Cons

FortiMail

  • I would like to see a recommended config come base on the box.

Cody McNeill | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Email Security.cloud

  • Searching within the console can be slow at times, especially when making small tweaks and refreshing quickly
  • Features seem to have slowed down since Symantec acquired this formerly "MessageLabs" product
  • Advanced filtering and scanning is not quite as good as several competitors

Any time I've had to use the support, it has been great! They always will recommend certain options, as well as explain what they do and why they are there. The support always gets back to me the same day, and are always pleasant to deal with. I never hesitate to call.

In very tricky cases, it takes time to explain it to the support personnel as they don't get your problem from the first couple of emails.

Alternatives Considered

FortiMail

FortiMail works much better than the previous product we used, McAfee Email Gateway.
Tom Parker | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Email Security.cloud

Barracuda's ESS is the premier product, it boasts outbound email encryption as an included service as well as all of the security features of Symantec Email Security.cloud. Sophos is on the same level as SES.c but is not quite as feature rich.

Return on Investment

FortiMail

  • Less virus detected by computer, stopped before.
  • Way less fishing attempts.
  • Doesn't need too much resources.
Tommy Boucher | TrustRadius Reviewer

Symantec Email Security.cloud

  • Our previous solution was very manual. The ROI has been in less manual intervention from the admins and freeing up their already busy schedules.
