Why is third-party security necessary for Office 365?image745

Most cloud service providers, including Microsoft, follow a Shared Responsibility Model outlining which areas the cloud providers or the users themselves are responsible for securing.

As a simplified summary, security 'OF' the cloud - like infrastructure vulnerabilities - is the responsibility of your provider, and security IN the cloud - like advanced email security - is the responsibility of the user, leading organisations to seek out third-part solutions to look after these areas.

Add a Secure, Tamper-Proof Archive to Office 365

Your business email is often the best record of important communication. Capture2-1There are often legal requirements and business reasons to ensure that important emails are retained in a tamper-proof archive and easily searched. Barracuda Essentials integrates with Office 365 to create a powerful yet extremely intuitive email retention and e-discovery system.

The standard Office 365 “in-place” approach to long-term email retention can be complex and expensive to operate. Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 follows the accepted “best practice” approach for compliance by archiving an original copy of every email into a secure and immutable cloud separately from Office 365 for long term retention and preservation.
