Windows 7: Enhanced control over third-party apps now available in Office 365

Enhanced control over third-party apps now available in Office 365

Do you have users connecting third-party applications to Office 365?

Many organizations allow users to connect apps to Office 365 without IT intervention to help them be more productive. The challenge is that it reduces the visibility and control that IT has over what apps are doing with the data. Today, weíre announcing App Permissions as part of Office 365 Advanced Security Management to help with that problem.

Letís walk through a scenario:

When someone attempts to connect an application with Office 365, they are prompted to approve the permissions the application needs as seen in the image below.

Permissions prompt that users see when a third-party app requires permissions to Office 365 on behalf of the user.

But people donít always read the permissions closely, or they may not realize when an app is not in compliance with their organizationís policies. App Permissions provides information to IT about which applications in their network have access to Office 365 data, what permissions they have and which users granted these apps access to their Office 365 accounts.

Based on this information, IT admins can choose to approve the app or revoke its access to Office 365. If they choose to revoke permissions to the app, it will no longer be able to access the information for any of the users in the Office 365 tenant. App Permissions also makes it easy for IT admins to notify users who have installed the application that is going to be banned.

Banning an application from Office 365.

This new capability, along with the alerting and Productivity App Discovery features, gives IT a great solution to help get the visibility and control they are looking for in Office 365. To learn more about Advanced Security Management, watch this session from Microsoft Ignite 2016 or try it out yourself by signing up for a trial of Office 365 E5.
