Cloud-based information archiving platform certified to help U.S. government agencies defensibly retain data and broaden content capture capabilities

Sunnyvale, Calif.—January 20, 2017 – Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading next-generation security and compliance company, today announced its cloud-based information archiving solution has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) certification. Today’s certification allows U.S. government agencies to meet increasingly complex regulatory guidance such as National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) Capstone, and improve capabilities for data capture and defensible retention and disposition.

Faced with a 1,300+ percent jump in reported Federal cyber incidents between 2005-20151, government CIOs and IT leaders need to adopt cloud solutions that are secure, reliable and risk-adverse. The government-wide Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, provides a standardized approach for cloud product/service assessments and monitoring, which reduces an estimated 30-40 percent of government IT costs. The Proofpoint FedRAMP recognition accelerates the company’s security assessments, authorizations and cloud-based archiving solution adoption within government agencies.

“Proofpoint has worked for over a year with the federal government and secured

several levels of certifications and authorizations to demonstrate our commitment to providing one of the most secure and compliant archive in the world,” said Darren Lee, senior vice president of Archiving and Governance for Proofpoint. “We are proud to help Federal agencies safely and cost-effectively realize the benefits and scale that can only be provided by a cloud-based archive.”

Proofpoint’s leading cloud-based archiving solution simplifies the retention, discovery and investigation of data to assist compliance with evolving regulations—without the headaches of managing an archiving solution in-house. Proofpoint Federal agencies have information anytime, anywhere with sustainably fast and reliable performance (financially backed by a search performance guarantee).

Proofpoint Enterprise Archive features include:

  • Broad content capture beyond the scope of email. This includes public social media sites (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn), enterprise-focused social media platforms (e.g. Salesforce Chatter, Microsoft Yammer), instant messaging and file sharing solutions (e.g. OneDrive, Box)
  • Accelerated compliance investigation with focused review and more intelligent and flexible data classification
  • Enhanced eDiscovery readiness with swift insights, reduced noise and lower costs

Proofpoint Enterprise Archive is also fully integrated with a next-generation investigation platform for easy capture, review and reporting on all correspondence to streamline regulatory audits and inquiries. Today’s achievement builds on Proofpoint’s leader placement in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving, a recognition secured for the last five consecutive years.
