The phishing emails could be improved. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good. I'm happy with the service. We are around twenty users. Some are in finance, some are in a mid-user roles, and some are in other official roles.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not previously use a different solution. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. Implementation took two days. We needed two people for the deployment. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is high, but it is corporate's decision.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't look at any other solutions. All of our campuses use Cisco products. This is why we chose this solution. 

What other advice do I have?

This solution has good security and it's a good product. You can trust Cisco, and there's support as well, which is really good.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
