Hornetsecurity has released two new tools to combat growing cyber threats: the QR Code Analyzer and Secure Links. These launches are in response to an increase in fake QR codes and the ongoing threat of phishing, which accounts for 40% of all cyber threats.
Hornetsecurity has also released a new automated mailbox migration solution that enables partners to deploy and operate Microsoft 365 in the cloud for their customers in an efficient and secure manner – while remaining secure from cyberattacks. Furthermore, it has simplified its partner program to allow partners to work equally and centrally on projects and MSP business.
Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity stated, “Hornetsecurity is committed to pre-empting and responding to new cybersecurity threats and customer concerns. Phishing attacks and fake QR codes are on the increase, so we are pleased to launch unique technologies that will combat these ever-growing threats. The QR Code Analyzer and Secure Links tools will benefit businesses by fighting cybersecurity attacks in a safe, reliable and cost-effective way.”
According to research from Hornetsecurity’s Security Lab, email-borne QR codes are being used by cybercriminals to acquire sensitive information. With the introduction of its QR Code Analyzer, Hornetsecurity is enhancing its Advanced Threat Protection and 365 Total Protection Suite for Microsoft 365 in order to combat this most recent threat. When scanned, this technology determines whether QR codes lead to harmful websites.
The introduction of Hornetsecurity’s “Secure Links” functionality will also aid in reducing cyberattacks, particularly attempts at ransomware. This new service secure-checks each email link before allowing the recipient to open it without risk. Businesses and their employees can feel more secure knowing that their email communications are secure thanks to both new technologies.
Daniel Blank , COO HornetsecuritY commented, “Hornetsecurity has listened to our partners’ needs, which has led to the launch of our efficient and safe Mailbox Migration Tool, at the same time as our new partner program is rolled out.
This launch package is just the start of what will be a busy 2023 for Hornetsecurity as we monitor, learn and respond to new sophisticated cyberattacks, and continue to keep our customers’ data safe from ever-present threats.”
The Mailbox Migration Tool was created in response to the difficulties that Hornetsecurity partners had in transferring mailboxes from on-premises to Microsoft 365 cloud. This new offering enables Hornetsecurity partners to automatically migrate customers in a secure, efficient, and time-saving manner, allowing them to provide peace of mind by offering full Microsoft 365 security via 365 Total Protection.
Hornetsecurity has also simplified its partner program. The newly revised program is intended to unify partner levels and includes both managed service (MSP) and project business. These updates reduce entry barriers, allowing partners to provide Hornetsecurity’s services with little effort and investment.
