Office 365 now snoops on users with a new Advanced Security Management tool
Enterprises using Microsoft’s Office 365 have a new security product that they can use to better lock down their organizations—for a price.
The company introduced a new Advanced Security Management service on Wednesday that gives companies a trio of tools aimed at helping detect security threats, provide granular controls and let IT administrators track if people in their organization are using unauthorized services.
It’s another part of Microsoft’s push to lure businesses over to its subscription-based productivity suite. By providing more advanced security capabilities, Microsoft may be able to convince security-conscious businesses to buy into Office 365, rather than avoid a subscription or choose one of Office’s competitors like Google Apps for Work.
