Introducing new advanced security and compliance offerings for Microsoft 365

Get in touch

Every organisation needs to ensure their information is secure from increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats. Managing security in a changing workplace can be challenging as the number and severity of threats continue to rise.

Microsoft 365 is a complete, intelligent solution that offers organisations new ways to protect and monitor the security of their data, identities, applications and devices. The ‘built-in, not bolt-on’ approach allows organisations to detect and respond to threats using four key components:

Identity & Access

Protect users’ identities and control access to valuable resources with Azure Active Directory and Multi-Factor Authenticator.


Use Azure Information Protection and BitLocker to ensure documents and emails are only seen by authorised personnel.


Protect against advanced threats and recover quickly when attacked by harnessing Azure Identity Protection, Azure ATP, Windows Defender ATP and O365 ATP.


Products such as Intune, Microsoft Identity Manager and Cloud App Security give visibility and control over security tools.

Microsoft 365 Security and Compliance Offerings

The Microsoft 365 security and compliance offerings are designed to provide organisations with simpler purchase, deployment, and adoption of these solutions. The Microsoft 365 Security package brings together security value across Office 365, Windows 10, and EMS in a single offering.

The Microsoft 365 Compliance package is designed to help IT teams perform ongoing risk assessments across Microsoft Cloud services, automatically protect and govern sensitive data throughout its lifecycle, and efficiently respond to regulatory requests leveraging intelligence.
