Improve compliance with Office 365 E5 plan

Organizations own the data they keep in the cloud and they need to know how it is being handled at all times.

Microsoft is the industry leader in cloud compliance for enterprise customers. With the Office 365 E5 plan, advanced compliance is integrated into the service, so organizations can meet their unique requirements using a single cloud service.

Microsoft recognizes that organizations want control over access to content stored in cloud services. To maximize data security and privacy for Office 365 customers, Microsoft has engineered the service to require nearly zero interaction with customer content by Microsoft employees. Access is obtained through a rigorous access control technology called Customer Lockbox for Office 365, which helps you meet compliance obligations for explicit data access authorization. In the rare instance when a Microsoft service engineer needs access to your data, access control is extended to you so that you grant final approval for access. Actions taken are logged and accessible to you so that they can be audited.

Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery simplifies the eDiscovery process, reducing the volume of data by finding near-duplicate files, reconstructing email threads and identifying key themes and data relationships. Leveraging machine learning and predictive coding, it helps compliance administrators intelligently explore and analyze large, unstructured datasets and quickly zero in on what’s relevant to save time and money.

Watch this video to see how the Office 365 E5 plan helps provide the transparency, control and advanced compliance features needed to meet customer requirements. You can also download this infographic to see how Office 365 helps organizations stay ahead of the threats of tomorrow.
