security to your environment? Do you want to stay secure and productive on your favorite apps and devices?

In this on-demand event, Microsoft and Interlink Cloud Advisors show you the powerful new capabilities of Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security and how it ensures your critical company data is protected.

During this online event, see what’s new through a live demo of EMS’s E5 functionality and how it allows you to:

  • Lockdown your valuable data: Automatically classify information to better protect intellectual property with Azure Information Protection. Lock it down so, your competitors can see it and your existing sales people can’t take it with them!
  • Secure the cloud: Drive security policies and reporting across Microsoft and non-Microsoft cloud services with Cloud App Security. Your data is being dispersed all over the global by using various SAAS services. Take back control and visibility – we’ll show you how!
  • Control Administrator Account Access: Ensure that powerful rights are utilized appropriately. Privileged Identity Management gives the ability to grant access to admins only when required and limited to the resources needed.
  • Use Identity Protection: Ensure that users are accessing your environment following the policies that are required for your business. Automatically identify risky scenarios, take appropriate actions, and provide reporting.

In addition, we provide an in-depth licensing overview and comparison of EMS E5 vs. EMS E3 features and functionality. You’ll also see how you can leverage Microsoft paid assessments and proof of concepts to see if EMS E5 is the right solution for your business!

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. Both were acquired by Microsoft through the acquisition of Adallom and give users the capability to create security policies and receive alerts when those policies are breeched. In addition, each of the products give users the ability to set manual or automation remediation. Focused on Office 365, Advanced Security Management (ASM) does that work automatically.

In contrast, Cloud App Security covers a wide range of SaaS-based applications - including competitor’s services like Box, Salesforce, and Amazon Web Services. Cloud App Security also adds more functionality including its own data loss prevention, ability to automatically add new applications, and integration with Security Information Event Management (SIEM) products. 

The below chart provides additional details on when each product includes:
