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.

I have already recommended Zix to a number of our coworkers in the home healthcare industry, and a number of those coworkers also use Zix, which makes it quite simple to connect with one another. Because it pertains to health care, which is an industry in which it is vital to maintain confidentiality and sensitivity, we also utilize it within our own organization to communicate with one another.

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.

  • Ease of use. Other competitors platform is WAY easier to use and customize.
  • You have to cover THE ENTIRE ORGANIZATION with coverage, even though only a handful will need to use email encryption
  • The Zix Protect platform is a complete joke to customize and use.

It is much simpler to configure and operate in comparison to other anti-spam applications. Zix's customer usage is comparable to that of other spam filters on the market; but, in terms of convenience of use, Zix comes out on top. Daily delivery of logs is provided, and the user is not required to sign in order for an email to be sent.

Zix is very good about response times and information. They even proactively e-mail us about known issues. I have never had an issue go unresolved, and the support team tends to answer quickly unless it's a strange, complicated request. The only time that happened was doing a search through logs, and that was entirely on me and my unfamiliarity with their flavor of Linux.

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.

Cost is competitive, but factoring in Office licensing really made sense for my organization. Cost is lower for more features - I was able to move to Zix and get the top of the line package, moving from a mid-tier product at a competitor. Workflows and process have improved, and the filter is more accurate than our previous filter

  • Recommended Zix as secure email resource to the salesforce and seems to have been nicely adopted.
  • Peace of mind that some emails are hopefully getting encrypted and that we are more secure than we were before...sometimes. Again, there should be some indication to the sender that their information was sent securely. Even if it is a pop up or something.
