Why You May Want to Create an Exchange 2010 Whitelist

If you use Microsoft Windows, you may have considered the Exchange Server, which is a mail server and calendaring product developed by Microsoft. Whether you have it as a Software-as-a-Service or on-premises software, you’ll want to ensure that everything is secure and safe.

At Comodo, we understand that firewalls, antivirus and antimalware products should scan emails or can scan them, but that may not be enough. You may want to consider creating an Exchange 2010 whitelist, as well, which can ensure that only approved messages are allowed.

Difficulties

When the product first came out, whitelisting wasn’t very popular or understood, though its opposite, blacklisting, was considered the best option. A whitelist just means that nothing is allowed to go through unless it is on the list. It can be applied in many areas of business, including:

  • Emails
  • Software
  • Applications
  • Devices
  • Servers
  • Users

Most people don’t know how to whitelist this server and may not find it easy to get the information necessary. Many email providers make it easier to handle the whitelisting of domains and emails, but they require you to input a lot of codes and really know how to get in there and do things. IT departments may know how to do it, but they may not.

How We Help

Our product can help you create whitelists for this server option and can make it simple. You’ll be able to ensure that devices have it and that only approved mail can go through.

For example, many companies allow employees to get personal mail to their professional email, but that could set you up for viruses and malware. Instead, you may want to forbid personal emails by whitelisting. Contact us today to learn more about our product.
