At its core, Office 365 operates some of the most secure data centers in the world, adhering to Microsoft’s internally-developed Security Development Lifecycle. Many of the best practices were developed over decades of Microsoft’s enterprise software development efforts, and since the late 1990’s, this has included a host of online services.

The Office 365 platform provides enterprise-grade user and administrator controls, giving organizations the ability to manage and scale their environments with the assurance that all physical, logical, and data security layers adhere to industry best practices (or better).

Microsoft makes continuous improvements to the security of the Office 365 platform, from port and perimeter scanning to regular auditing of operator/administrator activities and access. If you’re interested in keeping up with what Microsoft is doing to keep your data secure, we recommend you bookmark the Office 365 Roadmap site and visit the site often for the latest updates.
