Businesses Under Attack: What’s At Stake

BEC statsBusiness Email Compromise (BEC) attacks - attacks that manipulate employees into giving information or access by pretending to be a person of authority in an organization - are causing significant damage to businesses.  A combination of social engineering techniques and weak authentication credentials can allow BEC attacks to remain undetected by the usual security tools and spam filtering.


What are you doing to prevent falling victim to BEC?


Managed Microsoft 365 Services

While Microsoft is one of the largest business platforms used, often organizations make the transition to M365 and soon realize their internal IT staff has become bogged down dealing with role changes, licensing changes, and numerous Microsoft application management updates. With extensive features and opportunities for business improvement, it makes sense to work with a Managed Services Provider who has the experience to maximize and seamlessly utilize all the benefits.  

Whether your business simply requires licensing provisioning and access to end-user support or is looking for a fully managed solution, our experts are here to help. With two (2) service offerings, designated Base (Tenant) and Premium (User Management), you can choose the level of support you need. 

Managed SaaS Backup and Defense for Microsoft 365 Services 

Appalachia’s Managed Cloud SaaS Backup Service offers comprehensive backup and recovery for critical cloud data that lives in Microsoft 365 applications.  A true cloud backup solution protects not just files and folders, but collaboration tools like conversations, calendars, and groups.  Point-in-time backups, capture relevant changes across the entire Microsoft 365 platform and provide an independent copy of data outside of cloud provider servers.

Appalachia’s SaaS Defense provides advanced threat protection and spam filtering for critical business data in Microsoft 365. 

Managed Detection & Response (MDR) for Microsoft 365

Often, the first sign that one of your user’s Office 365 accounts has been compromised comes too late to prevent damage to your organization’s reputation and financial health. The goal of Appalachia’s Managed M365 offering is to add a significant layer of protection against Business Email Compromise (BEC) and other similar attacks. These attacks attempt to gain control of your users’ accounts to steal sensitive data or defraud your organization, as well as its partners.

To detect and prevent such attacks, Appalachia has partnered with Huntress to actively monitor and stop Microsoft 365 account compromises before they can cost your business both time and money. We use a wide variety of detection methods to monitor for suspicious activity, and if needed we can lock a user long enough for an incident to be investigated.
