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.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)
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.
