What Are Modern Office’s Email Security Features?
Modern Office’s email security features (formally called Exchange Online Protection) provide protection across Microsoft’s global network of data centers. This layer of protection helps make messaging environment administration easy and secure.
Here are Exchange Online Protection’s main features for email security.
Constant Threat Elimination
With Modern Office’s email security measures, you will eliminate threats before they reach your corporate firewall. This defense is multi-layered, with real-time anti-spam and multi-engine anti-malware protection to ensure that nothing sneaks onto your servers.
Security Administration Made Simple
Exchange Online Protection also allows you to manage your security from a web-based interface called the Exchange Administration Center. This means you don’t have to use multiple programs or applications. You can see everything you need in one interface.
Content Filtering Capabilities
With active content, connection, and policy-based filters available, you can control what gets through and what doesn’t. This feature also allows compliance with any corporate policies and government regulations to which your business adheres.
Easy to Get Started
There is no hardware or software to install, manage, or maintain, meaning you don’t have to wait long to get your security up and running. It also minimizes your upfront investment, which is crucial right now for businesses looking to reduce or eliminate high spending.
Advanced IP Security Measures
Exchange Online Protection also protects your company’s IP integrity by utilizing separate outbound delivery pools for high-risk emails. This way, any potential malware or spam threats won’t find their way back to your IP address.
Fast and Accurate Reporting
With the capabilities for real-time reporting and message tracing, Exchange Online Protection can provide email environment insights by reviewing the status of any message that the service processes. This means you can see email security results fast.
This email protection service offers IT-level phone support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—all at no additional cost. This way, you can deal with issues whenever they arise.
