SIEVE flexibility!

Pros

On the surface all the stuff you would expect is here, all the typical mail filtering technology just works. But the real power is when you start writing your own SIEVE rules to do things never intended by the developers. Want to only greylist conditionally? Great! Want to return customized SMTP rejection messages for certain conditions? You can! Want to do simple content filtering without learning SIEVE? The UI has all the basics covered too. The deep integration with MDaemon is a perk for me, but it works with Exchange and other platforms just as well, even including SMTP call-forwards.

Cons

There is a learning curve, and although all the configuration is browser-based it isn’t especially mobile friendly.

Best antivirus/antispam solution out there for on-premises

Overall the product has met and exceeded my expectations. It is a formidable spam filter and keeps viruses out. Once the fine tuning was done it has "just worked" which is all you can ask for.

Pros

We moved from Exchange Online Protection to Security Gateway after trialing several alternatives (both on-prem and cloud based). Security Gateway was the perfect sweet spot. Spam capabilities are far superior to EOP. Installation was straightforward and setup and configuration were also easy. For the price you get all the expected features and a lot of extra goodies too. The logging is top notch, very easy to see what happened to an e-mail and why.

Cons

I wish the Bayesian filter had a way to incorporate updates from either MDaemon or a third party for downloading known good HAM/SPAM. You can train I prefer the way GFI MailEssentials does Bayesian training and updates, much more useful. I wish it had an Outlook plugin that would allow uses to automatically whitelist/blacklist an email from right in Outlook like Mail Essentials has. I also wish there were an option for additional antivirus engines to be purchased.

Reasons for Choosing Security Gateway by MDaemon

Price was excellent, complete feature set, product ran well during trial.

Reasons for Switching to Security Gateway by MDaemon

Dissatisfaction with the spam detection rate was the primary factor.

The Best Place to Go for Secure Hosted Email

I am trying to keep my inbox free of spam and viruses. Security Gateway makes this happen.

Pros

It is very easy to use. The spam filter is very accurate with a clean user interface on one screen. The tech support department is very knowledgeable, helpful and the monthly cost is below 90% of the competition.

Cons

Nothing at all. The product and support is excellent!

Reasons for Choosing Security Gateway by MDaemon

A better product all around in my opinion and a lower monthly cost.

Reasons for Switching to Security Gateway by MDaemon

Far too many problems with Mail Assure and terrible tech support.

Good Antispam Software

It is a very easy system to use, easy to implement, and it helps a lot because it has several languages for which I am grateful that my native language is Spanish.

Pros

We implemented our own Exchange server, and we had the need to have an antispam that would help us to be free to monitor it and that the same user with a single click could release his email, and this software was what we needed

Cons

maybe the interface (its appearance) and the time to send reports to the user, because they have to wait every hour to see their blocked email

Reasons for Choosing Security Gateway by MDaemon

does not require a device, how practical is the implementation. the cost. and having multiple languages to be used.

Reasons for Switching to Security Gateway by MDaemon

complicated to use, not only for me but for my colleagues who were starting, the high costs generated by the barracuda system, the device, the software, licenses, outages, and high costs for upgrades.

Set and Forget

With Security Gateway in place I get a little better sleep at night knowing my Exchange Server and entire network is better protected from the nasty stuff out there. In recent months since the COVID pandemic started, spam and scams have spread faster than Coronavirus. As far as the MDaemon team behind the product, I can't say enough good about them. Support if every needed is TOP NOTCH, and just recently our license was due for renewal, we mailed our renewal payment in a week or two before the due date, but because of the delays in mail delivery it was stuck in the postal system for nearly 4 weeks. MDaemon without us even asking immediately issued us a 30 day temporary license key. The payment arrived a few days after that and they emailed me to let us know. Thank you MDaemon for the personal attention given to your customers, you make us feel like family !!

Pros

Out of the box, it's probably one of the easiest pieces of software to implement. Recently I moved our installation to a new server, what can be a nightmare with other software packages was a no brainier. I simply installed a new copy of the software on a new server, ran the Security Gateway system backup, imported it to the new installation, and BOOM just like that I was in business again. Over the years I've tweaked this or that setting to make an already great piece of work exceptional.

Cons

Not any cons worth mention. Would like to see an Outlook add-on button that would allow me to add any messages that make it thru (which isn't much) right to the blacklist or to spam learning.

Reasons for Choosing Security Gateway by MDaemon

Features number one, pricing number two. Security Gateway beats the competition on both.

Reasons for Switching to Security Gateway by MDaemon

GFI was very costly, but more importantly was extremely complicated to setup and maintain.
