What is localbridge.exe?

localbridge.exe is a legitimate Microsoft process associated with Microsoft Office 365. Apparently, it is needed for Microsoft’s Office to work properly. We’ve spent quite a lot of time trying to find this executable’s exactly purpose and we couldn’t find anything anywhere, even in Microsoft’s own forums! Usually a bridge is a piece of software that’s used to unite two different networks, so perhaps this “local bridge” unites Microsoft Office with all local and Internet network activity.
