DataMotion Secure Email

I think DataMotion SecureMail is better suited for small to mid range companies. It provides a nice add-in that allows you to choose to send an e-mail securely. Most of the users in our company aren't too happy with change, but it was quite easy to set up and have them start using it with very little blowback and complaints.

Proofpoint Email Protection

Well suited:Proofpoint does a pretty good job at protecting us from spam emails. I was able to block a lot of emails coming from SendGrid by blocking SendGrid emails with a custom spam filter. However, SendGrid has a lot of legit emails too so I was able to create another rule to allow those emails from certain people, then block the rest. That way business need was met but spam emails are blocked. Less AppropriateIf you are trying to monitor internal to internal emails Proofpoint is probably a little over featured for that.

Proofpoint Email Protection

  • Spam - catches these emails before hitting the inbox.
  • Daily digest - provides users with a list of the emails that were blocked and allows them to choose to release them if they are legitimate emails.

Cons

DataMotion Secure Email

  • We ran into an issue where if you BCC'ed yourself on an email it showed the recipient that you did it
  • Plugged into Outlook as part of Office 365, DataMotion sometimes gets disabled based on its slowness
  • You have to know how to Sweep the Inbox periodically to get the DataMotion messages to show up in Outlook instead of having to use the web interface
  • I wish it would force my users to change their passwords every 60-90 days and would let me set that as the admin

Proofpoint Email Protection

  • Proofpoint could offer more frequent training opportunities to customers at all levels of expertise.
  • Proofpoint can always continue to strive to keep its product a leader in the industry.
  • Proofpoint's support site could be overhauled to provide a more logical flow.

It is extremely easy for us to use. However, some clients attempting to spontaneously generate messages to us have complained about the difficulty of signing in (I think this is when they don't say they are new users and they try to sign in using other credentials like Google, Apple, etc.).

Very robust and solid product in protecting our emails. The engineers who assisted with our implementation was very knowledgable and great to work with. Easy to use by end-users. Administration and management are also easy for IT. Great dashboard and reporting tools for business reviews.

Most important thing is the performance of processing mails. Even in a complex environment the system keeps performing on a very high Level.

We have great internal IT support and external vendor support for DataMotion SecureMail. Of the few instances where we had to setup client add-on, the setup was fast, easy, and convenient. Usage is straightforward. Once we get the hang of sensitivity surrounding information, it is easy to protect with DataMotion SecureMail.

We use ProofPoint support quite often to fix issues and assist with setting up features and rules. Each time we have created a ticket, they have been very helpful and respectful. Each ticket has been treated with the appropriate SLA time and attention. We also enjoy the regular check-ins from the engineers when tickets are open but we get busy with other tasks.

DataMotion Secure Email

DataMotion Secure Email integrated fully with no extra setup for our 100% coverage situation. Once in, there's no ongoing burden (from the product) that needed to be managed.

Proofpoint Email Protection

We previously used halon anti-spam, which lasted us well until our organization really started to grow and it was not able to keep up with the amount of mail we were receiving. The support is also nothing compared to Proofpoint's professional services offering. Halon was also not able to have the complex rules that Proofpoint can offer.

You can add a lot of agents to your environment if you need them. And you can operate hardware appliances and virtual appliances in the same cluster.

Return on Investment

DataMotion Secure Email

  • The ability to send secure emails quickly.
  • Confirmation that the person you wanted to see this information has seen it by getting a notification they opened your email.
  • The only negative impact I can think of is that you can't send huge documents, have to break those up into other emails.
Katie Scafidi | TrustRadius Reviewer

Proofpoint Email Protection

  • Having easy-to-reach backups of all employee emails has made Proofpoint worth it by itself. That plus the countless times that spam/malicious emails did not make it through to the intended person that could have potentially cost the organization a lot of money.
