Office 365 Enterprise Plan users will be able to connect to SharePoint services using secure https SSL-encrypted connections. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol provides a cryptographic system for the secure transmission of documents over the internet. So that's all good then? Well, not quite. Although enterprise users will get this protection, professional and small business plan users will not get SSL-encrypted defences. For most small businesses - and professionals for that matter - there is always a need at some point to work with sensitive documentation, even if it is nothing more than the company accounts, which, in this instance, will not be protected.
