I have been asked, and I will continually recommend Avanan to friends and colleagues. This is a solution that just works. Simple, and easy to install. It took us under 30-minutes to implement. We are continually amazed at how well this product works for our company.

Excellent cloud discovery capabilities that can help you better understand what apps your users are using and the relative risks of each. Data protection and DLP use cases work as advertised and are exactly what our company needs to replicate DLP implementations already in the SaaS problem space. MCAS does a good job of identifying content that meets a number of pre-built types and templates for PCI and other related governance frameworks. It's a good CASB and can solve a lot of problems - it might be right for your organization and you should certainly evaluate the tool in you need CASB.

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

Microsoft Cloud App Security

  • Cloud discovery throws away found services not found in the MCAS database of SaaS apps.
  • Many panes of glass required for a fully enabled implementation to administer, configure and utilize 100% of the product.
  • Room for improvement in the reporting realm - not enough records are visible and exportable for high record count policy reports.

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.

Usability is so easy. It was a quick configuration with entering in some credentials, accepting terms and permissions and before you know it it's already going through and taking a look at existing emails. Portal is very easy to use and there are always updates with decent logs. The new UI is great and highly intuitive.

Avanan support always is ready to respond to user requests and typically does it in an exceptionally quick timeframe. Most requests are not even needed to be escalated as their team will look at active threats and deal with them before they are even a problem. Monthly meetups are also great in obtaining our needs as well as showing us what is new and in the horizon.

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.
Gus Gilchrist | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Cloud App Security

MCAS works well for our particular needs in the DLP, Data Protection, cloud discovery and Threat Detection spaces; most of these tools can accomplish the same tasks and also do enforcements with a forward proxy solution - MCAS does not offer that and if you need it you will have to look at other solutions. To find the best CASB for your org, ensure that you truly know your needs and requirements.

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

Microsoft Cloud App Security

  • We have discovered over 4K SaaS services in use at our company
  • We have been able to enforce DLP and Data protections in SaaS apps where we could not before!
  • MCAS is being utilized by our Threat Detection programs due to it's unique view and capabilities tied to UBA.
