Microsoft recently released its Office 365 enhancements for June and we’re excited to share them with you today. Microsoft allows businesses to meet their compliance requirements and easily manage their security policies.
With the focus on Microsoft Cloud App Security, Outlook, PowerPoint and more, here is an in-depth look at some of Microsoft’s June 2019 updates.
Keep Your Organisation Secure with Shadow IT
Gain some visibility into your apps and services running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform with Shadow IT. You can see which users are accessing these apps, transactions, their IP address, and exactly how much traffic is transmitted through these apps and services.
Improve Your Organisation’s Identity Security
Now generally available, Identity Secure Score helps organisations discover various opportunities which will help improve your organisation’s identity. Recommendations and guidance will help security administrators implement these recommendations.
Manage Access of Your Organisation’s Resources
Azure AD Conditional Access policies are made available this month for Microsoft 365 Business. It’s designed for both small and medium-sized business subscribers. With these policies, your organisation can have complete control over its Office 365 environments and how resources are accessed by employees.
Information barriers in Microsoft Teams
Want to avoid conflicts of interest with information barriers in Microsoft Teams? You are now able to restrict communications between users in Microsoft Teams with information barriers.
This feature is helpful when your organisation needs to adhere to ethical wall requirements such as preventing the research teams and sales department from communicating.
Meet Data Residency Requirements with Yammer
Organisations can now meet local data residency requirements with the Yammer feature. All-new Office 365 customers associated with a tenant in the EU can make use of this feature.
The minimum seat requirement for Multi-Geo Capabilities has reduced from 2,500 seats to 500. This new update allows more organisations to address their industry-specific and organisational data residency requirements.
Do you want to improve your workflow? Microsoft made sure to add new features to streamline your collaboration and document creation times.
Design Company-branded templates in PowerPoint
Your organisation can now make use of company-branded presentations with Designer in PowerPoint. Company-branded templates are available to organisations to help them create on-brand presentations, no hassle.
Inking Features in Outlook
The inking feature available in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote is now available in Outlook. Organisations are now able to use their digital-pen or fingers to make notes with Inking. Easily add notes or annotations to photos directly in your emails.
Azure AD Password Length Update
You can now set a password for Azure AD with a maximum character length of 256. This is a great update to ensure your passwords aren’t easily hacked.
Those are just a few of the new features launched by Microsoft this month. Increased security and improved workflows are just some of the great updates in Microsoft 365.
