Microsoft Teams will now offer a feature to automatically block phishing attempts. A feature called Safe Links located in Defender for Microsoft 365 will provide URL scanning and "time-of-click verification" of URLs and links in email messages, groups, etc.
- Safe Links will be available for all Teams users.
- Safe Links policies are not enabled by default. Customers will need to create one or more policies to get the Safe Links protection in Microsoft Teams.
- You can set up a Safe Link policy in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal.
- Microsoft will also now include SMTP MTA Strict Transport Security (MTA-STS) to protect Exchange Online against downgrade and man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks.
