Symantec customers are thinking about switching from Symantec Email Security.cloud (formerly MessageLabs) or Symantec Messaging Gateway (formerly BrightMail). Why? Uncertainty that their current Email Security.cloud or Messaging Gateway solution will continue to receive the necessary R&D and support investments required to stay ahead of the No. 1 threat vector. In today's ever-changing threat landscape, you need an email security partner that is invested in protecting against these cyber threats. As part of the Broadcom acquisition of Symantec’s enterprise business, Broadcom did not highlight email security as an investment focus and announced plans to cut more than $1B across R&D and sales.

Keep pace with the threat landscape
Email threats are evolving more rapidly than ever.

It's clear that in this threat landscape, you need a proven email security solution that can keep pace with ever-changing email attacks.
