German customers of Avira Managed E-Mail Security and Cleanport customers located in the Belgium, Netherlands & Luxemburg (BeNeLux) regions are switching to the Hornetsecurity Managed Spamfilter Service Hornetsecurity began the transition of Avira spam filter business customers today. Avira is a German vendor and highly respected industry player in the arena of anti-virus software solutions. Hornetsecurity is now further extending their leading European market position in the managed security services with this merger. Based on their company strategy moving forward, Avira has chosen to stop selling its cloud email security solution and focus on their core business of commercial antivirus products for business customers. Avira and Clearport customers have started their changeover to Hornetsecurity’s Managed Spamfilter Service. This switch is a huge win for these customers as they now have access to Hornetsecurity’s market-leading spam detection rates and the ability to utilize the full-solution portfolio from the cloud security experts from Hannover, Germany.
To guarantee a smooth transition, Avira and Hornetsecurity have collaborated to work out the details of the technical and organizational preparations needed to move the process forward quickly and efficiently. All effected resellers were informed of the platform change before Christmas. These reseller partners were invited to participate in cost-free training webinars and then migrated automatically to Hornetsecurity’s services.
This will significantly ease the conversion process for all partners and customers and they will be able to immediately start benefiting from the Hornetsecurity services. “By taking over Cleanport and Avira Managed E-Mail Security, we made a huge step towards our goal to become the leading European provider of cloud-based email security solutions”, said Daniel Blank, CEO of Hornetsecurity. “Especially in the BeNeLux countries we will become a leading provider with this deal. Together with all new resellers we will be able to continuously increase our market share.” „With Hornetsecurity we found a company, where we can be sure that our existing Cleanport and Avira Managed E-Mail Security partners and customers will be in very good hands”, adds Christian Milde, Vice President Strategic Alliances at Avira. The existing sales partners of Avira services will also benefit from this new collaboration by participating in Hornetsecurity’s multilevel partner program. The program features extensive support for all sales, marketing, and technical support activities as well as active partner management that provides a mutual benefit for both sides. The highly developed product portfolio of Hornetsecurity also offers many new sales opportunities for these newly acquired reseller partners.
