Protecting Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 is a powerful suite of solutions, but careful consideration must be given to how you protect your users from email attacks and data loss.

We highly recommend that you consider the addition of email security and 365 backup to fully protect your most valuable data

365 Backup

There is a common myth that Microsoft 365 includes data backup; it does not.

Whilst Microsoft 365 is highly resilient against downtime, it does not provide backup to counteract against human error, malicious insiders, illegitimate file deletion, file corruption or platform breach.

SITOC offer an optional Microsoft 365 backup service to protect your most valuable data, available for just £2.95 per user each month.

Powered by Spanning, this service provides Comprehensive protection, automation and a granular, search-based item restore facility.

Using secure API connect for near-instant deployment and protection of data, this backup will protect email, files (OneDrive & SharePoint), calendar and contacts for all users, with an unlimited storage size and retention period.

Email security

It has never been more important to get on top of email security. While Microsoft 365 provides base levels of protection against spam and malware, it can be improved on with services that counteract more modern-day threats such as phishing and impersonation attempts.

Powered by Mimecast, SITOC can deliver a service which better protects your organisation from email-based attacks. For £2.85 per user each month, Mimecast helps to protect against spam, malware, phishing, impersonation, malicious attachments & URL’s. But it does not stop there, Mimecast also includes leak prevention to protect your most valuable data from careless users, compromised accounts, or malicious employees.

Phishing Protection
Phishing emails are sent en-masse, typically impersonating large companies in the hopes that a recipient may divulge sensitive information or click a malicious link. Mimecast scans all mail in real-time, searching for key indicators that suggest an email may be fraudulent.

Impersonation Protection
Attackers use social engineering techniques to impersonate a known contact such as a colleague or trusted supplier. This can be achieved by sending from a domain which is similar to one that is known to you, or by intercepting an injecting content into an existing email conversation.

Data Leak Protection
Mimecast also protects against accidental leaks by scanning messages for sensitive information.
