Office 365 ATP, Secure by Default: Do not Allow for domains that fail authentication
We see lots of cases where configuration of our protection stack has enabled malicious content to be inadvertently delivered to end users. We’re working on a few features that will help address this problem. The second phase of this is blocking domains that fail authentication. The Antispam policy allows administrators to “Allow” domains regardless of the reputation of the domain. We’re changing our policies to not honor Allow rules when the domain fails authentication. This can be resolved by either addressing the authentication concerns with the sender domain, or adding a transport rule to allow the domain.

Office 365 ATP Request Release workflow
We’ve added a way for end users to triage quarantined phish messages. We understand that managing false positives is important to ensuring email is delivered appropriately, and in the past, end users weren’t granted access to the quarantine to view messages. We’ve introduced an option to grant end users read-only access to the quarantine to view quarantined messages and request that an admin release messages to the inbox.

Access to crucial events in Advanced Audit
Crucial security- and compliance-related audit events are ones that can help you investigate possible breaches or other forensic-related investigations. The first crucial event that we’re releasing is the MailItemsAccessed mailbox auditing action. This action is triggered when mail data is accessed by mail protocols and mail clients. The MailItemsAccessed action can help investigators identify data breaches and determine the scope of messages that may have been compromised. If an attacker gained access to email messages, the MailItemsAccessed action will be triggered even if there is no explicit signal that messages were actually read (in other words, the type of access such as a bind or sync is recorded in the audit record).
