A disruption in email services can mean losing orders, missing out on important customer communications and damage to your organization’s reputation. Add to this the increasing volume of cyber-security attacks along with the need to support mobile devices, and your IT organization’s ability to provide support can quickly reach a breaking point. IT departments need to deliver email services that are constantly available, so having deep operational insight into the inner workings of their messaging infrastructure is critical. Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange The Splunk App for Microsoft® Exchange answers the call of IT departments globally. In today’s complex world of interdependent technologies, customers need a monitoring and reporting solution that can look beyond the immediate needs of a single product and deal with the email service. Traditional email management tools only notify you of an “up or down” status and are incapable of viewing the entire messaging platform beyond the Exchange Server boundary. By contrast, the Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange delivers a data-rich and easy-to-use platform to make your entire messaging infrastructure visible and simple to manage. The Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange collects metrics and logs from Microsoft Exchange Server and the associated infrastructure (Windows Server security event logs, Exchange audit and application events and internal .NET data structures). Now Exchange administrators can view real-time trends, dashboards and reports to reduce mean time to repair problems. IT organizations can view service availability, usage patterns and traffic flow, while also drilling into details on performance and security.
