Safe Files for Microsoft Office 365

We have implemented a feature for Microsoft Office 365 called Safe Attachments which uses Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) services to scan SharePoint, OneDrive and Microsoft Teams for malicious attachments using the common file formats such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and PDF.

When a possible malicious file is found it is marked as such in the file library with a red shield icon

This is screenshot of a blocked file. It's indicated by a red shield logo with an x in it.

The blocked file will still be listed in the document library on all devices; however, people will not be able to open, copy, move, or share the file. The file can still be downloaded or deleted.

We recommend deleting any malicious files.

A blocked file can be reviewed by the IT Office 365 Administrators for release once they are informed of a locked file via the standard ticket system.
