Microsoft Launches Cloud Security Services for Public Sector

Jeff Brody

Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) has introduced two cloud-based cybersecurity services for Office 365 GCC High customers in the government sector.

Cloud App Security and Azure Advanced Threat Protection are designed to help public sector organizations protect mission-critical information, according to a blog post published Monday on Microsoft's website.

The company offers both services as part of the Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 suite.

Microsoft Cloud App Security functions as a cloud access security broker and works to detect cyber threats via data control, visibility and analytics. Azure ATP uses on-premise signals to look into cyber threats such as malicious insiders and vulnerable identities.

The two releases follow the launch of Microsoft Defender ATP on the government market in August.
