Forcepoint Email Security

Forcepoint Email Security is perfect for set and forget. Very little do I need to get in and that's to tailor a policy there are minimal issues I have encountered since using the product.

Trend Micro Smart Protection Suite, with XGen

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.

The support could be better, but the good thing is rarely having to call them.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Forcepoint Email Security

Since Forcepoint is used widely in our organization, the integration between DLP web and Mail is amazing, and I didn’t find a good reason to split services between vendors if I have all the package in one place

Trend Micro Smart Protection Suite, with XGen

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.
