Responsive support, saves us time dealing with threats, but the email notifications should be customizable

What is our primary use case?

We have a hybrid Exchange environment with an on-premises email server and also Office 365. We have multiple domains and the challenge was related to the email filter. We were doing a lot of things manually and we wanted a simpler system. As of now, we are only using this product for email. However, in the future, we may implement some of the other modules such as SharePoint, Dropbox, or other services.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the hardware-assisted platform module."
  • "Email alerts should be available in real-time."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this product is that when you use smart products in a smart way, it can save you a lot of time with respect to productivity. This in turn allows us to look at how that time can be used for other major tasks. My advice for anybody who is thinking about implementing this product is to start with a PoC. The vendor offers a 14-day PoC, which will give you a clear idea as to exactly what is happening. From there, you can choose to proceed with it or not. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Reduced time investigating incidents from the endpoint layer

What is our primary use case?

Email protection from: * All malicious attachments. * Phishing URLs * Phishing and spam emails.

Pros and Cons

  • "I see from time to time that Perception Point is being proactive. They approach us, and say, "Can you check this, and this?" So, it does seem that they are an extension of my incident response."
  • "They can do better on the spam. Today, Perception Point is not our only solution. We have two solutions, and they are the second in line because the spam filtering is not yet the best."

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking for a one stop solution that will deal with all your email security, then they are probably not the perfect one because you will still need to add more tools. If you are looking to be the best in security and stop all security threats coming through via email, add this solution to your current environment and trust that they have 99.9 success rates when blocking any malicious stuff. Depending on the company, you can either add them to your portfolio or replace other solutions that are not as good as them. You need to remember to whitelist your internal services so they will…

Provides good security protection by blocking crypto viruses, threats, and phishing attempts

What is our primary use case?

It transports rules from our mail system to their scanning mechanism. It is a very straightforward solution. The mail just goes through their system. They scan it, and if there are any cases of cyber threats, then they will be stopped over there. We don't really feel the system. It is like fire-and-forget.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution’s effectiveness when it comes to detection is very good. It has a very good mechanism. It scans our emails. It identifies any threat or phishing attempts and phishing campaigns as well as any bad reputation, servers, or links, then it blocks them. This is what I find to be very good about this system."
  • "Its websites for analysis need to be a bit more approachable for people who are less technical. Technically, it is a fire-and-forget solution. So, you want to be able to implement this solution for a lot of companies who don't have security operation teams (SOCs) behind them. You need to have something where a secretary can jump onto this console and release whatever she needs to release. Therefore, it needs to be written in a very specific non-technical language."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone, "Go and do it." This solution is a security layer that needs to be done or implemented in any organization because of the risks that people have today when it comes to attacking human factors. This is a good blocking solution for these attack vectors. We are considering right now to extend the solution to SharePoint and OneDrive. We are looking for the budget. I would rate this solution as a 10 out of 10.

Straightforward to set up, good support, and quickly adapts to new threats

What is our primary use case?

We are today using this product for email filtering and we plan to use it later for file filtering on cloud-sharing platforms.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to identify malicious content and phishing emails and reduce the workload we have to do in terms of security."
  • "The only thing that can be improved in Perception Point is the in-depth analysis and attribution to cyberattack groups."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Perception Point is that there are no false negatives and no false positives with this product. Overall, I am very happy with it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Stops malicious emails and has very few false positives

What is our primary use case?

We are using it to screen all emails coming into our infrastructure and email system. So, it is screening and blocking anything noted as malicious. It tags anything noted as spam, which gives us a frontline defense on all emails coming into our organization.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution’s effectiveness when it comes to detection is very good. It is stopping malicious emails and tagging emails noted as spam. So, we are able to disseminate those emails, get what we need, and block clearly malicious emails. It saves us a lot of valuable time. It keeps our users safe, e.g., the majority of emails that they would have gotten in the past don't even make it into their inbox."
  • "This is an option to preview an email in their console, and that could be improved. If you open the preview, then it auto scrolls. Therefore, it is hard to look at the email when it is going to the next page or scrolling. It should not have the auto-scroll."

What other advice do I have?

The solution works. There are very few false positives. It does what it is supposed to do, stopping it at the source. The company does not plan to increase its usage in the near future. I would rate this solution as a 10 out of 10.
