HTG 360, Vade Secure Partner to Strengthen Anti-Phishing Capabilities for Office 365 Clients
Vade Secure, the global leader in predictive email defense, announced today that it has entered into a reseller agreement with HTG 360, a global MSSP serving mid-to-large enterprise clients in industries such as financial services, insurance, and manufacturing. Through this partnership, HTG 360 will strengthen its end-to-end security offering with the addition of Vade Secure for Office 365, the only anti-phishing solution that’s fully integrated into Office 365 using the Microsoft Graph API.
HTG 360, which has clients in 90 countries worldwide, has seen a sharp increase in the number of phishing, spear phishing, and other email-borne threats. In particular, the company is seeing three times as many phishing attacks targeting Office 365 compared to Exchange on-premises environments. While HTG 360 has other email security tools in its portfolio, the company decided to add Vade Secure for Office 365 after a proof of concept revealed the solution to be easy to deploy, easy to manage, and highly effective against unknown, highly targeted attacks.
“Email security is a top three initiative for nearly every one of our clients, driven by a sharp rise in phishing attacks targeting Office 365 users,” said Chris Ichelson, CEO of HTG 360. “We’re excited to expand our offering with Vade Secure for Office 365. It enables us to offer our Office 365 clients an email security solution that is incredibly easy to deploy, provides a high level of protection and is cost advantageous.”
