Advanced Threat Protection
Secure your mailboxes against advanced threats
New malware campaigns are being launched every day, and Office 365 has a solution to help protect your email against them. With Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your mailboxes against new, sophisticated attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, you’ll have a layer of security to protect against the unintended consequences of user actions. Such actions often thwart other security measures by providing malware — such as Crypto Locker — with direct access to your network environment.
A few months ago, we opened a seemingly harmless email that had a link to a virus. It stopped us in our tracks. Sean from SyncraTec was able to get everything back for us, but the wasted time is something that cannot be salvaged. I wish we would have had (this software) then.

Protect against unsafe attachments
With Safe Attachments, you can prevent malicious attachments from impacting your messaging environment, even if their signatures are not known. All suspicious content goes through a real-time behavioral malware analysis that uses machine learning techniques to evaluate the content for suspicious activity. Unsafe attachments are sandboxed in a detonation chamber before being sent to recipients. The advantage is a malware free and cleaner inbox with better zero-day attack protection.

Protect your environment when users click malicious links
Exchange Online Protection provides protection against malicious links by scanning content. Safe Links expands on this by protecting your environment when users click a link. While the content is being scanned, the URLs are rewritten to go through Office 365. The URLs are examined in real time, at the time a user clicks them. If a link is unsafe, the user is warned not to visit the site or informed that the site has been blocked. Reporting is available, so administrators can track which users clicked a link and when they clicked it.
Get rich reporting and track links in messages
Gain critical insights into who is being targeted in your organization and the category of attacks you are facing. Reporting and message trace allow you to investigate messages that have been blocked due to unknown viruses or malware, while URL trace capability allows you to track individual malicious links in the messages that have been clicked.
