"Effective protection for Office 365 and One Drive"
What did you like best when using this solution?
Avanan is so much more than an email security solution. We have deployed Avanan onto Office 365 and use it to protect our email and OneDrive accounts.
The service is took less than 20-minutes to install via Azure Active Directory on Office 365 and doesnt require our MX records being changed.
We use the service to filter all users email for viruses, phishing and spam emails. Also Avanan scans our OneDrive accounts for viruses.
As administrator, I have visibility of an emails or files that it finds suspicious. These are categorized as spam, phishing, suspicious, DLP, anomaly or alert. The service is highly configurable on a per user or group basis. For example, we have configured the service to;
Malicious: Quarantine. User is alerted and allowed to restore the email
Anti-Phishing: User receives the email with a warning
Suspicious: User receives the email with a warning
Spam: Add [Spam] to subject
Another cool point with Avanan is that you can choose which AV engines that you use. We have the choice of Sophos Antivirus, Check Point Sandblast, Check Point Antivirus, Lastline Sandbox & Smart-Phish.
What did you dislike about using this solution?
Price & Billing. The service can get costly for as you add on the different modules. Billing is annual in advance. We would prefer monthly based on active users as our user numbers fluctuate.
Describe your over overall experience with Avanan CASB. Did you find this product solved your business needs?
We have been impressed with Avanan. It does this differently to traditional email security vendors. If I had one request to Avanan, it would be to bring the review of quarantined email into the management interface rather than having to trawl through a separate mailbox to find quarantined mails.
