Likelihood to Recommend
I would consistently recommend this as a great option to both send and receive sensitive client data in an effective and documented manner. In the audit industry, with the forwarding of sensitive financial and personal information, security and encryption are the biggest factors that our clients demand. DataMotion provides these characteristics and allows our clients to send information without concern or hesitation. Additionally, from an audit perspective, being able to have a tracking mechanism for when an email is opened/read also allows for us to maintain an accurate timeline of information flow.

Larger corporations that require identity-based encryption would benefit from the product. Smaller corporations that want a more feature-rich product with a better user experience would not benefit as much

Ongoing view of email usage on our network as well as a view of all email viruses hitting our mail servers Read full review Cloud-based portal making it easier to implement for smaller businesses Plug ins for Outlook and Office 365 email apps to make one-button encryption easier for users to activate. For Office apps like Word et al you have a special menu that you can add users to your senders and specify access rights to encrypt your messages from within these apps. An add-on utility to encrypt any sized files is part of the package. Many of its competitors have limits on email attachment size, this is a way around these limits. The product does support integration with a third-party tool from Digital Guardian (https://digitalguardian.com/) for DLP features.

It doesn't support IMAP connections, unlike some of its competitors. Read full review Usability
I could see DataMotion being used anywhere that needs to send confidential data or information within our outside of the workplace. This platform sends and receives emails securely. Also, the DataMotion support team response time is very helpful/appreciated and they will help you get things up and running quickly. I would definitely recommend [it].

Responses always seem timely and the support seems to be pretty good. We haven't really had any major issues with the software yet, so I that's the reason I gave only an 8. If something more difficult were to pop up, I'd have a little more to say on the support for the product.

We can not afford Cisco products; in the end, everything we require is on the software side, not the hardware side. Also, we are trying to move away from these bulky appliance-type concepts of secure documentation and communication integrations. This federated easy, fast and multi-disciplinary API systems DataMotion has provided us is precisely what we need.

I think SecureMail is showing its age -- it is based on the Voltage product that HPE purchased a few years ago and hasn't really been updated since then substantially. Its documentation and web portal aren't as useful as some of the other products, and
has better DLP integration that is part of the base product, rather than an add-on
Read full review Return on Investment DataMotion has had a positive return on investment due to the fact that we have to post less, avoid postal fees, and ensure security. DataMotion has decreased the amount of compliance required when sending out information; when posting documents, we would have previously had to have documents checked by compliance for security, but now we can issue these clients directly. Everyone in the company uses DataMotion; this has saved both time and money because of the decreased number of letters being drafted; it has created a more efficient workforce and boosted productivity.
