Office 365 Now Provides Active Monitoring for Ransomware

Office 365 security ransomware monitoring

Microsoft recently announced a new feature in Office 365 that takes a lot of the worry out of ransomware. If you store your files on OneDrive, not only can you restore them up to 30 days to a point before infection (OneDrive has done that for a while now), but now Microsoft will send you a notice when they’ve detected ransomware and suggest the point to safely restore to.

This update in Office 365 also includes tools to keep your email private, like password-encrypted share links and the ability to disallow forwarding of emails, and advanced link checking in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to protect against viruses and phishing scams.
