In order to effectively implement Outlook Web Access (OWA) and allow employees to have seamless access to email, you must provide external access to users. This, of course, creates a security weakness in your network because of open ports. Your senior administrator wants you to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of implementing OWA and answer the following questions:
- Do the benefits of implementing OWA outweigh the security concerns? Why or Why not?
- What port does OWA use by default? Can this port be changed? What issues may arise from changing the port? What measures do you recommend to mitigate the issues?
- What are your thoughts on the implementation of a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to limit remote access?
