ExchangeDefender will be launching the LiveArchive Web UI during our webinar next week and we are looking forward to showing you how to launch it with a single command! In the meantime, this blog post is intended to give you a heads-up about the requirements and functionality so you can make design decisions.

Docker & Design

In a recent post, we discussed why MariaDB/RDS is required for the LiveArchive Web UI: it’s where we store the message metadata such as sender/recipient/subject/etc. These elements drive the UI and enable users to locate messages, search, and complete eDiscovery and email recovery tasks.

ExchangeDefender has organized the entire LiveArchive Web UI into a single container that can run on your own docker on a workstation or NAS in your office, across a wide variety of virtualization products and services, as well as public cloud like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. This makes ExchangeDefender Web UI easy to update, easy to manage, and easy to tweak to your requirements.

There are two ways to configure and start the container: preconfigured with environment variables or on-demand browser configuration. If you start the container without the environment defined you will be presented with a web configuration wizard that will prompt for S3 and RDS credentials. If this is the first time you’re deploying LiveArchive Web UI or just want to test it, this is the best way. Once you close your browser all the configuration vanishes and nobody else has access to your mail.

After you’ve configured everything to your liking and are looking to put the service into production, place the appropriate information in the container environment variables, and the container will always launch in production mode and bypass the wizard configuration.

Authentication

ExchangeDefender Web UI was designed to facilitate your email backup and eDiscovery needs. Our experience in compliance archiving and long-term email archiving has allowed us to work with countless organizations and one thing they all have in common is that they all have their own unique access and control needs.

ExchangeDefender Web UI by default presents all the available mailboxes and each email address has its own path. Using this predictable data storage process your Web Application Firewall can easily be configured to include or exclude data by path alone.

We designed the solution so it can be launched quickly, accessed, and managed without a lot of technical skill, and so it can be quickly modified/optimized for production. LiveArchive offers a lot of solutions to modern email problems and the flexibility means you can run different LiveArchive Web UI for different personnel or different tasks.

Resources & Customization

ExchangeDefender Web UI is completely free and open source. This means you can download it, modify it, and use it freely.

It also means that the solution will live even after ExchangeDefender as an organization is gone. You will not find any references or callbacks to our network and all the protocols are fully documented. This enables you to truly craft a failover email solution that can be completely disconnected from the Internet and placed into cold storage / safe.

Resource-wise the container is a little more than a web server and you can run hundreds of users with even the minimal 1 cpu / 1gb ram. This is possible because the SQL workload and data storage are handled by other services.


We hope you’re as excited about the launch as we are. Please join us for the webinar to see how it’s done and we’ll even help you set yours up right after the event! Just think of a good subdomain to point to your new LiveArchive backup platform.

As the throwback to the Victorian era implies, ExchangeDefender looks forward to providing your protection and prosperity. From September to November of 2023 we will be launching a ton of new features and we want to invite you to a webinar that will explain all the details you need to know:

To register for the webinar, click the banner or click here!

The pricing will not change but you’ll get many new features and security settings.

We are responding to the demands and problems our clients face every day exchanging information across the Internet securely.

What worked a decade or two ago, heck even a week or two ago in some cases, is no longer adequate. That’s what you pay us for and the primary value we provide – keeping new exploits and attacks on your technology away from your server/cloud/tenant.

To get the same level of protection and monitoring you’d need a dedicated cybersecurity team for even the smallest of organizations – and we’re taking big steps to simplify that process and give you the ability to control your security without having to deal with every little detail.

We’re excited and hope you get a chance to join us for this webinar – we promise it will save you a ton of time and get you ahead of what will be a very busy quarter.

Our latest webinar live session of 2022 just happened a few days ago, and we had so much to share with our partners. Topics covered included our newly launched sister company, 365 Defender, our new referral program that earns you cash rewards, and so much more. Today, we want to share with you the replay of the webinar featuring just the main highlights. You can always watch the replay video anytime by clicking here.    

365 Defender – providing affordable cybersecurity services directly to small businesses

ExchangeDefender’s overall strategy for 2022, as we recover from the covid-19 global pandemic, is to focus on enhancing our current cybersecurity services and software. There has been a huge shift in the IT workforce, and IT needs for the common small business which is why we launched 365 Defender. 365 Defender enables small businesses with no IT the ability to access affordable cybersecurity services. Why did we do this? The market demand was overwhelming, especially while we were all working from home. We started getting requests directly from businesses who were in dire need of security. Further, IT and MSP providers providers are specializing in more profitable areas leaving an under-served SMB space. 

