We are currently shopping around for a spam filter solution and narrowed it down to two solutions. Anyone have experience with both? Researched and saw good reviews for both but Ironport is much more expensive. Besides them being owned by cisco why the huge difference in price?

We have just started shopping around as well. We currently have Barracuda. At this point I'm far from planning to replace the units with Barracuda. They do have fairly good technical support and the interfaces and being an appliance are pluses.
Our units are fairly “over worked” due to our volume of mail but I’m not impressed with the filtering provided by their reputation databases. We have a lengthy list of block IP ranges which they are now blaming for quirks we are seeing with filtering and for the system running slow. I just removed this list this morning and so far we have gone from a mid 80% blocked to a mid 40%! I tried to explain to them that we had put these entries in because their database wasn’t cutting it but have never heard back on the case.
What other products have you looked at and why were they ruled out?
