    Proofpoint

    I would definitely recommend it for fast and easy deployment with no need of constant managing solution. It is a solid solution that will do all what you need for the email security. Especially when you have a small IT team or even do not have enough experienced specialists to handle email security questions - Proofpoint is what I would recommend to use. I gave it 9 of 10 points only because of the price, you can find find more cheap solutions on the market.

    Trustwave

    In a medium company, it is suited since the cost can be high for a smaller one.
    I think there are better and more complete products for companies with higher volume or levels of confidentiality. While it is a good product, today there are several that exceed it in quality and functionality.

    Trustwave

    • By having the physical appliance, it is more granular the control that is had of the users, which also accelerates the speed of detection of threats.
    • The few options of DLP that it has are very useful when filtering sensitive data, but I stress "few".
    • The interface is intuitive, but for more advanced options, it requires a higher than average knowledge of these systems.

    Cons

    Proofpoint

    • I don't have [a lot] of bad things to say about the software its all positives in my book

    Trustwave

    • I know it is not a DLP since there is another specific product for it, but they could do it just a little easier for the average user.
    • An intuitive interface in a broader aspect, not only in the basic functions.
    • The option only in the cloud is good, but only the appliance offers all the functionalities.

        Unfortunately all these products are better in almost all aspects. It is not to discredit the Trustwave, but they have much to improve in this area.
