Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based service. Information stored in the cloud can be accessed by web-based computing services; access from anywhere by most devices. Information storage, computation and software are located and managed remotely. Because the infrastructure is located online, you can access it anywhere from a desktop, laptop or mobile phone with internet access.

Information placed in Microsoft Office 365 is safe and secure. The data is encrypted in transit and at rest, so it has the same security and reliability of a server located on-campus.
