This July, the Zoom bug quickly got us all thinking about videoconferencing security again. Although the bug was quickly squashed, the idea that someone could send you a link that would arbitrarily add you to a conference call – thus allowing attackers to spy on you through your webcam – was unsettling beyond belief. Although Apple patched the Zoom bug out of existence before anyone could take advantage of it, the implications are worth considering.
Unlock the Hidden Value in Your Office 365 Subscription
Many companies find that they have Office 365 in their Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and are not using any of the O365 services. This can happen when Microsoft makes you a deal that is just too good to pass up and at the same time you are not ready or able to move your files or email to the cloud yet.
Just because you are not using the full O365 suite does not mean that you can’t start getting the benefits of Office 365 on your Enterprise Agreement.
Here are 5 ways that smart companies are taking advantage of their Office 365 licenses without doing a wholesale move of data to the Microsoft Cloud.
Most of us who have worked with Office 365 over the past few years have learned about Azure AD Connect (formerly known as DirSync, Windows Azure Active Directory Synchronization Tool, FIM, etc.). This tool allows us to synchronize our AD (Active Directory) accounts to our Office 365 tenant and by extension the underlying Azure AD Basic services that underpin Office 365. This provides single sign-on, security enhancements for admin accounts, reporting, and self-service password resets for online accounts.
