Avanan helps our business to protect cloud emails against cyber attacks and threats, also, it helps us to remove the viruses in the spam folder.
  • Most Affordable.
  • Easy To Use.
  • Lot Of Advanced Features.
  • Prevents From Phishing Attacks.
  • End To End Encryption.
  • Initial Setup takes lots of time.
  • Sometimes Avanan detects normal mails as spam mails.
Earlier, we struggled a lot because of lots of spam emails hitting our inboxes daily; after using Avanan, it reduces the spam mail. And this results in the growth of our business.

Avanan provides a great user experience with its unique capabilities. You will have to give less than 10 minutes to implement this. One of the most important reason why we deployed Avanan in our organisation is to tighten our security, and believe me it is a game changer for us. It protect us from different ransomware, phishing attacks, etc. It is one of the best email security solution and meets all our needs.
  • Save from different viruses attacks
  • Integration
  • Simple user interface
  • price
  • little bugs
I will always recommend Avanan to my colleague due to its versatility. It provides a great dashboard in which you can manage everything very quickly. It regularly check our emails and if any suspicious email detected then it automatically blocks it, which reduce the security risk of our organisation. It is very effective mechanism against malware and viruses. This tool is very potent, it also checks the URLs that contain viruses. It has a responsive support team which is very fast.

Email security is one of the most important aspect of our business processes. Avanan assists us in the protection of emails of our organization. It safeguards our emails right after Microsoft has scanned the email for any threats and before the email reaches the end user. Thus, Avanan adds an extra layer of security over and above the existing threat prevention security measures.
  • Cloud email security
  • Additional layer of security
  • False positives can be annoying sometimes
I would highly recommend Avanan for its ability to deal with malicious viruses that may infect our incoming emails. Avanan blocks such infected emails which may have escaped the already existing layers of security.

This tool protects our mailboxes from phishing email attacks. My most favourite feature is hyperlink check which checks the hyperlinks in the emails to confirm legality of those website links.
  • If any threat is detected it will send an alert
  • Easy to use
  • It acts as overprotective and flags non threat emails. Threat alerts are not trustable at all times.
It’s important that all companies should protect their data privacy. Avanan protects companies from data loss and secures data. It blocks all types of internet threats and protects our mailbox from malicious attacks.

We primarily use Avanan as a email security tool. One of the major challenges that we were facing earlier was the inflow of many malicious emails. The default security provided by the email tool was not enough and moreover there was no restriction in sharing these emails internally. With the introduction of Avanan drilling down into important summary statistics became that much more easy with its slide down menus.
  • Impressive Slide down menus
  • Responsive Security dashboard and design
  • Unified search query box helping find users much quicker.
  • The server uptime status is not very easily visible as it is tucked at the top right
  • Initially some threat free emails were blocked which was a major hindrance for us. But overtime, these errors reduced
  • The initail set up and implementation could be faster
Avanan offers excellent support in blocking out phishing and malicious emails. In fact, one of the best things with Avanan is that it is deployed more like an mobile application. The security dashboards provides an indepth insights into the Malware and Phishing security events. Additionally, Avanan extends its security to other cloud based applications like Slack and Google drive too which helps us keep our data safe and secure

We used this Avanan checkpoint tool to validate its functionality and email protection and to be able to compare it against other security tools on the market, it really is good, it was better than expected. With the acquisition of this tool, checkpoint manages to have a great first-line security coverage worldwide. It really is a very complete tool.
  • A very important feature is that it protects all the collaborative tools of the mail solution, such as office 365.
  • It has protection against ransonware.
  • An easy tool to implement.
  • I would like to find more documentation to implement and learn about the tool without the need to do a trial.
  • I would also like to be integrated into the infinity checkpoint portal.
  • They should pay attention to improving the level of support.
It really is a fairly advanced tool against modern threats, ideal for banking companies. Its ease of implementation is perfect for companies with small IT departments that use tools with full security power and little administration. Ideal for companies, the cost can prevent small companies from being able to acquire it.

