Kiteworks
Kiteworks is very good for securely sharing files external to your company and doing so without your customers knowing who each other are. The interface is simple and relatively intuitive. We have had some issues in getting timely support from Accellion this past year, but they seem to be doing better lately.

If you don't want to have any spam or malware in your mailbox, Symantec Email Security.cloud is the solution to choose. Also, if you need to have some security features, like DLP, it has them embedded!
We have also been using reporting a lot to see how many emails have been sent, where they delivered, and so on.

Cons
Kiteworks
  • Encrypting our files appears to be less than 100% complete
  • Software updates cannot be scheduled to take place automatically like their old product
  • Detailed activity logging is not available to administrators. You must submit the logs to Accellion for analysis.

  • Outbound encryption could be improved to allow for advanced connections to other organizations' PKI keyservers.
  • The user interface could be a little more friendly, finding advanced features sometimes takes a little more time with hunting and clicking to get to the correct page.

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
Kiteworks
The main reason for selecting Kiteworks is that when sharing files with multiple customers, each customer has no idea who the other customers are. To do that in Teams would require users to create a private team for each customer, which would be very [time-consuming].

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.
