Easy to install and secures users against URL relay attacks, spam, and malicious attachments

What is our primary use case?

We are a technical services company and we work with many different solutions, including the Sophos Email Appliance. We currently have a couple of customers who use Sophos. This solution is for the secure delivery of inbound email. There are various use cases including checking email against spam, DNS or configuration related issues, and spoofing-related security issues. It also checks URL in emails, as well as for malicious attachments. All of these things are checked before the email is delivered to the user.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the URL relay protection because it protects users from phishing attacks."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that every organization should select an email security appliance, based on their requirements. Even if they are using Microsoft Office 360 Protection, they should still be using a cloud-based email security solution because there are some specific security rules and controls that are applied through these appliances. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
