Microsoft Teams Security & Compliance
Microsoft Teams Lets You Collaborate Securely
Microsoft Teams is the central hub of the Microsoft 365 (Office 365) suite of tools. It brings all the other products together and allows full team collaboration and opens several lines of communication from a single platform. Microsoft Teams security features are always at the forefront of what they do - which means you can secure and protect your data while harnessing collaboration opportunities.
Microsoft Teams Allows Business Collaboration as Well as Limiting the Security Threats
Remote working has become the new normal, and it doesn’t look like this is going to change and may be the new way forward. It has presented many challenges for businesses in terms of team working, accessing documents and even routing phone calls and Microsoft Teams is a simple and effective solution to these challenges.
However, new business collaboration is going to introduce the increased risk of data breaches.
For example: Your business is successfully working in Microsoft Teams – it is exactly what you need. You create new cross-functional teams and share documents for collaboration, and everyone is increasingly productive. You invite external contractors and freelancers to join channels, to discuss work and create sharing links so anyone can access the files when they need them.
This is all very good, however from an IT perspective this increased collaboration brings a new and unpredictable level of risk being introduced into your network.
