Very low on usable and/or verifiable details
Unfortunatly the research paper is very low on details, which exact settings where used in Office 365 (default settings tend to change for new tenants) and whether or not Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection was added. Also, the exact setup is a little bit questionable as there are multiple layers of scanning (even down to mailbox level) that scanning takes place (also after the mail landed in the mailbox).

But looking at their website, it becomes clear that Exchange Online Protection is actually a direct competitor of theirs. That is a clear conflict of interest and IMHO should've been mentioned in this article otherwise this is just an elaborate ad...

Re: Very low on usable and/or verifiable details
Agree completely! This article fails to produce any actual findings from any sources other than Microsoft's competition. Unfortunately, people will read the headline and jump to the conclusion that EOL is not a good option, which seems to be what the author is after. 

It seems Dark Reading may be chasing headlines on this one.

Re: Very low on usable and/or verifiable details
My first thought was regarding ATP and whether or not it was being used.  No email system offers anything beyond some basic features.  You will need to add an additional service to actually get ahead of the problem.
