Hosted Email Security

Stop phishing, ransomware, BEC, advanced threats, and spam before
they reach your network

Overview

Email is mission-critical, but email-based threats, including ransomware and Business Email Compromise (BEC), are growing exponentially and it’s difficult to keep up. Even your savviest employees can mistakenly click on a malicious link and expose your enterprise to cybercrime. At the same time, other critical IT projects are demanding your attention, but that doesn’t mean you can afford to neglect email security maintenance and potential targeted attacks.

Trend Micro™ Hosted Email Security™ is a no-maintenance-required solution that delivers continuously updated protection to stop phishing, ransomware, BEC, advanced threats, spam, and malware before they reach your network. It protects Microsoft® Exchange™, Microsoft® Office 365™, Google Gmail, and other hosted and on-premises email solutions.
