We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You're going to get what you pay for. If you're not willing to pay the price of Cisco, you're not going to get a product that's as good as Cisco. I don't think Cisco is overpriced, because for the last two years I've been comparing it to Microsoft and Cisco has been cheaper and given us more features.""In my previous organization, avoiding four instances of CryptoLocker within an estimated six month period is approximately $600,000 in lost time and effort. Our five year cost was about a million dollars, and the four outages that we had equated to 65 percent of that five year cost.""The licensing was all transferred.""Compared to Cisco's on-prem service, the cost is the same, but you don't have to pay for the hardware and you don't have to maintain the system, as far as upgrades and hardware failures are concerned. It is cheaper to operate on their cloud service than it is to operate with their on-prem service.""Cisco Secure Email and the support are priced well. It's not cheap, but there are other solutions that offer less and cost so much. For example, Microsoft is more expensive than Cisco.""There are additional fees for adding features.""At times, we feel the pricing is a bit too high, but then, there is also room for discounts. We enjoy a lot of discounts, and that is why we are still with them. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."

Overview

Customers of all sizes face the same daunting challenge: email is simultaneously the most important business communication tool and the leading attack vector for security breaches. Cisco Email Security enables users to communicate securely and helps organizations combat Business Email Compromise (BEC), ransomware, advanced malware, phishing, spam, and data loss with a multilayered approach to security.

  • Governance - it has CISO Dashboard, enforces industry compliance regulations and standards, adheres to NIST 800-171, HIPAA, GDPR, FISMA, FedRAMP and more, granular policy controls to enforce security and compliance standards, detailed audit logging enables data governance and compliance.
  • Security - it has an on-premise, private cloud, hybrid or FedRAMP deployment options, AES-256 encryption at rest and TLS 1.2 in transit, integration tailored to your security infrastructure.
  • Simplicity - manages and sends files from MS Office and MS Office 365 apps, enables users to work within secure email channels.
  • Integration - get control of shadow IT cloud storage such as Dropbox and Google Drive, share enterprise content from network file shares and ECM systems, enforces compliance over OneDrive sharing with external parties.

Phishing attacks remain the primary cybersecurity threat to organizations of all sizes. Existing defenses struggle with these highly focused and sophisticated campaigns. Users are constantly lured into falling for phishing baits, leading to massive financial damage and data loss. The speed, variety, and cunning of these attacks underscore the urgent need for a new, advanced platform to address them. Area 1 Horizon, a cloud-based service, deploys in minutes and stops phishing attacks across all traffic vectors—email, web, or network.
