Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

The CS SEG appliances are running as virtual appliances by now. They do need not much power in the ESX environment. I recommend to use at least two peers running in a cluster. The cluster feature is working very well. The CS SEG can process a huge number of emails in a very short time frame.

FileWall is great solution to protect your end-users from malicious attachments. If your company often sending and receiving email attachments (even from trusted customers, sometimes accounts can be compromised), FileWall will safe-guard your environment. Very low price makes FileWall available for SMBs. With pretty straight-forward implementation and configuration process our IT department was able to configure the solution in our system within 1 day without any additional training.

Cons

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

  • Improvement is needed in the area of AV/Antispam update processing (internally)
  • Improvement is needed in the log file processing. Many log file entries are not understandable for an operator or administrator without special insider knowledge
  • Clearswift has recently changed the support provider. Now there are no german supporters anymore.

FileWall is very simple and intuitive to use. For the price and the functions that it offers, it is the best email attachment safety solution. The admin interface is very user-friendly and the rules are propagated immediately after activating them.

Filewall customer and technical support is always available and they provide customers with great feedback and full instructions how to achieve desired goals.
Great thing about this product is that you can communicate directly to product creators. If you as a client have some ideas, and want some additions, you can ask them, you will get response in very short period of time.

Alternatives Considered

Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway (SEG)

The Clearswift Secure Email Gateway (CS SEG) has very low license costs. A two peer cluster is enough to run a complete emailing gateway environment. Compared to the Proofpoint PPS the CS SEG does not need a management appliance. The CS SEG peers can manage the quarantine by themselves. This is easy to use and quite fast.

FileWall

My subscription for Microsoft Exchange is very basic. My subscription doesn't include very reliable email security. If I wanted added security, I need to pay more. With FileWall, I can have a very reliable, very user-friendly email security. It is very cheap and really does the job.

Frank Haarmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

FileWall

  • I feel my email is safe.
  • Automatically detects if the email is safe or if can cause harm.
