SC Magazine's Test Lab noted that "the installation was easy and straightforward. The directions were simple and the device was up and running in no time at all." The reviewer referred to the web-based interface as "slick" and very easy to navigate.

The reviewer concluded that "administrators securing the enterprise environment will appreciate a wide range of options and the appliance's single interface helps to easily view and manage multiple devices". Overall, the ES1000 Email Appliance was said to be "good value given the features and the price".
