Professional & reliable – your future email protection.

New platform. More features. Same conditions.

As a customer or partner of Cleanport, you can now benefit from a strong and reliable provider of email security on your side – Hornetsecurity. The cloud security specialists will offer you an ideal protection with their spam and virus filter service. For you, this will not mean a lot of change. On the contrary, by switching to the Hornetsecurity spam filter service, you will have many additional features – for the same price as before.

Complies with legal standards conformity

Hornetsecurity’s services are operated geo-redundantly in ISO-certified data centers on three locations (Hanover, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt). The contractual basis for this is the new Federal Data Protection Act, which is adapted to the European Data Protection Ordinance 2016/679/DS-GVO and which will become effective on 25 May 2018.

Hornetsecurity – Competent. Individual. Local.

As an internationally operating managed service provider with more than ten years of experience, we offer IT security solutions you can seamlessly integrate into your business without additional hardware, software and with minimal effort.

A strong, global thinking partner network and more than 100 competent employees constantly contribute to above-average growth.

Our success is based on our consistent growth in the last years, which has mainly been generated in Europe. Hornetsecurity has systematically targeted its activities at international markets like Asian and Latin America. There are no national borders for us as a cloud security provider.

Starting today, you can benefit from these additional features:

Multi-client management console

The management console serves as a central interface and enables you as a partner and administrator to conveniently deploy, manage and maintain all cloud security services offered by Hornetsecurity. This enables you to keep the effort to a minimum. The cloud-based management console makes it unnecessary to set up your own server.

Newsletter & Infomail Filters

Our infomail filter is focused on the recognition and filtering of newsletters or similar promotional emails. A separate treatment of such emails seems to be useful here, since not every type of newsletter is necessarily to be declared as spam. You can then decide which infomail you would like to read and get it delivered to your inbox with just one click.

Customizable quarantine report

Receive an automated spam report, where you can configure the delivery intervals individually. By this, you customize the delivery of the quarantine report to your personal workflow. Manage your emails directly from the spam report and benefit from less time spent processing quarantined email notifications. You can whitelabel the spam report individually and customize the HTML version so that it fits your corporate design. Find out in our FAQ how you can easily set up whitelabelled spamreports and other templates.

SPF and DKIM check

The Sender Policy Network (SPF) is a method to prevent the falsification of an email’s sender address (spoofing). The administrator of a domain provides a TXT record on the DNS. These records contain the IP address or host name of the servers legitimized to distribute emails.  When receiving an email, the recipient compares the information in the header with the TXT record. In case these information do not match, the email is declined. The verification of the email sender can be limited to your own domain or applied to all sender domains.


The Hornetsecurity Control Panel provides you as a partner with a platform to easily oversee the incoming and outgoing email traffic of all your customers. You can generate detailed statistics and create export files.

Antivirus engines

Next to a range of sophisticated in-house-developed engines and a modified ClamAV, Hornetsecurity trusts G DATA as their technology partner. Additionally, customers can complementarily book engines from Sophos and AVIRA. Of course, as AVIRA partner or customer you will have the AVIRA engine activated by default.

Free 24/7 support for our partners

Support for our partners has top priority – around the clock, 365 days a year. In addition to free training courses, extensive work materials such as data sheets, whitepapers, logos and presentations, our specialists from the customer relations department will support you in setting up and configuring our services. And of course we will also be happy to answer any questions you may have when selling our products.

Outlook Add-In

In the business world, Outlook has become the leading email client. It is therefore obvious that Hornetsecurity offers an add-in, which is seamlessly integrated into Outlook, for both the Spamfilter Service as well as Aeternum our email archiving solution. Using the menu bar, users can easily report spam emails, request a spam report or archive emails. The application is intuitive and easy to use even without logging into the control panel. Partners can whitelabel the Outlook add-in to adapt it to the company’s look.

TLS encryption

Next to an opportunistic TLS encryption, partners can enforce rule-based TLS for the outgoing and incoming email traffic. As a plus, Hornetsecurity offers S/MIME as well as PGP encryption.


Convenient management

You can authenticate and maintain stored users via the Hornetsecurity Control Panel or alternatively via the LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) connection. The LDAP configuration can be used for logging on to the control panel, the web filter service and the spam filter service. If you need to import your blacklists and whitelists or a list of users or domains, we offer you additional support. This allows for maximum convenience in administration.

Mail relaying

Hornetsecurity can relay the outgoing email traffic on your behalf.  Your emails willl be scanned for viruses and you will be protected from so called backscatter spam.

Strong commitment and constant development is important to us – reliability is our strength

Hornetsecurity is reliable, fair and straightforward to use. As a partner, you become an integral part of the company’s development.
