AppRiver offers an email security solution with strong threat protection from impersonation attacks and daily reports and analytics. The service checks all names and email addresses to attempt to spot phishing attempts before they enter the email gateway. Spam filtering is robust, and all emails suspected of being a threat are placed into a fully featured and easy to manage quarantine. Daily reports and analytics are provided which can be useful to track threats and gain deeper visibility into email security. AppRiver also offers outbound email filtering. The service is very easy to deploy and administer which means it’s well suited to MSPs and small and medium sized businesses.
SecureTide doesn’t offer the most advanced or granular email security solution. However, it does offer a good layer of threat protection which is easy to manage. It offers organisations deeper insight into their email security and an easy to use service. Since the acquisition of AppRiver by Zix, customers have raised the issue of service outages.
