Netsurion Open XDR dashboard will help you to visualize the malicious activities happening mail servers. It can even create the report which helps to collection malicious activities happening on mail servers on time bases which help you to review the malicious activities. Netsurion Open XDR CIM will help you to correlate the malicious activities with another log source like a virus, spam events, etc.
