    What it says, it provides. It has the Data leak prevention that is the major help while we have to deal with lot of clients at a time. It has the Secure Click that checks any embedded hyperlink so that when we work on emails we don't have to worry about the hidden security threats inside a email.

    Highly recommended for large organizations. It can be a daunting as well as a monotonous task to keep up with all of the emails that are reported. When there are such high volumes of emails it is easy to let a malicious report slip through the cracks. Cofense PDC brings the most urgent emails to your attention so you don't have to worry about missing those anymore.

      Cost, need to make sure the cost is competitive for how many users are using email protection as we move users to MS Teams and don't rely so much on full access to email accounts (both sending and receiving internal and external).

      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

      Check Point Software Technologies

      Avanan has a one-click solution, which subscribers or clients use to deploy a new security update. Further, Avanan has the protection of any cloud application, which means, it bypasses any security threat and maintain the set safety processes. Finally, data leakage is a shield that Avanan has deployed, a very smooth process in the firm.

      This product just successfully conquers its competitors and alternatives. This is because upgrades and improvement in software play a very important role, as with upgrades, a user feels connected with the platform. No one likes using outdated software, so [...] I find this product to be the best option out of all, as it is continuously in the race [to become] the best. I always see some upgrades [...] which makes me a happy user, unlike other alternatives.
