Protecting against external threats such as malware, phishing attacks, and ransomware is essential to safeguarding your Microsoft 365 environment. M365 Copilot offers comprehensive threat protection features, including:

Ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data is critical for regulatory compliance and business continuity. M365 Copilot offers robust data protection and compliance features, including:

  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP): Prevent the unauthorized sharing of sensitive information by creating and enforcing DLP policies that monitor and protect sensitive data across Microsoft 365 apps and services.
