    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.

    It is very well suited for an organization that wants to protect inbound email and use just one product. It may be less appropriate for an organization that is small or has a limited IT support staff.

        Broadcom

        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

        Broadcom

        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.

        Without mentioning some of the other products by name, I can tell you that Symantec Messaging Gateway is one of the best.

        Return on Investment

        Broadcom

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

        Broadcom

        • It would be difficult to determine the exact ROI Symantec Messaging Gateway had on your overall business. However, I can assure you the downtime suffered due to inbound email threats has been reduced to nearly zero in our environment. If IT isn't chasing down ransomware/phishing issues and users aren't staring at a quarantined PC, life is good.
        • There are no negative impacts on ROI that I can think of.
