If trying to ensure the email is secure from a certain degree of threats like spam, ransomware and even phishing attacks than Sophos Secure Email Gateway is the answer. In our organization, it's been implemented and none of the security incidents related to those attacks that rooted from email is reported. And Sophos Secure Email Gateway has one of the best email encryption methods we found on the market.

Pros

Avast Email Security

  • The software offers better protection to emails
  • The software is relatively affordable
  • With Avast Email Security, it is easy to manage inbox sizes of individual emails

Sophos Email

  • We could customize it to have a certain level of workflow. We manage to enforce certain email (based on key-phrases) to be quarantined before send it to the recipient. And the email needs to be approved (manually) before being released.
  • For certain type (using regex) of email, we will encrypt it if it's sent outside our organization domain.
  • Scalable

Cons

Avast Email Security

  • I have not experienced any issues that I can list here.

Sophos Email

  • Reporting could be more granular, it's the most glaring weakness of the product.
  • The ability to drill down into data from the dashboard would be very helpful for reporting as well.
  • Reverse AD sync so when active directory users are removed, they are removed from Sophos as well would be helpful.

It was easy to use and easy to implement. You don't need previous knowledge on the products, after we got this up and running, it took us hours to put everything together. The transition was easy and seamless.

The solution is very scalable, with a possibility to be customized; which means that Sophos Email can be configured depending on our own situation and context not on a general way.On the other hand, Sophos Email has a broad feature set; I mean, along with core spam and malware protection, Sophos offers advanced features such as real-time
link following, threat isolation, spoof protection, etc.

I have always found the answers I have needed in the documentation or online, and have not needed to contact Sophos Secure Email Gateways' support team. This, I think, bodes well for how their software is easy to use and has good documentation when you cannot find what you need in the basic interface.

Alternatives Considered

Avast Email Security

Avast Email Security is a great tool more so if your have other Avast products. It is easy to use, very secure and offers great features to protect your emails. It is the best I have used

Performance is the key differentiator for us. As previously mentioned, we have a ton of people accessing multiple shared mailboxes for support and operations, and the previous software (Symantec) that we had causes unresponsiveness or multiple false alarms which leads to a ton of issues.If the delay is on 1 person and 1 false alarm email, it's bearable - but multiply that ten fold it drastically affects our operations.

Return on Investment

Avast Email Security

  • By keeping spamming and other online threats away, we do not have to worry about corrupt emails or hacking instances.
  • With Avast Email Security, we do not have to worry about data loss
  • Avast Email Security makes it easy to encrypt and decrypt emails thereby ensuring data privacy
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos Email

  • Sophos Email has been protecting our users, including the administrative branch, who are the target of attacks most frequently.
  • Every month Sophos Email stops about 100,000 malicious emails. We calculate that if these attacks have saved the company time, it prevents us from having a lot of support staff to attend to the cases.
