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

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

Axway MailGate SC

  • Ability to alert a variety of statuses to administrators via email
  • Shows health status of the appliance to ensure proper functionality
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Axway MailGate SC

  • External storage configuration is complex to set up
  • Customer support is average, can be slow depending on the type of issue or request
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

MailGate works well with administrative control and ease of use for setting up TLS connectivity between clients
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos Email

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

Axway MailGate SC

  • MailGate has allowed the organization to accept more clients with their knowledge of our ability to securely send emails
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos Email

  • Without ISO 27001, our brand [directly impacts] and the email protection is a must for such standard certification
  • We are dealing with personal data for hundred of patients; if we are attacked and we don't have an email protection solution, all our [patient's] information will be on the dark web; which leads to huge professional loss
  • Exchange with some other health institution by being sure that the data shared via email is protected
