Data is the lifeblood of a digital enterprise. As more and more companies continue their digital transformation, ways of working are changing with more and more employees now working remotely and how people exchange information changing. Businesses
are recognising the need to ensure their workplace technology keeps pace and continues to protect the business regardless of the location of its employees and not just from within a secure corporate network.
Microsoft can help to ensure your employee’s devices and data are safe from threats wherever they work by protecting your remote workplace.
Control how sensitive documents or apps are viewed remotely
As BYOD becomes more popular, organisations incur the risk that personal devices might bring security vulnerabilities and exploits with them when employees and other users connect to the cloud. When devices are not patched with updated antivirus signatures, they might be running malware that can infect the network at the first opportunity.
Utilising Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) in tandem with Microsoft Intune to implement Conditional Access will provide you with the necessary tools to protect your employee’s identity and in turn your business.
Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM). It enables you to control access through policies dependent on the user’s location and access settings providing granular control over Office 365 data on mobile devices. Conditional access helps to ensure that access to company data or applications is only granted after Microsoft validates device health and compliance status, in addition to authorised user credentials.

Help your employees identify themselves
As organisations continue to move applications and data to cloud services, the effectiveness of the network boundary as a security control is diminished. Today, identity authentication and Authorisation become the primary security control. The verification when the user authenticates to a corporate application or service, regardless of the user’s location, network, or device.
Why is password-based protection such a concern? From a security perspective, attackers are becoming more sophisticated and successful at compromising users’ password-based credentials, primarily through phishing attacks. Industry analysts indicate that 90% of security breaches start from a successful phishing campaign. In addition, the high number of passwords required for daily Internet usage results in 24% of password reuse meaning that one compromised password can provide access to multiple resources.
