Best Practices for Managing Risk in an Office 365 World
There is a major shift in the world of enterprise technology happening right now. Many businesses are trading in their focus and investment in the LAN for the cloud, a move that brings virtually limitless data scalability, storage and accessibility – at a lower cost and with reduced complexity. In fact, enterprise adoption of numerous cloud applications, such as Microsoft Office 365™ and Salesforce, has almost doubled – and in some cases, even tripled – since 2014.
If you’re a longtime Microsoft user, the logical first step in making the journey from on-premises to the cloud is to move your email to Office 365. You aren’t alone. Office 365 is Microsoft’s fastest-growing service, ever. And a recent study reveals Office 365 has overtaken Google Apps as the top vendor of cloud-based office productivity software.
So what’s the issue? If Office 365 is the cloud email management service of choice for a growing majority of businesses, it must be pretty flawless and risk-free, right? On the surface, it seems to check all the right boxes: resilient architecture, ease-of-use, decent security features, to name a few. However, what isn’t as obvious is the potentially risky new relationship you enter into when you become an Office 365 customer. The reality is, you become fully reliant on a single vendor – a world often referred to as a monoculture.
