Identify a point of contact for security information

Determine an individual or group within your organization to act as a point of contact if Microsoft detects a threat—so you can respond with urgency to investigate and remedy security concerns.

Safeguard your organization against attacks

Explore tools and processes that can help you defend against frequent attacks and improve your customers’ security.

Enforce multifactor authentication (MFA) for all users

Mandate MFA as a security default to help maintain your access to important infrastructure—protecting you and your customers’ resources from credentials compromise.

Remove inactive delegated administration privileges (DAP)

Address and remove DAP connections that are no longer in use or have not been used in the past 60 days—helping to fortify your customers’ security and protect their administrative access.

Transition active DAP connections to GDAP

Accommodate customers with regulatory privacy or security requirements by using granular delegated admin privileges (GDAP) connections—so customers can partition administrative access.

Secure your endpoints to help protect against cyberattacks

Invest in platforms that prevent, detect, investigate, and respond to advanced threats.

Use Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint works with a wide range of components to stop threats, scale defenses, and evolve your security with essential endpoint protection.

Enforce device compliance with Conditional Access

Create a Conditional Access policy to ensure that all devices accessing an organization’s resources comply with security standards—such as requiring device encryption or a PIN to unlock.

Continually invest in each aspect of your security

Regularly update your knowledge and tools to better monitor your—and your customers’—ecosystem so you can remain safe in a shifting security landscape.

Detect unauthorized activities with Azure fraud detection

Expose fraudulent activities by configuring your security notifications and monitoring customer transactions.
