Netwrix enables Exchange Online security for insider threat protection in the cloud

Netwrix Auditor for Office 365 provides visibility and user behavior analytics to enable protection of cloud-based email services against cyber threats

Irvine, CA, April 19, 2016

Netwrix Corporation, a provider of IT auditing software that delivers complete visibility into IT infrastructure changes and data access, has released Netwrix Auditor for Office 365. The application delivers complete visibility into Exchange Online by detecting and reporting on changes made to Exchange objects, configurations and permissions, as well as non-owner mailbox access to Exchange Online user mailboxes.

According to the Netwrix 2015 Cloud Security Survey, almost 50% of companies start their cloud-based operations with migrating their email systems to the cloud. However, companies are not confident about cloud security: 69% acknowledge the risks of unauthorized access and 43% recognize the risk of account hijacking. In order to mitigate security risks, ensure uninterrupted email service and speed up the troubleshooting of disruptive changes, companies need to gain rigorous control over sensitive email systems. Netwrix Auditor for Office 365, a part of the recently announced Netwrix Auditor 8.0 platform, is designed to overcome the limitations of Exchange Online’s native auditing tools, such as lack of reporting capabilities and consolidation of all necessary details into a single view.

The key features of Netwrix Auditor for Office 365 include:

  • Maximized visibility on the full spectrum of changes: Informs user about Exchange Online configuration changes with all necessary details, such as what was changed, who made a change and where a change occurred, as well as the before and after values and IP addresses, improving Office 365 email security.
  • Scheduled and on-demand reports and dashboards: Enables easy Office 365 security analytics by delivering timely and complete audit information in scheduled and on-demand reports and dashboards that offer multiple usability options, including filtering, sorting and exporting in various formats.
  • Continuous regulatory compliance: Helps establish a secure and compliant Exchange Online organization by offering the broadest range of scheduled and on-demand reports, dashboards and data search to address specific requirements of PCI DSS 3.0, HIPAA, SOX, FISMA/NIST800-53, ISO/IEC 27001 and other compliance regulations.
  • Non-owner mailbox access auditing: Detects Exchange Online mailbox access by someone other than the owner and notifies mailbox owners about all such activity to prevent privilege escalation issues. Reports specify exactly what actions were performed on specific mailbox items, the client used and the computer’s IP address.

"The largest to-date Panama Papers data breach teaches us that today we all live in the reality of the ever-growing security risks," said Alex Vovk, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix. "Since it is almost impossible to predict where a cyberattack would come from, any company should enable complete visibility into most critical systems to spot anomalies that might result in a data breach. Deep understanding of who touches sensitive mailbox data will detect insider threat and data exfiltration to strengthen security of cloud environment and ensure companies that any unstructured data is under control."
