Cybersecurity leader Proofpoint recognised with industry excellence award for the strength of its people-centric security offering and commitment to innovation

London, UK —November 25, 2019 – Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced that Proofpoint Email Protection has been recognised as Best Email Security solution at the Computing Security Excellence Awards 2019.   The announcement was made on Thursday, 21st November at the awards presentation held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, organised by Computing UK.  

Email continues to be the main threat vector for cyberattacks. Cybercriminals are increasingly shifting their focus away from technology and towards targeting people. In fact, 93% of all cyberattacks target people, with 96% of these by email[1]. With robust email security in place, organisations can ensure as few of these attacks as possible reach their intended human target.

 “Cybercriminals increasingly target people, rather than infrastructure; recent research shows that 99% of all cyberattacks rely on human interaction to be successful. This makes protecting how people work a top cybersecurity priority for organisations today,” said Keith Bird, Vice President of Northern Europe, Middle East & Africa for Proofpoint. “Proofpoint rises above its competitors to help organisations drive a people-centric approach to cybersecurity, combining advanced security technology with security awareness training to defend against today’s increasingly targeted, socially-engineered cyberattacks. Being recognised at the recent Computing Security Excellence Awards once again is a welcomed acknowledgment of our commitment to innovation when it comes to advanced cybersecurity protection for businesses of all sizes.”

Computing's Security Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's leading security companies, solutions, products and personalities – those who are keeping every other part of the industry operating. For 2019, the awards cover every element of success in the security landscape, from education to email. Winners are chosen by an expert panel of judges.
