Proofpoint | Stop evolving Email attacks
proofpoint logo

Email is the #1 vector for advanced threats that target your organization, more than 90% of targeted attacks start through email. Attackers are evolving their techniques to target your people rather than your infrastructure, and email defense tools are struggling to keep up, leaving your data, brand reputation, and bottom line at risk.

Most vendors help with some aspects of email security or block some attacks, but given the speed, volume, and variety of today’s attacks, you need a strategy to solve your entire email threat problem not just part of it.

Proofpoint Products Overview

Email Protection 

Email Protection (EP)
Stop advanced threats (malware, phishing, and fraud) before they get to people while improving productivity. Filter, classify and manage unwanted email – including spam, bulk, and impostor (BEC). EP has robust reporting and search, as well as flexible deployment options (cloud, on premise).

Targeted Attack Protection (TAP)
More than 90% of targeted attacks start through email so improve your security posture; get visibility into the threats entering your organization and protect against targeted attacks that use malicious attachments and URLs. Get detailed forensics to speed up your incident response, and see who is attacking, how they're attacking, and what they're after. Links can be poisoned after delivery or threats are missed, in those cases, TAP will also let you know what threats were missed and who was affected.

Threat Response Auto Pull
Limit further damage, by automating and accelerating your email incident response process. Threat Response Auto Pull delivers automatic or push-button capability to quarantine delivered malicious email even if forwarded or sent to a distribution list. Save countless hours of searching and scripting while mitigating risk.

Email Fraud Defense (EFD)
Protect your business, brand, and supply chain from Email Fraud. Authenticate legitimate e-mail and by extension block fraudulent activity using your domains with superior visibility and efficacy. Global visibility, comprehensive intelligence, and managed services model make it easy and safe to authenticate all your legitimate senders with DMARC and block fraud.

Email Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
Prevent negligence with accuracy and control.

Email Encryption
Automatically encrypt outbound email messages and attachments.


Threat Response
Improve your cybersecurity operational efficiency and better allocate resources while maximizing your ROI. Orchestrate, automate and accelerate your incident response. Automatically confirm incident infections, enrich alerts, and enable automatic or push of a button containment. Out-of-the-box multi-vendor solution.

Data Discover
Reduce your attack surface and compliance risk by finding exposed sensitive or confidential data sitting on a network shared drive, or SharePoint sites, and enable real- time remediation through quarantine, access revocation or deletion. Cloud architecture makes deployment fast and easy, and policy is integrated across data at rest, email (Email DLP), and cloud (SaaS Protection).

Mobile Defense
Reduce your Bring Your Own Device policy risk while protecting employee privacy. We will scan official and secondary app stores, analyze apps code, behavior, and dynamic operating attributes and provide visibility into apps that pose a high-security risk. Combining rich mobile app analysis (50M+ Android and iOS threat database), with automated workflows that orchestrate deployed MDMs, EMMs or MSMs, Mobile Defense safeguards organizations from data exfiltration and fraud.

ET Intelligence has proof of conviction, 40+ threat categories, five-year history, and samples, as well as related domains and IPs.

SaaS Protection
Deploy Office 365, G Suite, and Salesforce with confidence. Automate policy-based response actions to alert or restrict access to content based on its sensitivity (PII, PHI) or user’s risk (ex: a user has been exposed to phishing or malware, or has logged in from different geographies in a short period). Prevent malware uploads (ex: word file with URL link to credential phish site) and control third party add-ons.

Targeted Attack Protection SaaS Defense
SaaS applications are a security blind spot for most enterprises. Detect malicious files in Google Drive, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Box, find users affected and gain visibility into the size, scope, and type of threats you face with the same world class detection leveraged in TAP for email.


Enterprise Archive
Available for email, files, social media, IM and custom applications, archive in the cloud for compliance, supervision and legal discovery. Double Blind Encryption a patented technology, allows organizations to retain exclusive access to their data while outsourcing it. Full search and discovery capabilities.

Enterprise Collaboration Archiving
FINRA and SEC regulations require all electronic communications (sent or received) to be archived. Fines are stiff. Capture social posts (associated links and attachments) for all, or a subset, of users from Salesforce, Chatter, Jive, Skype for business, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, and store them into your existing information archive. Specify your internal journaling email address, and we handle the rest. Robust reporting, social conversations can be grouped similar to email replies.

Compliance Gateway
Ensure that your content is properly retained with a built in feedback loop to confirm successful message delivery and automated or manual resubmission. Route content to multiple destinations (archives, supervision or analytic systems) based on policy. Can process any content type delivered through SMTP (email, instant messaging, and social media). Supported downstream archives include HP-Autonomy, Data minder and our Enterprise Archive.

E-discovery and Analytics

Stronger Defense Against Targeted Attacks

Microsoft offers basic email security features with Microsoft Exchange Online Protection (EOP) to provide email hygiene services. It relies on traditional filtering techniques such as IP reputation, volume, and signature-based anti-virus scans. More is needed to protect against modern day attacks, particularly as email is the most reliable way for threats to reach your users. For example, at Proofpoint, they see 1 in 10 emails contain malicious attachments. More sobering, nearly 1 in 2 click on phishing links within the first hour of receipt.

Proofpoint Essentials for Office 365 takes a next generation approach to deliver industry-leading email security for SMEs to known and new attacks. These attacks may use non-malware based attacks using social engineering to target users with imposter emails, credential phish, or even use malicious attachments and URLs to compromise your business network. By taking advantage of Proofpoint's enterprise-class Targeted Attack Protection analysis techniques, you can protect your end users by adding security scrutiny that cannot be matched by traditional approaches.

Proofpoint Advanced Email Protection

Only Proofpoint Advanced Email Security solves the entire email threat problem. The unified solution helps you prevent, detect, and respond to today’s most advanced attacks.

While other email tools may help with some aspects of email security or stop some attacks, our multilayered approach covers every threat that matters. It stops most threats before they reach the inbox.

Email Analysis and Classification—Email Protection

Proofpoint Email Protection stops email threats and other unwanted messages in just about any language. Using multilingual analysis, email classifiers divide incoming email into separate quarantines by type. This feature gives you granular control over a wide range of email. This includes spam, phishing, impostor email, malware, bulk and adult content. Email Protection also detects threats that don’t involve malware, such as credential phishing and business email compromise (BEC). Email Protection assesses the reputation of the sender by analyzing hundreds of thousands of email attributes. These include the sender/recipient relationship, headers, and content.

Protecting Against Advanced Threats—Targeted Attack Protection

Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) helps detect and block advanced threats, including ransomware, that target people through email. We detect known threats and new, never-before-seen attacks that use malicious attachments and URLs with dynamic and static analysis techniques.
