Reliable email filtering and security that functions and learns at a high level

What is our primary use case?

We use the product for spam filtering and as a second layer of filtering for Office 365. I use it for encrypting emails and monitoring all emails that have sensitive data and policies are applied there as well. In addition to having it as a user portal for spam emails and quarantined emails, users can manage their spam, their quarantined emails, and whether they want an address on the blacklist or the white list. Our security department is responsible for all emails that are quarantined by the system so they are monitored. There is two-way communication — not just one way — and FortiMail is… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "This is a solid email monitoring and security system that learns and maintains a two-way dialog with email system administrators."
  • "The product could be improved by extending reporting tools and adding options for notification."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, I recommend this solution to other people. But in addition, I recommend a few additional steps before just accepting a recommendation. First, they should do a POC (proof of concept). Taking the time to do this is one of the main reasons that will motivate you either to choose a product or not based on actually evaluating if the solution can do what you need it to do. Next, evaluate the reputation. By this, I don't mean to look at what people are saying who are using the product in discussion forums but to take a look at the market itself.

Good pricing, offers an easy setup, and quite stable

Pros and Cons

  • "The deployment is very easy. It's quite straightforward."
  • "The solution's technical support is slow and unresponsive. You need to book time in order to get support."

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have any business relationship with the company. I'm still working with this solution and testing its capabilities. There's still so much to learn about its offerings. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate it at an eight. If they had better deployments for email security, I might rate them higher.
