Avira Managed Email Security customers will benefit from Hornetsecurity

The Avira Managed E-Mail Security customers and the Cleanport brand, which originates mainly from the BeNeLux countries, will use Hornetsecurity managed spam filter service in the future

Tettnang, 15.02.2018b - Hornetsecurity has been selected to take over the Avira Managed Email Security (AMES) including Cleanport. The Avira Business Customers division is abandoning the business of cloud e-mail security solutions for strategic reasons and is focusing more strongly on its core business, the marketing of antivirus endpoint products for business customers. With this step, Hornetsecurity significantly expands its leading market position in the field of managed e-mail security in Europe.

The customers and resellers of the Avira products Cleanport and Managed E-Mail Security are transferred to the Managed Spam Filter Service of Hornetsecurity. This enables them to benefit from numerous functional enhancements, the highest detection rates and access to additional services from the product portfolio of the Hanover-based e-mail security specialists.

To ensure a smooth transition, Avira and Hornetsecurity have worked closely together over and made the necessary technical and organizational preparations. Resellers were informed before Christmas about a platform change, free webcasts were held and all configuration data was automatically migrated to the new system.  As a result, partners and customers will have no expense, but will immediately benefit from the advantages of Hornetsecurity services.

With the acquisition of Cleanport and Avira Managed E-Mail Security, we have come one step closer to our goal of becoming a leading European provider in the market for cloud-based e-mail security solutions. ", says Daniel Blank, Managing Director of Hornetsecurity. In the Benelux countries, we will thus immediately become a leading player. Together with the newly acquired resellers, we will further expand our market share.

With Hornetsecurity, we have found a company where we are sure that our existing partners and customers of Cleanport and Avira Managed E-Mail Security are in very good hands," adds Christian Milde at Avira.

The existing sales partners of Avira services also benefit from the new cooperation: they can participate in Hornetsecurity's multi-level partner program. Many sales, technical and marketing support and active partner management ensure that the partnership benefits both sides. The harmonious, well-engineered Hornetsecurity product portfolio also opens up a number of new sales opportunities for them.

With the Managed Spamfilter Service Hornetsecurity not only protects e-mail traffic but also secures it at the same time. Hornetsecurity leads the market with guaranteed 99.9% spam detection rate and 99.99% virus detection. Moreover, the administration and use of the service is very simple. In addition, Hornetsecurity Advanced Threat Protection offers comprehensive protection against sophisticated attacks such as extortion software, CEO-Fraud or Spearphishing, which cannot be detected by classic defense mechanisms. Aeternum, the e-mail archiving solution and an encryption service round off the range of services.
