New York—September 24, 2019 – Avanan, a leading cloud email security platform, has been named a September 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Email Security.
Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice Distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service
For Gartner, “Email Security refers collectively to the prediction, prevention, detection, and response framework used to provide access and attack protection for email. mail security spans gateways, email systems, user behavior, and various supporting processes, services, and adjacent security architecture.”
Key capabilities of the Email Security market include:
- Malware Sandbox
- Content Disarm and Reconstruction
- URL Rewriting
- Time-of-Click Analysis
- Web Isolation Services
- Display Name Spoof Detection
- Domain-Based Message Authentication
- Reporting and Conformance on Inbound Email
- Lookalike Domain Detection
- Anomaly Detection
The growing problem of phishing and impersonation can be reduced through education, user behavior mapping, content filtering, impersonation detection, improved indicators of identity in email, and time-saving workflows for suspicious messages — along with email security solutions.
Some quotes from the surveys include:
- “One of the main drawbacks of security is inconvenience; as IT professionals, we know you cannot have both. But Avanan is breaking that barrier.”
- “If we could do it again, I wish we would have found Avanan sooner. It would have taken a lot of anxiety and sleepless nights out of the equation due to phishing campaigns.”
- “One key aspect of the product is the ability to integrate with our current cloud providers without intrusive routing or changes in our current infrastructure. The ability to tie directly into the provider's API is key to the functionality of the product.
- “Avanan also allows easy integration of leading-edge technologies from all the major vendors and allows a try before you buy configuration where you can prove the additional solutions actually work.”
“As a newer and smaller contender in the email security market, to receive both the highest number of reviews and the highest average score was far beyond what we would have expected,” said Gil Friedrich, founder and chief executive of Avanan. “Big thank you to all of our customers from all of us,” he added.
As was announced in an Avanan press release at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit this past summer, we were also recognized by Gartner experts in the June 2019 Gartner “Market Guide for Email Security,” Avanan was included as a representative vendor in the cloud security market Gartner refers to as “Cloud Email Security Supplements.” According to the report, “Cloud email security supplements (CESSs) focus on specific threats, often in the realm of hard-to-detect phishing, and can leverage full access to cloud-hosted inboxes via APIs for detection and remediation. Most of these products focus on phishing, but some go well beyond to include sandboxing and URL rewriting/time-of click analysis, thereby directly competing with SEGs.”
