Alibaba Mail

Alibaba Mail is well suited for email management and is very well suited for us. It has many good features that are important, like being secure, and tools like the integrated calendar, which is useful for seeing schedules, availability, and scheduling meetings or events accordingly. Another quite important thing is that it offers a collaborative software solution.

Comparable to a Barracuda email appliance, these units retain email that is quarantined as well as provide cloud layer to support it. It is best suited for a medium size company as the devices are often not as scalable as Barracuda.

  • The onsite appliances have end-of-life forcing an upgrade to new unit.
  • Many of the appliances have been end-of-life and seems McAfee may not be offering the service in the future.

Barracuda provides two product options, the ESS cloud-only filtering, and onsite Email Security Gateway appliances. Unless compliance needs require the on-premises device, the ESS option easily beats the McAfee Email Gateway.

Return on Investment

Alibaba Mail

  • Secure system
  • Reduced cost as other ESPs were costlier
  • Enhanced productivity
  • Saves time

  • The end-of-life of appliances is unfortunate as it forces a purchase of a replacement unit. Barracuda devices have a 4-year refresh cycle so purchasing additional hardware is rarely necessary.
  • McAfee seems to be phasing out the service over time.
