Cyber threats have become rapid and unexpected these days. Its better to have Avanan implemented to make sure we [don't] [lose] our valuable data. Avanan has good out of the box integrations such as google drive, one drive etc. It is fully automated and it provides up to date security to fight against any kind of threat.

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

The CS SEG appliances are running as virtual appliances by now. They do need not much power in the ESX environment. I recommend to use at least two peers running in a cluster. The cluster feature is working very well. The CS SEG can process a huge number of emails in a very short time frame.

Pros

Avanan

  • The dashboard for Avanan makes all of the most important information easy to digest.
  • Alerting - specifically, the Geo-Location alerts allow us to see if a user has possibly been compromised.
  • The End-User Email Quarantine experience gives users the ability to request emails be released, which trains them to better spot legitimate emails.
Nathaniel Roebuck | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

  • CS SEG is fast in email processing
  • Managing the quarantine is easy
  • Display of the reasons why an email has been processed this is very detailed
Frank Haarmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Avanan

  • Emails the platform sends out after setup require customization they're very basic and unreadable
  • Support is overwhelmed at this point
  • [The] initial implementation we fast but confusing to a point some things we skipped that were discussed during the demo and never got done when put into production.
Eric Rise | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

  • Improvement is needed in the area of AV/Antispam update processing (internally)
  • Improvement is needed in the log file processing. Many log file entries are not understandable for an operator or administrator without special insider knowledge
  • Clearswift has recently changed the support provider. Now there are no german supporters anymore.

We've just started using the product and have another 7 months to go under contract. At this point I'd renew, Avanan continues to improve the product as well as their support.

The end-users love not having their inboxes fill up with extra useless emails. As an administrator, it is simple to implement and maintain. The ability to put something into test mode before going live makes our life a lot easier and less stressful. Avanan has many different components to make your life easier.

Support has always been there for me, they take on suggestions and product improvements quite seriously. I've spoken to techs and you can tell that they care about the product and the service in which they deliver. Avanan support is always responsive in everything I throw them and in most cases they don't tell me how to build out a widget or custom query, they actually do it for me and send it to me.

Alternatives Considered

Avanan

Comparing Avanan to the competitors listed above, I think Mimecast would be the only real threat to accurately detecting and quarantining phishing and malware attempts as well as ransomware. With the advanced API, Avanan has an extremely high chance of catching things that Mimecast, Barracuda, ATP, and Proofpoint let through the email system leading straight inside your inbox. Without proper awareness training and a keen eye to what looks real or fake, you might end up clicking a bad link or attachment that can infect your organization. That is why it is very important to look for industry leading solutions such as Avanan being a strong suitor for securing your mailboxes and your team.
Travis Wallace | TrustRadius Reviewer

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

The Clearswift Secure Email Gateway (CS SEG) has very low license costs. A two peer cluster is enough to run a complete emailing gateway environment. Compared to the Proofpoint PPS the CS SEG does not need a management appliance. The CS SEG peers can manage the quarantine by themselves. This is easy to use and quite fast.

Return on Investment

Avanan

  • Improved risk mitigation by providing additional layer protection for M365.
  • Easy to setup and configure. No expert knowledge required and no downtime required.
  • Customizable license count. No need to buy the same number of mailbox users if you really don't want to protect some unused mailboxes.

  • Since this CS SEG environment is operated for a customer, I cannot answer this question
