Partners, Managed Service Providers and Customers rejoice! Vircom today launches its all-new modusCloud Alerts Portal for modusCloud and Proofpoint Essentials. The new tool is a strong step forward in proactive email security and protection. Admins using the modusCloud Alerts Portal can now set Security and Business alerts to find out if noteworthy actionable events have occurred on their modusCloud or Proofpoint Essentials deployments.
“We’re thrilled to offer this value-added tool and integration for our customers, partners and MSPs,” says Mike Petsalis, CEO of Vircom. “This is another step forward in our focus on making life a little easier for those who are on the front lines of protecting corporate email from advanced threats, ransomware, email fraud and phishing attacks. This is of crucial importance in the face of all the cyber threats constantly barrelling their way towards SMBs across North America, Europe and worldwide, and something we intend to do our best in protecting against. Vircom has always been about end user serenity, so that employees can focus on their own work and business.”
“With this in hand, management is made easier and efficiency increases, allowing MSPs, partners and customer IT Managers/Administrators to better realize the true benefits of modusCloud’s advanced protection against phishing, malware, ransomware and email fraud, along with continuity, encryption, DLP and powerful cloud-based archiving for email, all with the service, expertise and support that has distinguished Vircom’s brand for more than two decades.”
Admins can find out if system configuration is opening unecessary security holes in the deployment or if system or user behavior is unusual or risky.
In this version of the modusCloud Alerts Portal the following Security alerts can be set:
- SPF configuration issue
- Domain included in DNSBL (or RBL) list(s)
- Possible spam wave detected
- Possible compromised account detected
- Inadvisable trusted sender domains including self-trusting
Business Alerts are targetted for partners, resellers and Managed Service Providers (MSPs). Admins can find out if anything significant has changed with their customers from a business perspective. Having this information allows Admins to be proactive and contact their customers and further help and inform.
In this version of the modusCloud Alerts Portal the following Business alerts can be set:
- Package Change on a domain
- Trial Expiration
- Change in MX record
- Significant change in customer usage (including exceeding license count)
Setting Up Alerts
Admins can set up which Security and Business alerts they would like to see and be notified about. They can also choose the email address to which the Alerts Digest (see below Alerts Digest) will be sent.
A daily Alerts Digest is sent to an admin email address. It contains a summary of all the alerts, and detail about more critical alerts.
The Alerts Dashboard gives a quick visual look at the alerts state of the deployment. It offers easy to use clickable drill-down if an admin wants to view a specific alert in more detail.
