Lux Scientiae (LuxSci)
Apparently secure website hosting and email. Perhaps could have some better background on common website features.

Comparable to a Barracuda email appliance, these units retain email that is quarantined as well as provide cloud layer to support it. It is best suited for a medium size company as the devices are often not as scalable as Barracuda.

  • The onsite appliances have end-of-life forcing an upgrade to new unit.
  • Many of the appliances have been end-of-life and seems McAfee may not be offering the service in the future.

Barracuda provides two product options, the ESS cloud-only filtering, and onsite Email Security Gateway appliances. Unless compliance needs require the on-premises device, the ESS option easily beats the McAfee Email Gateway.

Return on Investment
Lux Scientiae (LuxSci)
  • Cost-effective. I manage (poorly) multiple websites myself & with the help of Luxsci tech support.
  • Generally, things work.
  • I wish they had more info on what I think are common issues with websites or email.

  • The end-of-life of appliances is unfortunate as it forces a purchase of a replacement unit. Barracuda devices have a 4-year refresh cycle so purchasing additional hardware is rarely necessary.
  • McAfee seems to be phasing out the service over time.
