OFFICE 365

DEPLOYMENTS

CONSIDERATIONS AND TIPS

DEPLOYMENT STRATEGIES
Start with one feature for many users; e.g. SharePoint Online, Application Single Sign-On
Migrate Exchange and Skype For Business/Microsoft Teams by business unit.
Controls generally remain
“on-premises” until halfway point
Windows 10 and legacy Office application compatibility
HYBRID CONSIDERATIONS
Set user expectations early for response time changes
NETWORK VISIBILITY
Express Route can alleviate some load, but Microsoft support for this scenario remains variable
Microsoft network rate throttling – inbound and variable between users
ARCHIVING AND eDISCOVERY
Legal teams do not find Office 365 eDiscovery to be a viable choice.  Leveraging existing capabilities
Office 365 archiving is robust, but does not cover non Microsoft platforms
Unlimited storage is becoming a negative for legal and compliance teams
DATA CLASSIFICATION PROTECTION
EMAIL PROTECTION
Convergence of ATP and Security & Compliance Center still a “work in progress”
Exchange Online delivery challenges
DEVICE MANAGEMENT
Broad adoption of Intune device and application management
Intune application management limited by application support for required
Some companies offering a mix of existing solutions (e.g. AirWatch) for company owned and Intune for BYO
DATA LOSS PREVENTION
CASB often used to provide third party DLP coverage; e.g. Box.com
SINGLE SIGN-ON
SSO to other cloud providers; e.g. AWS, GCP, Workday
