Detect Google Workspace & Microsoft 365 Account Takeovers
A cloud account takeover has the potential to do a lot of damage in a school district. When a criminal gains access to an internal account, it makes their activity look like legitimate, authorized behavior to traditional, perimeter-based cybersecurity tools. The result is unfettered access to all the data, files, and email addresses that account has access to.
The hacker can then upload malware into your system, send phishing emails to other contacts to gain control of more accounts, grant OAuth access to malicious apps, and more. These types of attacks are notoriously difficult to detect, and are proving costly for school districts. Using account takeover and phishing attacks, criminals have been able to divert district payments meant for vendors to their own bank accounts. They have also gained access to student social security numbers, staff W2s, and much more.
“Cloud Monitor caught a dozen phishing attempts and disabled a couple of accounts that had logged in from overseas just this morning. I’m grateful that I have it to catch and remediate these attacks quickly. The Login Analyzer is particularly helpful because we’re able to see where logins are coming from. There’s no way our small team could stay on top of it all while also supporting our students, faculty, and staff.”
“When I first learned about Cloud Monitor I was skeptical that such an inexpensive solution would be able to secure our Google Workspace data better than Cloudlock. However, after our first week using the solution, I was more than convinced. Cloud Monitor has been one of the best technology decisions I’ve made this year.”
“The addition of Cloud Monitor to our IT infrastructure allows me and my team to feel confident about protecting our students and staff when using Google Workspace. The dashboard and alerts provide me real-time info so that I can take immediate action to thwart any threats.”
“Cloud Monitor provided us a level of visibility we needed to ensure the security and safety of our students and staff. The solution was quick to deploy and gave us immediate insights.”
