    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.

    Trend Micro

    The best [way] for Trend Micro [Smart Protection Suite, with XGen] to stand out, would be to install it throughout the network, both computers and servers[.] I recommend this solution for both small companies and very large companies since currently the security of our data is very critical and many times the costs that they lead to when suffering from an attack are too high. [A] system like this is worth investing in.

    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.

    • Documentation is something that can be improved here.
    • Licensing is overly complex and needs to be improved for different features/variations.
    • Install is difficult.

        I have only had to contact technical support once, which in itself shows what a good product this is, and I received spot-on advice from the person I contacted.

        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.

        Everything I've used and installed before and since has been easier to implement and support. TM had attractive pricing, however, that was negated by the overall experience.
