Office 365 Security
New Innovations Announced at Microsoft Ignite 2016

I had the privilege of attending the Microsoft Ignite 2016 conference in Atlanta, GA this past September.  It was of course full of great sessions, demos and announcements.  I was impressed at how many of those sessions focused on the security capabilities of the Office 365 platform. I left with the feeling that, through these sessions, announcements, demos and innovations, that Microsoft is clearly demonstrating their commitment and continued investment in providing a secure environment for our corporate data in Office 365.  They've robust feature set that enables both them as operators of the service, and us as customers and users of the service, to protect our sensitive data in Office 365.

That said, the security of our data, even within the Microsoft cloud, is always a shared responsibility. Microsoft provides the most secure cloud platform available and with that robust feature set, they give customers the ability to control how information is secured, accessed, shared, governed and monitored.  Its still up to us as customers to make efficient use of those controls in ways that protect our businesses and keep our users productive.

As we saw at Ignite, Microsoft has continued to innovate providing us ever more robust security controls for Office 365.  In this blog we're going to look at some of the great new security features that were demo'ed and revealed that Microsoft Ignite.  At the end of this blog, I've also included the slides from today's webinar.
