Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

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.

SonicWALL Email Security Platform offers powerful protection to keep email threats out. And sensitive data in. With innovative protection techniques for both inbound and outbound email plus unique management tools, the Email Security platform delivers superior email protection today while standing ready to stop the new attacks of tomorrow.

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.
