Targeted Attacks on Microsoft 365 Accounts: Is Your Company Protected?
Microsoft is seen as a key driver of the global migration to the cloud: with Microsoft 365, the company has brought the world’s most widely used office suite to the cloud, and around 180 million business customers are already using Microsoft 365. These business customers share and upload critical and sensitive files to the cloud on a daily basis – a fact that cybercriminals are aware of. Recently, Microsoft reported a 250 % increase in targeted attacks on Microsoft 365 accounts. While the corporation has built a number of security features into Microsoft 365, the question you should be asking yourself is: Are these measures enough? Security experts advise adding another layer of security to protect users from all types of email threats and data breaches.
Why is this the case?
It’s quite easy for attackers to identify a Microsoft 365 user, as MX records and auto-discover entries are available for public viewing online. It is therefore crucial to secure your Microsoft 365 accounts, as Microsoft’s built-in protection alone is not enough. Hornetsecurity employs a range of powerful technologies to combat various types of email malware, security leaks and other risks. An extra plus is that it hides Microsoft’s DNS and MX records which helps prevent potential attackers.
