At Control IT Solutions, we offer a reliable Microsoft Office 365 monitoring service, allowing you to evaluate the productivity of your network performance, protect your servers from scams and keep tabs on the health of your system.
On top of our brilliant service, our team is friendly, professional and approachable. We always endeavour to communicate with our clients on a personable level, so you feel comfortable coming to us with any problems or queries.
As with any cloud-based system with sharepoints online, it’s always possible that your servers might come under attack. The very nature of modern business practices can leave you vulnerable to scams, hackers and phishers.
For example, many businesses are using Microsoft 365 for their email. However, they often use different Microsoft 365 business applications (such as OneDrive for business) for their productivity and collaboration of their staff.
More often than not, these organisations rely on basic antivirus or malware for their security solutions. These will not be triggered if Microsoft 365 is compromised in any way, leaving the entire system vulnerable to attack without detection.
At Control IT Solutions, we use Bluedog Microsoft 365 secure monitoring. Bluedog can track how an attacker moves through your system in real-time and will pick up on the login location and any lateral movements within a network. By correlating this data, the patterns of the attackers are easily spotted.
As soon as an incident has been identified, action will be taken by the Bluedog first responders to eliminate the threat from your business or organisation. We do this by either blocking the user, isolating the device, or closing off a network segment. This resolves the issue quickly, efficiently and accurately.
With its huge capacity for collaboration, many employees are working from home with Microsoft 365. This gigantic shift correlated with an increase in security threats. In March 2020, phishing emails skyrocketed by 660% compared to the previous month.
Without the physical monitoring of bosses and other employees, the untrained user is more likely to fall prey to these scams. This makes many businesses more vulnerable than ever before.
Bluedog monitors Office 365 by looking for telltale signs of a security breach. These include:
Once all anomalies are detected, we scrutinise and act upon any behaviour which could be malicious.
Increase your sense of peace and control by trusting Control IT Solutions to monitor your Office 365 performance. We’ll be on hand to give you an insight into any performance issues, suggesting improvements to enhance your digital experience. We want to ensure that your Microsoft 365 service is working optimally for your business.
As an experienced IT company, our monitoring capabilities exceed that of simple user monitoring. If you’re looking to optimise your performance, it’s always a good idea to enlist the support of a trusted IT company like the team at Control IT Solutions.
It can be challenging to escape confusing jargon in our industry. However, our team at Control IT Solutions are friendly and approachable. We are excellent communicators and will always explain everything to you in plain terms.
Can we trace if someone extracted information from the network when they, for example, put in their resignation to validate they did not breach any of the non-competition clauses in a contract?
Yes, this capability is certainly present inside the Bluedog Microsoft 365 monitoring solution. It is possible to have a complete overview of what actors have been doing. You can review files, folders and emails that have been accessed, downloaded, deleted, etc.
This helps identify any data that may have been stolen or leaked, down to the user and IP address.
*Important note* The contents of files or emails themselves are not visible to Bluedog, only the filenames and locations of files inside SharePoint/OneDrive and the subject of the email or filename of the attachment.
Can we find out if someone is in a different location than where they claim they are?
Yes, this is possible using the IP address of the user. This allows the Bluedog team to determine where actors are located while performing their activities.
Can we see if a particular office location is working more proactively than other locations are?
Yes, Bluedog can group data sets based on geolocation, country and city. This gives the ability to check on performance or make other correlations from the data.
Could you generate a report to show the number of external (only) emails sent by each user over a period, i.e. seven days?
Yes. The Exchange dashboard provides insights into email behaviour from within the company. It also shows how email is treated, showing the types of email a user sends and receives.
This provides excellent insights into any targeted attacks on your business, identifying which users receive the most phishing attacks.
With this information, Bluedog can provide recommendations on what action to take to improve security measures for the company.
