BrandShield Anti-Phishing

As we have seen it's working, we sure can refer this brand-saving tool to any organization striving to secure their confidential data and wants to protect their servers from any malware or cyber-attacks. A highly recommended tool to manage all the confidential data and recovery files of their organization. We do understand the loss of confidential data being attacked by any external source. So start to get services from Brand shield and stay secure with your organizational matters.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

Mimecast has been great at filtering our email for spam, phishing attempts, and potentially dangerous email attachments. We have been very happy with the reliability of the Mimecast services - I don't remember it being down in 2 years of using the service. My one complaint is that the admin console is not very easy to navigate, which makes some of the services difficult to implement. That being said, their support team has been great about walking us through these issues.

Cons

BrandShield Anti-Phishing

  • Sometimes it hangs the system in our server and takes some time to stabilize the system.
  • The price is sort of too high as compare to other competitors.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

  • The Admin Management console is absurdly complicated. For every first time we wanted to setup we've had to call their support for assistance. Support is quick and fantastic but it's so difficult to do anything yourself. They seem to have gone out of their way to call features unique things instead of using standard language from other providers so you as an IT professional know what you're looking for to setup.
  • They have lots of KB articles, which their support will point you to. They are written on the most basic level and don't actually provide the help you need. For example, the KB page will tell you the list of options on the page... but not actually tell you what you do, why you might use them, or define their terminology.
  • Their email threat management system has several nice features. One of the features available is that it will rewrite links in emails so that users click the link and it sandboxes the link, testing it on their server space and the user sees it there. This means the actual link in the email gets changed to the address of one of their servers. As a law firm, the EXACT LINKS are important to maintain in our communications and editing actual data from our clients to point to a Mimecast server is an unacceptable practice. I wish they had an alternative that did not edit the link itself on the page.

When calling them you get best in the world customer services but as previously mentioned their online community and capabilities are a bit lacking. They want you to log into their portal to see updates on issues (vs. using a public facing service) and I rarely find the answers to my issues in electronic format. Their online presence is only helpful with the simplest of issues.

Alternatives Considered

BrandShield Anti-Phishing

Those who don’t want to use brand shield anti-phishing tools can also go for Bit defender. We have done a lot of research on both of these before going to any one of these and the only competitor we have found out is bit defender. But for us, BrandShield is still the best one to secure your brand. The amount we have invested is returned to very well as it works according to the promises the BrandShield has done, so no regrets on using it.

Previously we have only used the default on-premise exchange that comes with SBS. This was very simple and only provided basic filtering of spam and junk mail. We weren't able to filter impersonation mail or emails with malicious code

Return on Investment

BrandShield Anti-Phishing

  • Sharply detecting an attack or infringement and detects online pishing instantly.
  • Sometimes it hangs the system in our server and takes some time to stabilize the system.
  • It is quite heavy for some systems and consumes a lot of space on storage which is a little bit annoying for our work.
  • Background working is far better than any other service.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway

  • Positive - It's hard to put a dollar amount on prevention, but we have been saved many times by the email and URL security filter. Users have clicked on links which were blocked by Mimecast. We have avoided costly ransomware and virus situations many times because of this.
  • Cost savings - Mimecast has worked with us to set reasonable prices, especially because we are a non-profit. At the time of purchase they were significantly cheaper than their closest competitor (Proofpoint).
  • Subscription cost. This is a subscription product so overall it can be more expensive than an on-premise solution. However we feel that the cost was well worth the security benefits.
