Hi Everyone, Hugh Roberts here again with some info that may be of use for those wanting to test test their endpoint and improve responsiveness. Recently a few of my customers have had issues with speed and responsiveness in Outlook and other products that hit the Content Delivery Network (CDN) for Office 365 which uses GEO-DNS. Simply put, GEO-DNS means you will be connected to the most local CDN node based off your DNS query location, so an Australian customer should return an Australian CDN node.

In this article, we’ll cover the considerations for deploying FSLogix Containers to provide a one-stop location for getting up and running quickly.
I’ve written previously on deploying Office 365 Containers and securing Profile Container and Office 365 Containers. This article is an updated version of those articles in a single location with some additional information to make your deployment successful.
The past three years have flown by and I cannot believe where we are now when it comes to Data Loss Prevention (DLP).
First a bit of background – I am the Principal Consultant for security at Insentra where I have been working for six years out of ten years as a Symantec Consultant.
Microsoft Secure Score for Office 365 is a tool that has been available in preview since mid-2016 but has matured in recent times and as of February 2018 now includes a host of new features that allows IT admins to get a snapshot view of the current state of security in their Office 365 environment. This blog will show you the benefits of using the Secure Score tool regularly to leverage all the security feature sets found natively within Office 365 to secure your users and data.
Oracle is the backend for Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Oracle 11g has been the database provider for DLP since 2013 for DLP version 12.0. On 18th December 2018, Symantec released a tech note (Support for Oracle 12c SE2 with Symantec Data Loss Prevention 15 and steps for upgrading) detailing the end of life of Oracle 11g. Oracle 11g will no longer be supported as of 25 September 2018.
One of the strengths of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) has been the simplicity of the SEP client. Since Version 11, the SEP client has provided antivirus, firewall, intrusion prevention, application and device control, application whitelisting and more. This is an extremely effective combination of technologies that help to keep your endpoints secure.
I’ve recently been asked by a customer how they go about creating a new mailbox now that they’re in Office 365. It’s an interesting question because you’d assume you can start creating users and mailboxes right from the Office 365 portal.
Now while that may be true, it’s not for those of you in a Hybrid scenario. Fortunately, I have two options for you.
Hi guys, yep it’s me again…the pure awesomeness that got you through the cross forest migrations. Just when you thought your cerebrum, you know, the large part of your brain that does all the thinking, had just been taken through its paces with trying to memorise cross forest migrations, along comes me again!
Culture is an interesting topic and one that can’t be addressed in a simple how-to guide. As with most important areas of life, setting and developing an organisation’s culture requires courage to create a vision most believe is not possible, courage to keep going even when there are challenges and a deep love for the people involved even when they may not be the most lovable.
Big News! Microsoft is updating Azure Active Directory Connect (AAD Connect) to support cross-premises mailbox delegation.
