    Avanan

    This software is well-suited for a company that is looking to protect its data from common security breaches. It is very user-friendly and easy to implement, which is why these few things make it easily usable on a daily basis. This software also allows for much faster cloud performance and provides regular reports which provide security analytics.

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    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.

    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

    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.
    Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Avanan

    • Sometimes, it's not easy to find why the email has been moved to spam or blocked
    • Tuning takes time, sometime query just don't work even everything is right.
    • UI can be made more user friendly, so that it will be easier to operate
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    • 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.

    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).

    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

    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.
    Joel Elliot | TrustRadius Reviewer

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    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

    • 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

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    • 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.
