Free Microsoft 365 Security Assessment: 2 Weeks Assessment


Know where your business stands against security threats with the complete visibility of your Microsoft 365 Security world at zero cost.


In the new era of cloud transformation and rising security incidents, Microsoft 365 is the most accepted and trusted cloud data-host service for enterprises. For the same reason, it is the highly targeted cloud platform for the threat actors as well.

If not configured appropriately for your specific use case, the Microsoft 365 platform can allow some bad actors to take advantage of and steal your data.

Since security is not just limited to technology, it also includes your business processes, controls, policies, standards, and education programs. Some bad actors nowadays go very far and steal your data or impersonate you by social engineering as well. It is not uncommon to see an email from the manager asking the accounts team to clear an invoice ASAP, which can be spoofed or impersonated.

Compromising Microsoft 365 tenants opens the gateway for attackers to remotely access sensitive cloud data, without breaching the corporate perimeter. These threat actors can breach Microsoft 365 tenants by exploiting:
  • Weak or legacy authentication mechanisms
  • Security controls that have not been optimally configured
  • Accounts with privileged access levels
  • Accounts with weak passwords or those that do not require multifactor authentication.
