Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security)

In our organization and with our partners, email is the vast majority of our communications for doing business from ordering, quoting, and updates. Having an email security solution from a trusted brand is key. Great solution if you use a lot of email communications. Not as important if your company uses other forms of communications.

FireEye Email Security

It works well as one component of an email security stack, as long as you do not mind dealing with false positives. It would not be suitable as the only component in an email security system. When upstream components of our stack have gone down, a high number of malicious mail got through our FireEye appliance.

  • DLP
  • Graymail prevention

FireEye Email Security

  • Ease of implementation was a key factor in our decision making for an email security/spam product. FireEye ES was very easy to implement as well as to maintain.
  • Blocking effectiveness in an email security/spam product has to be the most important factor. FireEye ES does a very good job of completely blocking the vast majority of risky emails. With its sand-boxing features, it does a good job of evaluating threats. The spam blocking is effective without being overly so.
  • Being a cloud product makes ease of management a great feature. The console is easy to get to, use and understand. Whitelisting, finding emails that are impacted, and other common email flow questions are easily achieved.

I would overall give this product a 10 out of 10. I don't see many flaws at all and it does what it's meant to do and helps put my clients' minds at ease when sending personal information via email. This software allows you to send secure emails to those intended to receive them. This helps not only myself but also clients feel safe when emailing secure documents that contain personal and financial information.

It provides us with another layer of defense and has proven to be a great asset and return on investment. Nothing is perfect but this is definitely something to evaluate if you are in the market looking to implement a new email gateway solution or upgrade from something that you already have in place.

In the years we have had this service, we haven't needed much help (which is a testament to the ease of use/reliability of the product) but when we have they have been probably the best vendor I've ever dealt with when it comes to quickly addressing support call issues. We also have a very readily available engineer that has been quick to help with more complex requests.

I was not involved in the evaluation of FireEye Email Security, as it was done before I was in my current role. So, I am not aware of which other tools were evaluated.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security)

  • Email availability got better.
  • Less SPAM & less false positives.
  • Clean emails from viruses.
  • Lots of phishing attacks were stopped.

FireEye Email Security

  • The cost of FireEye ES is more than we were paying for our Baracuda Spam filter, but we seem to get much less spam and or false blocks so time is saved in not having to deal with those issues.
  • The primary focus was to continue spam blocking but add a much more robust security layer. The security seems to work well and with the state of phishing/malware attacks, the service is like solid gold. We have many known attacks repelled daily.
