Pricol has announced the deployment of Microsoft Office 365 in order to protect its IP and sensitive data. The software will enable Pricol to restructure its policies for access rights to sensitive information. The deployment guarantees that the design and specifications of products under development are accessible only to authorized users and customers thereby creating a secure R&D environment. Along with this, 365’s collaboration services via Lync are helping Pricol employees and customers to stay connected across countries and save on their time, travel and cost.
Speaking about the deployment, Pravin Kumar Sadavisam, Group Chief Information Technology Officer (CITO), Pricol said, “Our design, specifications and features represent our intellectual property. Each time we share our submissions with a customer, Office 365 ensures only authorized people are able to access the files. Earlier our product designs carried a risk of falling into our competitor’s hands. Office 365 has addressed our concerns around reliability and security of our critical IP.”
The Microsoft Office 365 will enable solving critical business issues at an affordable price. Its collaboration and communication capabilities allow the organizations to engage in a better manner with their customers, suppliers and partners globally. Talking about this, Tyler Bryson, General Manager- Marketing & Operations, Microsoft India explains: “Every organization, irrespective of their size, needs an extra layer of protection for its critical data and that is where the security features of Office 365 are significant. By encrypting and applying intelligent policies, Office 365 secures data at all points – on premise, in the cloud or in transit. We are happy that Office 365 has been successful in providing Pricol the multi-tiered levels of security they needed.”
The Office 365 security is continuously strengthened via a strong Security Development Lifecycle process. Microsoft’s construct for security, compliance and privacy for Office 365 has two equally important dimensions- service-level capabilities and customer controls that enables users to customize their Office 365 environment as per their needs.
