We expanded FileWall to protect Microsoft 365 users from File-Based Attacks across all M365 business applications. Here are the key features we encourage FileWall admins to take into consideration.
If your role in your company is the global Microsoft 365 administrator, then you know how this great cloud environment acts as a target for hackers. While the cyber security market offers tools to protect specific channels like email, it seems that other “satellite applications” such as OneDrive, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams are left behind.
That’s the reason odix has invested in extending FileWall™, a Microsoft 365 native app that provides an enhanced security layer from File-Based Attacks, to support all M365 business applications. FileWall Release 4.0 main features introduce support for Microsoft OneDrive and Teams.
Activate your OneDrive service within FileWall Admin Console
FileWall subscription for Microsoft 365 grants an automatic license-to-use for sanitizing the files stored in the OneDrive application. FileWall’s admin can see under the Admin Console’s “Licenses” section that each “user” is now eligible to sanitize files in OneDrive.
Once a user is activated with the “OneDrive” service, any file that is uploaded to the user’s folders in OneDrive will be sanitized.
The screen below shows an “active” status for Exchange Online (email) service while “not active” for OneDrive.
Activate your Teams service within FileWall Admin Console
Microsoft Teams enable file sharing in two methods:
FileWall version 4.0 includes support for files uploaded in “Teams”. Files uploaded to the “Chat” will be supported shortly.
FileWall subscription for Microsoft 365 grants automatically the “Teams” license-to-use.
FileWall administrator should activate the “Teams” folders to initiate the service.
Once “Teams” is activated with the “Teams” service, any file that is uploaded to the group folder in Teams will be sanitized according to the Teams’ default policy.
Custom filtering policy per business application
The FileWall Admin Console includes a separate configuration area for each Microsoft 365 business application.
For each Microsoft 365 application, FileWall offers a “Default Policy”.
The FileWall’s admin can easily customize and modify new policies according to the company’s needs. The different policies can be assigned to specific users or user groups.
