Office 365 Exchange Online Protection
Why is Advanced Threat Protection with Office 365 Important?
The advanced threats of 2015 spread by one of two main vectors: as email attachments, or dropped by exploit kits on users visiting sites with infected ad streams. Most cyber-criminal operations follow the money. They look for the easiest way to steal something of value. Getting thru standard email is easy, real easy.
Small businesses can be more at risk because they often have less advanced computer defenses. Some 80% of small and medium-size businesses don’t use data protection. Less than half use email security, according to Intel Security. Many of the small businesses come to us using personal email with little to no security like aol or yahoo mail.
DPC is using the power of Microsoft Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection through Office 365 to secure small business email systems. With Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your mailboxes against new attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, it provides better protection.
