Protecting Outlook Web from Denial of Service and Brute Force Attacks

Last week we highlighted the exposures that exist with attachments in Outlook Web. This week we look at protecting Outlook Web from Denial of Service and Brute Force Attacks. Depending upon how you have configured Outlook Web Access (OWA) and Active Directory, you will be opening your network up to either brute force attacks or denial of service attacks. This is an either/or decision for most organizations as it is difficult in native OWA to choose to protect against both at the same time. The reason for this is that OWA and the Active Directory are both governed by the same account lockout policy settings.

President's Message from Mark Rotman Mobile: I am often asked for my thoughts on EAS (ActiveSync) vs OWA security given the amount of corporate mail that is being accessed and stored on personal mobile devices. It is always a tradeoff between the convenience of native email client and information security. Consider what happens if the device is lost or stolen (3.1M stolen last year in the US), how secure is the cloud backup that most devices default to, can you enforce policies in the device (eg. strong passwords), and what is the cost to the enterprise of data exposure.

New "Outlook Mobile" App for Apple and Android

February 26, 2015
Categories: Apps for Outlook, Uncategorized

With the launch of the new Outlook Mobile App into the Apple and Android stores, there are a number of new security concerns from the Microsoft Exchange community. Perhaps the gravest concern for those using the new App are that Microsoft stores email credentials in, and transfers company email data through the cloud (initially Amazon Web Services). That "may" be fine for companies already using the Microsoft and Amazon clouds, but for many security conscious organizations it's not approved and may be a violation of their security policies.
For organizations that want to block or quarantine the app from connecting to their Exchange or Office 365 environments until it can be further evaluated, we’ve included the steps below.
