For businesses using Office 365 and Microsoft 365, add a setting that requires your users to log in using multi-factor authentication. When you make this change, users will be prompted to set up their phone for two-factor authentication next time they log in.

Using multi-factor authentication is one of the easiest and most effective ways to increase the security of your organization. It’s easier than it sounds – when you log in, multi-factor authentication means you’ll type a code from your phone to get access to Microsoft 365.

Enabling MFA in Office is one the steps toward best practices and it also improves your tenant’s secure score

A few weeks ago I’ve turned on Cloud App security feature in my Office 365 Subscription. I was surprised today when i started getting the alerts that there were some attempts made to login as my on my account. In less than two hours there were m15 attempts and they were all outside US and from an unknown device. First I didn’t know where it came from but when I logged on the links provided and I re-called that I did setup some policies a weeks ago.

As you can see below there were three email sent to me whenever there was an attempt made to hack into my account

Email Alerts

And here is the policy matched and alert was triggered

 

The Next Step – Review the alert

The next action was to Review the alert and investigate it. I was brought on to this page

 

What did I configure? It was not enabled by default

As I said above I created a policy while ago and based upon that now I’m getting these alerts

As you can see, in GOVERNANCE I’ve options to select the action.

Pro Tip !

Hybrid free/busy lookups fail between Exchange Server 2016 CU8 and O365

Microsoft has identified a condition where Free/Busy lookups from On-Premises to O365 in a hybrid configuration may fail.

 

Symptoms

After you install Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 8 (CU8), free/busy queries from Microsoft Office 365 users to on-premises mailboxes in hybrid environments fail if the cloud mailboxes are not archive-enabled.

Cauase

This problem occurs because of a known issue that affects OAuth connectivity in Exchange Sever 2016 CU8.

Workaround

To work around this issue, create personal archive mailboxes for each cloud mailbox.

Status

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 9 (CU9). For a supported fix for CU8, contact Microsoft Support.

Hi, I’m speaking again after the summer break. This time I’m speaking to NYC Enterprise Collaboration User Group. There is no fee to attend this event but you will need to register the event on meetup. Click the url below.

Businesses of all sizes are taking advantage of the convergence of cloud and mobile technology to enhance collaboration and productivity, accommodate different work styles, and reduce costs. Many companies now let employees work from anywhere, provide cloud-based productivity tools so those workers can communicate and collaborate more effectively, and encourage them to use their own devices for work.

In this presentation/discussion we will take a close look at the Team and how it can best fit for your day to day work.
