Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) is a potent tool. When it comes to handling emails and links from blacklisted IP, Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) does a better job. However, considering the price to performance ratio, Mimecast is way ahead of Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA). Mimecast has an excellent spam filter, unlike the Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA). However, as said, Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) or Ironport has been chosen for our organization due to its tenacity and the power to handle a very high volume of email.

Considering we're with Cisco IronPort Web Security Appliances for the last 9 years, as I stated, we don't have too much experience with other producs. What I can say is that in the past, we evaluated Websense before it became Forcepoint and we also used MS ISA Server for webfilter. As you may imagine, IronPort is a very very superior product.

  • Symantec WebFilter (formerly Blue Coat)
We previously used BlueCoat ProxySG appliances. The system worked well overall, but the hardware, licensing, and support costs were just too high to continue using the product. The hardware costs, in particular, were unacceptable. It was relatively easy to convert our requirements to the Cisco IronPort Web Security Appliance and the cost savings easily justified the switch.

Websense has more resources devoted to categorizing the internet. The product is one of the best and most expensive. The Cisco WSA isn't as experienced, but is also significantly cheaper. Its an active product line getting investment and improvements. It is worth a look. Don't pay for features you don't need.

Cisco IronPort was the most flexible and easy to deploy. The use of a central manager even simplifies the process even further. Maintenance is seemeless and upgrades go well without having to install constant hotfixes.

We used several other products (evaluation and production) in the past and are testing some of them now. According to my experience I can say that Cisco IronPort Web Security Appliance has a lot of positive moments. It doesn't mean that other products worse or do not have such functionality but me and my team found some points that realised better in Cisco solution. Here are some of them:
- Easy deployment, configuration and customization;
- Never had any issues with stability and services availability;
- Single solution to create comprehensive web protection solution.
