A few months back, we did a short two-article introduction to Advanced Security Management (ASM), a stripped-down version of the Cloud App Security suite, tailored to the needs of Office 365 administrators.

Multi-factor authentication has been available, at least for users with administrator roles assigned, in Office 365 since June 2013.

In a series of articles here on ENow’s blog over the past few months, we covered a wide variety of security and compliance-related features in Office 365.

It only seems logical to end the series by reviewing the newest product, one that promises to take care of all your auditing needs. In this article we will take a look at the Advanced Security Management feature and introduce you to the functionalities it brings.
