As more remote work from home happens, your collaboration tools need more scrutiny. A popular choice for instant messaging and video conferencing is Microsoft’s Teams, and securing this application will be a challenge. There have been Teams-specific exploits observed, for example. And even if Teams isn’t targeted, it could fall victim to general DDoS or ransomware attacks, which would be an issue if you depend on Teams for internal communications post-attack. And while Microsoft has published numerous suggestions on how to better secure Teams, the process is vexing and error-prone.
You can read my published analysis for CSOonline here. I also compare how Teams security stacks up with Slack. Avanan, pictured above, has versions for both.
