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

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."

"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."

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.

Valimail Defend, based on Valimail's IDEA platform, is the only automated, identity-based solution for reliable inbound impersonation protection. Unlike other solutions that generate lots of false alarms and expose your organization’s PII (Personally Identifiable Information), Valimail provides the strongest protection against lookalike-domain and friendly-from attacks without accessing the contents of email messages. Other security solutions increase risk and potential liability because they essentially take a copy of your email outside the organization to read the content and attempt to identify behavioral patterns, keywords, or other tipoffs that an email may be fake. Valimail Defend is the only identity-based solution that does not access PII.
