    Cisco Secure Email

    All businesses will benefit from Cisco Secure Email this is because all modern businesses face email threats, for instance spamming and malware. With this software, you no longer have to worry about such threats. In addition, you also enjoy end-to-end email encryption.

    Comparable to a Barracuda email appliance, these units retain email that is quarantined as well as provide cloud layer to support it. It is best suited for a medium size company as the devices are often not as scalable as Barracuda.

    Budi Ezeddin | TrustRadius Reviewer

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    • Filtering system is very strong, more often than not blocks bad email.
    • Does fine job filtering and configuring content filtering for extension types such as ZIP or RAR.
    • Intermediary between Internet and email system provides extra layer of security including ability to spool email in the event of an email system outage.
    • Outbound encryption feature is very useful for security purposes.
    Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    • Creating filters from GIU.
    • Filters samples or database built-in the box would be super nice.

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    • The onsite appliances have end-of-life forcing an upgrade to new unit.
    • Many of the appliances have been end-of-life and seems McAfee may not be offering the service in the future.

    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

    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.

    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.

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    Barracuda provides two product options, the ESS cloud-only filtering, and onsite Email Security Gateway appliances. Unless compliance needs require the on-premises device, the ESS option easily beats the McAfee Email Gateway.
    Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    McAfee Email Gateway (Discontinued)

    • The end-of-life of appliances is unfortunate as it forces a purchase of a replacement unit. Barracuda devices have a 4-year refresh cycle so purchasing additional hardware is rarely necessary.
    • McAfee seems to be phasing out the service over time.
