Traps and Exchange Servers

We are planning to deploy Traps to our Exchange servers. I know that traditional AV can wreak havok on Exchange servers if they do not have scan exclusions. I also know that Traps is much different in it's method or providing protection. Does anyone in the community have any experience running Traps on an Exchange server? If you do I would love to hear your feedback as to performance and any policy tuning you may have done. Thanks!

Hi there,

 

We are running Traps on an Exchange 2010 environment without any issues. No special requirements or provisions. 

 

Our environment is as follows: 2 x CAS/HT, 6 x Mailbox servers in a DAG and 1 x Mailbox server for journaling. All running in Windows Server 2008 R2.

 

Just make sure you verdict your servers before deployment and there should be no surprises :)

 

Kind regards.

Agree, and have had a similar experience. Deployed Traps into an Exchange 2016 environment and have had no issues so far however we did hash and verdict all of the executables on the exchange servers before we activated Traps. No surprises! 

 

If anyone needs to do this, I found these docs helpful:

Note: if you're not configuring a VDI image you can skip the steps about marking the image as VDI, etc.

I was also wondering about this and Windows Servers in general.  Thanks for posting.
