Hornetsecurity's 365 Total Protection safeguards users as Microsoft Office embraces the cloud

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- With 365 Total Protection, the cloud security expert Hornetsecurity is launching an industry-wide unique security and compliance suite, which was specially developed for Microsoft Office 365.

When it comes to protecting corporate email communications, Gartner Research predicts that 95% of IT executives will choose cloud solutions for future decisions. The predominant on-premise appliances will almost disappear in the next three years. Microsoft is a major driver of this development, and with Office 365, it offers its customers a collaboration solution from the cloud. Extended features such as MS Teams or Skype are an integral component of the Microsoft Suite, and email functionalities are also covered by the cloud solution.

In the context of cloud transformation, customers have high expectations because they want to maintain their flexibility and require a comprehensive range of functions that meet contractual and legal requirements. This does not concern the email service as such – rather, solutions should be covered around email communication, such as encryption, security gateway, automated signatures, archiving and advanced threat protection. 365 Total Protection is optimally adjusted to these needs and offers a comprehensive package that combines all features in one service.

"System houses and IT managers face new challenges with the increasing distribution of O365. So far, important business applications, such as the central provision of compliant disclaimers and consistent signtures, but also requirements, such as e-mail encryption, have been implemented locally," says Daniel Blank, Managing Director of Hornetsecurity.

"Since the mail servers will now be provided from the cloud as part of O365, service providers and IT managers need new concepts to comply with their security and compliance requirements. In order to secure and complement a cloud service such as Office 365 in the best possible way, such functions and security solutions will also have to be moved to the cloud. This is exactly why Hornetsecurity developed 365 Total Protection."

365 Total Protection is the Security & Compliance Suite from the cloud, for the cloud. With a wide range of 21 business and security features, the new product was specially developed for Microsoft's O365 and can be integrated seamlessly. Users benefit from a particularly uncomplicated onboarding: Within three clicks, Office merges with 365 Total Protection.

In addition, there are many companies that are looking for a hybrid solution because they want to transfer individual departments to Office 365 or maintain a coexistent operation. With 365 Total Protection, Hornetsecurity supports multi-step migration.

365 Total Protection takes away companies' concerns about O365 privacy and compliance policies and is the first product ever to help secure this path. On October 9, Hornetsecurity debuted for the public all of the services and features that come with 365 Total Protection at the it-sa exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany.
