Email Security & Endpoint Protection

I am currently using Webroot for my end point protection, but I think it's time to switch to a better company.

I am switching to a Palo Alto Networks Firewall and I also need to find a good email security cloud provider.

So far, I've been looking at Trend Micro and Checkpoint, for both their Email security and endpoint products.  With Checkpoint, I just discovered that they have a product called Harmony Connect, which is pretty sweet, I've actually been looking for a similar product, so I wanted to get some opinions on what email security/endpoint protection would be the best I can go with at a reasonable cost?
I'm currently leaning to go with the Checkpoint Total product,  which incorporates all 3 plus a few extras.

I've looked at Barracuda for the email security, but I think it would be best to pick a provider that does both the endpoint protection and email security in one, as I would only have 1 management console for both and I don't have to login and manage two different systems.


Any suggestions?

I think it would be better to have Palo Alto Firewall and endpoint managed from a single console and provide unified activity and threat reporting. Look at Palo Alto Cortex XDR.

Then use something else for spam filtering.

Ok, got it, I will look into that, the PA cortex XDR, I think I did briefly look into it and found that it was very expensive.

How about darktrace, talking to sales, they claim they are the best in the industry.

Darktrace doesn't have an endpoint protect agent yet that I know of. Darktrace has great anomaly detection in general, and I would consider them for spam filtering. I would not consider them for endpoint protection.

I just talked to my director and we can't afford them.  I think I'm going to go with checkpoint, as we will also use their connect product.

I am looking into PA cortex XDR, so I will compare them as well.
I have negotiated prices up to 75% off list /initial quote for IT products and services. You never know how much a vendor is willing to come down until you try. First find the 2 products you want, and then let them earn your business.

got it. I'm struggling with trying to figure out if I want to have only one vendor provide both our email security and endpoint protection, or for example, go with PA cortex XDR for endpoint and some other vendor for email security, like check point or trendmicro, as PA does not offer any email security.
Or do I just go with checkpoint for both, that's my struggle right now.

Got it, so if I go with XDR for the endpoint, what would be the best email security company at a descent price?
