Email Gateway Reccomnedations

Looking for some recommendations on Email Gateways.  Hoping to catch the attention and get ideas from Exchange Admins, Cyber Security Professionals, folks who work the security field, email is a big open doorway for attacks that I want to shut.

It must be able to do the following:

Spool email (save emails in a cache state while servers are down unexpectedly),
Email Continuity (allow users to view email during extended mail server downtime)
Incredible spam, virus, etc.  filtering.


Users - 300 - 500
Exchange 2013 environment , on-site premise

The following gateways have been considered already, looking for additional choices.

Edgewave and Proofpoint

Thank you!

I had a very good experience with Cisco Ironport (ESA).  It spools emails when your Exchange is not reachable but the end users can't login and check their emails. They would have to wait for Exchange to come back up.

It has virus, spam filtering. You can setup enforced encryption on emails for certain domains. If you need, you can configure DLP.

Thank you very much Adam and Sim50. I really appreciate the responses. Im going to let the question linger to see if anyone else has input but your answers have provided quite a bit of insight.

I think the cloud based solution will be the way to go and Barracuda's Cloud service has been added to the list.

I didn't specify above but I believe we want to go the Cloud route as opposed to physical hardware and email continuity is mandatory (per my supervisor.) We are also already running a encryption server for secure emails so hopefully I can skip that option and save some $$$ per box.

Thanks again!!

Thanks again!

I have used in many environments, McAfee's (Intel) Email Protection and Continuity SaaS product. It is a cloud based product that has reduced the amount of spam and email based threats down to nothing. They have a host of offerings ranging from email protection and continuity to archiving to secured email, etc. If my Internet connection or server goes down, the system automatically spools messages until it can communicate with the email server again. You have the option of allowing users to login to the portal to receive, respond to emails while spooling. McAfee (Intel) purchased MxLogix to add to their security product offerings.

Hope this helps.
