And just like connections through OWA that are protected by OWA Guard, connections through ActiveSync can be protected through the application of Geo Blocking, Tarpitting and System Alerts.
The Geo Location filter allows for rules to be set to block connections coming from different locations based on trust levels.
Tarpit provides additional security against brute force attacks and password guessers by denying access to a user that has exceeded a set number of failed logon attempts.
Alerts can be configured to send notification emails when pre-determined logon conditions such as the total number of attempts made by user within a specified time range have been met.
With OWA Guard monitoring, analysis and protection extended to ActiveSync connections, organizations will have visibility into who is using ActiveSync to connect to Exchange, from which locations, and during what time periods. Potential threats and attacks can be dealt with and unauthorized activity can be identified.
