Recorded April 17, 2019 (45 min)

With over 155 million subscribers, Office 365 is  an important and capable platform that can satisfy a range of corporate requirements.  It frequently provides “good enough” capability in many areas but does not necessarily provide the depth of specialized solutions for customers with needs and requirements beyond the basics.

  • What is new/changes being made to Office 365
  • Key trends driving the need for advanced email security
