Secure Data in O365

Catalyst’s “Modern IT Blueprint” network assessment methodology is used to educate:

  • business owners
  • Executive management
  • IT professionals

We use a checklist format which enables organizations to implement IT best practices including layered network security leveraging Meraki networking equipment, Cisco Umbrella host security, and Catalyst’s approach to cloud security

Exchange Server 2016 Data loss prevention (DLP)

Data loss prevention (DLP) makes managing sensitive data in email messages easy by balancing compliance requirements without unnecessarily hindering the productivity of workers. Use any of the DLP templates that are included in Office 365, or create your own DLP rules.

Azure Rights Management

Microsoft Azure Rights Management provides a comprehensive, policy-based, enterprise solution that includes capabilities such as Do Not Forward and Company Confidential, as well as Office 365 Message Encryption. Set up complex policy restrictions easily, with just a single action.

Office 365 Information Rights Management (IRM)

Within SharePoint, IRM protection is applied to files at the list and library level. IRM limits the set of users and programs that are allowed to decrypt your encrypted files. IRM allows you to set read-only access, disable copying of text, prevent users from saving a local copy, and prevent printing to a file.

Office 365 Compliance Framework

The Office 365 Compliance Framework applies to all Office 365 commercial and education offerings, and comes with over 900 controls in the Office 365 compliance framework that are always up-to-date with industry standards.

Security Benefits

On-demand e-mail encryption

By simply typing a trigger word, such as “encrypt,” in the subject line of an email, users can easily send encrypted e-mail messages.

Corporate App Sharing

With Azure Rights Management, sharing your corporate credentials for applications is no longer needed.  By creating an “app” for sites like Twitter, LinkedIn, and 100’s of others, you can enter corporate credentials at the admin level and simply share the app with employees needing access.

Prevent data from inadvertently being shared

By creating data loss prevention rules, you can ensure your employees don’t accidently send out sensitive info like credit card numbers or SSNs.

Have complete control over your files even when they leave your environment

Through document rights, you can safely share documents outside your organization without fear they will be shared beyond your intended recipient.  Set permissions to only allow documents to be saved to your corporate network and prevent screenshotting.

Your data is always encrypted

Microsoft’s advanced security features ensure your data is encrypted while at rest and while being transported from their data centers to you.
