Running a Secure Service – Exchange Online

When speaking with my customers about Exchange Online and Office 365 one topic is always on the top of their mind;  security and privacy of their data.  Customers want to know how their data will be protected and will it be more secure moving to the Microsoft cloud than remaining on premises (hint: the answer is almost always yes).

Yesterday one of the TechNet blogs called “Ask Perry” dove directly into the security aspect of Exchange Online and answered some of the most frequently asked questions such as:

  • Is Encryption the silver bullet to provide a secure and private service?
  • What are the physical containers and logical boundaries to reduce risk in the service?
  • How does the service employ the concept of “functional boundaries”?
  • How does the concept of “searchable encryption” work with the service?
  • Does the concept of a customer controlled encryption key really reduce risk in a service?
  • What features does the service provide enabling to reduce a customer risk?

To learn the answers to these questions, jump on over and watch the Geek Out with Perry video covering the topic of Running a Secure Service.
