Cybercriminals increasingly take advantage of times of crisis to launch targeted cyber attacks on companies. Email is an easy way to get in. Mail Security’s basic protection stops you receiving large amounts of spam and viruses. However, it is essential to install Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) in order to attain the high level of security that is currently required. This is the only way to protect yourself with confidence against targeted, sophisticated cryptotrojan, ransomware and phishing attacks. Swisscom Mail Security can be used in combination with your own mail server as well as Microsoft 365 and is offered as a cloud-based solution.


Comprehensive security for all mail servers and Microsoft 365 with the cloud solution

The cloud-based Mail Security solution is quick and easy to implement as part of your system and provides maximum protection against spam and malware. Advanced threats can be reliably blocked with sandboxing. Whether you use your own mail server or the new option to use Exchange Online from Microsoft 365, you’ll get top security from a single provider. Reliably protect your Microsoft cloud services and Outlook users from cyber attacks with 365 Total Protection.

Don’t give malware a chance: reliably fend off attacks with spam and virus filters

Spam and virus filters check your incoming and outgoing emails for spam, phishing and viruses. Emails pass through a multi-layer filtering system and mail servers are protected against DDoS attacks. The Hornetsecurity spam filter service has the highest detection rates on the market, eliminating 99.9% of spam and 99.9% of viruses. Swisscom’s service saves your employees the time-consuming task of clearing spam.

Protect yourself against sophisticated attacks with Advanced Threat Protection

Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) from Hornetsecurity analyses your emails even more closely by opening attachments and links in a secure sandbox and checking for malicious code. It therefore recognises harmful content such as ransomware, and blended and targeted attacks. ATP also checks emails for new and known attack patterns to detect and prevent information theft. The Swisscom service therefore provides all-round protection for your email systems.

Keep your Microsoft 365 applications safe and work worry-free with Outlook etc.

Do you already work with Microsoft 365 in your business and want to fully protect your company data? 365 Total Protection is designed for Microsoft 365 applications and reliably protects your Microsoft cloud services from spam, viruses, and targeted attacks. 365 Total Protection Business and 365 Protection Enterprise give you two individually tailored packages to choose from.


Swisscom recommends that all companies with medium to high security requirements use an additional email security solution. In Microsoft 365, you can easily enable Mail Security before starting the service. This provides increased protection and additional functions are also available.
