Amid the flood of news from Microsoft's Ignite conference in Florida this week, Redmond dropped word of several new features and additions to its cloud services aimed at protecting user data.

Office 365 will be getting additional security protections through Application Guard, the sandboxing tool Microsoft debuted with its Edge browser. The idea is that Application Guard will isolate documents, preventing malicious code from escaping the app and damaging the rest of the system. The feature is currently in limited preview.

Posted as a heads up for those who use 365 for any development purposes (I suspect many of us use word processing of some kind in the process of creating web pages) and that SaaS has continuing growth pains in the security sense. While in the formative stage at the moment, keep an eye out for finals as the LAST thing anyone wants is a malicious actor getting involved!

Good grief, a word processor?

I've used an ASCII editor NoteTab Pro for nearly 20 years, it has everything you need - especially the ability to "Search and Replace" across an entire hard drive. I've used that feature for many, many different things.

No connection beyond being a very satisfied customer.

There is/was a FREE light version without some features.

I compose/write in a word processor ... I CODE with a text editor, Notepad ++, which has all the features needed to address sitewide etc ...

Different strokes for different folks. :)

That said, I am NOT an Office 365 user as I don't believe in SaaS and my Word 2002 still works perfectly fine. :)

SaaS removes one's ability to control the content, storage, and protection of one's work, and for me that is a big caveat. Others might not feel the same way, or are more trusting of corporations than I am.

YMMV
