Quite a useful tool for comparing against some soln in area of email security including anti-spam (aka 'false positives ' in email parlance).

But you probably also want to check out Gartner 2014 which Proofpoint and Cisco are one of the leading appliance soln, followed by McAfee and Symantec

Proofpoint - has DLP with built in policies, Quite a friendly Web based mgmt interface with customised dashboards, anti-span, spear phishing detection is pretty alright (include time of click URL protection), but price may be steep and unlikely form small outfit

Cisco - has granular MTA control, reputation scoring available for suspicious URL etc, has DLP capability and integrate with other DLP such as RSA but the spam detection depends a lot on reputation hence there can be tendency to only detect huge (snowshoe) spam type attack, may not support PGP and SMIME ext with its PostX end of sale
