Office 365 in Local Government: Enhancing Built-in Protection with Third-Party Security

A White Paper by Trend Micro

The UK Government is undergoing a digital Transformation and Microsoft Office 365 is a popular platform for UK Public Sector Organisations looking to modernise, with its revolutionary cloud services. However, security concerns still remain barriers to adoption to the state of the art services for some public sector IT buyers. Trend Micro’s white paper looks at what is driving organisations to enhance this environment with additional security layers, sandboxing for zero-day malware and advanced compliance controls.

Let Trend Micro shed more light on Office 365 security: where Microsoft helps out, useful guidance from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and where third-party experts like Trend Micro can be brought in to enhance protection.
