Lumen21 announces three new compliance offerings for Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise.

ORANGE, CA. March 3, 2016 - Lumen21, an award-winning global technology firm specializing in compliance and technology, announced today the availability of three new compliance offerings for Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise: Managed Compliance Support Service, Secure File Hub™, and PhishPro™ plugins.

Managed Compliant Office 365 Enterprise - Lumen21 has introduced a service that enables them to work with customers looking to implement their Microsoft Office 365 environment, taking into account their compliance requirements, by utilizing Lumen21 compliance templates for Healthcare, Financial Services, and Retail. Mapping against these templates then allows Lumen21 to properly configure the needed components in the given client’s Office 365 environment and track, monitor, and manage that environment on an on-going basis for compliance purposes. For those clients that so choose or have the means themselves to provide the needed monitoring and management portion of the Office 365 support, Lumen21 has a shared responsibility model to collaborate with the client in its required compliance reporting and monitoring efforts.

Secure File Hub™ - Lumen21’s plugin for Office 365 enables organizations to securely share files and folders which contain sensitive information, safely and simply, to and from computers and mobile devices, even over public connections. Customers will have control over who can access files, as well as track and monitor what actions are being taken on the shared files at all times. Secure File Hub™ is built with advanced security features, meeting HIPAA/HITECH, FISMA, PCI, FINRA, and other industry regulations. Secure File Hub™ seamlessly works with OneDrive for Business or Azure Blob Storage and uses existing Office 365 subscriptions. Secure File Hub™ service is governed by an executed compliance and confidentiality agreements, including a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) for healthcare customers.

PhishPro™ - Lumen21’s plugin for Microsoft Outlook 2016 is a multi-faceted solution that can raise awareness about phishing emails, provide an effective solution for eliminating an organization’s inefficiency for gathering, organizing, and analyzing end user reports of suspicious emails, and significantly prevent possible scenarios that could result in a cyberattack. PhishPro™ is built with the highest level of security and is comprised of three modules – Tracker, Campaign, and Dashboard. The Tracker module allows end users to quickly report possible phishing emails with the click of the PhishPro Tracker icon installed on the Outlook ribbon, while the Campaign module uses simulated phishing campaigns to test their ability to recognize and report phishing threats.

“Last year we took to the market a HITRUST vetted Infrastructure-as-a-Service Compliant Cloud Computing offering that has been very well received. We now seek to support clients that are also seeking to use the cloud by using Office 365. Compliance and regulatory needs add to the things a given client must concern themselves with when implementing cloud technology, above and beyond the compliance and security capabilities that the cloud provider provides as part of their offering,” said Eduardo Don Jr., President of Lumen21. “Lumen21 is ideally suited to use its compliance and security expertise to assist clients looking to implement Office 365 while adhering to their specific regulatory requirements and enhancing their security and compliance. Our goal is to continue to lead the way in providing a comprehensive set of tools and services that enable an organization to enhance their posture in the area of IT security as well as compliance, without compromising the use of cloud technology. Lumen21, cloud, and compliance are becoming synonymous in the industry.”

“Providing solutions that support the evolving security, privacy, and compliance needs of the health industry is paramount,” said Leslie Sistla, Chief Information Security Officer, Worldwide Health, Microsoft. “Lumen21’s new offerings for Office 365 Enterprise will allow customers across the care continuum to take advantage of our productivity tools while adhering to specific regulatory requirements.”
