Times have changed, specifically for the worse when it comes to how easy it is to attack your data in the cloud. That is not necessarily due to the advent of cloud technologies themselves, but rather because automation is free and cheap. Think PowerShell, Python, etc., and that cloud represents a much larger attack surface than a traditional data center approach. It's time to reconsider backup in light of ransomware.
M365 - SharePoint/OneDrive Center
ENow Software's Microsoft SharePoint/OneDrive blog built by Microsoft MVPs for IT/Sys Admins.
Protecting corporate data is one of the most important tasks of our time. Microsoft 365 helps you protect your data with the Unified Labeling feature. This feature is the modern successor to Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Rights Management System (RMS).
In the past and even today, we are used to “share” documents and files by sending copies as email attachments. This behavior is often the source of end user frustration when message size limitations are enforced. Especially when size limitations for internal and external recipients are different. Users do not understand why they cannot send any file to any recipient of their choice.
Customers who have the First Release option turned on within their tenants were treated to a welcome surprise this weekend: Additional Groups features! The file repository section within Groups has been upgraded with new SharePoint document library functionality. In reviewing the updates, I found there are four distinct features that add tremendous value to the Groups value proposition.
Over the past few months, some significant improvements have been made around the external sharing functionality in Office 365. Some other very important features were introduced as well. The marketing teams at Microsoft, however, were more focused on getting the message for the new and improved OneDrive for Business (ODB) client out, so no big announcements or press focused on these sharing improvements. With that in mind, I decided to do a quick recap to put together an updated list of important improvements that everyone should at least know about.
