We have been using this Symantec Email Security.cloud solution for a years, and we have never thought of changing it. It has been delivering consistently perfect service and security to us.
When it comes to the email service- stability is a critical part, and we have rarely seen an issue caused by this service.
Also, the security part is excellent, as our 500+ users have not seen emails in their mailboxes for years.
So we are pleased with the solution and will stay as a happy customer in the future.
  • Filters spam and malware on the highest possible level
  • Provides stable service
  • If other customers get banned by some third party spam filter, you might be hit as you use shared servers/IPs.
  • User support not always get your point from the first time.
If you don't want to have any spam or malware in your mailbox, Symantec Email Security.cloud is the solution to choose. Also, if you need to have some security features, like DLP, it has them embedded!
We have also been using reporting a lot to see how many emails have been sent, where they delivered, and so on.

  • It has secured our email channel for a years.
  • The costs are affordable.
In very tricky cases, it takes time to explain it to the support personnel as they don't get your problem from the first couple of emails.

We use Symantec Email Security.cloud as our inbound spam filter. We use several other features of the program to keep messages flowing into the company.
  • We greatly reduced the amount of spam that made it through to our users email boxes.
  • The information provided in the track and trace functions has been instrumental in troubleshooting email flow issues.
  • Cloud management of the product allows easy administration from any location.
  • Outbound encryption could be improved to allow for advanced connections to other organizations' PKI keyservers.
  • The user interface could be a little more friendly, finding advanced features sometimes takes a little more time with hunting and clicking to get to the correct page.
The product was easy to implement and provides value for the available features.

  • Our previous solution was very manual. The ROI has been in less manual intervention from the admins and freeing up their already busy schedules.

Symantec Email Security.cloud is a service that provides Antispam as well as other security services including malware and AntiVirus scanning for bad attachments and links, spearphishing control, and sandbox testing of attachments. All of these security features prevent malicious or dangerous emails from ever entering your company's four walls.
  • Advanced scanning of email and threats beyond simple Antispam services
  • Sandbox testing of attachments prior to delivery of email to test against malicious threats such as Ransomware
  • Spearphishing prevention to avoid impersonation attacks and potential wire transfer requests
  • Searching within the console can be slow at times, especially when making small tweaks and refreshing quickly
  • Features seem to have slowed down since Symantec acquired this formerly "MessageLabs" product
  • Advanced filtering and scanning is not quite as good as several competitors
This product is ideal for any company as it's a cloud-based service and very scalable. It provides many security services and there is no hardware necessary. The service can also be month-to-month and is easy to implement.
  • Advanced scanning can prevent bad email from getting through and infecting or encrypting company data. This can drastically impact a business on a day-to-day basis.
  • Affordable cost for the service means that all email should be filtered by a business-grade solution.
  • Customization of policies lets a company tailor fit the solution to their needs for security and compliance.
Barracuda's ESS is the premier product, it boasts outbound email encryption as an included service as well as all of the security features of Symantec Email Security.cloud. Sophos is on the same level as SES.c but is not quite as feature rich.
