Proofpoint: Defending the
Ever-changing Now

Proofpoint, Inc. helps the most successful companies in the world protect and govern their most sensitive business data.

Proofpoint is an innovative security-as-a-service vendor that delivers data protection solutions that help medium- and large-sized organizations protect their data from attack and enable them to effectively meet the complex and evolving regulatory compliance and data governance mandates that have been spawned from highly publicized data breaches.

Proofpoint, positioned by Gartner in the Leaders Quadrant in their 2014 Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways, and 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving, delivers an integrated suite of on-demand data protection solutions spanning threat management, regulatory compliance, data governance and secure communications—all of which are based on a common security-as-a-service platform.

Simply put, our solutions help organizations to:

  • Keep malicious content out of their environments
  • Prevent the theft or inadvertent loss of sensitive information
  • Collect, securely retain, govern and discover sensitive data for compliance and litigation support
  • Securely communicate and collaborate on sensitive data with customers, partners and suppliers

Our Commitment to Customers

Proofpoint currently serves more than 2,400 global enterprises, universities and government agencies, supporting tens of millions of users. Our customers represent nearly every vertical in the public and private sphere, but they all have one thing in common: They trust Proofpoint to better defend, protect and govern their most valuable data, using our solutions to block spam and viruses, prevent leaks of confidential information, encrypt sensitive data and securely archive email.

We work closely with our customers to deliver the highest levels of support, ensure industry-leading levels of customer satisfaction and continually improve and enhance our solutions.

Deep Expertise and Commitment to Innovation

Founded in 2002 by Eric Hahn, a pioneer in corporate messaging solutions and former CTO of Netscape, Proofpoint has continued to stay ahead of the curve—and a rapidly-changing threat landscape—through continual innovation and a unique focus on enterprise communication and collaboration risks.

Patented and unparalleled technology puts Proofpoint in a class by itself. Proofpoint MLX™ machine learning, the application of big data analytics and the use of global threat correlation systems deliver unrivalled anti-spam and data loss prevention accuracy. DoubleBlind Key Architecture™ ensures the complete security of archived email and other data. High-speed search technologies enable rapid discovery with guaranteed performance.

Proofpoint customers benefit from the scalability, performance and economic advantages of Proofpoint's ongoing investment in the latest innovations in virtualization and cloud computing.

The Proofpoint Difference

Proofpoint's pioneering use of innovative cloud-based technologies including big-data analytics, machine learning, deep content inspection and advanced encryption provides our customers with both superior protection against the latest advanced threats as well as lower total-cost-of-ownership, compared to alternatives provided by traditional security vendors.

Proofpoint’s solutions uniquely deliver: 

Superior Defense against Today's Advanced, Targeted Threats

Leveraging big data analytics, deep content inspection and machine learning, Proofpoint detects and stops targeted "spear phishing" and other advanced attacks more effectively than competing alternatives. By processing and modeling billions of messages per day, big-data analytics allow Proofpoint to spot anomalies in traffic flow to detect targeted attacks.

Deep content inspection enables Proofpoint to identify malicious attachments and distinguish between valid emails and "phishing" emails designed to look authentic and trick end-users into divulging sensitive data or clicking on a malicious URL. In addition, Proofpoint leverages advanced machine learning to detect and quarantine targeted "zero-hour" attacks in realtime—even if they have not been seen previously at other locations.

The combination of these capabilities along with closed-loop incident response delivers a level of data protection that legacy solutions (which were designed to stop the broad-based attacks of past years) cannot match.

Comprehensive, Integrated Protection for Private Data

Our broad set of solutions—including Proofpoint Enterprise Protection, Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy, Proofpoint Enterprise Archive, Proofpoint Governance, and Proofpoint Essentials—spans threat protection, compliance, governance and secure communications. These solutions enable organizations to:

  • Keep malicious content out of their environments
  • Prevent the theft or inadvertent loss of sensitive information
  • Collect, securely retain, govern and discover sensitive data for compliance and litigation support and
  • Securely communicate and collaborate on sensitive data with customers, partners and suppliers.

Just as importantly, our solutions are designed to work effectively even in today’s world of empowered end-users and proliferating data.

Secure Communication and Collaboration Made Active and Easy-to-Use

Unlike first-generation offerings that either simply block communication or audit violations, Proofpoint's solution actively enables secure, intercompany and business-to-consumer communications. Our policy-based email encryption service automatically encrypts sensitive emails and delivers them to any PC or mobile device—all with a seamless, easy-to-use experience. In addition, our secure file-transfer solution makes it easy for end-users to securely share and collaborate on large documents.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

Our proprietary security-as-a-service solution can be deployed in Proofpoint’s global datacenters, in a private cloud on the customer's premises, or in a hybrid combination that leverages both Proofpoint and customer assets. All three models leverage the big-data systems deployed in Proofpoint’s cloud for global threat correlation and analytics, high-speed search, software updates and other core functions.

This deployment flexibility enables Proofpoint to deliver superior security and compliance while maintaining the favorable economics afforded by cloud computing and is a major competitive advantage over legacy on-premises and cloud-only offerings. In addition to cloud economics, customers also realize significant TCO benefits by deploying a single integrated data protection solution from Proofpoint rather than incurring the licensing, integration and operating costs associated with disparate security, compliance and governance systems.
