Avanan is an essential tool in every [organization]. It provides a tight-security to mail servers. We have implemented this across all our [organization]. It works seamlessly with our [organization] mail servers. It has anti-malware detection that prevents any kind of threat entering our mail servers. It has proven to be a worthy app. Needless to say its one of the best cloud security app available in the market.
  • Early threat detection
  • Fully automated

  • Supports main stream mail servers like outlook, gmail, etc.
  • Admin controls

  • Process of manually sending mails to quarantine should be quick and improved

Cyber threats have become rapid and unexpected these days. Its better to have Avanan implemented to make sure we [don't] [lose] our valuable data. Avanan has good out of the box integrations such as google drive, one drive etc. It is fully automated and it provides up to date security to fight against any kind of threat.

Avanan is being used across our organization for phishing, malware, and data loss prevention (DLP). It reduced the number of support requests and reduced clutter in end-users inboxes. Avanan provided insight into security breaches. Our end users love the ability to request quarantined emails to be restored with minimal effort.
  • Blocks phishing and malware
  • Reports DLP issues
  • Ease of implementation
  • Flexibility with policies
  • Nothing really
I have been asked, and I will continually recommend Avanan to friends and colleagues. This is a solution that just works. Simple, and easy to install. It took us under 30-minutes to implement. We are continually amazed at how well this product works for our company.
Support has been solid in figuring out the majority of the issues. The normal full response time to an issue is under thirty minutes. The normal resolution to an issue, that depends on the issue. Many times they were already aware of the issue before I reported it.

We use it across all customers. Drops in and easily sits there working side by side with existing products. The issue we faced was that a regular spam filter didn't stop phishing emails. Customers constantly questioned our ability to support them simply because phishing emails get through. Enabling Avanan has solved this problem.
  • Great Support
  • Easy to use
  • Plugs in to multiple platforms
  • Highly effective
  • Lack of quarantine reports
  • 14 day trial only
  • More powerful widgets
We bundle Avanan into all our customer offerings now as it's simply a small cost to cover such a high risk within the business. We position it from a bundled cost so the customer doesn't question the product or need of the product. The impersonation attempt report is great to run to get the point across to decision-makers for any customers where we need to add it as a value-add.
Support has always been there for me, they take on suggestions and product improvements quite seriously. I've spoken to techs and you can tell that they care about the product and the service in which they deliver. Avanan support is always responsive in everything I throw them and in most cases they don't tell me how to build out a widget or custom query, they actually do it for me and send it to me.

Avanan is deployed for our entire business via our Office 365 tenant - this includes email traffic for our U.S. office(s), as well as our offices in Colombia.

We utilize Avanan to ensure we are catching and blocking all of the spam/scam/phishing emails that target our users.
  • The dashboard for Avanan makes all of the most important information easy to digest.
  • Alerting - specifically, the Geo-Location alerts allow us to see if a user has possibly been compromised.
  • The End-User Email Quarantine experience gives users the ability to request emails be released, which trains them to better spot legitimate emails.
  • Occasionally emails slip by and are blocked by Office 365 blacklisting/phishing/security. This causes our end-users to have two different "Release from Quarantine" emails/processes.
  • Creating rules can be a bit confusing, as the more information added to a rule, the more specific it becomes - while this is beneficial for blocking specific things, it can allow emails to get through the rules if it becomes too specific.
  • Navigating through some features can feel confusing if you don't regularly utilize the Avanan dashboard.
Avanan provides complete peace of mind regarding our email security. The ease of use in creating rules for blocking phishing/spam, as well as how easy it was to train End Users to submit quarantine release requests has made our email management as easy as checking a dashboard and pressing a few buttons.

If you're wanting to block phishing messages and have reporting to see what is being blocked at a quick glance, Avanan will function excellently.
Whenever issues arise when using Avanan that are the fault of the product, support is quick to respond and resolve the presented problem(s).

