Learn how ATP Safe Links work and review ATP Safe Links protection scenarios.
- [Narrator] ATP Safe Links offers protection for users when they click on URL links within emails and Office documents. And this service works for Office 365 users on Windows, iOS, and Android devices. All Office 365 emails are processed using Exchange Online Protection. And incoming emails are scanned, and then the anti-malware and anti-phishing filters are then applied. Only when email is deemed safe, it will be delivered to the recipient's inbox. A second level of protection is then offered by ATP Safe Links.
If an Office 365 user opens their email inbox, reads an email and then clicks on a URL contained in the email, ATP Safe Links will redirect the link to a Microsoft proxy server for checking. The ATP Safe Links protection can also apply to emails sent between people within an Office 365 organization. If a link is deemed safe, the website will open for the user to view. If the link is malicious, the user is shown a warning and access to the website is denied.
In response to user feedback, the Office 365 ATP warning pages now feature a new color scheme, more details about malicious links and the ability for the user to continue to a site, despite given warnings and recommendations. To allow a user to bypass the warning, an administrator must enable this option in the Safe Links policy. Safe Links can be enabled to provide protection for Office 365 applications. Safe Links will scan and check URLs within Office 365 ProPlus documents, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio on Windows, and Office 365 ProPlus on Mac, as well as Word/Excel/PowerPoint apps on iOS and Android devices.
If a user clicks a link in Office Online, such as Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online, and OneNote Online then the ATP Safe Links protection will apply. The user needs to click the link for the checks to be carried out. These actions will be accordant to the Safe Links policies that exist. Note that at the time of recording this video, the desktop version of OneNote is not supported, and nor is Office 2016, Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal and the consumer version of Office Online.
