The end-users love not having their inboxes fill up with extra useless emails. As an administrator, it is simple to implement and maintain. The ability to put something into test mode before going live makes our life a lot easier and less stressful. Avanan has many different components to make your life easier.

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.

The dashboard is extremely useful, it's easier to read and helps identify any issues. Avanan is one of the best products i have used, in terms of showing us exactly what we need to see. Since the previous look, there have been a lot of improvements. IT WORKS!!!!!

My team was the team that was finding the solution, implementing the solution, and managing the solution. At no [point did] we have any problems with the service and its usability. Unlike some products in the past that had the same solutions, there was no downtime or any kind of limit on us to [meet] our needs.

Usability is so easy. It was a quick configuration with entering in some credentials, accepting terms and permissions and before you know it it's already going through and taking a look at existing emails. Portal is very easy to use and there are always updates with decent logs. The new UI is great and highly intuitive.

Avanan allows as much or as little customization as needed while still providing excellent protection against common spam and phishing attacks. It has an excellent user experience from both an end-user and an administrator perspective, which is one of the primary issues when implementing new tools and software into an environment - Avanan was intuitive and required minimal training to actually use the software for our users.

I give Avanan this rating because in actuality it is very easy and effective when using [it]. The dashboard tools and monitoring are clean, organized, and streamlined to navigate. Handling new events or setting up custom tools is also easy and requires no specialty training. Accessing the information or action within Avanan is highly functional.

Avanan is a great tool for email filtering.

As mentioned before, this tool is really easy to use and implement.

The user implementation was really easy too. Users at this point recognize the tool and what it does and know how to request email release or evaluation, and for us the managers, helps us a lot in preventing malicious emails to arrive in users mailboxes.

Avanan has an intuitive portal that allows for configuration and management. This portal receives improvements regularly but most importantly receives feedback from its clients. Being able to as for a change in the portal to be made and receiving it in a timely manner is exceptional as well as remarkable due to the small time it takes to make said changes.

As previously stated, the user interface could use some work. Overall, I find it satisfactory, but there is definitely room for improvement. The learning curve is a bit steep, but over time it becomes less of an issue.

Avanan has made its dashboard very easy to navigate in the reality of things. It is a system that is not overly complicated. It was very easy to integrate. I can find what I need from the systems relatively quickly and if I don't know how to get something all I have to do is ask Avanan support and they always give me a good answer.

I give it a 10, because at the time of implementing the product, the support gave us all the support from scratch to the end and during this process they satisfactorily answered all the questions. Once the product is implemented, it is to facilitate the search for alerts, generate reports, identify alerts, the handling of the quarantine is very good and the process of adding in the whitelist just as good.