Avanan has been a boon to us, with a recent surge in cases of email hacking/phishing and ransomware it has made it hard to focus and work without anyone worrying and Avanan has eliminated that issue, with its top-class email security we don’t need to worry about data leaks.
  • Blocks phishing threats.
  • Has great dashboard which helps in handling multiple users.
  • Can work collaboratively with Office365 and Slack.
  • The price is a little high considering small scale industries.
  • Sometimes detects regular mails as spam too even though contact is trusted.
  • Can improve the dashboard to help improve the user experience.
Avanan is suited for any software-based company which has and handles a lot of data that is either important or sensitive and a leak can cause a major halt or issue for the company. It also helps in preventing mistakes especially made by junior members or interns, it works as a great safety net.

Avanan provides world-class email security for my organisation. I am using Avanan to safeguard against any Phishing emails or Malware. It even helps me ensure my company is following all the compliances. Avanan has great Integration support, which makes it a plug-and-play tool for my GSuite Account.
  • Avanan protects against phishing mails which are very common nowadays.
  • It even safeguards against Malware which is important to protect my system from any ransomware attacks.
  • Avanan has good connectivity with Gsuite, Microsoft Outlook, and all well-known email service providers.
  • Avanan sometimes flags important mails as security risk which could be improved.
  • Its support team is a bit slow, maybe because of its large customer base, but it can be improved.
  • Their UI/UX can also be improved to introduce more modern design.
Avanan can be used for ensuring top-level security for email communications of enterprises, but it is a bit costly for small businesses. So if your business is of very high value or you have to store sensitive information or protect against malware attacks, the use of Avanan is recommended. Avanan, though a bit costly, is essential software to protect your system from the external world.

I have used Avanan basic plan as a single user within my organization. So basically I used Avanan to secure my emails and Office 365 collaboration. Avanan maintains good security measures with multiple checkpoints to detect most harmful threats such as phishing, hijacking and ransomware programs. I think Avanan is user friendly as we can simply standardize our security across the organization using a single dashboard view.
  • Malware protection
  • File scanning on the entire cloud
  • Multiple checkpoints to detect account hijacking
  • Basic plan is lack of sandboxing features
  • They could improve spam filters to automatically whitelist our frequent mail addresses
  • They should consider adding more collaborative tools other than Slack and Office
Avanan is better with almost all the security features available within its suite. They especially take more safety precautions when analysing login events and user activities across all the cloud applications used by the organization to detect any compromised accounts. Most interesting thing is Avanan can detect those accounts even if that breach has happened long time before.

Avanan has been a very comprehensive email security which allows the organization is safe and free from any phishing attacks. It is also support API integration with other products such as Office 365 and G-Suite. Overall deployment is quite straight forward and easy to implement. Besides, it also comes with advanced features such as machine learning and automation which helps to reduce the operational and administration tasks.
  • Reduce phishing attacks
  • API integrations
  • Anomaly detections
  • API integrations are complex
  • SmartDLP require more time for data classifications
  • Dashboard is not very user-friendly
Avanan provides anomaly detections which helps to identify any suspicious user activity and events which may lead to any potential email threats. It is also having AI features which able to identify and learn the patterns of the user behavior and determine the differences. Besides, it is not only protecting the on-premise email servers but email solutions which hosted in the cloud.

We use it to secure our inboxes. As a large company, we are getting many spams, Avanan takes care of it.
  • very good detection rate
  • one time set up is enough for a long time
  • resolution time is super fast
  • support is little late (but is not needed very often)
I think it's more suited for companies which have large number of employees, where employees are less educated in technical fields, like internet security.. there are more chances of getting malicious e-mails, hence products like avanan are more needed.

Avanan is a cloud-based anti-phishing and anti-spam application that helps users handle threats. The UI is very simple and the majority of tasks can be completed without having to leave the Avanan interface. G Suite is also easily integrated with the product. This program has saved us a lot of time in terms of tracking down spam/phishing emails, attempting to prevent them, and responding to enquiries about them.
  • Easy to use
  • Detailed reports
  • Easy integration with G Suite
  • Overpriced
Our company has benefited greatly from spam protection. We work with a lot of third-party vendors, and it's important to know whether an email is spam or not. The banners section, on the other hand, can be improved. The most appealing aspect is that Avanan seamlessly integrates with G Suite, ensuring the safety and security of my coworkers.

