Avanan is being used as an advance anti-phish mechanism. It is currently doing inline protection on all mailboxes in the organization. It's anti-phish scanning and learning is top notch. Also it empowers an organization to quickly act if a phishing email makes it through. Its learning component is also very well done so that the same items don't get caught again.

Really any size organization would benefit from implementing Avanan's anti-phish product. Avanan also offers a host of other solutions that are worthy of review and consideration. Avanan support is quick and highly responsive. This was surprising to us even in year 3 where Avanan is becoming more of a household name. Speaks to the quality of the company.

Avanan's support has been top notch since day 1 and hasn't changed. This might be the greatest representation of the quality Avanan brings to the table. Even after they are now a household name they still treat their original customers in high regard with a personal touch. It is clear Avanan is committed to customer retention.
Premium support was not offered the general support feels as good or better than other company's premium support.
Yes
Yes it was
Every time we submit a ticket it is generally an exceptional response
Avanan's usability both at a user level and an admin level are 10/10. For a user the notification emails are intuitive and easy to follow. For an admin the dashboard is very helpful and the interface gets easier to navigate with every new release. Previous products we had did not do this well.

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.

  • Email is kept more secure.
  • Provides [users] with [the] ability to request an email to be delivered if needed out of quarantine.
  • The amount of time administrators spend working on email security issues has been cut in half from what they were with our previous vendor.
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.
From start to finish this product only takes a few minutes to get up and running. After the initial setup, you can log into the portal to complete the customization for your organization. Working with Avanan on the process is quick but things can and do get [forgotten] about and or left off and a revisit tends to happen to finish the job.

We've just started using the product and have another 7 months to go under contract. At this point I'd renew, Avanan continues to improve the product as well as their support.

We were using Barracuda email security gateway. Needless to say it was allowing an alarming number of emails phishing our employee's to the point we had many accounts being taken over. The ESS and Sentinel products were terrible and way under performed as to what they were supposed to be capable of doing. We made the move away from Barracuda with a year left on our contract after Barracuda refused to address our issues.

Our displeasure with our current email security gateway platform pushed us into finding a new solution vs waiting out our contract.
I wouldn't have changed a thing.

After sales no matter the issue Avanan has been easy to work with.
Only a one year contract to try them out being the new vendor on the block.
Document exactly what you're trying to accomplish with a product and what are you trying to protect your companies from then choose several vendors, preferably the top three or four vendors and demo each of those before making a decision.
