WithSecure supports the hybrid workforce with advanced protection for Microsoft Teams

WithSecure (formerly known as F-Secure Business) is adding new advanced protection capabilities to its cloud-native security platform, WithSecure Elements, specifically to help the hybrid workforce meet safely via Microsoft Teams on any device. The new update will also 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 new Microsoft Teams protection joins existing coverage for 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 accurately detected, blocked, and removed promptly.

Organizations can get the complete Microsoft 365 collaboration protection into use in just minutes, and it’s part of the unified cloud-native WithSecure Elements security platform, according to the vendor.

It also comes with pick-and-choose modules for endpoint protection, endpoint detection and response, vulnerability management, and collaboration protection.

The new advanced Microsoft Teams protection is automatically included in all WithSecure Elements Collaboration Protection subscriptions.
