Microsoft announces Office 365 Advanced Security Management


Microsoft today announced Office 365 Advanced Security Management, a new set of features powered by Microsoft Cloud App Security to give organizations greater visibility and control over their Office 365 environment.

Advanced Security Management includes the following:

  • Threat detection—Helps you identify high-risk and abnormal usage, and security incidents.
  • Enhanced control—Shapes your Office 365 environment leveraging granular controls and security policies.
  • Discovery and insights—Get enhanced visibility into your Office 365 usage and shadow IT without installing an end point agent.

Advanced Security Management will be available as part of Office 365 E5 and is also available as an add-on to other Office 365 enterprise plans for US $3 per user, per month. The threat detection and activity policy creation features are rolling out worldwide starting today. The ability to view an application’s permissions into Office 365 and the application discovery dashboard will be available by the end of the third quarter of 2016.
