Based on my experience with various players in the Email Security area, I discovered Cisco Email Security solutions lead from the front. Had many opportunities to migrate from some of the Non Cisco Email security solutions to Cisco Email Security solutions and did saw the huge improvement especially in the area of anti-spam emails. Cisco Email Security out stands among its competitors, however this doesn’t remains the same in Web Security area.

Opus one tested all those solution providers based on the following criteria to declare Cisco a leader in Anti Spam efficiency

  • Approximately 10,000 messages were selected at random for testing each month, with a total of 130,227 messages in the final evaluation set
  • Messages were drawn from actual corporate production mail streams
  • Messages were received live and tested with less than a one-second delay
  • Tested products were acquired directly from the vendor or through normal distribution channels and were under active support contracts. Cloud-based solutions were only used when an appliance-based solution was not available. Tested products were “up to date” with current released software and signature updates and all settings were reviewed by each vendor’s own technical support team
  • Messages were hand classified as “spam” and “not spam” to ensure data validity
  • Each of the tested products included the vendor-recommended or integrated reputation service in the results
