Axway MailGate SC

MailGate is well suited for organizations that have sensitive information with the need to securely transport via email, it is less appropriate for larger organizations as the overhead for administrators becomes more complex

Proofpoint Essentials

I would definitely recommend it for fast and easy deployment with no need of constant managing solution. It is a solid solution that will do all what you need for the email security. Especially when you have a small IT team or even do not have enough experienced specialists to handle email security questions - Proofpoint is what I would recommend to use. I gave it 9 of 10 points only because of the price, you can find find more cheap solutions on the market.

Alternatives Considered

Proofpoint Essentials

I think Proofpoint is a lot easier to use and has a simpler design. I also really like the automated user creation and deletion which I'm not sure if Symantec had. We had use Symantec through an old MSP so it wasn't a decision we made to change but I would have changed if it was our [decision.]

  • We are a financial company that requires a lot of regulations on the information security side, so Proofpoint is one of the key tools that closes lots of potential security breaches.
  • Decreased almost to zero the number of SPAM, Fraud and Phishing attacks.
  • Using that solution doesn't require to have a dedicated specialist for email security.
