I will certainly recommend Cisco Secure Email to my friends/colleagues, one look at the dashboard/statistics will actually convince any IT professional to use this product. We noticed an outstanding improvement in Email quality, most of the SPAM emails are caught, and our users have never been happier!

This service may be useful for some businesses, so it's important to try it before deciding. It offers multiple layers of protection for both assisted and unassisted attacks, sandboxing (for obfuscated attacks), and a decent anti-phishing tool. It can be tricky to set up, but not the end of the world. In our case, unfortunately, the false positives were just unbearable.

      Usability

      Cisco

      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

      Strong support with fast response. TAC can suggest best mail policy regarding customer challenges Some cases they need to do patch directly to appliance. TAC does not need to remote the appliance through our laptop. They use secure connection to appliance, check the logs and response through the problems

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      The security teams also evaluated similar offerings but went with Cisco Secure Email since this comes from a big name and they wanted to ensure complete compliance and protection assurance. The primary reasons for selecting Cisco Secure Email were integration with office 365, hybrid deployment availability, and greater customization options available.

      Microsoft Exchange Online Protection is very easy to set up and has way fewer false positives than Kaspersky Security for Mail Server. It has virtually the same features as the Kaspersky alternative and it is extremely easy to set up. It feels like Microsoft Exchange Online Protection gives slightly more transparency about its conclusions, which allows users to make an informed decision about certain messages.
