Employ the Industry’s Most Comprehensive Email Security Threat Classification & Management Solution

Classify your enterprise emails based on the level of email security threat to your organization and manage them accordingly.

Backed by the patented MLX Threat Classification Engine that’s focused on supporting your mission-critical business communications, we classify enterprise emails as either valid email, nuisance spam, or malicious, low-volume phishing attacks. Our email security threat protection solution uses real-time email message-tracing to provide the necessary security tools to triage any security threats.

Be Protected from Targeted Attacks

Secure top-of-the-line protection from targeted attacks—which are three times more likely to target financial services than other enterprises.

Attackers have refined the tactics of phishing by incorporating the business world’s practice of using customized marketing to reach a targeted audience. And email is still the biggest vector for malware, since it has a record of success based on targeting individuals.

Deliberately stealthy, targeted messages are sent from IP addresses with good reputations, and sometimes use co-worker and manager names, and reference LinkedIn connections and Facebook updates. The result is the emails seem normal to the end user. But they’re unique to most email security systems, which fail to identify a pattern or recognize that there’s a targeted attack on the horizon.

To protect your company from these dangerous targeted attacks, Proofpoint leads the way with a sophisticated solution—which takes phishing detection to the next level by offering a very complex form of tracking that enables your organization to spot and prevent an attack automatically before it happens.

Get full support for cloud-based email and social media systems (e.g., MS Office 365)

Proofpoint is available as a cloud-based data security solution and provides all the same rich functionality available as an on-premise solution. Our solution also seamlessly integrates to any cloud-based email solution, such as Microsoft's Office 365, ensuring regulatory compliance while taking advantage of the cost benefits of the cloud.


Ensure regulatory compliance and privacy

Download ‘Data Breaches’ Report

Compliance regulations are becoming stricter and covering more organizations than ever before. In the United States, not only are pharmaceutical organizations subject to compliance regulations and restrictions, but also so are their business partners, such as auditing and account firms.

Proofpoint in-place and outbound Data Loss Prevention and Encryption helps organizations with compliance requirements by accurately identifying emails containing sensitive information, and blocking or encrypting the messages before they leave the organization. Proofpoint also protects that information from viruses and malware, providing the industry’s best threat protection against modern-day, malicious threats.

Proofpoint Encryption is easy-to-use email encryption, backed by a strong policy engine that ensures all sensitive data is protected before it leaves your organization. All encrypted messages follow your organization’s compliance requirements.

Recipients of Proofpoint encrypted emails follow extremely simple steps to authenticate and access their messages. No pre-registration or exchange of encryption keys is required to use Proofpoint Encryption; ad-hoc email encryption is fully supported.

Employ flexible remediation

Allow sender-based remediation and help prevent regulatory compliance issues that result inadvertent data loss—the origin of the vast majority of compliance issues

Allow sender-based remediation and help prevent regulatory compliance issues that result inadvertent data loss—the origin of the vast majority of compliance issues.

Proofpoint Smart Send is a feature that gives select administrators the ability to perform sender-based remediation. Smart Send can temporarily stop this message, send a notification back to the sender alerting them of the content within the message, but then also provide direct remediation options within the notification: the ability to block that communication permanently, the ability to release that communication, or to encrypt that message before sending (if email).

Smart Send can be enabled for the entire organization or for specific groups.
