My current provider is Barracuda, but their ESS datacenter is currently experiencing an outage.  Been down for 7 hours and counting with no ETA on a fix.  I'm ready to leave them (and jump off the top of a tall building).  Was thinking Messagelabs (now Symantec) as I have a good experience with them in the past.  This isn't a right or wrong question, but a request for opinions on which way to go. Symantec? Mimecast? Mcafee? anyone else? First priority is accurate protection, second is uptime.

Cheers

mimecast for security and uptime.

Trend hosted email for simplicity and money-saving.

But Mimecast is good :)

I am not involved in interfacing with them, but since we use exchange, we also use MS Forefront online protection for Exchange (FOPE).  They have been extremely effective, and on my end (user in this case), I have seen very little downtime.

I have decided to choose Messagelabs.  I used the very (non)scientific method of Googling terms like: "mimecast outage", "messagelabs outage", "omniquad outage" etc.

Anyway I think the most confidence inspiring is Messagelabs.  A silly thing to base a decision on I know.  Thanks for helping.
