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.

Cofense Managed PDR

With Cofense Managed PDR, we gain more peace of mind and comfort to proactively protect against phishing threats and vulnerabilities that arrive in employee email inboxes. It's something that took time from my IT team to solve this kind of problem that was recurring. Now everything is automated, proactive in detecting and responding to the phishing attack. The only job we have is to review the logs frequently and fix some more serious incidents. I recommend the solution for companies of any size.

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

Cofense Managed PDR

  • The best part of this product is that it gives confidence to the user because, in the case of threats, all of them would be removed.
  • It is very responsive, and they just quickly respond to all of the customers' queries in less than 20 minutes.
  • There is transparency in the platform because of the monthly account reviews and [...] a review of metrics as well.
Darren Mihalic | 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

Cofense Managed PDR

  • Since such tools are necessary for all organizations regardless of the size of the organization so its pricing should be made reasonable.
  • It’s a little heavy tool and demands a high processor.
  • I want Cofense to make it active against other viruses too and not just confined to Phishing attacks.

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.

Cofense Managed PDR

Cofense Phising Defense Center (PDC) is really good when it comes to hunting down of threats. It has a global network of intelligence and it can mitigate attacks before happening and can eliminate threats before it can make your system compromised. It also scans really fast and effectively and as a result blocks all the phising and other malicious contents from files and emails very effectively.

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.
Kishor Kumar TB | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cofense Managed PDR

  • [It] saves our time and nerves anyway.
  • Cofense uses a system strategic approach to detecting a possible threat in mails.
  • They used their own database of all threats behaviour they know at the current moment.
  • It very looks like an antivirus way to identify threats, it provides stability.
  • [Cofense Managed] PDR is not intended for 1 user, it is for enterprise companies.
  • [It can] identify series of similar letters [and] different spam campaign behavior.
  • [It has] automated reaction on any mailing.
