Outlook/Microsoft 365 Addon

Mail Assure’s cloud email security helps users safeguard Microsoft 365 email by adding an additional layer of security and providing Microsoft 365 integration. Protection against threats, always-on continuity, and email archiving for Microsoft 365 enhances your Microsoft 365 experience so you can focus on core business activities.

The easy-to-install Mail Assure Microsoft 365 Addon allows users full control and transparency over their email flows. Users can “train spam” and “train not-spam” from their message window. Messages trained as spam are moved to the user’s trash folder and messages trained as not-spam are automatically moved to the user’s inbox. These actions signal required adjustments to the Mail Assure classification systems. Users can also use Single-Sign-On (SSO) by logging into the Mail Assure web-interface from a button available in their message window.

To benefit from the Mail Assure Microsoft 365 add-in capabilities, users must use Mail Assure’s email security solutions.
