Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"At one point, there was a zero-day attack. The Cisco appliance detected it and stopped it, helping us out. We avoided the attack and potential damage.""Because we scan products, and there is a lot of critical data, security is very important in these cases.""It sends us reports, where we can see if there have been attacks, e.g. DDoS. If so, we can switch to a clean IP.""It integrates with Active Directory and we can limit specific users to using specific applications.""I can customize the configuration and policies.""It blocks bulk marketing messages, graymail, spam, and provides advanced malware protection.""The most valuable features are protection against ransomware and spam.""The user interface was quite friendly, it was quite easy to use, unlike some other Cisco products. Anybody could use it. You don't have to be familiar with IT to be able to handle navigating it."

"It is really important for large companies to have the brand protection that is provided by Agari.""If spam or some kind of malicious email gets past Mimecast and gets into our email environment, we can go into Agari and we can search for it."

More Agari Pros »

"The product is good. To date, we have not faced any challenges.""The piece that is most valuable from the Mimecast standpoint will be the sandboxing feature.""It's really quite user-friendly. In terms of technical superiority and the product itself, there are no complaints. It is really cutting edge."

Cons
"I would like them to add some clustering or high availability features.""The initial setup was complex because I have two sites with physical clusters.""The hardware is not up to the mark. Two to three times a year we have complete downtime.""The graphical user interface is not user-friendly like other vendors. I find it very difficult at times to find some options on the UI.""I would like to see sandboxing for email, where suspicious emails received by the system are analyzed through online services.""The user interface needs some improvement to become more user-friendly. The graphics could be better. It's designed more for a technical user rather than a business user.""We didn't get any malware, but a few phishing emails, maybe one or two, slipped in.""One of the things that Cisco could improve on with IronPort is the support. Cisco doesn't really have enough engineers who have full, hands-on knowledge of IronPort. Knowledge of it is not something you can find easily compared to other security appliances."

"Some customers in the financial sector do not like the cloud solution because they don't want data to be transferred to a US-based cloud."

More Agari Cons »

"The price could be better, it should be reduced.""The detection rates are an area for improvement.""We have subscribed to an archival service, and yet, when we have to get our data out, we have to pay a fee to get our own data. They charge an extraction fee."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We do annual licensing for Cisco Secure Email Gatewayand SMA together, and possibly SmartNet support. Packaged together, the cost is just under $38,000.""In addition to the standard licensing, there is a cost for SMARTnet as well.""Pricing depends on your environment and which model you want to buy.""Licensing costs depend on how many users there are. It could range between $5 and $7 per month, per user.""The license was not per user, the license model was per feature. You could choose anti-virus, anti-spam, etc. It was feature-based and charged yearly.""There were no other costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""We were using Proofpoint and then we switched to Cisco... reportability was one of the main reasons we switched, but the biggest one was cost. If you can get an equivalent functionality for a better price it's wise to do so. That's what our primary decision came down to: We could get equivalent functionality at a lower price point.""It is not that costly. We pay for the solution through a contractor and pay an annual fee."

More Cisco Secure Email Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of the licensing is based on the volume of email.""The pricing depends on the number of users; per how many mailboxes you have, but they're pretty negotiable with that, too."

More Agari Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's an expensive solution.""The licensing costs are per-user for the product that you get with them."

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.

Agari Enterprise Protect focuses on stopping identity deception, which is part of every targeted email attack. Using a combination of trust analytics, data science and visibility of the Agari Email Trust Platform into 10 billion emails a day, we allow only email from your unique set of trusted businesses, partners and employees to be delivered. With Agari, you escape the reactive approach of “looking for the bad” to stop different types of email threats. Agari builds a unique model of what is good and trusted that attackers cannot evade.

Mimecast’s Advanced Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection uses multiple, sophisticated, detection engines and a diverse set of threat intelligence sources to protect email from spam, malware, phishing, and targeted attacks delivered as a 100% cloud-based service.
