Microsoft Hosted Exchange Security Features – Standard v Advanced Threat Protection
Microsoft Hosted Exchange mail boxes offer Malware, Spam and Phishing protection as standard, features not offered by POP or IMAP mailboxes provided by ISP’s or Domain Hosting Companies.
Under the “Security & Compliance” section of the hosted exchange admin web page, you can configure Hosted Exchange to deal with threats in many different ways. Rather than directing E-mails containing Spam, Malware and Phishing to each users “Junk” folder, you have the option of holding them on the Hosted Exchange Server in “Quarantine” where they can be held, examined and possibly released without threatening the clients network.
Anti-Spam, DKIM and Anti-Malware are standard options using Microsoft Hosted Exchange.
However, by adding the optional “Microsoft Advance Threat Protection (ATP)” additional security options become available including sophisticated “ATP Anti-Phishing“, “ATP Safe Attachments” and “ATP Safe-Links”
The additional features allow customised threat protection not offered by any other mail platform.
