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.

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.

  • 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.
