Guardian Digital Offers Crucial Microsoft Exchange Email Security Insights

Jun 9, 2024 -- N.J. Guardian Digital provides invaluable guidance to organizations seeking to fortify their email security. The firm recognizes the recent cybersecurity threats targeting Microsoft exchange email servers and focuses on various ideas and insights.

The tumultuous events of 2020 and the initial months of 2021 have underscored the vulnerability inherent in Microsoft Exchange servers and emphasized the critical need for supplementary email protection measures.

Brittany Day, Director Of Communications Guardian Digital, stated, "We are delighted to offer information about cloud email security solutions for our customers."

The gravity of the situation became alarmingly evident on March 2, 2021, when Microsoft issued emergency security updates to address four critical vulnerabilities in Exchange Server versions 2013 through 2019. Exploited by multiple Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups and cyber espionage units, these vulnerabilities enabled unauthorized access to email communications and complete remote control over the systems of over 30,000 organizations across the United States.

The heightened risks associated with Exchange servers extend beyond this recent incident. In February 2020, Microsoft released a patch to address a critical security flaw affecting numerous Exchange versions dating back to 2010.

Despite the patch, approximately 350,000 Exchange servers exposed to the Internet remained vulnerable. Subsequently, threat actors began exploiting this vulnerability, prompting Microsoft to observe a surge in malicious activities targeting Exchange servers.

Guardian Digital recognizes the situation's urgency and endeavors to equip organizations with the knowledge and tools to safeguard their Exchange servers against emerging threats. By staying informed and implementing proactive security measures, organizations can mitigate the risk of data breach and protect sensitive business information.

In addition, the professionals at the firm highlighted that among the recommended strategies for enhancing Exchange server security are prompt patching, vigilant monitoring, access restriction, and service account monitoring. Prompt application of security patches provided by Microsoft and maintaining up-to-date server antivirus protection are crucial steps to mitigate vulnerabilities.

The professionals at the firm highlight how vigilant monitoring of Exchange servers for signs of suspicious activity and prompt investigation of alerts are essential for preventing potential breaches. The professionals at the firm offer Microsoft exchange email protection for its customers.

Brittany added, "Guardian Digital remains committed to supporting organizations in their efforts to bolster email security and navigate the evolving threat landscape."

By providing expert insights, Guardian Digital empowers organizations to safeguard their critical data and uphold the integrity of their business operations.
