Multi-factor Authentication (MFA): provides an additional security layer through additional required authentication methods such as text messages, call or notification through a mobile app. 

  • A free version of Azure MFA is included in Office 365 for business and enterprise subscriptions. Learn more here.

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP): helps protect your organization from attacks by scanning email attachments for malware and scanning URL links for malicious sites.

  • ATP is included in Office 365 E5 and Microsoft 365 E5 plans. ATP can be added on to the Office 365 plans listed here.

Advanced Security Management Console (now Cloud App Security): gives you insight into suspicious activity in Office 365 so you can investigate situations that are potentially problematic and, if needed, take action to address security issues. 

  • Office 365 Cloud App Security is available in Office 365 E5 and Microsoft 365 E5 and can be purchased as an add-on.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP): included in all Office 365 plans, prevents sensitive information from leaking outside your organization by applying policies and rules.
