Features and Benefits
PWD is the simplest security product to deploy and manage and empowers you to protect hundreds of thousands of users in days — not weeks or months.

Web Isolation Technology (100% Cloud)
PWD uses Proofpoint’s extensive threat intelligence capabilities to extend advanced email security to personal webmail and to the broader web through URL Isolation. All URL links inside personal webmail are protected by Proofpoint TAP Personal Webmail Defense which both inspects the URL for malicious links and renders the website using web isolation technology, giving us unmatched intelligence across corporate and personal email. Browsing happens in the cloud rather than directly on the employee's computer.
URL links inside personal webmail are protected by URL Isolation technology.
Potentially risky actions are prohibited such as downloads and uploads.