Avanan is an affordable email security solution. This product offers the possibility to support multiple email domains. It also provides a customizable email policy for phishing and spam. Additional options are available to protect your team, SharePoint, and DLP. You can easily search for emails and perform actions. You have the option to view the body of the email. Attachments are scanned for viruses. The links in the body of the email have been rewritten to provide secure links that users can click on. Overall it's a great product for the price and doesn't require a Ph.D. Use the product. They also offer free online training videos.
  • Provides optimal Email security
  • User Interface has room for improvement
Avanan is specifically for email security. It is almost perfect doing that. On the other hand, it cannot augment Microsoft filters.

  • Protects emails from phishing
  • Identifies any threat and helps in secure communication
  • Easy connection via Api
  • Smarter identification of spam emails
This is a pretty good software for a safe and secure email service.

We had a really critical security problem in our infrastructure and our information technology team recommended Avanan to help us fight against things like phishing attacks. We've found that Avanan is great at what it does. It offers enterprise-level protection, with an intuitive dashboard that makes it easy to see how susceptible your organization is to these dangers.
  • Great against attacks
  • Easy integration
  • Protection from ransomware attacks
  • Easy data processing
  • UI needs to be improved
  • Advanced backups on Mac
  • With mobile application may it good
  • insights management
We mainly communicate with the use of email. Lots of mail from our clients and teammates cross borders for business necessities alike. Avanan has protected us from threats of malware, which we could otherwise find in a legitimate business email, as well as spam. This way, when potentially harmful emails are found they can be quarantined quickly, saving us both time and money!

During my work, Avanan found and removed each and every malware threat from my system. As the engine is cloud-based, all analytics run on the cloud server and do not use any processing on our devices. It caused virtually no impact on any of my Windows and Mac laptops, even during intensive scans of the entire drive.
  • Simple interface and a secure Firewall.
  • Easy to use password manager.
  • Good protection of the webcam.
  • VPN (with unlimited data).
  • Cloud storage.
  • Ransomware protection.
  • Difficulty regarding Mac optimization and cleanup tools.
  • Advanced backups on Mac are quite time consuming.
It offers advanced settings for users who know how to customize their antivirus protection. We can perform custom scans of specific parts of our computer, such as scripts, networks, boot sectors, and even new/changed files. Advanced settings make it one of the most powerful and customizable anti-malware scanning engines on the market. However, it is not just an antimalware scanner, it is one of the most complete security suites on the market, and it offers us the best protection for both our computers and our mobiles.

Avanan has helped us help clients better protect their data infrastructure at an amazing speed as it does not require further proxy or capabilities. It has helped protect some of the largest enterprise cloud applications we deploy for clients and minimum disturbance. It is particularly suited for our large clients who are sensitive to this.
  • Security of comms
  • Great against attacks
  • Protects sensitive data
  • Usability
  • Price point
  • Banners
This has enabled us to help clients protect themselves against malicious external attacks such as protecting their employees from phishing in employee inboxes. It has proved very easy to deploy with minimal disturbance for the workforce, a key point. It has proved to work well with integrations with other applications too.

This is a great product and very easy to implement and use. The dashboard is easy to follow and not overwhelming with too much information. You do have the option to drill down to more info which is great. I also like the new feature that was recently released, secure click. This feature tests any embedded hyperlinks and ensures they are saved to click. Great product and very useful.
  • blocking spam emails
  • secure click
  • providing usable dashboard/reports
  • n/a
I think this is a great product. But since cybersecurity and phishing attacks are always changing, no solution is perfect. But what I have experienced and the feedback I have gotten from my peers show true value in this product.

I use Avanan for its security purposes, it assists in helping our IT team protect all the databases in the company. Recently, the company had a lot of hacker attacks, phishing, etc. The user interface is much better in comparison to other brands out in the market. The initial deployment was very easy and user-friendly. Overall, a great system that helps businesses protect from common malware, scams, phishing attacks, etc.
  • Protects businesses from malware and phishing attacks
  • Easy implementation
  • User-friendly
  • Security email virus attack mitigation
  • It can sometimes block emails that are not phishing attempts or do not appear to be initially.
  • It sometimes has difficulty running various queries at same time.
  • It can crash on occasion when overwhelmed.
This software is well-suited for a company that is looking to protect its data from common security breaches. It is very user-friendly and easy to implement, which is why these few things make it easily usable on a daily basis. This software also allows for much faster cloud performance and provides regular reports which provide security analytics.

