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.

If you don't want to have any spam or malware in your mailbox, Symantec Email Security.cloud is the solution to choose. Also, if you need to have some security features, like DLP, it has them embedded!
We have also been using reporting a lot to see how many emails have been sent, where they delivered, and so on.

Cons

Fortra

  • 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.

Broadcom

  • Searching within the console can be slow at times, especially when making small tweaks and refreshing quickly
  • Features seem to have slowed down since Symantec acquired this formerly "MessageLabs" product
  • Advanced filtering and scanning is not quite as good as several competitors

      In very tricky cases, it takes time to explain it to the support personnel as they don't get your problem from the first couple of emails.

      Alternatives Considered

      Fortra

      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.

      Barracuda's ESS is the premier product, it boasts outbound email encryption as an included service as well as all of the security features of Symantec Email Security.cloud. Sophos is on the same level as SES.c but is not quite as feature rich.

      Return on Investment

      • Since this CS SEG environment is operated for a customer, I cannot answer this question

      • Our previous solution was very manual. The ROI has been in less manual intervention from the admins and freeing up their already busy schedules.
