5:00 – 6:00 Enhancing Security in Microsoft Office 365 & at the Endpoint

Scott Messick, Senior Sales Engineer, ClearSwift

Melvin Montalvo, USA Enterprise Account Manager


Many organizations across various verticals have either moved or are strongly considering a move to Office 365. Yet, these systems represent a substantial threat of data loss due to hackers, phishing and insider threats – and the threat landscape is continually evolving. This presentation will examine the current threat landscape and Secure Email Gateway’s ability to substantially enhance Office 365 security via an integrated approach. Traditional endpoint tools incorporate threat protection but regulations and business requirements have raised awareness to tighten the Endpoint by enhancing DLP controls. Today, advanced security and data loss prevention (DLP) features are needed to combat information borne threats across email as well as the endpoint.
