EOP - Exchange Online Protection
Exchange Online Protection (EOP) is the cloud-based filtering service that helps protect your organisation from spam and malware. EOP is included in all Microsoft 365 organisations with Exchange Online mailboxes.
EOP is available in the following 2 scenarios:
- In a standalone scenario: EOP provides cloud-based email security for your on-premises Exchange organisation or for any other on-premises SMTP email solution.
- In a hybrid deployment: EOP can be configured to protect your email environment and control email routing when you have a mix of on-premises and cloud mailboxes.
In these scenarios, EOP can simplify the management of your email environment and alleviate much of the burden associated with maintaining on-premises hardware and software. The rest of this topic explains how EOP works in standalone and hybrid environments.
