With the Milestones app, you can seamlessly track projects across your company, and with Bulletins, you can quickly publish news articles to the rest of your company.

There’s been a significant increase in identity-based attacks. As IT leaders rely more heavily on identity in their security strategies, cybercriminals have increased their efforts on this threat vector. And with the shift to remote work in response to COVID-19, we’ve seen a notable number of pandemic-related phishing attacks. IT leaders need more visibility and protection. With the increase in threats, security professionals and admins are being overwhelmed with alerts. IT leaders are looking for more effective ways to manage alerts and better tools to proactively prevent attackers from being able to compromise accounts. Preventing identity compromise is more critical than ever. As IT leaders evolve their security strategies, people increasingly working remotely, and the number of identity-based attacks are rising, it’s vital for organizations to implement real-time, AI-based protections that prevent identity compromise.

Teams not only enables you to meet, chat, call, and collaborate with your team, but it also serves as a platform that brings together the apps and workflows that help you get your work done. In fact, users utilizing third-party apps and custom-built solutions in Teams every month grew over seven times year-over-year. We also know that a workplace platform is only as good as the ecosystem of relevant and useful applications and custom integrations available. Because of this, we continue to invest in Teams platform capabilities to enable and empower our partners to continue to build new, innovative solutions. When our partners succeed, we succeed, and together we bring more value to our customers. The beauty and strength of Microsoft Teams is that it’s designed as a surface where partners can interweave capabilities to create innovative, productivity-enhancing solutions. With the broadest canvas to build upon—from bots, messaging extensions, cards, and apps across chat and meetings to name a few—partners have created amazing solutions that reach people where they are and fit the needs of customers in this digital, post-pandemic business environment. We are proud to have such a strong and thriving ecosystem of partners who are continuously pushing the bounds of innovation with the solutions they’ve built on Microsoft Teams. From the more than 800 Teams apps built by independent software vendors (ISVs) and published in our store to the thousands of systems integrators (SIs) who are developing custom Teams solutions—our partners are growing their business and finding immense value from building on Teams. Most importantly, our customers are benefitting from all of these solutions that increase employee productivity and enhance collaboration.

With the launch of iOS 14, you can now add widgets to your home screen. We’re excited to announce that To Do widgets for iOS 14 are now available!

The widget is available in two sizes: the medium widget shows a list of your tasks, while the large widget shows a list of your tasks along with due dates and other details. By default, the Your Tasks widget shows the Tasks list. In the My Day widget, you can view the first task on your My Day list.

At Microsoft Ignite 2020, we announced the preview of support for Linux and Windows PowerShell Core in Exchange Online management using EXO V2 Module. We are delighted to announce general availability of this feature along with the support for macOS. Officially supported distributions of Linux are Ubuntu versions 18.04 and 20.04 (native installations – not WSL). For macOS, supported versions are Mojave, Catalina & Big Sur. Read more in the detailed release notes here. In addition to cross platform support, we added support for longer session timeouts in interactive scripting scenarios. The module is now more secure with real time policy and security enforcement in all interactive cases with the help of Continuous Access Evaluation provided by Azure AD. Version 2.0.4 of EXO V2 module is available at PowerShell Gallery and we recommend all Exchange Admins start using this version of the module.

The Microsoft identity team recently launched a series explaining why they love passwordless authentication (and why you should too!).The series kicked off with posts on FIDO and NIST compliance. Alex Weinert continues the series with this post speaking to biometric authentication. Rather than having to memorize a password (you can’t) or security answers (quick! What was your 6th grade teacher’s best friend’s pet’s maiden name when you had your first crush?), you can use what’s always with you – you! Biometrics let you use your face, fingerprint, or even heartbeat on some devices. Biometrics also provide terrific accessibility benefits, making it possible to sign in when typing in a password is not viable. It is really exciting to think about the technology in use by people or in situations where secure digital identity was previously out of reach. With biometrics, once a device is “bound”, almost any gesture can be used to authenticate. Think about the implications for folks who interact with technology in non-conventional ways, or whose job requirements make manual interactions impossible (e.g. a surgeon after scrubbing in) – with NFC and FIDO2, a tap of the token can sign you in securely. | Related: 10 Reasons to Love Passwordless #4: Secure your digital estate, while securing your bottom line
