Office 365 Security and Active Directory — From On Premises to the Cloud

On Demand
  • Recorded Date:Jun. 14, 2017
  • Event:On Demand

Organizations are adopting Office 365 and other cloud platforms at a rapid pace. Microsoft announced that Office 365 adoption is up 37 percent year over year. Vendors are making it easy to consume the cloud, but the reality is it’s hard to manage — and even harder to secure.

Not only are you expanding your IT infrastructure outside of your span of control, but now you also have to evaluate how to monitor, report, manage, automate, comply, govern, secure and so on. You’ve doubled your infrastructure’s footprint (both on premises and now in the cloud) — but you’ve also increased your security risk.

Cloud security is an adoption barrier for organizations moving to the cloud as customers are concerned with data loss, leakage and are also looking for ways to ensure their new environment is secure.

In this on-demand webcast, security experts Holger Schulze from the Information Security Group and Matthew Vinton, Quest, explore why Active Directory (AD) plays a critical part in your cloud environment. They also dive into the security protocols you have in place — or don’t have in place — for your on-premises AD and how they ultimately determine how secure your cloud data truly is.
