It also gives the vulnerability status according to the versions you have selected. Let's say you have Google Chrome. It mentions the versions it has, and it updates. Within two hours of an update, it is reflected in the dashboard. That's really nice to have.

I would say that 90% of the spam and phishing attack emails get blocked right off the bat.

Threat Explorer is one of the features that I very much like because it is a real-time report that allows you to identify, analyze, and trace security attacks.

The risk level notifications are most valuable. We get to know what kind of intrusion or attack is there, and we can fix a problem on time.

The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient.

The most valuable feature is the integration. It's a single console, so we don't have to switch around between multiple products. Another valuable feature is the ease of operations and maintenance.

The solution is very easy to use. All you have to do is to assign the license to the end-user and it's done. The customer will only have the feature activated, and the solution will monitor the emails to determine if they are a threat or not.

There needs to be an improvement in integrating the product to work across multiple operating systems, and to have better support for non-Microsoft file types.

In one of the reports I can get the exact place where a vulnerable file resides. But for that, I need to explicitly go into the device and check. If they could include that file part in the report, without my having to go to the device itself, that would help.

There is room for improvement with the UI.
The company should focus on adding threats that the solution is currently unable to detect.

Configuration requires going to a lot of places rather than just accessing one tab.

This product's effectiveness could be improved, in terms of detecting unwanted spam or even malware between the emails, compared to other products.

They can improve their security in a way where a customer can know if all their attachments are safe or not to open through a report. The solution does its job perfectly, but it never reports to the customer whether those attachments have been stopped before or not.
