Did you know: Microsoft is bringing the the power of Microsoft Office Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to the desktop

Did you know: Microsoft is bringing the the power of Microsoft Office Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to the desktop to verify that documents are safe at the endpoint with safe documents starting in mid-February and completing by the end of February.

How does this affect me?

Safe Documents automatically checks documents against known risks and threat profiles before allowing them to open. Users are not asked to decide on their own whether a document can be trusted; they can simply focus on the work to be done. This seamless connection between the desktop and the cloud both simplifies the user workflow and helps to keep the network more secure.

This integration with ATP provides admins with advanced visibility and response capabilities such as

– Providing alerts, logs, and confirmation that a potential attack was contained, and
– Providing visibility into similar threats across the enterprise.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

– At release, Safe Documents capabilities will ship default Off.
– After you enable Smart Documents for your tenant, you should update your user training and documentation as appropriate.
