FireEye’s The Email Laundry: End of Life Migration Plan for Partners


FireEye plans to end of life The Email Laundry, an email scanning service that the company acquired in 2017.

In order to ensure users have a path forward, FireEye is recommending partners and customers migrate to Hornetsecurity, an email security provider based in Germany.

According to a FireEye spokesperson familiar with the matter:

"FireEye is migrating The Email Laundry’s email scanning service business to Hornetsecurity, an email security provider focused on small and midsize businesses. This enables FireEye to focus on larger enterprise Email Security customers with different requirements. The agreement will have no impact on other FireEye email offerings."

Partners will have until approximately the end of June 2020 to complete customer migrations to Hornetsecurity, the spokesperson adds.

FireEye Business Evolution

FireEye has increasingly focused its business on enterprise-class platform, cloud subscription, managed security and Mandiant consulting services, the company said during a recent earnings call. The company cut about 6 percent of its staff in April 2020,

FireEye has been busy on multiple fronts. The company in January 2020 acquired Cloudvisory to bolster FireEye Helix’s multi-cloud and container security capabilities across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and more.

And in late 2019, the company launched Digital Threat Monitoring service to help organizations detect dark and open web threats.
