Cons
Cisco
  • 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.

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

Support Rating
Cisco
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 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.

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
