WithSecure Presents Advanced Protection for Microsoft Teams

Securing online collaboration tools has become more important for modern businesses, especially given the hybrid nature of doing things, whether internally or externally. WithSecure (formerly known as F-Secure Business) has added advanced protection capabilities to its cloud-native security platform, WithSecure Elements, designed specifically to help the hybrid workforce – and external collaborators – meet safely via Microsoft Teams on any device.

Microsoft Teams is the most widely used online meeting and cloud-based collaboration service, making for an enticing attack vector not covered by traditional legacy security approaches. The recent WithSecure Pulse survey highlighted that safeguarding the hybrid workforce was the number one security outcome for organizations. However, the update also will encompass protection for external collaboration and content sharing.

“Meetings with external parties over Teams are quite common and conducted via a vast array of devices, so people joining with mobile devices may pass malicious content without even knowing it. This is why we designed a seamlessly integrated solution to protect users on Microsoft Teams and other Microsoft 365 collaboration services regardless of the device they use,” said Leszek Tasiemski, WithSecure Head of Product Management.

The Microsoft Teams protection completes WithSecure Elements Collaboration Protection solution, which also covers Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. Its advanced capabilities protect against previously unknown threats by using WithSecure’s protection and sandboxing technology.

As a result, malicious content such as viruses, trojans, and ransomware are detected, blocked and removed. Organizations can get the complete Microsoft 365 collaboration protection into use in minutes, and it’s part of the unified cloud-native WithSecure Elements security platform. It also comes with pick-and-choose modules for endpoint protection, endpoint detection and response, vulnerability management, and collaboration protection.

The advanced Microsoft Teams protection is included in all WithSecure Elements Collaboration Protection subscriptions. More information is available at https://www.withsecure.com/en/expertise/resources/teams-protection-completes-the-cyber-puzzle
