Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Secure Email (formerly Cisco Email Security)

Cisco Email Security is being utilized across our whole organization. It's actually a second defense hop into our environment that provides another layer of defense to combat malware, spyware, etc. We also utilize it for outbound content filtering, routing rules, as well as email hygiene. It has proven to be very effective for our enterprise as the granularity was not possible on our email servers and cloud provider gateway.
  • Inbound and outbound content rules and filters.
  • Email routing rules.
  • Clustering capabilities.
  • Backup and restore functionality.
  • Training and certification.
  • Ability to see attachment names in reporting when exported to a file.
  • Small percent of malicious content is being allowed into the environment.
  • Fewer interruptions to the workplace.
  • Processing time is transparent to the email pipeline.
It provides us with another layer of defense and has proven to be a great asset and return on investment. Nothing is perfect but this is definitely something to evaluate if you are in the market looking to implement a new email gateway solution or upgrade from something that you already have in place.

Do you think Cisco Secure Email delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Cisco Secure Email's feature set?


Did Cisco Secure Email live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Cisco Secure Email go as expected?


Would you buy Cisco Secure Email again?


It is well suited for medium and large enterprises as a first and second line of defense. A small company may be better off going with a cloud version verses the on-prem version, whether it is physical or virtual. If a proof of concept (POC) can be implemented as a test, I would recommend doing that first before making any decisions.
