Top Answer: The anti-spam features are excellent on the email firewalls.
Top Answer: The pricing is relative; it's not a fixed amount, so it's hard to discuss exact numbers.
Top Answer: The search functionality is quite small. It could be a bit more in-depth. Right now, it's a bit simple. The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features.

Overview

Old school Security Awareness Training is static. It’s a one-time event without follow-up. KnowBe4's Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training starts with a baseline test to show the actual Phish-prone percentage of your users. Then it steps users through effective, interactive, on-demand browser-based training. As step three, you send frequent simulated phishing attacks to your employees to reinforce the training. This last feature, frequent simulated phishing attacks (we recommend at the very least once a month) really creates a change in behavior.

Proofpoint Email Protection stops malware and non-malware threats such as impostor email (also known as email fraud). Deployed as a cloud service or on-premises, it provides granular filtering to control bulk "graymail" and other unwanted email. And business continuity capabilities keep email communications flowing, even when your email server fails.
