FSECURE WINDOWS SERVER AND EXCHANGE 2010 = EXCLUSION ?

Dear all,

 

I will install new exchange 2010 servers. We count to install Fsecure for windows server and fsecure for ms exchange. 

I want to know if I must configure directories exclusion for the exchange servers like the databases,... ?

 

Thanks in advance for your advies,

 

Giacomo

Hi,

 

Yes exclusions are needed, but the installers should place them automatucally, doublechecking that makes sense nevertheless!

 

I'd recommend that you subscribe for E-Mail and Server-Security Piloting and have the best combination from the start. The installer combines Server and Exchange installer ind one Pack. The "Beta"-state should not worry you as the internal products are well tested as single point producs already.

Sorry but we prefer to wait the official version

F-Secure

Re: FSECURE WINDOWS SERVER AND EXCHANGE 2010 = EXCLUSION ?

Note that the Release Candidate build is quite stable. If no problems are found during piloting, the Release Candidate version will be the final/official one. So, you don't need to wait :) If you find problems while installing and playing with the RC in your network, you will help us and other customers to make the high-quality release out.

Sorry but I prefer that it is the others who tests the rc for us ! 

F-Secure

Re: FSECURE WINDOWS SERVER AND EXCHANGE 2010 = EXCLUSION ?

Why do you think that _others_ will test and find all problems that will not appear later on your environment?

 

The development team does extensive testing internally and we already have the RC deployed internally at F-Secure.

 

Could you elaborate why you are afraid to use the Release Candidate?

Hi dear!

 

I do agree.

If you don't know what to exclude and how to exclude, please check these web links:

Because exclusions will compromise the security in the environment; you must always consider how to take care of non scanned files.

 

How to exclude in F-Secure.

Microsoft exclusion recommendations for Exchange 2010.

Microsoft exclusion recommendations for SQL.

 

 

Hope the information will be to any help.

Re: FSECURE WINDOWS SERVER AND EXCHANGE 2010 = EXCLUSION ?

I do not like these atricles at all, because

Exclusions always expose the system to a higher risk, esp. when they are global! 

Windows can execute a file malware.edb if it is Win32 based, and if *.edb is excluded you are trapped!

 

F-Secure must carefully check the mentioned articles and has to take steps to make these manual exclusions unneeded!

 

There are similar documents for PDCs and AD-Server.
