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

Symantec Messaging Gateway

It is very well suited for an organization that wants to protect inbound email and use just one product. It may be less appropriate for an organization that is small or has a limited IT support staff.

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

Symantec Messaging Gateway

  • It would be difficult to determine the exact ROI Symantec Messaging Gateway had on your overall business. However, I can assure you the downtime suffered due to inbound email threats has been reduced to nearly zero in our environment. If IT isn't chasing down ransomware/phishing issues and users aren't staring at a quarantined PC, life is good.
  • There are no negative impacts on ROI that I can think of.
