Global email security and backup provider, Hornetsecurity, announced a major push into several different regions across the world, with the signing of new distributors and partnerships, expanding Hornetsecurity’s established presence in Europe, the United States and Latin America.
In the Philippines and Saudi Arabia, the signing of distributors WSI and S2 will see Hornetsecurity’s capabilities support more businesses in limiting cybersecurity issues. EMT was appointed as the distributor of Hornetsecurity solutions in the Middle East. In Eastern Europe, software distributors ED&R Polska in Poland and PBCom in the Czech Republic were selected because of their significant Microsoft presence. In Australia, Datastor Australia has expanded its portfolio from Altaro backup solutions for Microsoft 365 to the full range of Hornetsecurity cyber solutions, adding email cloud security and compliance into the mix.
These agreements, covering more than 10 countries, take Hornetsecurity’s flagship 365 Total Protection suite and 365 Total Backup deeper into their respective Microsoft communities.
Colin Wright, VP, of ROW, Hornetsecurity, said, “In signing these agreements, we have made a significant expansion commitment into APAC and Eastern Europe. Microsoft retains significant dominance in the region, so it makes sense that our complementary next-gen email security, backup and compliance solutions should grow alongside as the number one third-party provider. To date, we’ve focused largely on Western Europe and the Americas, but now we have a dedicated team to roll out Hornetsecurity into APAC and we are finding initial demand really exciting.”
From a partner perspective, 365 Total Backup enables managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs) to provide backup and recovery services for Microsoft 365 mailboxes, Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint. They can take backups and manage them through a multi-tenant, cloud-based control panel. 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup combines this functionality with email security that protects against spam, viruses, phishing and ransomware; as well as providing Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), email signatures and disclaimers, automated email continuity and legally compliant email archiving.
Daniel Hofmann, CEO, of Hornetsecurity, explained, “Through these new appointments, we can offer a great market opportunity to more partners globally. They can now bring their customers to Microsoft 365 in a secure, safe and compliant mode, through our next-gen solutions. We also provide them with the unique benefit of being able to back up the data shared via User Chats in Microsoft Teams as well as Group Channel Conversations, something other vendors are not able to do. This strong market position gives our partners a compelling advantage.”
