Cybersecurity Company GreatHorn Announces Partnership With Microsoft

NEW YORK CITY, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) - GreatHorn, the world's leading cybersecurity platform for detecting and preventing spear phishing attacks, announced a partnership with Microsoft at today's Techstars NYC Demo Day, along with direct availability of their platform on the Azure Marketplace.

"Office 365 and Azure are seeing amazing adoption rates, and engaging with Microsoft to help protect against advanced communication fraud and spear phishing attacks within those platforms was a natural fit," stated Kevin O'Brien, the company's CEO and co-founder.

"Especially in large, regulated businesses where security is a priority, Office 365 and Azure are being selected as the cloud platform of choice more and more often. We are tremendously excited to be able to bring GreatHorn's realtime protection to that growing universe of Office customers, and being able to announce our work with Microsoft on stage at Techstars was an amazing opportunity to underscore our belief in this ecosystem."

The Boston-based cybersecurity company combined the Microsoft announcement with an overview of their platform's rapid growth. According to company executives, the GreatHorn technology -- which merges an expert detection system for fraudulent activity inside of cloud communication channels with a dynamic machine learning platform that can catch even the most subtle attempts to deceive business users -- now defends against data breaches for over 6,500 cloud mailbox users.

"Microsoft has a commitment to providing our customers with a secure, compliant, and innovative set of cloud technologies," noted Tereza Nemessanyi, EIR at Microsoft, and responsible for Microsoft's business with startups across the East Coast. "GreatHorn's combination of world-class security and easy deployment -- often taking under 15 minutes to go live -- is a natural fit with Office 365 and Azure, and we're very excited to be working with them to continue to build on the superior security offerings Microsoft provides to its customers."

GreatHorn makes it easy for businesses to protect against account compromise, reduce the risk of fraudulent wire transfers and financial transactions, and meet regulatory requirements when using cloud communication systems like Office 365. By combining their deep analytics with a massive dataset of over 16 million analyzed mail objects, GreatHorn's security offerings operate at scale, but require no changes to mail routing or network topology, a huge benefit for companies who have embraced the productivity gains that come with cloud communication systems.
