Microsoft is regarded as the major driver of the worldwide migration into the cloud: It has brought the world’s most widely used office suite to the cloud with Microsoft 365, with some 240 million corporate customers using Microsoft 365. These business customers exchange and upload critical and sensitive files daily – a fact that cyber-criminals are well aware of.
Microsoft recently reported a 250% increase in targeted attacks on M365 accounts. It has integrated some security features into M365, but the question you should ask is: Are these measures enough? The truth is you need add another layer of security to enjoy comprehensive security by protecting your users against all kinds of email threats as well as against data loss.
Attackers find it very easy to identify an M365 user, because MX records and auto-discover entries are visible to the public online. It is therefore critical to secure your M365 accounts, since Microsoft’s built-in protection simply is not enough. Hornetsecurity deploys a host of powerful technologies to combat various types of email malware, security breaches and more. An added plus is that it hides Microsoft DNS and MX records, helping to deflect would-be attackers.

Another concern is that company information is created and shared in the form of emails, chats and files within the M365 universe, and this precious data can be lost or damaged. Yet, M365 was not developed to provide data protection. Microsoft provides its customers with a high-performing communications infrastructure, but responsibility for content and data security lies with users and their admins, not Microsoft.
If data loss occurs due to accidental or malicious deletion, ransomware or system and human errors, you must be able to restore your Microsoft 365 data. You must therefore ensure you have a backup solution in place to protect your organization from data loss. Hornetsecurity‘s team of backup specialists have developed a robust, reliable backup and recovery solution which covers mailboxes, Teams Chats, OneDrive business accounts, SharePoint and roaming and on-premise Windows-based user endpoints.
