MS Email Protection seamlessly integrates with UM’s Office 365 suite of products and services, and provides multi-tiered protection against spam, viruses, malware, and phishing attempts, including encryption services to further protect your personal information.

Microsoft Email Privacy includes email encryption, data loss prevention, etc.. For more information on Microsoft email security, please see Email Protection.
