Avanan is well suited while marking a email as spam or not it was almost always accurate but sometime it mark the genuine content as spam which is frustrating but from a security perspective tool is really accurate.Price is low so it helps organization really well in cost cutting compared to compete tiers but UI can be improved a bit which will really add value to product

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps

It is well suited if your team is working with Microsoft tools and Azure services. but if you are using other cloud service providers and don't want to spend efforts in learning integration with third-party software then this is not a great fit for you. overall we are very satisfied with the product. If your corporation with Microsoft tools then I would recommend it.

Cons

Avanan

  • I only ever had one complaint, we had a few hiccups during the setup process. We have now been a customer for two years and have had no further issues. It is likely that the setup pain points have now been resolved as well. Overall the product does what it claims while providing a very intuitive interface.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps

  • 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.

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.
