We are currently using two different email security products, which is how we are able to identify the pros and cons of Cisco Email Security. We use a similar product called FireEye. It can detect based on sandboxing. Anything bad that it sees, it will detect. It is not based on file extension or file types. Recently, we have been able to block with it using some type of file extensions or hash. View full review »

Network Security Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
After using ESA we used Trend Micro. The difference between them is just the vendor. There's really no difference. Same approach. It's the same technology. I would say Trend Micro is more granular. But overall, It's the same technology. I don't think one is better than the other. Who you buy from depends on marketing. View full review »

We looked at two or three different vendors. One of the solutions that we looked at was a virtual Linux-based appliance. We did evaluate that and a proof of concept around it. However, it wasn't as robust as Cisco, as far as features and high availability. View full review »

I am familiar with McAfee and Symantec to some extent. But we have not used those solutions in our production environment. I can't say much about specific differences between the solutions, but Cisco is more stable and we have not faced any issues with its detection capabilities that would make us look at other solutions.
