365 Total Protection

Hornetsecurity 365 Total Protection – specifically designed for Microsoft Office 365 – adds deep protection to your customers’ Microsoft Services. Users of Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium or Microsoft Office 365 Business Essentials are comprehensively protected in their communication, so that sensitive company data remains secure. The automatic e-mail archiving of incoming and outgoing emails is DSGVO- and GDPdU-compliant. All domains, mailboxes and groups of a customer are transferred directly from Office 365 to the Hornetsecurity Control Panel – the setup is automated.

  • Microsoft does not back up and restore Microsoft 365 mailboxes and files stored in OneDrive and SharePoint document libraries.
  • Users are responsible for configuring their own data security and compliance requirements.

This includes: 

  • Data classification and user access management
  • Data security and backups
  • End device management

365 Total Backup

Because Microsoft 365 is a communications system and not a data protection product, it does not include native options for backing up and restoring data. This means that the business, not Microsoft, is responsible for protecting against all types of Microsoft 365 data loss caused by malware, human error, malicious users or system failures. With Hornetsecurity’s 365 Total Backup, customers can relax and automatically back up and restore M365 user and group mailboxes, Teams Chats, SharePoint document libraries, OneDrive business accounts and files on Windows-based endpoints.
