The Office 365 productivity software has become one of Microsoft's flagship products, providing organizations around the world with collaboration tools, office applications and an email service.

There are some security solutions on the market that are designed to increase the default protection provided by Office 365. One such product is the newly launched Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Office 365.