Avanan is a simple and powerful anti-phishing and spam cloud-based tool that helps combat threat on a day-to-day basis. It comes with a great AI and UI but it can be improved. Overall it's a great tool that helps make analysts and admins work more easily and saved tons of time.
  • Simple UI
  • Handling large data
  • Buggy UI can be fixed
  • Integration can be made better
Avanan is very well suited for use in a large enterprise environment where there are multiple users who receive tons of emails that are phishing or spam. It's less appropriate in financial sectors or businesses that have lots of transaction emails, as Avanan's AI gets confused sometimes when scanning emails and they end up being bypassed.

Avanan is advanced email security that protects from any kind of cyber attack. It's directly integrated into Outlook and blocks any kind of phishing and spam emails. It detects spam emails very effectively and reduces the risk of data leakage. It also offers very great data loss protection functionalities. It reports the threats to the system admin and sends immediate alerts. It offers protection to Office 365 apps as well.
  • Office 365 integration
  • DLP functionality
  • Effectively blocks phishing and spam mails
  • Reports threats to system admins
  • Dashboard view
  • UI needs to be improved and more polished
  • Blocks some legit mails sometimes
Avanan is well suited for Office 365 users and works great with Outlook Exchange. It effectively blocks any kind of phishing emails to protect from data leakage. It also offers data loss protection functionalities and works well as intended. However, the UI seems outdated and should be modernized. The UI lags sometimes.

Avanan Email security has been used as supplemental protection for internal network security. It is used throughout our region to protect all employee e-mails from external attacks by hackers, worms, viruses, trojans, ransomware and phishing. It has integrated great resources, performance and security to internal data. The integration and protection of the Office 365 environment is excellent and has mitigated 100% of attack attempts.
  • Integration with Office 365
  • Protection against phishing
  • Protection from ransomware attacks
  • Virus protection
  • Spam protection
  • Some crashes when overloaded
Prior to Avanan, we had information leaked through phishing attempts and viruses by some users. Now we have a strong problem against any external threat because emails are one of the main sources of these intruders. We really liked the interface with several options for management, integration, and analysis by reports. The software is stable and competitively priced.

Regarding business problems Avanan catches some advanced attacks that evade default and advanced security tools of our organizations.Avanan is very affordable. The product is super easy to use, it is very informative and reactive in terms of triage and trauma. In our organization scope is mostly for triage purpose and use it as a security tool.
  • Powerful feature such as rule based policy. Blacklist and whitelist feature is also too good
  • Better price-point then competitors and much much easier to work with.
  • Avanan catches most spam before end user see it
  • Sometimes, it's not easy to find why the email has been moved to spam or blocked
  • Tuning takes time, sometime query just don't work even everything is right.
  • UI can be made more user friendly, so that it will be easier to operate
Avanan is well suited while marking a email as spam or not it was almost always accurate but sometime it mark the genuine content as spam which is frustrating but from a security perspective tool is really accurate.Price is low so it helps organization really well in cost cutting compared to compete tiers but UI can be improved a bit which will really add value to product

Ease of use - [Avanan] protects the enterprise very well by flagging all email that seems like a scam/virus. Price is excellent - Way better than the competitors which are not even near Avanan -Sometimes, it's not easy to find why the email has been blocked.
  • Protects against spam
  • Protects against viruses
  • Great protection against infected URLs
  • The login page has some bug that needs to be improved
  • Sometime it's not easy to find why a particular email has been blocked
  • Some legitimate emails are still blocked by Avanan, even after establishing rules
Avanan works really well against spam, viruses, etc. We receive over 100 emails every day that is spam/scam but our users are way more protected and feel more confident with Avanan. It has some diffuclties when legitimate emails come from domains that don't send a lot of emails. But it's okay, at least we are protected.
