Sharing information outside your organisation is an everyday part of doing business. We look at how Office 365 makes external sharing as safe and secure as possible.
It might seem counterintuitive, but instant sharing has made it easier than ever to protect your most sensitive business data.
In the bad old days of sharing documents via USB sticks, burned CD-Rs, and casually-forwarded attachments, data security was virtually non-existent. Beyond sticking a password on your document, you had very few measures to protect it; once data was free of your organisation, it was out of your control. And in the case of staff sharing sensitive material unintentionally – or, worse, maliciously – you were on your own.
Data Loss Prevention
The cloud has changed that for the better. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems – such as the one built into enterprise versions of Office 365 – automatically identify and protect sensitive data, such as credit card details, National Insurance numbers and passport information. Try to share something sensitive, and, depending on policy, you’ll receive a gentle reminder, be stopped in your tracks, or even have the attempt silently logged and flagged up to an administrator.

Visualising data on maps is a powerful way of communicating information, but it’s always been difficult to achieve. Now Power BI gives everyone the chance to go places with their data.
One of the most powerful ways to visualise data is spatially. Used appropriately, map-based data visualisations can make otherwise-invisible connections obvious, bringing your data to life in a very immediate and visually-compelling way.
This kind of visualisation has long been difficult to create, needing expensive and complex software. Fortunately, Power BI now offers two easy-to-use map visualisations that bring this capability within anyone’s reach.
Here you’ll find insight on CompanyNet’s work, what’s happening in enterprise software, and the future of the workplace. It’s written by a variety of CompanyNet staff. If you’d like to talk to us about anything you see here, just drop us a line.
