3 Security Flaws in Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) That Microsoft Isn’t Fixing

Thursday, September 26th at 2:00pm ET

ATP is an improvement over Microsoft default security, yet users and industry analysts affirm that it is not enough to stop evolving threats originating in email. Organizations that rely on ATP to protect SharePoint, OneDrive, and Exchange in the cloud are facing critical issues stemming from:

  • False positives and missed attacks
  • Illogical defaults and configurations
  • Cumbersome incident response tools

Michael and Don will consider these factors as they relate to the threat management experience in ATP. They’ll begin the session in the Security & Compliance Center, starting with policy implementation. Then, they’ll discuss preventing account takeover threats posed by internal emails, protecting the entire Office 365 suite, and leveraging post-delivery forensics for investigation and remediation of advanced threats.

This 40-minute webinar will review the scope and impact of these issues, and why they are unlikely to be fixed anytime soon. Before opening up the floor to questions from the audience, Michael and Don will explore potential solutions to the flaws in ATP.
