We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"In the past, whether we got phishing emails or spam emails, they all went into our inbox. Now, the system is set to automatically put all phishing emails or spam-type emails that it doesn't block but suspects that they're suspicious, into the junk email folder. It gives users a way of giving it a second look or a second thought as to whether this is a real email or not, rather than seeing all the emails in their inbox. Now that they see it in their junk email box, they take further consideration and look at the email harder and determine if it is a phishing email."
"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."
"It does a good job for us, and its admin console is easy to use."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"Its administration console is very easy to use. The administration console is absolutely important because you interact with the platform through it."
"It's good, it keeps the spam out."
"Mimecast certainly helped my customers reduce phishing emails."
"In terms of improvement, I would like for some of the reporting to be a little bit more robust. There should be more options for recording and more options for searching. For example, more fields to report against, more search criteria, more date filters, etc. They should also make the searching capability a little bit more flexible."
"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."
"Their support should be improved. They are notorious for sending you to knowledge-based articles rather than actually talking to you, but that is, unfortunately, kind of becoming a trend with everything. In terms of features, I haven't had any complaints. However, I don't like the fact they moved to a paid training subscription model. They used to have a lot of free webinars for training, but they have started to charge for them in the past year."
"As a user, the user interface of the management console could be upgraded, for example."
"Its pricing can be improved. It is a bit expensive."
"The filtering needs more flexibility."
"From an administrative point of view, Mimecast is a little bit cumbersome and difficult. It's not something that the end-user can easily find navigate themselves."
"It's an expensive solution."
"The licensing costs are per-user for the product that you get with them."
"It is a bit expensive."
