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.

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.
