    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.

        Usability

        Cisco

        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!

        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.

        Alternatives Considered

        Cisco

        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.
