OneDrive Files Restore, ransomware detection, and more rolling out to Office 365

The new protection capabilities include email encryption, ransomware detection and recovery and files restore features. But ransomware can also spread to your files stored in the cloud-and that's what Microsoft's new OneDrive protections are created to address. This allows you to restore your OneDrive to the state it was in at any previous point in time, within the last 30 days.

Email encryption in Outlook.com offers an added layer of protection and ensures end-to-end encryption of your email. The company also said it will use its automated threat-detection systems to figure out when the ransomware began infecting those files and alert you via your phone that an infection has taken place.

The new Office 365 can likewise recognize ransomware assaults and enable clients to reestablish their OneDrive to a point before documents were bargained, so they don't need to submit to cybercriminal requests. If an attack is detected, you will get an alert via email, mobile, or a desktop notification. Now, you can require people with access to a shared link to enter a password before being able to access the file or folder it links to.

Lastly for OneDrive, Microsoft is also adding password protected sharing links. Recipients can view the encrypted email in Outlook.com, the Outlook for iOS or Android app, or the Windows Mail app just like any other message.

Finally, Microsoft is promising real-time link checking in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, which will be available later on this year. The attachments on these emails are encrypted as well, so the recipient can't even download it and send it.
