Cisco Cloud Email Security

The most appropriate scenarios to implement email security is in companies that want to protect the use of electronic mail since it is one of the security breaches that are currently used to perform any type of attack. Very effective integration with Office 365 and it is highly recommended to add the functionality of advanced malware protection

Cons

Cisco Cloud Email Security

  • Outlook integration in terms of a plug-in would be great. Currently, users can't add something to a blacklist or whitelist directly from Outlook.
  • Management of the platform is done from two portals the ESA and SMA. It would be nice to have it all in one management portal.
  • A quick start management guide would be nice. The manual is over 1,000 pages, so there is definitely a lot of functionality in this service.

Forcepoint Email Security

  • Speed is not the best but its email not instant chat

Cisco TAC support is very good since they have engineers available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Important to mention that you must have the support of the solution enabled to be able to receive a response from TAC and that we can be taken care of. The only drawback may be that they will not be able to see settings of the email provider you use.

The support could be better, but the good thing is rarely having to call them.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Cloud Email Security

Cisco was at least better than or equal to the others but within our budget. It provided all of the services of anti-spam, content filtering, anti-virus, DLP, encrypted email service, scalability, and more than the others. Cisco name and reputation were also key in our decision.

Forcepoint Email Security

Since Forcepoint is used widely in our organization, the integration between DLP web and Mail is amazing, and I didn’t find a good reason to split services between vendors if I have all the package in one place
