Check Point Software Technologies
What it says, it provides. It has the Data leak prevention that is the major help while we have to deal with lot of clients at a time. It has the Secure Click that checks any embedded hyperlink so that when we work on emails we don't have to worry about the hidden security threats inside a email.

In a medium company, it is suited since the cost can be high for a smaller one.
I think there are better and more complete products for companies with higher volume or levels of confidentiality. While it is a good product, today there are several that exceed it in quality and functionality.

Pros
Check Point Software Technologies
  • 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.

  • By having the physical appliance, it is more granular the control that is had of the users, which also accelerates the speed of detection of threats.
  • The few options of DLP that it has are very useful when filtering sensitive data, but I stress "few".
  • The interface is intuitive, but for more advanced options, it requires a higher than average knowledge of these systems.

Cons
Check Point Software Technologies
  • 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.

  • I know it is not a DLP since there is another specific product for it, but they could do it just a little easier for the average user.
  • An intuitive interface in a broader aspect, not only in the basic functions.
  • The option only in the cloud is good, but only the appliance offers all the functionalities.

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).

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.

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.

Unfortunately all these products are better in almost all aspects. It is not to discredit the Trustwave, but they have much to improve in this area.

  • In a medium company it is correct, since the cost can be high for a smaller one and it is not worth it.
