Cons
In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more user awareness, such as information about phishing email attacks that have been prevented.The reporting functionality is in major need of improvement.There are a few issues with integration that need to be addressed; this would help make deployment easier for new users.There aren't enough advanced settings. They should offer more advanced options.Reporting could have more options for users to customize desired results.In the advanced version, you have DLP, Data Loss Prevention, but when you buy the standard version, you don't have it.