Avanan is being used company-wide for us. It is our main application to detect and block malicious emails containing spam, phishing, malware, and executive impersonation attempts. We also utilize it to verify if one of our accounts has been successfully logged in from outside the US as well as an engine for DLP events to make sure communications and sensitive information is being sent and received securely.
  • Anti-phishing, Avanan does a very good job catching phishing events on a daily basis. I check the dashboard everyday and see it catch some very suspicious emails.
  • Malware, Avanan is very good at catching possible malware content within emails and is proactive in the sense that it quarantines those emails and alerts us the administrators about it.
  • Avanan does a great job at catching DLP events. It has definitely helped us be more secure after seeing how much sensitive data was going through our network prior to having Avanan.
  • Avanan is very good at bringing in more tools that may help us. It is constantly testing out the best applications that would give us as a customer an edge in security.
  • The only thing that I would want to see in Avanan that it currently doesn't have to my knowledge is the ability to pull emails from our user mailboxes in the event that a suspicious email did make it through. We can quarantine them though so not a huge deal but it would be nice to have that functionality.
I would recommend Avanan to anyone who is looking for a system that can detect and act on phishing, malware, DLP, logins outside a selected range, executive impersonation all with very easy integration and excellent customer and tech support. We utilize Google Workspace and so I would highly recommend it to anyone under that platform as well.
Throughout the years I have had to contact Avanan Support. They always answer quickly and always seem to have a real sense of urgency to help me. My issues with their platform are always fixed quickly and when a tech agent doesn't have an immediate answer they go out and get it for me. I am confident in Avanan because I know if something happens they are always there to help and answer my questions and concerns. Their support is also very friendly and always willing to help clarify any doubt as small as it can be.

I am a reseller & MSP. We help our customers to choose the right security products for their infrastructure. We mainly choose Avanan since it is an API-based solution that sits behind the M365 default security layer, hence truly providing the additional layer of protection for M365.
1. No changes in MX records or SPF records hence protected from targeted attacks.
2. Avanan sits behind the default M365 security hence truly adding an additional layer of protection.
3. Default email security from M365 is not bypassed.
4. Protect entire M365 suits including email, teams, one drive & SharePoint which is unique.
5. Scans internal emails as well.
6. Inline protection will scan & protect before the email is delivered in the user mailbox unlike other API vendors.
7. A very strong anti-phishing engine that is smart-phishing and patented inline protection which will protect from the attacks before the email is getting delivered to the user mailbox.
  • Protect the entire cloud suit (eg: email, teams, sharepoint , onedrive, slack etc).
  • No need to change MX record or SPF. No bypassing of default O365 email security hence providing a true multi-layer protection.
  • Scans internal emails as well.
  • Inline protection will scan & protect before the email is delivered to the user mailbox.
  • Very strong anti-phishing engine, very less false positives and a well tuned AI.
  • Shadow IT & Anomaly detections.
  • DLP, sandboxing and email encryption features are available and flexible to choose from different licensing model.
  • Very good MSP model business.
  • Very easy to setup and configure. No downtime required for email services and the setup take hardly 10 minutes.
  • I would like to see the sandboxing as a feature with the basic licenses.
  • Awareness training is an impressive feature to have.
Avanan is well suited for companies using M365 or Gsuite solution. It is well suited to use as an additional layer of protection for M365 MTP or other email security gateway solutions such as Mimecast or Proofpoint etc.. It is appropriate for customers who want to protect the entire suits such as Email, Teams, One Drive ,Sharepoint etc. Avanan is a great product which comes with a specific price range and that is very reasonable but not cheap. So it is not appropriate for customers looking for a very low budget.
An excellent product that came with a unique patented inline protection. The sales, pre-sales, and the technical team answers all your questions without any delay and they are always available to support for PoC or implementation without any additional cost. Avanan's IRaaS is a team of specialized technical engineer who will be answering within minutes.

We are using Avanan for anti-phishing and anti-malware protection for Office 365. We deployed Avanan to our entire organization 3 years ago. When we migrated to Office 365, within a month we were constantly under attack. Phishing attacks leading to compromised accounts leading to more phishing campaigns using those compromised accounts. It was never ending. Microsoft's security was doing nothing to help. We reached out to Avanan. Set up a POC and instantly the attacks stopped. Well, Avanan was stopping them from ever reaching the user's mailboxes. Everyone was happy.
  • Avanan anti-phishing stops phishing attacks dead in their tracks
  • Avanan detects and blocks malicious email attachments
  • Avanan is super simple to setup
  • I'd like to see less false positive detections caused by Microsoft ATP emails
  • I'd like to see better reporting features/dashboards to provide to executives
  • I can't think of a third, they really do everything else great
If you're migrating to Office 365 or are already on that platform I highly recommend Avanan anti-phishing protection. It integrates very well and is super easy to get up and running. When we hosted our own email system we did not have Avanan, so it might not be well suited for self-hosted scenarios. For cloud email its a must!
In my three years using the product I have submitted several support tickets to Avanan support and they respond usually within the hour with a full resolution. I do not recall having a support ticket ever exceed one day. They have also made changes to their product in response to a support ticket. Avanan support is very responsive.

