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 ESA and 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."

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.

Proofpoint Email Protection stops malware and non-malware threats such as impostor email (also known as email fraud).

And business continuity capabilities keep email communications flowing, even when your email server fails.

The SolarWinds Mail Assure cloud-based email solution is designed to provide security for inbound and outbound email and email archiving. The Intelligent Filtering Engine was created for protection against email malware and continuity should core email go down. The service includes a multitenant web interface to help ensure control and transparency.
