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.

Mimecast is good when you are needing a basic email security platform. It does some basic things really well, but when you start hitting some advanced needs, it lacks. Mimecast does not do a good job with BEC detection. Mimecast does spam filtering alright, but it could be much better. It really doesn't care about gmail or other external addresses. It doesn't check for age of accounts, etc.

Pros
Fortra
  • It has the ability to separate the good emails from the bad, thanks to the fact that it is based on predictive AI.
  • It is capable of detecting the level of threat that comes from emails, which means it can stop it in the most appropriate way and thus suppress its spread.
  • It integrates easily with email applications.
  • An easy-to-use tool based on the cloud, which increases the ability to respond quickly to phishing attacks.

  • Email retention - convenience for the end-users to access older messages even if they've deleted them from Outlook
  • SPAM management - allows us to prevent SPAM and Phishing attacks with custom policies that fit our organizational needs
  • URL protection - allows incoming emails with a URL to be scanned and protects our end-users from clicking on malicious URLs

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.

  • The Admin Management console is absurdly complicated. For every first time we wanted to setup we've had to call their support for assistance. Support is quick and fantastic but it's so difficult to do anything yourself. They seem to have gone out of their way to call features unique things instead of using standard language from other providers so you as an IT professional know what you're looking for to setup.
  • They have lots of KB articles, which their support will point you to. They are written on the most basic level and don't actually provide the help you need. For example, the KB page will tell you the list of options on the page... but not actually tell you what you do, why you might use them, or define their terminology.
  • Their email threat management system has several nice features. One of the features available is that it will rewrite links in emails so that users click the link and it sandboxes the link, testing it on their server space and the user sees it there. This means the actual link in the email gets changed to the address of one of their servers. As a law firm, the EXACT LINKS are important to maintain in our communications and editing actual data from our clients to point to a Mimecast server is an unacceptable practice. I wish they had an alternative that did not edit the link itself on the page.

Yes using the same administration console is good, as user that you have assigned limited functionality to the console, they are already familiar with it when you increase their functionality. The new portal does take a bit of getting used to, but i can see that it is an improvement on the old version.

When calling them you get best in the world customer services but as previously mentioned their online community and capabilities are a bit lacking. They want you to log into their portal to see updates on issues (vs. using a public facing service) and I rarely find the answers to my issues in electronic format. Their online presence is only helpful with the simplest of issues.

Trustifi-Email Security is an excellent solution to keep data, customers, and employees protected against email threats, in addition to having great ease of use and cost savings for being cloud-based. Comparatively, Agari Phishing Defense not only offers us cloud-based software with artificial intelligence but also helps us quickly stop any threat that could harm both our employees and our brand. It performs continuous inbox scans to find any abnormal behavior and thus prevent spread throughout the business environment. This is why we chose Agari Phishing Defense.

Previously we have only used the default on-premise exchange that comes with SBS. This was very simple and only provided basic filtering of spam and junk mail. We weren't able to filter impersonation mail or emails with malicious code

  • Reasonably priced solution, even for a small business like ours.
  • It's hard to put a figure on our ROI - I would just say we feel like we've gotten our money's worth with the advanced email protection we receive. We have definitely avoided many potentially dangerous emails since we've implemented this solution.
