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.

This is the perfect solution for businesses that want a scalable solution with a fixed cost per user. Intermedia is amazing with no contracts.

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.
Frank Haarmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intermedia Email Plus

  • Email filtering is good, but not excellent
  • Office 365 default settings require a little tweaking (registry)

I love the usability of Intermedia Email Plus. The only downfall isn't their fault. The issue with Office 365 registry settings requires changes to connect to Intermedia Email Plus flawlessly.

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.

Intermedia Email Plus

Intermedia Email Plus support is better, costs are comparable or better, and backups are better than the alternatives.

  • Easy administration
  • Easy onboarding
