We are excited to announce that LMS365 passed validation in the Microsoft 365 App Compliance Program and is now a Microsoft 365 Certified App. This certification acknowledges that LMS365 has reached the highest level of security and compliance required by Microsoft.

“We have an ambition to be the trusted SaaS learning platform by leveraging Microsoft Cloud technologies and investing in security and compliance. We are proud to be awarded the Microsoft 365 Certification after Microsoft’s intensive security review.

Already being a Microsoft Preferred Solution, the next obvious step for LMS365 is to seek the certification recently launched within the Compliance Program by Microsoft. Still being a new program, LMS365 is proud to already receive this certification, which is yet another validation of our presence in the Microsoft ecosystem.

With this accomplishment, LMS365 customers and partners can be confident that data and privacy are adequately secured and protected when adding LMS365 to the Microsoft ecosystem. LMS365 has collaborated closely with Microsoft throughout the years and this certification strengthens our partnership even further.

“By earning the Microsoft 365 App Certification, Microsoft is assuring customers that LMS365 follows secure practices for data handling and app security.”

A team of qualified analysts completed a comprehensive assessment on LMS365’s security and compliance procedures. During the certification process, apps undergo a complete and yearly review across four areas:

  • Application Security includes a GraphAPI Permission Validation to confirm that the app does not request overly permissive permissions. This step also involves an External Connectivity Check and Application Security Testing.
  • Operational Security/Secure Deployment ensures alignment between the app’s supporting infrastructure and deployment processes with security best practices. This includes Firewalls, Malware Protection, Vulnerability Scanning, Patch Management, Event Logging & Monitoring, Change Control & Risk Management.
  • Data Handling Security and Privacy covers Data in Transit & Data in Rest, Data Retention and Disposal, Data Access Management and GDPR.
  • Optional External Compliance Frameworks ensures that there is evidence that the frameworks include ISO/IEC 27001 specification, PCI DSS and SOC 2.

The Microsoft 365 App Certification demonstrates that an app conforms to the strict guidelines put forth by Microsoft.

 

“It’s fantastic that we are now able to document that LMS365 is compatible with Microsoft technologies and compliant with cloud app security best practices supported by Microsoft.”
