We are delighted to announce that Proofpoint’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution has been recognised as the Best Cloud Security solution at the Computing Security Excellence Awards 2021. The announcement was made on Wednesday 1st December in an exclusive e-book.   

Judges commended Proofpoint CASB for its effectiveness, saying: "A fantastic product that organisations will increasingly have a need for. We were impressed by the level of innovation shown."

Cloud Account Compromise is a top cybersecurity worry for UK CISOs in 2021, with 39% of respondents citing this as their biggest concern in Proofpoint's Voice of the CISO 2021 Study. This is set to stay, with remote and hybrid working making cloud apps vital to business continuity, and a rife target for cybercriminals.

It protects organisations from account compromise, oversharing of data and compliance risks in the cloud.
