The Experts Conference (TEC), the biggest Microsoft training event of the year, was a huge success last year – with 5,000 registrants. The results were overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the advanced-level Microsoft training and industry expert-led sessions.

In preparation for TEC 2021, Quest will have teaser-like TEC Talks throughout the year, which are bite-sized practical training sessions with no product pitches.

While Microsoft has been providing functionality for SharePoint Syntex, most companies have no idea how accessible and effective it is for existing SharePoint sites. While there are additional enhancements for automation and image and object recognition with AI Builder, SharePoint Syntex is very affordable and easy to utilize today. 

But how can you be sure?

Joel Oleson, Microsoft Office Apps and Services MVP and Regional Director, can help.

Microsoft wants you to know that patching the four critical security flaws in Microsoft Exchange Server listed in CVE-2021-26855, CVE-2021-26857, CVE-2021-26858, CVE-2021-27065 does not remediate existing compromised systems. Organizations need to patch, and then they need to investigate and, if compromised, stop the attack. Like most other attacks, this exploit is an avenue for an attacker to gain access to the rest of your network, meaning the investigation must widen beyond Exchange.
 
Join our panel of Microsoft Certified Masters, MVPs, and Quest experts share with you how they are advising clients to spot and stop existing Exchange Server compromises, including:

How and where to spot key indicators of compromise
Practical guidance on next steps to take if you’ve been compromised
Ways to proactively start protecting yourself against future attacks

This panel discussion is for any organization with an on-premises Exchange Server, even if that one server is only there to help manage hybrid Active Directory. The panel will discuss what you can do natively and what Quest customers can do with their Change Auditor and Enterprise Reporter solutions to investigate and stop attacks. 
 
You'll hear from Exchange Server Microsoft Certified Master and MVP Jeff Guillet, Microsoft Certified Solutions Master and MVP Michael Van Horenbeeck (a.k.a. Mr. Van Hybrid), Microsoft MVP Paul Robichaux, and CISSP and Quest solutions expert Bryan Patton.

A crisis eliminates all the reasons why we couldn’t do something before. The pandemic taught us that many people can be productive and work from home for extended periods. The HAFNIUM Exchange Server attack taught us that unpatched and unmaintained Exchange on-premises servers are vulnerable to attack and that it might be a better idea to leave that work to Microsoft by moving email to Exchange Online. 

Attackers are attempting to exploit the four critical security flaws in Exchange Servers 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019 to gain a foothold in your environment. This is the wake-up call for many organizations to move email from on-premises Exchange to Exchange Online (EXO). Over 5.5 billion mailboxes are supported in EXO – will yours be too? 

Join our panelists of Microsoft MVPs and Metalogix and Binary Tree Quest experts to discuss: 

  • A review of the Exchange Server exploits 
  • The differences between Exchange on-premises and Exchange Online 
  • The benefits of mail in Exchange Online over on-premises 
  • Why you would not move to Exchange Online 
  • How to make the move to Exchange Online 
  • How to manage and secure your new environment 

You’ll hear from longtime Microsoft MVP and Microsoft 365 expert, Tony Redmond, Microsoft MVP and former CTO of Quadrotech (now part of Quest), Paul Robichaux, Metalogix (now part of Quest) Exchange to Exchange Online migration expert Malte Schoch, and Binary Tree (now part of Quest) migration expert Richard Dean.
