Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing was all transferred."
  • "Compared to Cisco's on-prem service, the cost is the same, but you don't have to pay for the hardware and you don't have to maintain the system, as far as upgrades and hardware failures are concerned. It is cheaper to operate on their cloud service than it is to operate with their on-prem service."
  • "Cisco Secure Email and the support are priced well. It's not cheap, but there are other solutions that offer less and cost so much. For example, Microsoft is more expensive than Cisco."
  • "There are additional fees for adding features."
  • "At times, we feel the pricing is a bit too high, but then, there is also room for discounts. We enjoy a lot of discounts, and that is why we are still with them. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
  • "In my previous organization, avoiding four instances of CryptoLocker within an estimated six month period is approximately $600,000 in lost time and effort. Our five year cost was about a million dollars, and the four outages that we had equated to 65 percent of that five year cost."
  • "It is a super big router that costs a few hundred thousand dollars."

  • "The pricing depends on the number of users; per how many mailboxes you have, but they're pretty negotiable with that, too."

    Overview

    Customers of all sizes face the same daunting challenge: email is simultaneously the most important business communication tool and the leading attack vector for security breaches. Cisco Email Security enables users to communicate securely and helps organizations combat Business Email Compromise (BEC), ransomware, advanced malware, phishing, spam, and data loss with a multilayered approach to security.

    Agari Enterprise Protect focuses on stopping identity deception, which is part of every targeted email attack. Using a combination of trust analytics, data science and visibility of the Agari Email Trust Platform into 10 billion emails a day, we allow only email from your unique set of trusted businesses, partners and employees to be delivered. With Agari, you escape the reactive approach of “looking for the bad” to stop different types of email threats. Agari builds a unique model of what is good and trusted that attackers cannot evade.

    Valimail Defend, based on Valimail's IDEA platform, is the only automated, identity-based solution for reliable inbound impersonation protection. Unlike other solutions that generate lots of false alarms and expose your organization’s PII (Personally Identifiable Information), Valimail provides the strongest protection against lookalike-domain and friendly-from attacks without accessing the contents of email messages. Other security solutions increase risk and potential liability because they essentially take a copy of your email outside the organization to read the content and attempt to identify behavioral patterns, keywords, or other tipoffs that an email may be fake. Valimail Defend is the only identity-based solution that does not access PII.
