Cisco Cloud Email Security

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 Advanced Threat Protection is well suited for environments that have a formal cyber-security department. It s not suited for smaller companies that do not have an official cyber-security department. Since these environments typically have an IT person or staff that wears multiple hats and won't have the time to give the product adequate attention to prove its value.

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.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection gives more visibility on incoming threats that come in via email. Its competitors leave more to the imagination, whereas Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection already provides those needs right out of the box. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is also easier to configure when it comes to an initial implementation. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection also is ranked high in Gartner.
