Stops evolving threats and offers peace of mind
We use the solution for wireless scanning, reporting, and monitoring.  The product is not resource-intensive.  The tool's most valuable feature is virus scanning, which has saved us from malware and ransomware.  We need to be able to whitelist data at the backend.  I have been using the product…

Robust email security with advanced threat detection and prevention, but comes with a higher cost
We use it primarily for filtering both internal and external messages, especially within our Office 365 environment. It serves as our main filtering solution The most significant enhancement we've gained is in terms of security through the upgrade we received. The pricing needs to be…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"Defender for Office 365 has helped eliminate having to look at multiple dashboards and that is the aspect I like most about it. It is simpler, effective, and convenient. The users like the process efficiency."
"The two main features that prove most beneficial for us are URL scanning and attachment scanning."
"The deployment capability is a great feature."
"The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient."
"At the moment we are satisfied with this product. It's a stable, scalable, and resilient solution for us."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is the ease of use."
"Defender helps us prioritize threats across our organization."
"It gives us visibility into threats and, for endpoints, it helps us to prioritize threats. We used to have a lack of visibility, but now our time to detect and respond has decreased."
"Cisco Secure Email's most valuable is email certification."
"Cisco Secure Email has strong inbound services."
"The most valuable feature is the different content filters we are using, such as DKIM."
"It is doing its work. It is doing what it was actually designed to do. It has ensured we don't have business email compromises, and it has also ensured that our brand Galaxy is unique all year round."
"There is a huge return compared to if we didn't have a gateway appliance, as far as blocking malicious emails."
"I can customize the configuration and policies."
"ATP has been the most valuable in improving our email security posture."
"The tech engineers are very knowledgeable."
"The hot folder feature is the most valuable feature of Seclore for safeguarding communications. For example, if an unauthorized user gets access to a file, you can remove their access even if they've forwarded it to someone else."


"About eight months ago, we started to measure the quantity of phishing and spam that we have been receiving, and it has been increasing a lot. That means that protection for our email is not as good as we were expecting."
"There is room for improvement in terms of reporting."
"Microsoft Defender for Office 365 should improve the troubleshooting tools. It's unclear whether the device is blocked at the firewall level or at the device itself. The granularity needed for troubleshooting is currently lacking. From my perspective, Microsoft should address this issue to benefit many users who likely share the same sentiment."
"We noticed that from time to time, Microsoft's stability does have problems. Sometimes the service goes up and down. Sometimes they change without prior notice."
"Microsoft Defender for Office 365 could improve by giving customers information on techniques to prevent threats. For example, information about best practices on how to protect their own devices against hackers and scammers, such as educational information or training. This would help others have a better understanding of cyber security. Additionally, there can be more security features added."
"We need to be able to whitelist data at the backend."
"One area for improvement is support, in terms of being able to reach them and, especially, technical support for configuration."
"The phishing and spam filters could use some improvement."
"I would like them to add some clustering or high availability features."
"The solution does not have a strong outbound service. It should also integrate DLP."
"I am not satisfied with the solution's reporting and logging."
"Cisco Email Secure's pricing needs to be less. We have vendors who provide cheaper solutions with the same features."
"The reporting functionality needs to be improved."
"The solution needs to improve its advanced phishing filters. It is very good at filtering things which have bad reputations. However, when phishing or malicious emails are new or coming from a legitimate source, we don't feel that the solution is working."
"If you are not a technical guy, it is hard to maneuver, but as soon as you work on it, it gets better and better. If there was a better way to know how to do things or how to find things, it would be good."
"They can do it better with web links, with the URLs. They have a technology called Outbreak but it doesn't work as well as we would like."
"In future releases, I would like to see new features or more connectors for specific applications."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I know that the product is incredibly expensive."
"The product is expensive."
"Compared to other brands, Microsoft Defender for Office 365's pricing is competitive."
"Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is an add-on to the Office license. Many customers are purchasing this solution."
"The pricing is normal. Considering its popularity, it's not overpriced."
"The solution saves money so we have seen a return on investment."
"Defender for 365 comes in various plans and licenses, along with other Microsoft security solutions. Purchasing this kind of package or security bundle gives good value for money, and that's what I recommend."
"From the pricing point of view, like any other product in the market, there is scope for negotiation."
"In addition to the standard licensing, there is a cost for SMARTnet as well."
"The licensing was all transferred."
"The product's price falls on the higher side when compared to the other products on the market."
"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."
"The license was not per user, the license model was per feature. You could choose anti-virus, anti-spam, etc. It was feature-based and charged yearly."
"We were using Proofpoint and then we switched to Cisco... reportability was one of the main reasons we switched, but the biggest one was cost. If you can get an equivalent functionality for a better price it's wise to do so. That's what our primary decision came down to: We could get equivalent functionality at a lower price point."
"It is not that costly. We pay for the solution through a contractor and pay an annual fee."
