ACA Aponix Launches Microsoft Office 365 Security Assessment

March 12, 2019

In the past two years, we have seen a steady increase in attacks against users of Microsoft® Office 365®. In response, we're pleased to announce our new service designed to help assess the security of your company’s Microsoft Office 365 environment.

Microsoft has invested significantly in the security of Office 365. They have built a complex suite of administration portals and enabled PowerShell command-line scripting to rapidly automate security and other configuration tasks. These security configuration elements can dramatically impact the security of your tenant. Settings can be easily confused or overlooked. Misconfigurations can significantly impact the security and regulatory posture of your technological environment, and we have repeatedly seen this exploited. Office 365 is an extension of your network perimeter, and misconfiguration can easily expose highly sensitive data.

How We Help

ACA’s team of experienced consultants can review how your company uses Office 365, whether the application’s controls align with your company’s policies, and if your company is leveraging all of the platform’s security features. Our service includes:

  • Data leakage control review
  • Identity and access control review
  • Review of compliance enablement
  • Incident response and recovery readiness review
  • Evaluation of Office 365 value attainment

What Our Clients Are Saying

We recently performed a Microsoft Office 365 security assessment for Parthenon Capital and here's what they had to say: "The Office 365 review was extremely thorough, and it provided practical guidance on how to secure our environment. The team was able to help identify unsanctioned access mechanisms and other security best practices that will be meaningful for Parthenon. I was very impressed with the quality of the review and expertise of the team," said David Richey, Director of IT Technology at Parthenon Capital.
