Data governance covers the entire lifecycle of your data in Office 365, and not just security or management of data. Adequate data governance requires a combination of strategies, policies and processes, and of course technologies. Microsoft Office 365 isn’t the only data governance solution, but, it’s typically the most convenient data governance solution for many businesses who are running their business on #Office365. In this video I’m going to demonstrate how does it work behind the scene. And data could be anywhere , either in Exchange Online, One Drive for Business, SharePoint Online may be in MS Teams etc, you get the idea, right 🙂

Azure Security and Governance

Like every year we have had another Global Azure Bootcamp, we hosted our boot camp like year here at Microsoft Iselin Office in New Jersey.  And this time event was completely sold out and we have more than 30 people in waiting list. There were a variety of topics on everything related to #Azure. All other speakers were Microsoft speakers other an Me 🙂

This event was streamed live throughout the day and our media team were also able to record the session which will be available very soon. So, you can watch the whole recorded session sometime very soon. However, I did an experience and recorded just my session using a #gimble and I believe it came out good. You can watch my session below; however, you won’t be able to see the slide deck, but you can watch and listen to and it will give good enough idea about my whole talk.

I talked about #AzureGovernance and #AzureSentinel and did a number of demos including different business scenarios.  If you are interested in learning about these new features do watch my video below and sign-up for the trail version. As requested, I’ve put my slide decks for you.

Exchange 2019 Early Updates

Microsoft Exchange vulnerability has been in the news for the last few weeks and today Exchange PG released early Cumulative Updates This update is pretty for all versions (supported) versions of Exchange Server.

Release Details

The KB articles that describe the fixes in each release and product downloads are available as follows:


What is a common update fix?

  • 4490060 Exchange Web Services Push Notifications can be used to gain unauthorized access

This particular fix applies to all the CU for all Exchange Servers. No matter which version of Exchange Server you are ruining, this fix is available as below in different CU

This change in behavior becomes effective in the following Exchange releases:

How to Deploy

There is no special requirement. If you deploy the CU then bring you servers in the maintenance mode or you can run the /PrepareAd from the binaries. and don’t forget to Test, Test and Test in your lab first.

In order to apply these changes, a directory admin will need to run the cumulative update setup program with the /PrepareAD parameter. When multiple Exchange versions co-exist in a single Active Directory forest, the cumulative update matching the latest version of Exchange deployed should be used to run /PrepareAD. Setup will automatically run /PrepareDomain in the domain where /PrepareAD is executed. Environments with multiple domains in the forest will need to run the cumulative update setup program using the /PrepareDomain parameter in all domains in the forest. These steps will update the rights granted to Exchange Servers in the Active Directory to meet the new permissions scope. More information on /PrepareAD and /PrepareDomain is available at this link.”

JAN 14 2020 -One year from today Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be supported

Jan 14 2020 – One year from today Exchange Server 2010 will no longer be supported.

What does end of support mean?

Exchange Server, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide new features, bug fixes, security fixes, and so on. This lifecycle typically lasts for 10 years from the date of the product’s initial release, and the end of this lifecycle is known as the product’s end of support. When Exchange 2010 reaches its end of support on January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide:

  • Technical support for problems that may occur
  • Bug fixes for issues that are discovered and that may impact the stability and usability of the server
  • Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered and that may make the server vulnerable to security breaches
  • Time zone updates

Your installation of Exchange 2010 will continue to run after this date. However, due to the changes and risks listed above, we strongly recommend that you migrate from Exchange 2010 as soon as possible.

 

What are my options?

We’ve [Exchange PG] created a page (https://aka.ms/Exchange2010EndOfSupport) where we outline options, but in order to stay supported you essentially can;

  • Migrate all mailboxes to Office 365 and remove all Exchange 2010 servers by Jan 2020, making sure any on-premises servers used for administration purposes are on a supported version.
  • Go Hybrid with Office 365, remove all Exchange 2010 servers by Jan 2020 and make sure any on-premises servers are on a supported version.
  • Stay On-Premises and upgrade to a newer version of Exchange Server.

Clearly we think moving to Exchange Online and Office 365 is a good idea. We really do believe that’s where you’ll get access to the most secure and productive software with the lowest TCO. But over and above all of that, and in relation to the subject of this post – it gets you out of the upgrade business. If you migrate fully to Office 365 you really don’t need to worry about these big bang version migrations any more. You just have to make sure you keep a much smaller number of on-prem servers up to date, and you’re good.

If you do want to stay on-premises don’t forget that you cannot upgrade directly from Exchange 2010 on-premises to Exchange Server 2019. You can upgrade to Exchange 2013 or 2016 directly from Exchange 2010 and we recommend you upgrade to Exchange 2016 if you have the choice. It will give you a longer support lifecycle and more features. Given how similar 2013 and 2016 are from a migration standpoint, it’s also just as easy to go to 2016 as it is 2013. So, upgrade to Exchange 2016, and then you have the option to go to 2019 if you want to.

What if I need help?

If you have a complex deployment, or if you just don’t have the time or skills you might need some help. That’s fine, there are plenty of ways to get help.

If you’re migrating to Office 365, you might be eligible to use our Microsoft FastTrack service. FastTrack provides best practices, tools, and resources to make your migration to Office 365 as seamless as possible. Best of all, you’ll have a real support engineer that will walk you through your migration, from planning and design all the way to migrating your last mailbox. If you want to know more about FastTrack, take a look at Microsoft FastTrack.

If you run into any problems during your migration to Office 365 and you aren’t using FastTrack, or you are migrating to a newer version of Exchange Server, we’re still here to help. Here are some resources you can use:

You might choose to engage a partner to help too. We have a great number of partners with deep skills in Exchange, and we’re sure one of them will be able to help you. Start your search here – https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/solution-providers/home

So What Now?

What now? You need to get started if you haven’t already. Time really does fly and Jan 14th2020 is only a year away.

Tick Tock.
