Lock your Office 365 users to only access services from the office

Office 365 can be made very secure service, even more secure than most non-cloud solutions. Microsoft is spending a huge amount of money improving the services of Office 365. Today I will write about the service Conditional access that is a part of Azure Active Directory(AAD) Premium. you can get AAD Premium with EMS (Enterprise Mobility + Security) or as a stand-alone product.

With Contidtional Access you can block users from accessing an Office 365 service on several conditions.

  • Block one or several applicarions
  • Block from accessing from networks(IP-addresses) outside of the Office
  • Block from accessing from devices not domain-joined.
  • Block from accessing from certain types of devices.
  • Exceptions can be made from blocking on users and groups or networks.

I imagine that this service will evolve once companies start to use Conditional access, for a user who gets blocked from SharePoint it will lock like this.

Setting up Conditional Access requires an administrator that has programming experience as it demands for computer-logical thinking of how to create the different rules.

 

This is a good way for securing the PII(Personal Identifiable Data) your company stores in the cloud. This is need for the upcoming GDPR that covers all organisations storing data on EU citizens.
