Hanover (2021-11-19) – Hornetsecurity is one of the fastest growing technology companies with a growth rate of 125.89 %, winning the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2021. This is the sixth time Hornetsecurity has won the award since 2014. Deloitte recognizes companies that build their basis for success on new technologies and master the challenge of balancing between growth, expansion, and adaptation.

With COVID and the rise of remote work, we have seen more than ever the importance technology holds in enabling and improving our workdays. Emails in particular are central to remote collaboration within and between organizations of all sizes. Sensing an opportunity, cybercriminals of all types have stepped up their assaults. It’s no wonder then that cybersecurity services like Hornetsecurity’s are facing unprecedented demand.

“While digital technologies were still a nice-to-have a few years ago, the picture is now very different: Digital technologies are now indispensable to most companies because they make companies fit for the future and provide them with innovative tools to successfully meet the challenges of our time. With their products and services, the winners show how innovations and entrepreneurial success can be combined,” says Dr. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Industry Lead Technology, Media and Telecommunications at Deloitte.

The key to Hornetsecurity’s success was the 365 Total Protection suite which is the only solution on the market to cover all aspects of security, compliance, and backup for Microsoft 365. Businesses can choose from various features to fit their needs and enjoy state-of-the-art email security that provides spam, virus, phishing, and ransomware protection, as well as email signatures and disclaimers. They can also benefit from Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), automated email continuity and legally compliant email archiving. Businesses can even opt for backup and recovery for endpoints and Microsoft 365 data in mailboxes, Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint.

“We are very excited to win the Fast 50 Award for the sixth time,” says Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity. “Hornetsecurity’s rapid growth is a testament to email security and backup services being needed more than ever in today’s world, making our commitment to developing cutting-edge technologies even greater.”
