FireEye Email Security

I would highly recommend FireEye Email Security to a colleague. The platform is good at eliminating malicious emails prior to delivery to the end-user. Detections exist across the URL, attachment, and embedded HTML levels. It is a strong platform.

Cons

Cisco Secure Email

  • Email blocking using header-from address.
  • Spam reporting to Cisco needs to be improved.
  • Clustering: active-active mode would be nice.

Good interface, easy to use and set up. If there were any issues, there is very good documentation and videos that one can follow for additional setup and best practices. As typical with most Cisco solutions, there are more features than needed for our purposes but good to know they are there in case of future needs

FireEye Email Security is the most effective email security solution for protecting enterprises from APT. It is not complicated to set up and you can ride a wave of continuous security effects for a long time without major changes after the initial setup. It's automated, so users don't have to care too much about it. In addition, it provides detailed analysis data, so you can utilize it for 3rd party solutions if you want.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Secure Email

Cisco Secure Email gives granular control over configuring the rules and policies for organization users. Additionally, it's available with on-premise support, which is where other solutions lack. It gives complete protection for emails with next-generation malware protection, file reputation, and sandboxing technologies. It can also give you control over outgoing emails.

FireEye Email Security

There are a few things FireEye Email Security does better than ProofPoint and vice versa. For example, you would think blocking .html attachments would be trivial. FireEye Email Security can be configured to do it. Proofpoint can not, and if you try to configure it, HTML gets stripped from the email content, which has a major impact on the business. On the other hand, ProofPoint has a number of additional features and bells and whistles that FireEye Email Security does not.

Return on Investment

Cisco Secure Email

  • We are able to send emails securely thanks to encryption features.
  • We are able to protect our business email system thanks to threat detection features.
Jacob Henry | TrustRadius Reviewer

FireEye Email Security

  • It's been positive in the sense that it has blocked some malicious email that would have otherwise made it to our users.
  • It has been negative in the sense that we spend a higher-than-expected number of cycles dealing with false positives.
  • Another negative is that we also experience false negatives.