Avanan is being used as our primary email security platform. End-users have the ability to report junk and phishing emails via [the] Outlook plugin, administrators are the ones primarily in the tool on a daily basis. It's our front-line defense against email-based threats and has been doing a good job, has outperformed [our] previous product.
  • Easy to setup
  • Easy to administer
  • Easy to report junk and spam emails
  • Easy to report threats and resolve issues
  • Emails the platform sends out after setup require customization they're very basic and unreadable
  • Support is overwhelmed at this point
  • [The] initial implementation we fast but confusing to a point some things we skipped that were discussed during the demo and never got done when put into production.
If you use Office 365 for email i.e. Exchange Online Avanan will work and integrate without issue and takes a matter of minutes to fully deploy. I don't use a hybrid environment so I can't speak to that. Might not be the solution for you if you're on prem exchange server.
Support is overwhelmed right now at the rate the company is growing. Initial contacts with support are cold, very automated, cookie-cutter replies and responses. Once they get to [work] on your support issue it's all email-based, takes some time, and more often than not there's no solution for what you're asking about. Creating tickets for them is very easy from the portal. I hope with time the support process and knowledge will get better.

Avanan is a great solution and recommend to anyone looking to beef up their email security and are lacking a strong email security solution. I like to call this "low hanging fruit" because it is extremely important to make sure you have a creditable yet effective solution in place to protect your employees from malware and phish attacks, especially in the world we live in today where ransomware is really evolving and becoming more creative to extort businesses. Avanan is a solution that will better protect your organization from these threats while also having a peace of mind and doesn't break the bank.
  • Affordability.
  • Effective at stopping threats.
  • Adaptable.
  • Customer focused.
  • Expandable.
  • User-friendly.
  • Better granular reporting.
  • Only cloud based.
If you're an O365 workshop and utilize all of the supporting applications like Dropbox, Teams, and other cloud based backup applications, than this is the perfect solution to keep your workshop safe and protected from cyber threats. It will catch almost everything and leads the email protection industry with the data to prove it.

Avanan provides an extra layer of security to our cloud mail delivery system. We use this across the whole organization for unified protection. It has great capabilities in detecting any kind of malware and phishing emails to avoid data theft or any data loss. It provides up-to-date protection against any latest threat or viruses.
  • Dashboard
  • Up to date protection.
  • Quick implementation.
  • Support for many cloud storage apps.

Avanan provides protection to fight against any kind of possible threats through its regular updates. It is a must-have application to avoid any data loss or any major threat. Its capable to forecast any possible threat and ensures our servers are not affected by it. Although UI needs refining to be able to be understood by any average user.

It's being used across the entire organization for email security. This prevents phishing, spam, impersonation attempts, and other malicious emails from being delivered to someone's mailbox. It's a tool that allows quit remediation. Implementation is easy and there is minimal impact on the end-user experience. Integration with Office 365 products such as Exchange, SharePoint, Teams, etc. was also valuable to us.
  • Prevents malicious emails from being delivered.
  • No impact on the end-user experience. There is a minimal delay for inbound & outbound emails. URLs are scanned in a non-evasive way as well.
  • Implementation can be done quickly without having to manually configure journal connectors, MX records, or other common items that go with setting up an email security product.
  • The product could use more reporting and analytics.
Avanan works great to protect and secures most cloud and SaaS products. If you are a user of Office 365 (SharePoint, Teams, Exchange, OneDrive, etc.), Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Slack, it makes a great protection and productivity product. Avanan is a security product and can lack some archiving and mass export tools other email security products offer.

Avanan is used to protect our organization from phishing, spam, and malware. We found this when looking for a solution that seamlessly integrated into Google Workspace, was easy to use and administrate, and didn't lead to a ton of false positives or undelivered emails. Avanan also keeps an eye on "Shadow IT" by informing us if someone is using their Google account for a supplier that we don't approve within the organization and anomalies such as someone logging into a Google email account from a new country.
  • Easy to set up
  • Simple to administrate
  • Detections are accurate
  • Doesn't interfere with our business as usual
  • DLP could be more comprehensive
This is suited to businesses of most sizes, where security is of the highest importance but you don't want to end up opening the admin panel every few hours to unblock a perfectly legitimate email (which has been a problem with other solutions we've used).

