March has been a difficult month for everyone with Exchange Servers. The HAFNIUM attack has some damage estimates exceeding 100,000 servers. And while the initial attack goal was data theft (exfiltration), there are now reports that the attack has shifted to ransomware.
We’ve received many questions on how Messageware Exchange Guard (EPG) can help with the March zero-day attack and I thought these might be interesting for you:
With Messageware EPG (www.messageware.com/epg) there are many critical security features and post-incident assistance like:
- Automatic monitoring of re-use of stolen credentials
- Easy analytics access to both successful and unsuccessful logins
- Dynamic blocking of IPs being used for both High and Low volume attacks
- Access to geographic and user-agent data at a single report click
Customers also use EPG to monitor the system post-incident for unusual volumes of activity, successful logins from suspicious locations, and high password failure volumes against key user accounts. Reports like “Rollup Logins by Username” can be used in conjunction with spikes in Weekly and Daily Activity graphs to assist in your security awareness.
If you would like to see a live EPG web demo or have a short discussion on Exchange Security, book a 15 -minute timeslot with Gregg, our enterprise security account manager:
