Along with being one of the largest employers in the greater Seattle area, Microsoft has also helped create a wide network of local vendors and suppliers — all of which are required to meet compliance standards. These standards are included in the Microsoft Supplier Security and Privacy Assurance (SSPA) Program in the form of the Microsoft Supplier Data Protection Requirements (DPR), which EXP has experience helping clients with. There are 56 requirements in all, and many can be bewildering to non-technical readers. Companies must confirm compliance with each one, and any noncompliance can put the company in danger of losing its vendor status — a major concern to say the least.
EXP Technical is proud to have been the primary IT partner for Stratolaunch over the last 2 years. 4/13/2019 was an exciting day and the EXP staff were onsite at the Mission control center in Mojave to support the inaugural flight! Congratulations to Stratolaunch and kudos to all the EXP team who worked on the account!
In my first post on this topic, I highlighted some excellent yet overlooked apps and add-ins for Office 365. Since there are so many, here’s another subjective selection of underappreciated gems that can help you be more productive.
Some of Office 365’s features are well known: email in the cloud, always up-to-date Office suite software, anti-spam and anti-phishing filters, and OneDrive storage to name a few of the most popular. But who will sing the praises of its lesser-known features? I will!Below is a brief overview of some underappreciated gems that can make your life easier.
Stratolaunch Systems Corporation is a space transportation venture launched in 2011 by Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen. The company’s goal is to make space launch more reliable, affordable, and accessible.
In April 2017, an affiliate company, Allen’s Vulcan Aerospace formally separated from Vulcan, Inc. and was merged into Stratolaunch Systems Corporation. The combined company needed to separate its systems from Vulcan for regulatory compliance reasons. This meant creating an entirely new IT infrastructure robust and secure enough to comply with the strictest security standards enforced for U.S. defense contractors — all in an extremely short time frame.
Stratolaunch chose EXP Technical to tackle this daunting task.
The purpose of this article is to highlight other useful, less familiar applications included with your Office 365 subscription, and to illustrate how they can help your business in a variety of ways.