Avanan is being used to mitigate malicious cyber and phishing email attacks across our MSP clients in connection with Office 365 EOP. It continues on a daily basis to protect user's email with its on-the-fly scanning technology to stop issues before they have the potential to do any damage to the end-user.
  • Easy to use.
  • Protects users email.
  • Portal is clean and easy to navigate.
  • Added spam functionality
This product is great for any users who want extra protection from malicious emails and the piece of mind that end users are protected from things like cyber threats, phishing emails, spoofing, geolocation tracking and other types of email threats.

Avanan has been our safeguard in receiving emails and using cloud storage. We have been victims of numerous phishing attempts, viruses and other threats. Now Avanan manages to eliminate these issues before it gets to us. With this tool we feel completely safe, knowing that we will no longer suffer threats from viruses and other virtual pests that daily flood our emails
  • Quick and hassle-free installation makes Avanan the perfect solution to use. Bluntly is installed and already works
  • Full protection of the entire cloud. Whether by Onedrive, Google Drive... This gives us even more peace of mind and confidence because many of our files are in the cloud
  • There is nothing to dislike in its use
The possibility of protecting email and storage disks in the cloud makes our work much more convenient and peaceful. Our Organization used to receive many fake emails with phishing and malicious links with money orders and the like. With the verification of these emails, there was a situation in which clicking on links or downloading attachments, we suffered attacks from viruses and other pests. Now Avanan does the entire conference automatically and after its deployment we had no more problems

Avanan is a cloud email security platform that we have acquired for use in our organization, where it helps elevate our preparedness to handle multiple threats that evade and permeate our primary antivirus/security platform already in place in our organization. Avanan is used across the whole of our organization and it's effective and helps keep our data safe and secure. It has helped us eliminate the business problem where we fail to add an extra protection platform and counter the effects of cyber-threats.
  • It's invisible and assures guaranteed security across our organization at all times.
  • It's affordable and all organizations, including even the mid-sized ones, are able to be used without any financial difficulties.
  • Keeps our data safe--this has helped build customers' confidence in our business.
  • Sometimes poor internet connections disrupt the perfect usage of the platform in our organization.
Avanan is secure and suits a scenario where a company aims to create and add an additional layer of protection against phishing, malware emails, and other threats while doing so in a cost-effective manner. Avanan will offer protection against any form of malware and keep your data and organization secure.

Avanan is a word-class email security that we use in our organization to protect ourselves from advanced attacks targeting to harm our business processes and platforms. The platform is used in all of our departments and helps protect our organization and data from phishing, malware, and data compromise among others. The platform is built for all organizations and helps us avoid the business problem of living under panic/compromise without cover over any malicious attack thereby risking loss of data and important business processes and information.
  • It's built for use in all organizations including even the SMEs and this allows them to elevate their level of email threat/security.
  • Helps us protect the core business assets and processes such as [Microsoft] Office 365, G-Suite among others thereby elevate the way we work.
  • Scans all of our emails and messages thereby ensure we communicate faithfully and in a secure manner.
  • The platform is accessible through web only and it would be more prudent if the vendor comes up with a mobile version for use in protecting mobile devices.
Avanan is direct to use and fits perfectly in a situation where an organization aims to protect themselves and their assets from malicious attacks leading to loss of data or system compromise. It will offer a layer of protection and flush out any malware, virus or any form of harm from your devices by elevating your email security.
The vendor offers superb customer support services helping all users in using the platform in a reliable manner.

Avanan is being used by our whole organization. We were having some concerns on how Microsoft was missing on few of the emails and passing them through. Avanan was super easy to setup and started to block emails that Microsoft missed. Along with monitoring phishing emails, Avanan also monitors Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox and also Sharepoint.
  • Innovative
  • Great Incident Response Team
  • Protection against Malware
  • No mobile app
  • Beta testing of newer features
Avanan has made our life so much easier, the new dashboard helps identify with an ease. The product works, simple as that. We tried other vendors but Avanan stood out. The technology is very impressive, and the response team is great, our issues were quickly resolved. I would highly recommend Avanan.
At first we had issues with SSO, after reaching out to the support team, they quickly worked with us, and helped us resolve the issue. They also helped/educated us on some of the best practices and helped us setup optimal settings for our environment. I have had several calls with the support team and all issues were resolved quickly.

