The Microsoft Exchange server has impacted many organizations since it was publicly disclosed last week. According to a scan conducted by the Dutch Institute of Vulnerability Disclosure (DIVD), 46,000 servers are still exposed to the vulnerabilities.

While these are critical vulnerabilities within many organizations, it’s always a great idea to take a step back to get the bigger picture. Having a plan in place to stop malicious threats from entering your environment is crucial for profit maximization. New vulnerabilities are discovered all the time, so having certified engineers ready to defend your network at a moment’s notice is vital to the success and continued operation of your business.

Threat actors will rush to exploit these vulnerabilities as fast as they can once they catch wind of them, but it’s important to note other threats still exist and have been active during the frenzy. The main thing to take away from the recent rush is how valuable a Security Operations Center can be in all of this.

The question is when you’ll be breached, not if, in the security landscape. We saw it with the SolarWinds breach, and now, we’re seeing it again on a large scale with the Microsoft Exchange servers. Our certified experts are always staying in tune with the latest threat intelligence and utilizing it to protect our partners.

In the long run, the cost of dealing with data theft and its repercussions are going to be far more expensive than integrating our Security Operations Center to monitor your network 24/7. This is how you truly get value out of our services.

If you’re still concerned about the Exchange server vulnerabilities, Microsoft released their monthly report on patch notes to give insight on what needs to updated. Call our Security Operations Center, speak with an expert, and we will ensure you’re properly protecting your organization.

In conclusion, be proactive. The best way you’re going to be able to stay out of the mess threat actors create is by detecting and neutralizing the threats before they reach your machines.
