Overall Satisfaction with Avanan

We are an IT managed services provider, who use Avanan across our organization and deploy it for many of our customers.
Avanan provides additional protection against phishing attacks and malware, beyond that provided by a standard email filtering\anti-spam solution. It also provides malware protection for many SaaS services such as GSuite, SharePoint Online\OneDrive and Microsoft Teams.
  • Threat detection - picks up many threats which are missed by email filtering
  • Simple to deploy, immediately starts providing protection
  • Product development teams are frequently adding new functionality
  • Multi-tenanted management - for an IT Managed Service provider, there are some settings such as email templates that we would like to change for all of our clients at once, rather than modifying per client.
  • Better security protection for our clients SaaS products
  • Helps to establish us as being at the forefront of cyber security solutions
The support team have always been quick to respond and helpful, whenever we have reached out to them. They have also taken on feedback for product improvements and have generally implemented these fairly quickly, which is fantastic to see. I really can't fault the support we have received from the team at Avanan.

Avanan is really quick and easy to deploy and can be providing protection for your SaaS products very quickly. The management interface is intuitive and it's one of the best products I've used in terms of allowing you to see why something has been rated as a threat. It shows how the email or attachment has been rated against the various methods and scanning engines used for threat detection.
Log search is also quite simple to use and powerful.
Avanan fits really well for anyone using Office 365 or Google GSuite who is concerned with cyber security. It detects threats which bypass the inbuilt protections in Office 365, and threats which are not detected by standard email filtering solutions. It includes features such as suspicious account logins from multiple geographic locations within a short space of time.

It is possible to provide email protection in a Hybrid Exchange environment, but some functionality is lost in this scenario, so may not be the best choice for anyone still using on-premise Exchange servers.
