Office 365 Email and Data Theft Protection – Hornetsecurity Releases 365 Total Encryption
Users of Microsoft Office 365 are increasingly being targeted by cyber-criminals. Over the past year alone, the number of attacks on users’ email accounts has almost quadrupled. For protection against data theft, unauthorized access or spying, cloud security provider Hornetsecurity is ex-panding its extensive email Security & Compliance Suite, 365 Total Protection with the release of a new security service, 365 Total Encryption. This new level of security for Office 365 users will encrypt the content of all emails stored in the Microsoft Office 365 cloud.

According to Microsoft’s latest Security Intelligence Report the number of phishing attacks on Office 365 accounts have increased by 250% over the course of a year. 365 Total Encryption encrypts all incoming and stored emails while effectively protecting sensitive data from Cyber-attackers – even if they have taken over the account.

Decryption is only possible by the mailbox owner, who has a private key. Encryption with 365 Total Encryption protects corporate email communications from espionage, unauthorized mailbox access or theft of important corporate information. Even Microsoft doesn’t have access to the content of emails encrypted by 365 Total Encryption.

“It is unavoidable that companies move to the cloud in the short to medium term. If they don’t, they will be left behind in the future”, says Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity. “Nevertheless, companies do not have to waive the protection of their data from unauthorized access. With 365 Total Encryption we offer just that, an easy-to-use and secure solution to protect data stored in Office 365 from spying and theft without limiting usability.”

365 Total Encryption adds essential features to the capabilities of 365 Total Protection while also offering the best possible market-wide protection against the growing threats of spying, data theft and business email compromises. The service works without the installation of software on all common email clients and end devices as well as on the native email clients of iOS and Android.
