The significant increase in mobile data usage, cloud adoption, digitization, and personal devices in the enterprise brings new opportunities and security risks. Microsoft uses many Microsoft 365 security technologies to help ensure a productive and secure environment for the company and our customers. Together, these Microsoft 365 security tools enable us to strengthen authentication, employ conditional access, better protect data, and automate threat protection—all while streamlining our security management through a tightly integrated set of tools.
Creating a development culture that meets business goals and fulfills customer needs can be difficult in an ever-changing marketplace. Microsoft combined development teams and modern engineering practices to co-develop a product that could both be sold to customers and meet the internal business needs of Microsoft. Co-development practices created new ways to share business knowledge and drive digital transformation within the organization, which led to a more useful and full-featured product.
Enterprises are constantly challenged to better protect their data wherever it resides: on-premises and in the cloud. At Microsoft, we’ve adopted the Azure Information Protection scanner as our primary solution to automatically protect on-premises data stores. By combining the scanner with Office 365 Data Loss Prevention and Azure Information Protection, we’re providing end-to-end discovery, custom labeling, and automated protection of all sensitive data, irrespective of when it was created or where it is stored—even in PDFs and RMS-encrypted files.
Integrating LinkedIn into Microsoft challenged the IT teams of both companies. LinkedIn’s independence and unique character had to be preserved, and its 14,000 employees needed to be empowered to take advantage of Office 365 and other Microsoft offerings. Two priorities for the IT teams were making LinkedIn employees feel welcomed and ensuring they could quickly find and do everything needed. This case study shares highlights and lessons learned from the LinkedIn integration.

Migrating to Azure improved security, scalability, performance, and reliability of this business-critical application.
