I've experienced clicking some of the phishing and spam emails, but Agari Phishing Defense identified those actions I've done and sent me the details of each and every part of the email where the attack is. Very often Agari Phishing Defense misses a few emails to report the malicious emails. But, it also has a solution to report the email and responds immediately with the answer.

Cons
Fortra
  • A vital business tool, but at a somewhat high cost for small businesses.
  • Some new functions are not quite responsive, so adding them after they have been completed would be ideal.
  • Simplifying your registration would be a great help in saving time.
  • Having adequate knowledge to handle the software makes it easier to use it and allows it to function properly.

  • I only ever had one complaint, we had a few hiccups during the setup process. We have now been a customer for two years and have had no further issues. It is likely that the setup pain points have now been resolved as well. Overall the product does what it claims while providing a very intuitive interface.

Cost, need to make sure the cost is competitive for how many users are using email protection as we move users to MS Teams and don't rely so much on full access to email accounts (both sending and receiving internal and external).

Support has always been there for me, they take on suggestions and product improvements quite seriously. I've spoken to techs and you can tell that they care about the product and the service in which they deliver. Avanan support is always responsive in everything I throw them and in most cases they don't tell me how to build out a widget or custom query, they actually do it for me and send it to me.
