Proofpoint is committed to driving continuous innovation to help organisations and institutions across the globe protect their people and defend their data. In the past year, we have made enhancements that empower companies worldwide to stay ahead of a continually evolving threat landscape and better protect their most important asset—their people—from attacks and compliance risks related to email, cloud, data and collaboration tools. This ongoing investment in innovation goes beyond Proofpoint’s solutions.

We are pleased to announce that we have recently invested in the launch of a UK-based data centre, which will provide organisations in the UK the opportunity to benefit from Proofpoint’s market leading threat protection solutions, running through an in-country data centre. This launch reinforces our commitment to providing UK customers with the ability to comply with local data sovereignty regulations, while offering a full set of threat protection capabilities.

Whether it’s ransomware, business email compromise (BEC), or a variety of other threat types, email remains the number one channel for cybercriminals to steal data and siphon billions each year. In fact, Proofpoint data shows that 91% of UK organisations experienced at least one successful phishing attack in the past year, with 84% facing at least one email-based ransomware attack and 81% facing one or more business email compromise (BEC) attacks. 

Proofpoint’s Threat Protection is a people-centric solution that protects your people from the threats that target them. By integrating multiple controls across email, cloud, users and suppliers, it provides a comprehensive way to defend against phishing, BEC email fraud, malware and ransomware. This integrated platform provides unparalleled visibility into your attack surface, more effective protection against modern threats, and positive operational outcomes.

This new data centre broadens compliance options for organisations in the UK and complements Proofpoint’s existing facilities.
