Hanover, December 21st 2021 – IT Pro, one of UK’s leading technology news and reviews hub for IT professionals, has recently reviewed Hornetsecurity’s 365 Total Protection, naming it a “true enterprise-class email protection service at a price SMBs can afford” and giving it a five-star rating.

365 Total Protection is Hornetsecurity’s flagship product, offering comprehensive protection for Microsoft cloud services. Developed specifically for and seamlessly integrated with Microsoft 365, 365 Total Protection is quick to set up and intuitive to use, ensuring a smooth transition process. “Hornetsecurity claims a 30-second on-boarding process, and we found this to be quite feasible,” says IT Pro.

The entirety of 365 Total Protection is controlled via a user-friendly control panel. The review highlights that “The administrative cloud portal is easy to navigate, opening with a live email-tracking view which is far more informative than the Microsoft 365 reporting service.”

The control panel is also used for configuring all Hornetsecurity features, such as content control, allow and deny lists, or a compliance filter. IT Pro put the latter to the test with an outbound rule and found it worked exactly as promised.

Finally, IT Pro dove into Advanced Threat Protection. Hornetsecurity’s ATP protects companies from targeted and individual email attacks such as spear phishing, CEO fraud, or blended attacks, with the use of AI-based targeted fraud forensics, URL rewriting, sandboxing, URL scanning, freezing, and malicious document decryption.

After nearly a month of extensive testing, IT Pro found their emails to be “squeaky clean” and deemed 365 Total Protection a “tough email protection for Microsoft 365 that’s simple to deploy, easy to manage and very affordable”.

“We are very excited to receive such a glowing review from UK’s leading destinations of choice for business and IT decision makers,” said Dr. Ing. Yvonne Bernard, CTO at Hornetsecurity. “We continuously strive to build products that are both competent and intuitive, making email security a smooth sailing for our users. The review from IT Pro shows that we are on the right track.”
