Amazon S3 Glacier

If your organization has a lot of archival data that it needs to be backed up for safekeeping, where it won't be touched except in a dire emergency, Amazon Glacier is perfect. In our case, we had a client that generates many TB of video and photo data at annual events and wanted to retain ALL of it, pre- and post- edit for potential use in a future museum. Using the Snowball device, we were able to move hundreds of TB of existing media data that was previously housed on multiple Thunderbolt drives, external RAIDs, etc, in an organized manner, to Amazon Glacier. Then, we were able to setup CloudBerry Backup on their production computers to continually backup any new media that they generated during their annual events.

Zix Email Threat Protection

Zix is great. In our organization, we have some staff that are very techy and some where technology is a struggle. Zix just works. End users can send emails and Zix scans and quarantines emails if needed. Staff and IT admins are alerted, IT can review the message, and staff has the ability to self-release (if configured that way). After reviewing several other vendors/solutions. Zix is an incredible cloud-hosted solution, so no need to have a server onsite. Customer service has been great on setting up the initial ruleset, and the few times we needed some additional help on pulling reports. Reporting is also great on Zix. You can track messages, see if a message was read (if using the secure portal), expire the message, etc.

Rytis Slatkevičius | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • Makes it easy for those receiving emails to create an account and retrieve the email.

  • Monitoring inbound email threats is easy.
  • Support has been very quick resolving or explaining support tickets I've created.

Cons

Amazon S3 Glacier

  • Accessing data stored in Glacier is slow. That shouldn't be a surprise, but it is undesirable nonetheless.
  • Retrieving a large amount of data can be expensive; Glacier's intended use is as an archive of rarely-accessed data.
  • Some users regard Glacier with fear and uncertainty. Slow retrieval time and high retrieval cost are the greatest risks of using Glacier, and they are also the Glacier interaction that most users have the least experience with.

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • 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 has almost perfectly surpassed all of our requirements, and interactions their people are a delight. We expect to continue using Zix to provide streamlined encrypted document delivery and for sensitive communications. It is also helpful that many lending institutions are standardized on the platform, making the high level of interaction that we have be as seamless as possible.

It is difficult to delete the data as you have to wait for inventory and then bucket modification has to expire.

Zix is super user friendly for both our staff and the recipients of the messages. Logs are present, of course, for auditing when the need arises. The management portal is easy to use, also. You can use the service as is after install or make customizations that would better suit your business and workflow.

The availability of Zix has been very good. We have never had an outage due to an issue with the Zix portal or service. They plan their upgrades for off hours and do a good job of communicating any planned upgrades or outages well in advance. Zix has always been available when we need it.

there is no lag in transferring large encrypted documents. Real Estate transactions are horribly time sensitive and stressful. Zix performs flawlessly. It is always there, always responds without delay. It is probably dark magic.

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.

The training is very thorough and well individualized for our application. It was done online with the trainer on telephone.I felt that they were truly interested in my success, and provided resources for follow up. The trainer was easily understood with thorough knowledge of the product and giving helpful advice for implementation.

The online training we received from Zix was very good. They did a good job of walking us through the entire setup process and also provided good documentation as a reference. It was valuable because we worked directly with our configuration and portal during the training. We weren't just working with a hypothetical example.

Zix was already implemented when I started. I migrated our Zix to the cloud version years later. Zix support did a great job assisting me in moving to the cloud. They worked with me the entire way, and it was a painless process. Moving to the cloud was a great recommendation. They were really thinking of our best interests.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon S3 Glacier

Since the rest of our infrastructure is in Amazon AWS, coding for sending data to Glacier just makes sense. The others are great as well, for their specific needs and uses, but having *another* third-party software to manage, be billed for, and learn/utilize can be costly in money and time.

Even though employees are highly skeptical and apprehensive to use the product, I try to trust that the Zix scanning is doing its job and protecting what it needs to. I certainly worry about it on a regular basis though.

Return on Investment

Amazon S3 Glacier

  • Helped us meet compliance requirements while minimizing costs.
  • Simple integration with almost no changes required to our existing S3 management policies.
Jeff Stockamp | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zix Email Threat Protection

  • It keeps our client data secure in transit, aiding us in compliance to HIPPA and other required standards, which also lends to peace of mind.
  • It greatly minimizes the time spent combing through email to sort and deal with junk/spam.
  • It minimizes the risk of employees inadvertently clicking infected links from within emails, opening our network to larger threats. This alone saves time and money as it decreases the time spent by our IT department in dealing with information security issues and system recovery that we might otherwise face.
