Industry-Leading Security Expertise for a Cloud-First World

Microsoft Office 365™ Security

What is Office 365?

Microsoft® Office 365® is rapidly changing how organizations work – transforming communication into collaboration and making information available in new and exciting ways. But, with all the new opportunities this suite of software-as-a-service (SaaS) offers come the same challenges that organizations have faced for years: protecting their data, wherever it may be. The answer is not to throw yet another point product at each new app and each new IT system; that only adds complexity that can jeopardize security and increase the burden on already stretched IT teams.

Office 365 gaps

No organization - no matter how ‘cloud-first’ they aim to be - will be able to say for certainty that all their data has been completely migrated into these newly sanctioned cloud applications. Nor will all migrated data remain in the Cloud at all times. That’s not realistic. It will also be stored in non-cloud places such as on laptops, USB drives and local email folders as well as third party cloud applications, too. You will need to expand your policies and controls from your existing infrastructure to include Office 365 applications and services, too. The point is, your organization will need to do all of these things safely, while maintaining data security in the process.

 “Forcepoint is able to work seamlessly with Office 365. We don’t see any problems at all when we run the two together.”

— Benjamin Evans, IT Manager, Crediton Dairy

Hybrid Security is the right approach

Whether in the Cloud, on the road, or in the office, Forcepoint’s hybrid approach puts security close to your data in a cloud-first world. It keeps advanced attacks out and sensitive data in, across Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive and other Office 365 applications like Skype for Business. Forcepoint’s TRITON Platform powers a family of products for web, email and data security that work together to protect your critical information as your organization begins to take advantage of Office 365.

Best inbound & outbound protection, together

Forcepoint complements Office 365 with an unmatched combination of protection against outside advanced attacks and insider threats with data loss prevention (DLP) in a single solution, without complicated add-ons or “integrations”. We guard your Exchange Online email against viruses, phishing, spam, Zero-Day Attacks, malicious code buried deep inside attachments, embedded URLs that point to disreputable websites, and much more – all powered by our global Forcepoint ThreatSeeker™ Intelligence (formerly ThreatSeeker Intelligence Cloud) which analyzes over 5 billion security events per day in over 155 countries.

In addition to keeping attackers out, Forcepoint keeps your critical data in. Our industry-leading DLP technology uses sophisticated means such as data fingerprinting, machine learning, optical character recognition, “low and slow” drip theft detection, and contextual analysis to detect and block attempts to move sensitive data to places it isn’t supposed to go.

Unified security across office 365 apps – and beyond

When migrating to Office 365, many organizations start with Exchange Online and then add other apps over time. Easily and immediately enforce the same level of data security in OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business, even Yammer, whenever you need it.  As your use of Office 365 expands, Forcepoint keeps your data safe consistently, without having to recreate policies each time, learn new consoles or juggle different reporting systems.

Our protection doesn’t stop with Office 365. Forcepoint also secures your other critical enterprise cloud apps (such as Box,, and Google Apps) at the same – all without reinventing the wheel.

Security in the cloud, on the road, in the office

You never should have to choose between taking advantage of the cloud and having the security, compliance and operations that various parts of your business depend upon. Forcepoint uses a unique approach that puts security close to your data, wherever it is – in cloud apps, on roaming laptops, or in your office network.

This makes it possible for you to use on-premise servers, endpoint systems, Office 365 services, and other cloud apps together – safely and efficiently. In an increasingly distributed world, we deliver holistic protection from a single console, with a single set of policies, and a single place to monitor and manage incidents in even the most sophisticated cloud-first and hybrid IT environments.
