AppRiver

If you want a great spam filter product, AppRiver is an easy choice. You can filter on premises mail servers, Office 365, most all pop3 providers, etc... About the only use case where we don't use AppRiver is for banking and medical clients that need to use encrypted email. Since these two industries have standardized on ZIX email encryption, it is a better answer for them to use ZIX encryption rather than AppRiver.

NeoCertified Secure Email

I have recommended NeoCertified to anyone I know that needs that added protection for themselves and their clients. NeoCertified is easy to do business with and for smaller companies is very affordable.

Pros

  • Ease of management for a MSP. Even though there is no integration w/ PSA tools currently, I don't see this as a negative. The management is multi-tenant and simple to navigate.
  • Support via chat is fast and very competent. Only downside is they are just available during extended business hours, not 24x7 on the chat.
  • Reselling Office 365 is very simple and gives us an advantage over our competitors. Includes pre sales support and post sale support.
  • Encrypted email services act much like others, it works very well and includes and Outlook Plug in to make it obvious you intend to send messaged encrypted.
  • Email continuity. Email queuing is included, so if your onsite server goes down, mail queues at the spam filter until service is restored. You can step it up w/ their email continuity service which give you access to your mail at the spam filter in cases where your mail server is down for an extended period of time.

  • Easily works with our Outlook email system.
  • Those receiving our secure emails find it easy to set up a user name and password to access and open and attach and send back.
  • Whenever help is needed they respond quickly.

Cons

  • It would be nice if the billing was integrated into our PSA tool (ConnectWise) for ease of billing. Since we've been doing this for so long, we just wrapped the cost of spam filtering into the base price of our services. As we add more Office 365 clients, this feature would help us keep up with billing better.
  • There is still a separate portal for provisioning. I'd like to see this all on one place.

  • Our wish list would be if we could utilize it via our Gmail system. We don't use Outlook emails except with NeoCertified.

Alternatives Considered

AppRiver requires the least amount of management time, the pricing is better and the minimums are such that almost all SMB's won't be buying shelfware. If you are an MSP, become a partner and you will see spam problems become a thing of the past.

It has been a while since I looked at other email security sites. Quite honestly I do not know. After we found NeoCertified and implemented it we simply do not worry nor do we look at changing. When a product works why look elsewhere?

Return on Investment

  • AppRiver has reduced the time we spend on addressing spam and email borne viruses by at least 95%. Back in the early/mid 2000's, we spent hours a week dealing w/ spam, now its a few minutes a month, mostly approving whitelist requests and helping clients w/ misunderstandings about why something was blocked by the spam filter.
  • We make decent margins on Office 365 and the provisioning time has been easily cut by two thirds for new clients.
  • Probably the largest impact is the lack of time we spend managing the solution. When managing your own spam filter, it needs care and feeding. With AppRiver, once you get someone signed up, you don't have to manage the tool.

  • It solves my number 1 problem...staying compliant with the security rules and regulations that my industry imposes.
  • It gives peace of mind to my clients that their personal information is secured. This is an easy step in customer service that goes above and beyond what many offer. Trust is a huge issue for clients, we have our clients trust that we will always be looking out for their best interest, including securing our correspondence that includes private information.
