    Hi guys,

    I wouldn’t mind getting other peoples opinions on the following if you have a spare 5 minutes – cloud based computing and security. The fact that you can log in from any device and access your SharePoint online or Office 365 email – does anyone consider this as a potential security flaw?

    It would seem Microsoft offer some protection with SharePoint online scanning files up to 25MB (what happens to files larger than this?) and there are some security features with email. But given the fact you can potentially log in from any computer which has protection or not – do we see this as a security risk or not?

    Thanks as always

    I wouldn’t call it a flaw but it is definitely a security consideration. There are MDM solutions that will handle authentication and compliance and Sharepoint/Office 365 can be put behind those. Azure AD can integrate with many MDM solutions. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-platform/mobile-device-management
