Today, cybersecurity commands attention from business leaders across the enterprise. In a 2016 survey, more than 70% of global security technology decision makers said they want to improve security monitoring capabilities, improve advance threat intelligence capabilities, and leverage cloud-based or -managed security services.1 That makes security a big opportunity for Microsoft partners.

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) seamlessly integrates with Exchange Online Protection to address the complexity of today’s threat landscape.

With an incremental cost of just a few dollars per user, ATP is easy to justify. It can be deployed quickly and delivers immediate benefits: Customers understand the value the first time they see ATP isolate an unsafe attachment or block a malicious link to avert potential disaster in real time.

ATP also produces a quick win for partners, and opens the door to create managed security services that provide recurring revenue.

— Ankur Kothari, Founder and President, Olive + Goose