  • Lastline Threat Emulation
  • Anomalies

The Avanan service is being used by our company and by our daughter companies. The solution addresses the main concerns we had with security, growability, and [being] client/end user friendly. We are a company that grows very fast and with that, we needed to have a solution that supports this business growth with securing our email systems as fast as we can.

Avanan has all those solutions in one platform and [an] easy implementation plan. Avanan will automatically "merge" with Office 365 and create the needed rules, whitelist, and connectors for you the implementer in a matter of minutes after providing the access credentials. After this first initial configuration, it will enter you to the new dashboard for the requested tenant and then let you procced and configure the needed security policies. In a matter of minutes, with easy-to-understand menus, the service will start running and protecting your environment from all kinds of threads.

[For] each protected email, the client/end user will receive an email containing details of the blocked email with full points of why was it blocked, also it will let them release the email, also as a small bonus there is a little url that will lead to a full explanation to about the attack in the email.
  • Security
  • Ease of implementation
  • User friendly
  • Excellent support
  • Ease of use
  • Not a lot of integrations out of the box
Avanan is well suited for protecting emails both for enterprise-level companies and SMB level, it has everything that is needed to protect the company from ongoing cyber-security threads. Some companies have a hybrid solution that provides both email security and an AV/EDR solution. This is not one of them and will only protect your emails and files found on SharePoint and some cloud [platforms such] as Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.
Our company is very picky. We were in contact with support nonstop with most of the departments of the CS of Avanan, from the sales teams and helpdesk teams to some management teams that we had ongoing questions or requests to. Not [once did] we have to wait for long to receive back an answer or a call from the support. They were always positive and even went beyond to provide us some discounts that help us make a quicker decision.

Avanan is used by our entire organization and every user that we have in Office 365. It has addressed the anti-phishing and impersonation issues that were not being handled by our previous solution. It has cut down on the day-to-day routine and simplified management and overall has made our email more secure.
  • Anti-phishing
  • Impersonation protection
  • Ease of use
  • Built-in security awareness training
  • Encryption add-on
Avanan has been perfect for us in our Office 365 environment. We have Avanan covering our email, teams, and OneDrive solutions. It has provided visibility to these aspects of Office 365 that we didn't have before. The API is so smooth and seamless I can't see a scenario where you wouldn't gain value by implementing Avanan.
The very few support tickets I have had to put in have been handled quickly and efficiently.

Avanan is currently being used across our entire organization. The spam/phishing filtering alone has had a tremendous impact. Our users no longer spend a significant portion of their day sifting through email noise to get to essential communications. With the number of users in our organization, we're talking about thousands of messages per day.
  • Excellent anti phishing/anti spam filtering.
  • Excellent customer support.
  • Excellent anti malware.
  • The user interface is a bit cumbersome.
  • Semi steep learning curve.
  • Creating custom filters could be easier.
As previously stated, we use Avanan primarily for anti-spam/phishing filtering. We couldn't happier with its performance in this respect. The anti-malware module is more difficult to rate as we also use Microsoft's O365 anti-malware, but we haven't had a situation where malware has made it through to our users.
There have been several times that I've had to contact Avanan support and they've always been very responsive. They acknowledge my situation within a few hours and typically have a fix for my issue within a few days.

We are resellers and we use it for one of our customers, and it was excellent.

As per the customer opinion, it was an easy implementation and proactively finds phishing emails. It was the first email solution deployed as an app and its advanced machine learning fetches data from Office 365 and prevents email attacks. It deploys in a click.
  • Easy integration
  • Advanced technology
  • Excellent threat detection capabilities
  • Deploy in a click
  • AI-based machine learning
  • Data leakage prevention
  • User anomalies
  • Reporting issues, incorrect information
Avanan is better suited for cloud-based emails like Office 365 and Google Gsuite.
It is deployed as an application. Specialized AI engines are used to catch the missing threats not detected by Microsoft Exchange online, Google filters, and advanced threat protection.

It is not suited for an on-premises exchange server and emails hosted by other email providers.

Avanan is being used across the whole organization. Avanan helps filter potentially harmful emails that are received by our team members. Sending and receiving emails is part of our day-to-day lives and we sometimes handle sensitive information we can't afford to be in the hands of cybercriminals. With Avanan, we feel secured.
  • Filters potential phishing emails well
  • The notification email shows a good amount of detail
  • In the email notification, it would be a great idea to include a link where we can see the email content. Currently, the only option is to release the email which I am hesitant to click.
Well suited for organizations like ours. Any threat can cause a lot of damage to the business.
