Why do I need SMX 365 and Microsoft 365?
Microsoft 365 offers great protections, but it isn’t foolproof – customers still report high degrees of spam, malware and other forms of attack according to the Secure Email Gateway market quadrant report.
That’s why it is best practice to deploy a third-party gateway in front of it. While other gateways disable Microsoft 365 Exchange Online and Advanced Threat Protection (EOP/ATP), SMX 365 complements them. This means you get more from your investment in Microsoft 365 and true dual-layer security, plus specialist service and local threat knowledge from SMX.
Will SMX 365 cost more?
For some, yes – although the increase is minuscule when compared to the average cost of a BEC – $159k. For others, the subscription price may reduce or remain unchanged.
