Why A Microsoft 365 Security assessment is Important?

Updated: Jun 24, 2022

When making decisions about your company's future, the functions and performance of your information technology can be a daunting task and one that is hard to be objective. Microsoft is the worldwide leader in business and collaboration tools, and you chose Microsoft to support your organization’s most critical systems and applications. It is important to ensure that your Microsoft 365 environment has been properly deployed and secured. An outside perspective can help ensure that your systems are secure, and to give you peace of mind in the Microsoft cloud.

Benefits of a Microsoft 365 Assessment

You have an in-house IT person or staff, and most likely a Microsoft partner helped you implement the Microsoft 365 Cloud services. How do you know that things were implemented properly? It makes sense to bring in an expert like Virtual Innovation to assess your systems, and to make sure that your implementation meets your company’s risk appetite. Virtual Innovation (VI) is an expert in the IT industry and offers solutions based on our years of experience. VI has been deploying Microsoft 365 solutions for many years. There is much that you can learn from an assessment. The results of the assessment can be used to validate security posture, and to build confidence in this powerful communication and collaboration system.

  • Ensure that conditional access policies and strong authentication are properly implemented.

  • Strengthen your organizations' ability to defend against data breach and compromised accounts.

  • Protect against data leakage.

  • Understand logging and monitoring options.

  • Take advantage of reporting tools for regulatory compliance.

  • Ensure that the systems are doing what you think they are doing.
