    How to strengthen Office 365 security compliance for email

    IT teams in many organizations today are looking to strengthen Office 365 security compliance capabilities to meet evolving and expanding regulatory requirements.

    As email continues to play a vital role in business communications and operations, regulations in a broad range of industries are aimed at ensuring email security to protect businesses as well as their employees, partners and customers. In addition to security-related requirements, organizations must also comply with regulations concerning email retention and the ability to produce evidentiary-quality records in to response to legal hold requests.

    While Microsoft Office 365 is a powerful productivity suite, Office 365 security compliance tools may not provide the multilayered defense that most organizations want to adopt to fend off a growing universe of threats. That's why, when seeking to augment Office 365 security compliance capabilities, more organizations worldwide today turn to Mimecast.