New Phishing Firewall user experience

ExchangeDefender Phishing Firewall has received a major face lift. We’re making it easier to control where your users go when they aren’t paying attention. The new UI enables direct access to malware scans and site security reports. It also features an improved mobile interface with the ability for logging and auditing. Soon, the firewall will also feature phishing and security user training. The new firewall is automatic, and does not require any actions by the user.

In 2022, every business needs a (good) website

We just launched brand new custom website design packages for an affordable price. Currently there are two options: a full one pager website, and a premium three-page responsive website. Pricing begins at just $199, and as a launch promo we are offering our clients the ability to spread the payments over three easy monthly payments. Why did we start offering this service? In a recent survey, tons of partners expressed their website and maintenance frustrations. We knew that we could create a package that includes the website, hosting, and maintenance.

365 Defender Referral Program

Say hello to less work, and more commission with our new 365 Defender Referral Program. Earn up to $365 commission for every referral that becomes a client. When they subscribe to a service, they’ll get a $20 credit, and you’ll get a cash reward equivalent to their final sales amount. The process is simple – sign up for free, submit a company referral, and earn cash.

As you may have noticed, we have been focusing on the end user experience a lot more. Over the past few years our service and phishing protection have gone from being an IT tool to a cybersecurity service users interact with on a daily basis. For more details and to find out about all the new features we’re delivering this spring please tune into our webinar:

New Phishing Firewall

As we roll out these changes we’re actively seeking user input and feedback on the changes. We’re also offering a live version of the next stuff that you can test drive. Here is our current ExchangeDefender Phishing Firewall screen:

So much has changed since we launched this service years ago and we now have tons of UX data and client feedback that we can use to make the ExchangeDefender Phishing Firewall better for everyone.

Next time you’re on the Phishing Firewall look in the upper left under “Phishing Firewall is getting a new look! Check it out here!”. Clicking on that button will default the firewall to the new version every time you visit (you can roll back as well).

What’s new?

We’ve cleared the clutter and made it very obvious where to click in order to proceed. For the longest time our users didn’t know they could click on the link to proceed :emoji for shrugs:

From there we’ve enhanced the process that keeps the user secure. These features require the user to authenticate and all their repeat visits will feature the ability to apply org policies (for safe sites, thus bypassing the screen), manage personal settings and alert the user to potential danger ahead.

We’ve also integrated open security services that can scan any link on demand and identify the site reputation and possible malware content. Our enterprise clients also enjoy the ability to sandbox/proxy link content and to preview the web site without actually clicking it and opening it in the browser. Of course the ability to slipstream your brand and your support into the process is available to enterprise customers as well.

Let us know what you think! We’re looking for all the feedback we can get.

email authorization webinar

Welcome to 2021: Comply with the industry security standards or your mail gets bounced.

Believe it or not, that’s the best case scenario: When you actually know your email wasn’t delivered.

Most of the time, though, your sender reputation is scored by internal/proprietary lists and the message is just moved to trash. Worst case scenarios – where hackers are using your domain and email address as impersonations (to launch attacks) or to fool internal employees.

ExchangeDefender has always provided technology and policies to help manage this, but few of our partners have fully adopted it. We have been seeing an escalation in attacks over the past year and it’s only a matter until these security gaps are exploited.

We don’t want to see that happen to you. It is important enough that we are willing to help tighten your security and deploy auth protocols on your behalf, free of charge. Only catch is, it has to be completed by October 31st, 2021.

Too good to be true? Tune into our webinar next Thursday to get the specifics about what needs to be done and how. We will be covering:

– Best practices for email deliverability
– Required DNS records for SPF & DKIM
– Review of domain security policies
– Email delivery troubleshooting

We cannot overstate the importance of getting this done. ExchangeDefender (and practically everyone else) will no longer relay mail beyond 2021 without valid email authorization DNS records in place. Don’t wait until December and face expensive consulting contracts, we can handle this for free now and it will take less than 10 minutes of your time. That is how committed we are to keeping you secure and your email arriving where you send it, in the Inbox, every time.

P.S. We strongly encourage you to attend the webinar live so you can ask questions. As DNS is not something we host/offer please keep in mind that our support team will not assist or troubleshoot DNS issues for you.

Today’s webinar featured the launch of ExchangeDefender’s next generation LiveArchive, showcased by CEO, Vlad Mazek.


The new Live Archive is now a webmail in its own right not dependent on Exchange, Gmail or other major email providers. You’ll have to watch the video tour to get understand the mega power of the new service but a few highlights are:

– Live Archive offers real-time archiving of all inbound and outbound mail

– The ability to send and receive email during outages and other network disruptions

– The mailbox holds up to one year of mail

ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is getting a major upgrade.

New, modern, responsive web interface that will make Gmail jealous.
