Microsoft Teams has quickly become the go-to application for remote work, accelerating dramatically in usage over the last year. As Teams is still relatively new, much is unknown about how it operates and how hackers will approach it
Avanan worked with Microsoft to apply the Avanan layers of security on top of Teams, and analyzed close to 200 enterprise customers over two months to uncover current hacking activities in Microsoft Teams and the cybersecurity risk involved in its usage
In a new white paper, Avanan analysts identified a number of popular attack types within Teams, such as malware, impersonation and east-west attacks.
Additionally, we've offered a number of recommendations for companies, including that they secure the application from DLP, malicious files and links, as well as educate end-users on secure usage.
