Email fraud, or impostor email, doesn't use malware attachments or malicious URLs, making it invisible to even "next-generation" email defences. Our layered approach stops this evolving threat before it reaches your employees, partners, and customers. Safeguard your critical information and secure all the avenues that email fraud attackers pursue.
Email fraud puts every email-based relationship at risk
Stop attacks before they reach the inbox
Proofpoint Email Protection provides pre-defined anti-spoofing rules and subject tagging to flag emails as potential email fraud.
For even deeper protection, our dynamic Impostor Classifier uses machine-learning technology to analyse relevant information such as email content, sender reputation, and email address manipulation.
These insights are used to set an Impostor Email Score. This score is configurable and protects you from multiple types of email fraud attacks.
Authenticate Your Email with Confidence
Authentication methods such as DMARC, SPF, and DKIM can prevent domain spoofing, the most common email fraud technique. But authentication can be difficult and may end up blocking legitimate email.
Proofpoint Email Fraud Defense makes it easy to authorize legitimate senders and block the fraudulent ones—before they reach the inbox.
Prevent outbound communication to impostors
Should an email fraud threat reach your organisation, you can still prevent sensitive information from leaving. Proofpoint Email Data Loss Prevention proactively finds, classifies, and stops outbound communication associated with email fraud—all automatically.
Protect tax information, employee records, wire transfers, and other critical data from impostors.
Protect your people from spam, malware, and non-malware threats with accurate classification, granular control, and visibility into all email communication.
