Security and productivity are top priorities for every person, business and organization that uses Office 365. Yet, finding the right balance between the two—one that provides maximum security without compromising productivity and vice versa—can be a challenge. At Microsoft, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain that balance.

We recently announced that we are extending Azure Rights Management to the Word, Excel and PowerPoint mobile apps for Android, providing full Office Mobile support for information rights management (IRM). As a result, you can now open, read and review rights-protected emails and Office documents on any device—whether it runs Windows, Mac, iOS or Android. We are also working on new features and enhancements to make IRM even better for Office 365 subscribers in the future.

For enterprises, the Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise E5 plan provides Advanced Threat Protection and Advanced Security Management to help organizations defend against malware, viruses and other attacks. In addition, we recently shared two new resources to help our enterprise customers take a systematic approach to security and information protection.

To continue increasing productivity for our subscribers, we’ve made several new improvements to Office 365. We added intelligent services to our Office apps, such as Researcher and Editor in Word. Researcher is a new service that helps you find and incorporate reliable sources and content in fewer steps, and Editor is a digital writing assistant that provides advanced proofing and editing. To help you work smarter on any device, we also extended two email efficiency features—Focused Inbox and @mentions—to our Outlook apps on every platform. Finally, we announced the rollout of modern SharePoint lists to SharePoint Online, along with one-click integration of PowerApps and Microsoft Flow, which gives you powerful new collaboration capabilities.

Office 365 provides outstanding productivity and exceptional security—all in one easy-to-use service.
