The new Market Guide for Email Security from leading research and advisory company Gartner has listed Hornetsecurity as Representative Vendor.

With the Gartner Market Guide for Email Security, analysts Mark Harris, Peter Firstbrook and Ravisha Chugh provide comprehensive guidance on how to set up email security to meet changing circumstances. Especially because of the dramatic increase of phishing attacks, the rise of business email compromise (BEC) and the ongoing migration to cloud security, security managers need to ensure that the solutions they choose are appropriate.

We believe that the Market Guide for Email Security makes an important contribution to improving IT security by providing CISOs with an in-depth analysis of current challenges and solutions,” says Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity.
Further, we feel being named by Gartner as a Representative Vendor confirms our strategy to protect companies from cybercrime with advanced, cloud-based, AI-driven services.

Hornetsecurity has been focused on cloud computing since its inception in 2007. The product portfolio covers all important areas of email security, including spam and virus filters, legally compliant archiving and encryption, as well as defense against BEC, CEO fraud and ransomware.
Services like 365 Total Protection also integrate seamlessly with Microsoft 365 to provide comprehensive protection. In addition to offering high-level protection for customers’ IT infrastructures, Hornetsecurity solutions stand out by being exceptionally user friendly and easy to manage, and for their delivery of high-level transparency and control.
