    We have multiple locations (both official and non-official/remote work location/work from home sections) that heavily benefit from the protection that Cisco Cloud Email Security provides. We are confident that in the case the local effects this pandemic is further prolonged in certain areas ([lock downs], quarantines, and so on), we can easily (and prefer) and safely allow our people to continue working from the comfort, and security of their chosen location.

    Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

    Proofpoint is definitely not for smaller organizations. I don't think that the price point and feature set is designed for that, but it is definitely for organizations that have upwards of 100 or more mailboxes that need to be monitored and protected. We do think that our organization is right in the Proofpoint sweet spot of 200+ mailboxes.

    Cons

    Cisco Cloud Email Security

    • On certain client machines, we found that the software prevented the opening of innocuous email attachments flagging them as potentially harmful.
    • Emails with large attachment sizes can sometimes slow down the email loading process.

    Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

    • There isn't a convenient one-source portal area yet for all Proofpoint products if you utilize more than one.
    • Our servers can sometimes be slow when loading pages, after placing tickets if the speeds go back up, support doesn't really do a deep dive on what's happening.

    It's an essential component of of security in general, making the usability 10/10 for us given that as I've previously mentioned, most (if not all) of our workers are currently remote.

    With this massive increase in "remote" locations, entails a massive increase in possible points of breach, hence, additional security is a must!

    Proofpoint offers a lot of products, but they are not particularly well integrated. They all look different, and there is no central location to access them all from, which is disappointing. However, I do know they have a big push for upgrading the UI and usability, so this should improve in the coming months I hope.

    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.

    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.
    Randy Zuehlke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

    We use Proofpoint Threat Protection in conjunction with Microsoft 365. While Microsoft does have some very nice email security features that are getting better every day, we do think that Proofpoint is a value add and have no inclination to discontinue use or look for another product at this time.
