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

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.
Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG) offers cyber-attack protection and outbound data loss prevention for secure email collaboration. With its legacy in the MIMEsweeper for SMTP technology, the Clearswift SEG incorporates the latest in inbound threat protection (Sophos and/or Kaspersky AV), a multi-layer spam defence mechanism, multiple encryption options, deep content inspection control on size and types of attachments and Adaptive Redaction features.
Secure G Suite isolates emailed links and attachments to protect against phishing attacks or malicious websites. It is built on our Global Cloud Proxy, which includes global low latency peering on the Internet backbone for the best G Suite user experience.
Secure G Suite relies on two key technologies, Cloud Proxy and our Isolation Core. Our cloud proxy help businesses adopt a direct-to-Internet architecture by pointing all traffic to a single location on the internet that we then secure. Our Isolation Core prevents email-based attacks by opening documents in the cloud and safely rendering the content to the end-device.
