What data can I get?
CEO and CIO mailboxes contain lots of business-critical messages, so it’s important to keep a close eye on each non-owner access attempt. With this Exchange monitoring tool from Netwrix, you can see who accessed which mailbox, when and from which workstation. Using the crucial details on what items were viewed, edited or deleted and whether Outlook Web Access (OWA) or a desktop client was used, you can investigate unauthorized activity before it turns into a data breach.
How can I use this data?
Even though many mail server monitoring tools can alert you to critical Exchange database or mailbox property changes, you are likely to miss more sophisticated threats. Netwrix Auditor provides a unified view of all anomalous activity alerts triggered by an individual across all audited systems, along with each user’s cumulative risk score, to help you improve detection of threat actors and make more informed remediation decisions in less time.
Whenever public folders stop receiving mail, Exchange services go down or Outlook status indicates connectivity problems, you have no time to analyze cryptic native logs to check for mail client failures or examine the mail queue. Netrix Auditor’s Interactive Search empowers you to quickly sort through your audit data and fine-tune your search criteria until you find the information you need. You can even use your queries to easily create custom reports that will speed investigation of similar incidents in the future.
Even if you carefully monitor Exchange Server and set up proper alerts, it can still be challenging to demonstrate to auditors that you are complying with specific regulatory requirements. With Netwrix Auditor, you can pass compliance audits faster and with less effort by providing auditors with ready-to-use compliance reports mapped to multiple regulatory standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, SOX, GLBA and FISMA/NIST.
