“Microsoft Office 365 is currently the most popular gateway for hackers to attack sensitive company data. Studies show that cyberattacks on Office have multiplied within a few years,” says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN). “Vade Secure offers the best possible protection here. By integrating the security solution into our cybersecurity platform, we make it available to our worldwide Platform-as-a-Service- partners via our ALSO Cloud Marketplace”.

Vade Secure for Office 365 is an award-winning email security solution that provides comprehensive, automated protection before, during, and after attacks. The solution uses artificial intelligence, including machine learning mechanisms patented in the USA, to detect unknown, highly targeted threats, such as phishing, spear phishing, malware, and ransomware.

Vade Secure integrates seamlessly with Office 365 via an API-based architecture and complements Office 365 native protection against advanced email threats. Thanks to its native integration, Vade Secure for Office 365 is easy to deploy (no MX changes), easy to use (no external quarantine), and easy to manage, making it attractive to both MSPs and their clients.

“Partnering with ALSO is key to expand our international business and accelerate our capacity to access new markets and MSPs,” said Frederic Braut, Senior Vice President EMEA at Vade. “Our solution is perfectly suited to the needs of enterprises in the mid-market business segment. Through the ALSO Cloud Marketplace, we’re offering to MSPs a solution easy to deploy that allows them to bring value to their customers and to profitably grow their business.”

With the integration of Vade Secure into the existing cybersecurity platform, ALSO extends its offer of sophisticated, effective and globally recognized security solutions. For years, the technology provider has been investing in the development of the platform, which also provides products from Symantec, Kaspersky, Sophos, IBM, Microsoft, Cisco and Fortinet, among others. The new addition is the next important step with which ALSO is further expanding its portfolio for the comprehensive equipping of modern IT workplaces, so-called IT Seats. Security is becoming a central issue in the face of constantly growing threats. The equipment is either provided directly by ALSO or by its partners.
