    Every responsible employer who take the duty of care towards their employees very seriously should use DataMotion SecureMail to prevent their employees from receiving inappropriate materials in their inbox because dealing with high spam load is a productivity drain and a serious network issue.

    AppRiver is great for both small and large organizations. Small businesses are unlikely to have much if any technical support staff available to them, for which AppRiver would be a great help. Likewise for large companies, having AppRiver can save your tech support team from dealing with basic, common, and repetitive application support, and allowing them to better focus on more important tasks at hand.

    Pros

    DataMotion

    • The software is able to scan and block email threats such as malware, viruses, spamming, and other threats.
    • DataMotion is very accurate and fast in dealing with email threats.
    • The software helps enhance data privacy by offering features such as email encryption and decryption.

    • Very useful daily quarantine list emailed to users.
    • Suspicious emails can be viewed online in their sandbox to check validity before releasing from quarantine.
    • Multiple ways to filter emails (domain, email address, text, etc)
    • Link protection is one of the newest options available and we absolutely love it!!

    Cons

    DataMotion

    • The address book interface to add users could be made simpler
    • The copy and paste feature could be improved
    • When composing an email the system should automatically search address book to provide less typing of Contact names already existing as a send to the person

    • They do not support DMARC and DKIM at this time and I don't know when or if they ever will.
    • Their SPF record is not great and can possibly cause issues, at least that is what my support company has told me.
    • Scanning of links in emails seems super limited and or non-existent. THings get through with completely bad malicious all the time and I assume they are not scanning them or they don't have a proper AV on their end.
    • Once a domain is whitelisted any bad emails that may be spoofing that email domain are let through and no other filters apply to the emails. It's frustrating to have to white list 20+ individual email addresses from a company and not be able to white list just the domain and not feel secure doing that.

    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].

    AppRiver is very easy to use. A new employee can begin using it on their first day.

    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.

    AppRiver's live support is above what I expected, and I use it exclusively. I always get a professional, courteous, and knowledgeable tech that is easy to understand within a few minutes of placing a call. If you do have to leave a message they have always promptly returned my call.

    Alternatives Considered

    DataMotion

    The price of DataMotion is very reasonable and not an extra like other solutions we looked at. DataMotion SecureMail ensures that data is scanned for the latest malware and viruses before it gets to our network. Can be customized based on the policies we wish to apply to our users.
    Daniel Cooper | TrustRadius Reviewer

    AppRiver, from Zix

    AppRiver requires the least amount of management time, the pricing is better and the minimums are such that almost all SMB's won't be buying shelfware. If you are an MSP, become a partner and you will see spam problems become a thing of the past.

    Return on Investment

    DataMotion

    • With the ability to send and receive emails securely, we never have to worry about data privacy and protection policies.
    • We can work confidently without having to worry about spamming, malware, viruses, among other email threats.
    • In a nutshell, DataMotion gives us peace of mind.

    • Provides a real sense of security knowing that I have somewhere to fall back on.
    • Have not yet been able to see a real return on investment since I went from doing it all in-house to farming it out completely.
    • The overall stability of the network/mail environment has greatly improved.
