You can install the plugins on the same machine hosting your exchange, and it's a good complement for other security solutions
Pros and Cons
  • "You can install the plugins on the same machine hosting your exchange solution. It's a good complement for Sophos security, which scans the traffic before it reaches your mail service. Kaspersky is on the mail server itself while Sophos handles the incoming traffic. With both of them working together, we have the perfect solution for mail."
  • "It would be great if Kaspersky could do what Sophos does for us. However, we love having these two different technologies doing the same thing. Sometimes Sophos has the patch to block a novel threat, but Kaspersky doesn't."

What is our primary use case?

We generally use Sophos for our mail servers, but we added Kaspersky for a second layer of protection. You can install the plugins on the same machine hosting your exchange solution. It's a good complement for Sophos security, which scans the traffic before it reaches your mail service. Kaspersky is on the mail server itself while Sophos handles the incoming traffic. With both of them working together, we have the perfect solution for mail. 

We deploy Kaspersky on-premises because many government institutions in Mozambique don't want to use anything related to the cloud. That's why most of our solutions are on-prem, because our government customers are worried about their sensitive information.

What needs improvement?

It would be great if Kaspersky could do what Sophos does for us. However, we love having these two different technologies doing the same thing. Sometimes Sophos has the patch to block a novel threat, but Kaspersky doesn't. There are also times when Kaspersky is the first to have the patches. We are happy with the product so far. I don't see any improvement that I would advise.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using Kaspersky Security for Mail for three years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Security for Mail Server is a robust and stable solution. Once you deploy it, you don't have to do much.

619,967 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have three big client companies using Security for Mail Server with 2,500, 1,500, and 6,000 users, respectively. Many companies in Mozambique use their own on-premise mail servers, so it's an easy sell.

How are customer service and support?

Kaspersky support is good. 

How was the initial setup?

The Kaspersky installation is a medium-level difficulty. You have to understand how the mail server is configured then apply the package on top. It takes a day to fully deploy the solution, and we could handle the deployment ourselves with two technicians. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Security for Mail Server is an annual subscription. You pay for one license, and you have full access to all features.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Kaspersky for Mail Server eight out of 10. It's a good complement to our mail security. I recommend it.

Price-wise, I would rate this product a four out of five. It could be a bit cheaper.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have come to know about Proofpoint Email Protection and the features that they provide. For example, they are pretty good in terms of email monitoring, especially because their product performs a deep inspection of both incoming and outgoing emails. In this regard, they are very good when compared to Kaspersky.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
