Research has revealed organisations using Microsoft 365 experience more breaches, with more severe impacts.

Egress’ Outbound Email: Microsoft 365’s Security Blind Spot report has revealed that 85% of organisations using Microsoft 365 have suffered email data breaches in the last 12 months.

Remote working has exacerbated the risk of an email data breach even more for Microsoft users, with 67% of IT leaders reporting an increase in data breaches due to working from home, versus just 32% of IT leaders whose organisations aren’t using Microsoft 365. Looking to the future, 76% of IT leaders report that remote and hybrid working will make it harder to prevent email data loss from Microsoft 365, compared to 40% of those not using it.

The study, independently conducted by Arlington Research on behalf of Egress, interviewed 500 IT leaders and 3,000 remote-working employees in the US and UK across vertical sectors including financial services, healthcare and legal.
