One of the best features of Office 365 is that the Microsoft team is continuously updating, tweaking, and upgrading their products. Because of the continuous updates, you can rest easy knowing that your business will meet its compliance requirements, manage its security policies, and reach more audiences with your content.
We’re going to take an in-depth look at some of the April 2019 updates.
Manage Sensitive Data
Your organisation will have more control over data privacy with the new compliance capabilities. The Compliance Manager allows the user to create their custom risk assessments of any application.
The Advanced Message Encryption feature allows admins to revoke and expire encrypted emails. Also, the Office 365 Security and Compliance centre has a new data investigation capability which enables the user to search for high-risk content, such as phishing emails, etc.
Improve Security Posture with Azure AD Password Protection
Azure AD Password Protection helps users avoid weak passwords. This will potentially lower the risk of your passwords being compromised by password spray attacks.
Security Policies Tailored to your Organisation
There’s a new service in town and it’s the Security Policy Advisor. It uses behaviour-based analysis to help your IT admins determine the risks and benefits of applying the tailored policy. It will also allow them to monitor the policy’s health as time goes by.
Deploying policies only requires a click of a button, and they can easily be updated or rolled back.
Connect Inside and Outside your Organisation
Securely connect and engage with big groups outside your organisation, including vendors, partners, contract workers, and customers. With Kaizala, you’re using a phone number-based identity, which makes the onboarding process more straightforward and creates a user-friendly mobile experience.
Multi-language Support for Editor
With Editor in PowerPoint, you’ll receive suggestions on your word choice and grammar regardless of the languages you’ve included in your slides. With Editor, multiple languages are also supported on the same slide. This is perfect for lesson plans, global presentations, and inclusive learning. This way, everyone no matter their language can be part of the learning experience.
Faster Editing with Mini Toolbar in OneNote
Now you can edit content faster with the new Mini toolbar added in OneNote. You can highlight the text, and the toolbar will appear above it with all the editing tools available. This will save you some time because you don’t have to go to the ribbon at the top of the screen to pick a tool to use.
