SOMEONE’S SPYING ON YOUR BUSINESS RIGHT NOW.
How do you know they’re not?

A cybercriminal could have access to all of your important and sensitive data. They could be watching everything you do, every document you create and every bit of data you upload. All your bank details, financials, emails and even customer data. Everything you’ve kept secure to be GDPR compliant could be in the hands of a hacker.

Here’s how they do it

Your staff are the weak link

You may be wondering how hackers even got access to your system in the first. Unfortunately, the answer is probably you or your staff. In cybersecurity, people are the weak link. It’s in our nature to be trusting and even your most skeptical and observant employee is going to fall foul of this cyber-attack. Hackers have become so savvy when it comes to stealing your password that you’ll willing give it over. They’ll pose as legitimate businesses, such as Microsoft, claiming your Office365 account is under attack and that you need to change your password. Which you’ll willingly do because the email will be perfect, there won’t be any of the usual red flags.
Although you cannot guarantee stopping hackers setting up admins you can track them down and cut them out before they become a problem. Because we’re passionate about cybersecurity we’re going to show you exactly how and where to check for admins.
Here’s how to detect admins on your Office 365 account

Here’s how you can protect yourself!

Or we can do it for you

If you felt overwhelmed by that, feel it’s just too techy or time-consuming then don’t worry because we’ve developed our own unique system to automate the process of scanning for admins that shouldn’t be there. If you haven’t got time to watch the video above, then you haven’t got time to check for suspicious admins yourself.

All it costs to have our fully automated system scanning your system every two hours is £10 a month for less than 25 users and £20 a month for more than 25 users. When we’ve had clients almost tricked out of £121,000 (they actually lost £38,000 only out of luck did they not pay the full £121,000 in one go) then £10 or £20 a month really is a no-brainer. How much would it cost you to employ someone to manually check every single Office 365 user, for every type of admin in two different places every two hours?

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Within Office 365 there are a number admin levels. These admin levels determine how much and what specific data you have access to as well as your privileges. The highest-level admin is a global admin who usually have access to all or almost all of the business data and have most of the permissions. Cybercriminals are targeting MD’s or those high up in a business as they often have the highest admin level as they like to be in control and have access to all the data. Once in the cybercriminals will use this high level of admin privileges to grant themselves access to a range of data and begin snooping on all other users. With level of access to your business is like gold to a cybercriminal. They’ll wait until they’ve gathered enough intel on you or your clients or suppliers before striking to cause optimum damage.
The threat from unsolicited admins is real. Just consider how much damage a cybercriminal could do if they could access all your important data. Not only could it ruin your business but also that of your clients or suppliers. You may not have heard much about this as normal security software does not pick up on changes in admins. That’s why we’ve had to create a dedicated product to automatically scan, track down and cut out unsolicited admins. These cybercriminals are sneaky and willing to play the long game you won’t know they’ve been monitoring your data until it’s too late. We’ve had a client, an MD of a larger business, lose £38,000 to this scam, their system was infiltrated by cybercriminals who monitored his emails. Once they had enough data they emailed one of their clients posing as the MD requesting a transfer of £121,000 for goods and services it was only by luck that the client only paid part (£38,000) before they realised what had happened. The MD could not afford to lose this client the blow to his finances and reputation would be too huge, so he paid back the £38,000!
You’re welcome to check for admin changes yourself using the tutorial we provided. But you will need to manually check, every single user, for every type of admin, in two different places in every two hours. Not many people or even IT teams have the manpower for such a large and time-consuming task. Our service automates the whole process and will scan your system ever two hours to check for admin changes, you won’t have to do anything. But it’s completely up to you. How much would it cost you to employ someone to do this for you?
When you initially sign up for our service you’ll be sent an email requesting that you delegate access to your Office 365 portal. Don’t worry it’s a really simple, all you have to do is click through a link and accept. We will then be able to implement our service and it’ll run automatically in the background remotely scanning your system every two hours checking for unsolicited admin, you won’t even know it’s there. If we do ever detect any changes in admins we will notify you immediately. You will receive an email where you can then choose to accept or reject the changes in admin depending on whether or not they were meant to be changed. If you ignore the email the system will keep notifying you until you accept or reject the admin changes. From time to time, you will also receive an email notifying you that everything is okay, but in this instance, no news is good news.
We need global admin rights as it lets us access your Office365 portal, to detect unsolicited admins as it’s the only way we can spot them. Without global admin rights, we’re limited in what we can do, and we won’t be able to protect you. However, as we want to remain fully transparent and trusted we will send you a guide on how to turn on auditing. Enabling auditing will allow you to see exactly what we’re doing with our global admin rights, so you can have complete transparency and peace of mind.
If you already have an IT support team you’re welcome to ask them about protection from unsolicited admins and can even show them our guide on how to detect admins. But chances are they will not have the time to manually check for admins or expertise to automate the process as our service is state of the art. Microsoft have confirmed no one else is doing is doing this and gave us the green light to go ahead with developing the automated system as they thought it was a fantastic idea. We will happily work alongside your existing IT support company to provide you with this extra level of protection. You do not need to transfer all your IT support over to use, we are offering this service as a standalone, so you can remain protected.
Anyone in the world because the service is provided remotely!
You’re free to cancel our service anytime you like, with one months’ notice. We just ask that you notify accounts@promptpc.co.uk one month in advance. You’re not bound to a contract and are under no obligation to stay with us. As soon as you notify us of your wish to cancel we’ll start the process of removing our service and notify you on how to remove us as global admins from your system.
You can have this service for any period of time you like. Although we obviously recommend you use this service indefinitely to ensure you’re always protected. However, you’re not tied into any particular length of time, although we do request a months’ notice if you wish to cancel.
By GoCardless direct debit, which is a secure worldwide platform for taking direct debits. You’ll be covered by a full direct debit guarantee.
