Outbound Mail Security Upgrade

Project Overview 

CU Boulder currently utilizes Cisco IronPort for email routing and sanitation (Spam, Phishing, and Malware removal). This project will migrate all outbound SMTP mail through Microsoft’s Exchange Online Protection and Advanced Threat Protection. Migrating to Microsoft’s offering provides enhanced security, cost efficiency by “bundling” licensing, and provides a cost-effective path for other ongoing projects in OIT.

Phase 1: Multi-function devices

The first phase of this project will focus on updating Multi-function devices (MFD). Over the course of fall 2022, all MFD on campus that utilize scan to email functionality will be reconfigured to a new server in order to work with the new IronPort routing.

Project Status
