Office 365 Enterprise Security with CASB Solution
With the rapid growth of technology and infrastructure, the productivity of an organization is what helps it grow and scale its businesses to new heights. To achieve the best possible productivity levels, Microsoft released its own suite of productivity apps called Microsoft Office 365, which was built for enterprises to take off to the next level and seamlessly manage data all over the company. Due to the flexible and versatile nature of all Office 365 apps, they have been adopted as the standard requirements for businesses and have even acquired a significant portion within the education domain as well.

In this blog, we will show you how you can achieve context-specific protection for Microsoft Office 365 security and also obtain deep visibility for individual Office 365 apps for complete security with our CASB security solution (Cloud Access Security Broker).

Working of miniOrange CASB for Microsoft Office 365.
Let’s see how Microsoft Office 365 CASB solution security works with an example:
Let’s say a company is using Microsoft 365 apps for daily information workflow. The company has enabled IP restriction with a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and has whitelisted all the IP address ranges for the company network. Suppose there are 2 users: Tony and Joe in the organization. Tony is on the company network and Joe is not on the company network.
A CASB solution can be configured to allow or block users with Microsoft 365 restrictions.
Since Tony is on the company network, the CASB solution will whitelist his IP address. Hence, he will be authorized to use the Microsoft 365 apps.
Since Joe is not on the company network, the CASB solution will not whitelist his IP address. Hence, he will not be authorized to access any of the Microsoft 365 apps.
