      Stopping spam and malicious emails, but requires continual training and user management. Wanted to use SPF, DKIM, and DMARC features but couldn't get help from support.

      The system works well with regular training and use of quarantine and daily digest for suspect emails.

      Lack of initial and ongoing training, difficult sales rep, and poor support after the person managing the system left.

      It's a reliable product that delivers on its promises.

      Great coverage against phishing, malware, impersonation, and business exploits

      The documentation for Google Workspace is notably deficient. This led to complications during our go-live phase due to conflicting information. Additionally, it took 45 minutes to connect with a resource through P1 support.
