Cofense Phishing Defense Center (PDC) has saved our team copious amounts of time that we would usually have to spend sifting through all of the hundreds of emails that are reported each day. Having a dedicated team to sort the true positives from the false positives gives ample amount of time to triage the more severe threats that have been reported.

If trying to ensure the email is secure from a certain degree of threats like spam, ransomware and even phishing attacks than Sophos Secure Email Gateway is the answer. In our organization, it's been implemented and none of the security incidents related to those attacks that rooted from email is reported. And Sophos Secure Email Gateway has one of the best email encryption methods we found on the market.
Read full review Pros Instant detection and elimination of phishing email boxes. Easy to set up. Intuitive and complete GUI interface, being able to create rules, configure exceptions, and generate reports. Optimizes time to eliminate phishing and prevent users from being targeted by internet scams. Good artificial intelligence. Read full review We could customize it to have a certain level of workflow. We manage to enforce certain email (based on key-phrases) to be quarantined before send it to the recipient. And the email needs to be approved (manually) before being released. For certain type (using regex) of email, we will encrypt it if it's sent outside our organization domain. Scalable Read full review Cons Better integration with established ticketing systems Ability to determine if there were any other recipients of the same email Technical issues when logging into the tool Read full review Rules processing does not perform impersonation filtering properly. For example, if the email gets classified as spam the impersonation rule is not processed against it. This means your users will release these quarantined emails to their inboxes. Impersonation rules should be a top-level rule. The product boasts it has AI and advanced processing but regularly lets credential harvesting emails through constantly. URL filtering does not block them and when they are reported it takes up to an hour to block the malicious URL in the filtering. This is too slow since users typically are clicking on these links in emails within minutes Support is nonchalant with no sense of urgency. They don't follow simple requests for contact hours and will reach out to you hours after your day has ended. Support engineers agree with you that the product fails to meet standards and think this is an ok thing. Emails will get rejected by unknown filters and require research to be done against logs by Sophos support. This is absurd, if an email is blocked it should not require a support ticket for investigating The processing of rules is inconsistent. The same email from the same email address and same IP address is classified as SPAM for some and allowed for others Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It was easy to use and easy to implement. You don't need previous knowledge on the products, after we got this up and running, it took us hours to put everything together. The transition was easy and seamless.

It's mostly great and for policies and features, it does everything we would ask it to and more. The only thing keeping it from being a 10 is the lack of granularity in the reporting, which is actually an issue within Sophos Central as a whole. The ability to drill down from dashboards into accurate, detailed data would be very helpful at times.

Each time we're contacting Sophos Email Support we are getting a very quick answer and when it is urgent the local team can even do an escalation in such way to handle the situation in urgency; once done, we are called the same day, sometimes the same hour to see how to help us unblock our issue and find a way out.

I have only tried Sophos Email, and I find it to be a very useful tool, as it protects against information leakage such as fraudulent emails, cloud sandboxing and quarantine, which are essential functions and the product works excellent.
Read full review Return on Investment Reduced volume to support teams. Provided in-house resources time to work on other projects. Provides a clean and effective interface with teammates. Read full review Sophos Email has been protecting our users, including the administrative branch, who are the target of attacks most frequently. Every month Sophos Email stops about 100,000 malicious emails. We calculate that if these attacks have saved the company time, it prevents us from having a lot of support staff to attend to the cases. Read full review ScreenShots
