Secure Email Communication Solutions from Proofpoint
Proofpoint is an innovative security-as-a-service vendor that delivers corporate email data protection solutions that help medium- and large-sized organizations protect their communication and collaboration systems (and the sensitive corporate data they contain) from attack while enabling them to effectively meet the complex and evolving regulatory compliance and corporate data governance mandates that have been spawned from highly-publicized corporate data breaches.
The emergence of organized international data trafficking is driving an unprecedented wave of targeted, malicious attacks designed to steal vital corporate data information and valuable customer records. At the same time, the consumerization of IT, widespread adoption of mobile devices and increasing use of unmanaged Internet-based applications has resulted in the proliferation of sensitive corporate data virtually everywhere within the enterprise and rendered ineffective most of the existing security products available today.
Sensitive corporate email data may be valuable to cybercriminals, but it is also the lifeblood of any organization. IT organizations can longer simply keep corporate data locked behind a corporate firewall since virtually all key business processes in today's global economy require it to cross company boundaries. The widespread adoption and use of mobile devices, use of personal rather than company-owned devices use of unmanaged internet-based application and social networking sites have caused a proliferation of valuable corporate data well beyond traditional corporate data stores.
In addition, most companies today operate as part of global, distributed value chains working in close partnerships with an extensive network of suppliers, sub-contractors and distribution partners. Valuable corporate data is constantly exchanged between these business partners in the course of everyday operations, furthering the proliferation of data beyond those organizations' traditional "company walls."
