    Well suited: Proofpoint does a pretty good job at protecting us from spam emails. I was able to block a lot of emails coming from SendGrid by blocking SendGrid emails with a custom spam filter. However, SendGrid has a lot of legit emails too so I was able to create another rule to allow those emails from certain people, then block the rest. That way business need was met but spam emails are blocked. Less Appropriate If you are trying to monitor internal to internal emails Proofpoint is probably a little over featured for that.

    RMail is great for sending emails with information that is sensitive but that the recipient is not going to put a lot of work into retrieving. I do psychological evaluations for criminal courts and I use it to send reports to courts and attorneys. I need to use something compatible with HIPAA privacy rules, which courts and attorneys are typically not as concerned about. If they had to use a password or go to an outside web address to retrieve the email, they wouldn't do it. It's also common for an attorney to say they didn't get an email, but I always know if they did or not, and I have clear documentation of it, which is important in legal cases.

    Pros

    Proofpoint

    • Spam - catches these emails before hitting the inbox.
    • Daily digest - provides users with a list of the emails that were blocked and allows them to choose to release them if they are legitimate emails.
    • Ensures that emails coming into our organization is safe for our users and verifies the email is coming from stated senders email server.

    RPost

    • Read receipts tell you the time a message was actually opened
    • The electronic signature feature is nice, and usually not included with these types of services
    • Many times, a recipient doesn't need a password to open their email. RMail leverages TLS technology in most cases
    • Recipients do have the option of creating an account, but generally they don't need to
    • Outlook integration is very easy to set up
    • Gmail integration within Chrome is pretty amazing

    Cons

    Proofpoint

    • Proofpoint could offer more frequent training opportunities to customers at all levels of expertise.
    • Proofpoint can always continue to strive to keep its product a leader in the industry.
    • Proofpoint's support site could be overhauled to provide a more logical flow.

    • Program plug-in crashes on occasion.
    • Issues can arise if your computer's clock is not synced to RMail's time servers.
    • Setup was initially tedious (but has gotten much better since 2019).

      I don't think RPost has any competition, at least none that I can use. I think that once registered email becomes widely accepted (someday soon?), it will be indispensable for anyone in business, and RPost is the leading vendor (maybe the only vendor).

      Usability

      Proofpoint

      Very robust and solid product in protecting our emails. The engineers who assisted with our implementation was very knowledgable and great to work with. Easy to use by end-users. Administration and management are also easy for IT. Great dashboard and reporting tools for business reviews.

      It is as simple as downloading a plug-in or installing a chrome extension, then you click a button to use it. The interface is straightforward.

      Performance

      Support Rating

      Proofpoint

      We use ProofPoint support quite often to fix issues and assist with setting up features and rules. Each time we have created a ticket, they have been very helpful and respectful. Each ticket has been treated with the appropriate SLA time and attention. We also enjoy the regular check-ins from the engineers when tickets are open but we get busy with other tasks.

      Support is easy to access via email or phone. They also reach out to you periodically with new features, but they aren't intrusive about it. I usually appreciate it when I get an email from RMail, which is not very often.

      Alternatives Considered

      Proofpoint

      We previously used halon anti-spam, which lasted us well until our organization really started to grow and it was not able to keep up with the amount of mail we were receiving. The support is also nothing compared to Proofpoint's professional services offering. Halon was also not able to have the complex rules that Proofpoint can offer.

      RMail is really useful when wanting to send important encrypted information, and have control of what happens on the other end. It also comes with a complete set of features that help in any other way you can imagine. I've been through other products, and nothing compares to it.

      Scalability

      Proofpoint

      You can add a lot of agents to your environment if you need them. And you can operate hardware appliances and virtual appliances in the same cluster.

      Return on Investment

      Proofpoint

      • Having easy-to-reach backups of all employee emails has made Proofpoint worth it by itself. That plus the countless times that spam/malicious emails did not make it through to the intended person that could have potentially cost the organization a lot of money.

      RPost

      • There's not much ROI, because we don't get it much cheaper than the list price.
      • However, being able to offer this service strengthens our service offerings.
