Security group Office 365

Hi,

In Exchange 2007, I used to create a security group and add AD users to the group to manage their access permission. For example, Created a staff security group and add all staff accounts to the group. It was easy to manage access permissions as I did not have to add an individual account to a mailbox permission.

Is it possible via Office 365? I noticed the security group means a bit different from active directory security group in the office 365.

You can use Mail-enabled security groups for that purpose, both the Exchange Online Admin Center and the Office 365 Admin Center expose the functionality to create them.
