Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection

DentalPC Exchange Online Protection

The advanced threats of 2015 generally spread by one of two main vectors: as email attachments, or dropped by exploit kits on users visiting sites with infected ad streams. Like any business, most cybercriminal operations follow the money, looking for the easiest way to steal something of value, and getting thru standard email is easy, real easy.

Small businesses can be particularly vulnerable because they often have less sophisticated computer defenses. Some 80% of small and medium-size businesses don’t use data protection and less than half use email security, according to Intel Security.

DentalPC is leveraging the power of Microsoft Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection to secure small business email systems. With Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your mailboxes against new, sophisticated attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, it complements the security features of Exchange Online Protection to provide better zero-day protection.

But just having the service is not enough. Because email is so important to small business, it is important to configure protection in a way that does not impede business. DentalPC provides customization that allows for Data loss and leak prevention, notification of sender email spoofing, and safe attachments.
