Avanan

Avanan fits really well for anyone using Office 365 or Google GSuite who is concerned with cyber security. It detects threats which bypass the inbuilt protections in Office 365, and threats which are not detected by standard email filtering solutions. It includes features such as suspicious account logins from multiple geographic locations within a short space of time.It is possible to provide email protection in a Hybrid Exchange environment, but some functionality is lost in this scenario, so may not be the best choice for anyone still using on-premise Exchange servers.

Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security)

In our organization and with our partners, email is the vast majority of our communications for doing business from ordering, quoting, and updates. Having an email security solution from a trusted brand is key. Great solution if you use a lot of email communications. Not as important if your company uses other forms of communications.

Avanan does what it's supposed to do with regard to protecting your email system. It eliminates a very high number of spoofs, phishes, spam, or other malicious emails from compromising our systems. We found that the prices along with the performance were well worth the investment compared to other comparable options in the market.

I would overall give this product a 10 out of 10. I don't see many flaws at all and it does what it's meant to do and helps put my clients' minds at ease when sending personal information via email. This software allows you to send secure emails to those intended to receive them. This helps not only myself but also clients feel safe when emailing secure documents that contain personal and financial information.

The support team have always been quick to respond and helpful, whenever we have reached out to them. They have also taken on feedback for product improvements and have generally implemented these fairly quickly, which is fantastic to see. I really can't fault the support we have received from the team at Avanan.

It provides us with another layer of defense and has proven to be a great asset and return on investment. Nothing is perfect but this is definitely something to evaluate if you are in the market looking to implement a new email gateway solution or upgrade from something that you already have in place.

Alternatives Considered

Avanan

We selected Avanan based on compelling evidence and performance. The product simply stands up and does so higher than Mimecast, Barracuda, and other such products with a very reasonable price point. It's the most effective weapon against spammers and phishing that we have used to date. Avanan has a human factor that other products do not.
