Here is a list of features and improvements made to Office 365 security and compliance news for June 2016.
- Gain enhanced visibility and control with Office 365 Advanced Security Management—The cloud offers many security benefits to organizations but also raises new security considerations.

We are thrilled to introduce Office 365 Advanced Security Management, a new set of capabilities—powered by Microsoft Cloud App Security—to give you greater visibility and control over your Office 365 environment.

These new eDiscovery enhancements further strengthen the rich set of eDiscovery capabilities already present in Office 365 to help you quickly investigate and meet legal and regulatory obligations from the Security and Compliance Center.
