"Powerful Anti-Phishing"

What did you like best when using this solution?

Ironscales has been great at stopping phishing emails and removing them from users inboxes.

What did you dislike about using this solution?

The banners work well to warn users of suspect emails and Ironscales allows end users to report emails as phishing emails. However, on mobile, users need to be using the Outlook app - they can't report phishing emails directly from the default mail app on iPhones.

Describe your over overall experience with IRONSCALES. Did you find this product solved your business needs?

We use Proofpoint to provide email security. It does a fine job stopping spam emails but it struggles to detect phishing emails that direct users to fake login pages. To stop phishing emails, we tested Microsoft ATP Plan 1. This didn't stop phishing emails so we decided to look at alternatives including Greathorn and Ironscales.

The initial deployment of the Ironscales service was straight forward. It involved a couple of click to sync our users on o365 and the service was deployed via an API.

Once up and running, Ironscales managed to capture the majority of phishing attacks. For the attacks that reached the users inboxes, Ironscales has this neat feature of inserting a banner in the email to warn the end user that the email is suspicious. End users are then able to report the emails using an alert button in Outlook. Our admin team are then able to review these emails and remove them from users inboxes where required.

Overall we have been impressed with the Ironscales service. Its not a replacement for Proofpoint but instead provides another layer of security on top of it.

"Highly effective phishing protection"

What did you like best when using this solution?

Ease of implementation - the service operates via an API connection in o365. No changes were required to our MX records, SPF, DKIM or DMARC records. No firewall changes were required. It took less than an hour to implement the service.

Visibility to potentially suspect emails. If a phishing email gets past the filters, the email can be remotely removed from end users mailboxes.

End users like the red banners that alert them to potentially suspect emails.

What did you dislike about using this solution?

We are on Office 365 so the service was extremely easy to implement. However, it could be more complicated for on-premise Exchange users as connectors would then need to be setup in Exchange.

Describe your over overall experience with IRONSCALES. Did you find this product solved your business needs?

We have 450 users on 0365 and were using Symantec to provide email security. We were having an issue with phishing emails bypassing Symantec and reaching end users. We had implemented security awareness training with KnowBe4 but were finding that this wasn't stopping phishing attacks.

We were recommended Ironscales by our security consultant. Since implementing it, the number of phishing attacks reaching end users has dropped to virtually nil. When a phishing email does bypass the filter, Ironscales has a neat feature whereby end users can report the email and at an admin level, we can have visibility of which users have received the email. We are able to remove the phishing email from end users mailboxes from the Ironscales admin console. Overall Ironscales has been a solid investment.
