4 ways Dynamics 365 keeps your data safe

Given the increasing change and development of technology solutions within the past few years, it’s no surprise that organizations of all sizes are gravitating towards cloud solutions.  Microsoft Dynamics 365 has given businesses the ability to access information easier, minimize growth costs and cut infrastructure budgets in half.  However, even though the advantages are plenty, people are still asking the question – How secure is the cloud?

Here are a few key points to keep in mind:

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is hosted in local data centres.

Since 2016, Dynamics 365 services have been available in Canada.  This means that Canadian customers have the choice of storing their data in Canadian based datacenters which abide by cloud service compliance guidelines.

Role-Based Security

Microsoft Dynamics 365 includes a set of predefined security roles.  Security privileges are applied to an entire class of users instead of individual users.  For example, if a person is assigned a role as a user and the security privileges say they cannot read accounts, then any attempt for ANY user to read accounts will fail.  In order for them to read accounts they would need to be put in another class with higher security privileges.

Effectively manages threats

Microsoft Dynamics 365 has built-in protection features to help defend your data against malware. Microsoft Antimalware is built for the cloud and helps identify and remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It also provides real-time protection, on-demand scanning, basic configuration management, and monitoring.

Secure data and apps

Dynamics 365 uses encryption to protect your data. Connections established between customers and Microsoft datacenters are encrypted, and all public endpoints are secured using industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS).

Microsoft has always taken security and compliance seriously. With Dynamics 365, businesses have even more control over data security and compliance with built-in privacy, transparency, and refined user controls making it an even more attractive solution.
