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.

Comparable to a Barracuda email appliance, these units retain email that is quarantined as well as provide cloud layer to support it. It is best suited for a medium size company as the devices are often not as scalable as Barracuda.

Gus Gilchrist | TrustRadius Reviewer

McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

  • Filtering system is very strong, more often than not blocks bad email.
  • Does fine job filtering and configuring content filtering for extension types such as ZIP or RAR.
  • Intermediary between Internet and email system provides extra layer of security including ability to spool email in the event of an email system outage.
  • Outbound encryption feature is very useful for security purposes.

Cons

Avanan

  • I would like a phone support option.
  • I would like better admin access security for the portal; it is limited right now.

  • The onsite appliances have end-of-life forcing an upgrade to new unit.
  • Many of the appliances have been end-of-life and seems McAfee may not be offering the service in the future.

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.

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.

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.

Barracuda provides two product options, the ESS cloud-only filtering, and onsite Email Security Gateway appliances. Unless compliance needs require the on-premises device, the ESS option easily beats the McAfee Email Gateway.

Return on Investment

Avanan

  • Less contact with the helpdesk now, because users aren't getting emails that are malicious.
  • It saves time with having to scan computers for viruses when opening certain emails.

  • The end-of-life of appliances is unfortunate as it forces a purchase of a replacement unit. Barracuda devices have a 4-year refresh cycle so purchasing additional hardware is rarely necessary.
  • McAfee seems to be phasing out the service over time.
