"Great protection, great price, backed by an industry-leading solution"
What did you like best when using this solution?
Essentials uses the same best-in-class filters and features (attachment defense and TAP) as its Enterprise sibling, with an easier to use and friendlier UI (which is in beta as of May 2019). It's also quite granular on its settings and the new threat dashboard is a welcome addition. Super easy to deploy and get started.
What did you dislike about using this solution?
Some of the components have not been updated to the new version and have some weird quirks such as releasing multiple emails from quarantine, reclassifying multiple emails, automatic reports and report exporting.
While not work-stopping, they can be annoying. However, they are stated to be rebuilt in 2H 2019.
As another reviewer said, changes such as new users are applied at the top of the hour and are not instant.
Describe your over overall experience with Proofpoint Essentials. Did you find this product solved your business needs?
It is a great product for businesses that want the same level of protection as the Enterprise sibling at a much more affordable price-point without sacrificing a lot of features.
Looking forward to see how they incorporate their Cloudmark acquisition into their filters. I'm a big fan of Proofpoint and their mission and would highly recommend it if you're looking for a simple to use, but powerful solution.
