We have evaluated and used Echoworx as well. Both DataMotion SecureMail and Echoworx are great services. Based on the merits of DataMotion SecureMail in terms of threat protection, retention period, and ease of setup, we had to go forward with DataMotion SecureMail. I would say DataMotion SecureMail is definitely a good choice due to ease of use, and lot of our employees are comfortable using it.
We have great internal IT support and external vendor support for DataMotion SecureMail. Of the few instances where we had to setup client add-on, the setup was fast, easy, and convenient. Usage is straightforward. Once we get the hang of sensitivity surrounding information, it is easy to protect with DataMotion SecureMail.

  • Due to DataMotion SecureMail's ability to easily integrate with email clients and single-sign-on capabilities, we are able to scale and retain our end-users.
  • Our compliance burden has been severely reduced on the email front.
We had to use the public cloud option due to ease of maintenance and our compliance needs were fully met. For organizations willing to implement this service, I wold recommend weighing all the options and choosing the one that is economic and meets your internal and external compliance requirements.
We have evaluated needs such as using APIs for dashboarding, KPIs, and reporting purposes. However, we deferred the use case, as DataMotion SecureMail itself has great in built-in capabilities to address our needs.
Well suited for
