Barracuda PhishLine

We purchased Barracuda PhishLine in order to educate our staff and reduce the amount of spam and phishing emails they have been opening. By getting management on board and having quarterly campaigns sent out, we were successful in identifying problem areas. Our percentage rate has decreased and management is happy

Sophos Phish Threat

If you're already using Sophos products, Phish Threat is a great addition to what you're already using. Because it's available under the same single pane of glass as most other Sophos things and can be added for a nominal cost to existing Sophos services, it's a great add-on. There are better single solution products out there, but those can cost more and/or they have to be serviced under a different logon and website.

Cons

Barracuda PhishLine

  • The administrator interface is complex.
  • [In my experience] The first campaign will fail because the start is too complex. It lacks a guided wizard.

Sophos Phish Threat

  • I wish I could mark manually that someone passed the training that way if a big group gets caught we can sit down and use our training class for the users.

I hate to give this a 7 but navigation of the application needs to be improved on. While I know where everything is now, there is room to make it streamlined.

It is easy to use and setup. You can schedule the Phish email test to be
sent out in the future or right away. You can also send to all users in
your list as well as stagger so all users do not get the email at the
same time and tell each other there is a test going on

Working with Barracuda PhishLine support is always a good experience. They are very professional, they are attentive and they are courteous. When I first purchased Barracuda PhishLine a few year ago it was new to them as well. At the time, the support staff could been better trained. That said, they worked hard to help and resolve my issues.

Support is solid but not spectacular. While I haven't used support for Phish Threat specifically, this is a general rating for Sophos' support across the board. It could be easier to find the FAQ or other information I need, but when I've needed to reach out to support they've been good to work with.

Sophos Phish Threat

We already use some of the other products in the Sophos Suite, so it was natural to test it and implement it directly in our Sophos Central admin center. So we never checked other products, as we, in general, are happy with Sophos.
