Advanced Malware Protection feature works very well, and the solution provides SDF, DKIM, DMARC, and encryption

What is our primary use case?

We are an internet service provider with over 1,000 customers. All our customers need a reliable solution for email security and this solution from Cisco helps us to implement the customers' needs and to offer the security the customers want. We are using all the appliances on premises. They are virtual appliances only. We are not using the cloud because we own our data center.

Pros and Cons

  • "I love the Advanced Malware Protection feature. It works very well... The appliance has more security such as SDF, DKIM, DMARC, and encryption."
  • "We have been struggling in the last month with Cisco encryption and with the S/MIME encryption. I don't know if it is an issue on our side or if these features of the solution are not working very well."

Good encryption for email security that protects the network

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for email security. We have both on-premises and cloud versions.

Pros and Cons

  • "The encryption features are most valuable to us."
  • "I've not been able to use more than two domains in the back end. I like to view logs for the different domains. If I add any other domain I'm not able to get a proper cPanel for that domain. I am talking about the login factors. I'm not able to see logs for different domains in a different Window. Basically, it's an issue in the login process."

What other advice do I have?

From my experience, this tool is able to protect the network. I would definitely recommend this solution. I would rate it as nine out of ten.
