Submit your security score and be in to win a $50 Bonfire Card*

Microsoft 365 Business Premium secures personal data and provides threat protection, as well as device management features to help you protect your customers from online threats and unauthorised access.

To be even more secure, you can leverage the Microsoft Secure Score to measure and assess the state of your customers' security posture:

  • Report on the current state of an organisation's security posture across identity, devices, information, apps, and infrastructure
  • Improve their security posture by providing discoverability, visibility, guidance, and control
  • Compare with benchmarks and establish key performance indicators

How it works

You are given points for configuring recommended security features, performing security-related tasks (such as viewing reports), or addressing the improvement action with a third-party application or software.

Some improvement actions only give points when fully completed, and some give partial points if they are completed for some devices or users.

Products included in Secure Score

Currently there are recommendations for Office 365 (including SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Information Protection), Azure AD, and Cloud App Security.

Recommendations for other security products, like Azure ATP and Microsoft Defender ATP, are coming soon.

The recommendations will not cover all the attack surfaces associated with each product, but they are a good baseline.

You can also mark the improvement actions as covered by a third party.

How improvement actions are scored

Most are scored in a binary fashion — if you implement the improvement action, like create a new policy or turn on a specific setting, you get 100% of the points.

For other improvement actions, points are given as a percentage of the total configuration.
