Solution Summary

Managed IDR from TPx gives users a faster, easier way to take the guesswork out of questionable messages.  When a user identifies an email they believe is suspicious, they can report it with a single click right from within their Microsoft Outlook client.  Reported emails are automatically removed from the user’s mailbox, placed in an IDR quarantine, and then evaluated for safety.  Reported Emails are monitored 24/7/365 and evaluated using both advanced software and expert Security Analysts.  Within minutes, safe emails are returned to the user and malicious emails are automatically and globally removed from the customers domain.

How it Works

TPx Inbox Detection and Response is designed for organizations using Microsoft Office 365 for email (Microsoft exchange Online).  Deployment includes some configuration within the customers Microsoft 365 Administration Center to enable the Outlook add-in and ensure that all appropriate users are included in an IDR group.  TPx provides expert guidance on configuring Office 365 for IDR.

Once deployed, the solution is available to end-users as an Outlook add-in that shows up as a button in their Microsoft Outlook ribbon.  Pressing the GoSecure Button initiates the process.  It’s that simple.

Technical Support:

Once deployed, the TPx support team is available to address any technical issues with the solution.  Service is provided 24/7/365 and covers the following types of issues.

  • IDR platform technical issues – TPx is responsible for troubleshooting and resolution of IDR Platform outages and issues. Examples of this include:
    • User(s) unable to access the GoSecureIDR Button
    • Quarantine Admin User login issues.
  • Microsoft Office 365 configuration issues – TPx is available to provide expert guidance for resolution of any Microsoft 365 Configuration issues that may be causing or contributing to a degraded IDR experience. The support provided varies depending on whether TPx provides you with our Managed Office 365 service.
    • Support for customers with TPx Managed Office 365 service: TPx is ultimately responsible for resolving configuration issues with Microsoft Office 365, including, if necessary, escalating problems to Microsoft.  The customer’s role is to provide any needed information in a timely manner so that we can work efficiently through any issues.
    • Support for customers without TPx Managed Office 365 service: The customer is ultimately responsible for resolving configuration issues with Microsoft Office 365, including, if necessary, escalating problems to Microsoft. TPx provides written guidance to the customer to perform self-service configuration and troubleshooting.   In addition, TPx will provide information requested by the customer or Microsoft to assist with troubleshooting as directed, and will provide troubleshooting of the IDR platform as needed.
  • IDR platform change management – TPx is responsible to perform all change management functions within the IDR portal. Examples of this could include:
    • If a customer changes their Security Awareness Vendor
    • Adding and removing Quarantine Administrators
    • Adjusting mail forwarding settings within the IDR platform
  • License & user administration – To add and remove licenses, customers place a request to TPx and we adjust the IDR licenses available and update billing. Assigning users to licenses is done in the customer’s Microsoft 365 Administration Center by adding/removing users from the TPx IDR group.  TPx handles this at no cost as part of our Managed Office 365 OPTIMUM level service.  For customers who have our CORE level Managed Office 365 service or are not contracted with us for any Managed Office 365 service, TPx provides written self-service guidance, or can provide these changes as part of a billable service ticket.

IDR platform management and updates – As security threats evolve, the GoSecure platform evolves with them.  Improvements to the Software are continuously made based on the expert threat hunting and analysis provided by the GoSecure Advanced Response Center team. This helps ensure that the solution retains its efficacy over time.
