Proofpoint Automate

Compliance and Archiving

Rise above low-value supervision content

To get to meaningful content that can help you mitigate risk, you first need to plough through low-value content and disclaimers. This costs you time, money and effort. Proofpoint Automate (formerly NexusAI for Compliance) can help significantly reduce these false positives by using machine learning.


Focus review on your true sources of risk using machine learning

Adaptive targeted culling

Unlike other compliance solutions that try to find the proverbial “needles in haystacks”, Proofpoint Automate uses adaptive targeted culling to safely remove as much of the “message haystack” from reviewer queues as possible. It does this by automatically applying insights trained from past reviewer decisions and experience. Use machine learning together with flag deduplication to reduce false positives by up to 84%. This means you can reduce reviewer fatigue—which contributes to human error—and spend more of your time on high-value content.

  • Get secondary scoring from auto-review models for each flagging rule from Proofpoint Supervision.
  • Compare model decisions with reviewer decisions using reporting from the efficacy of models in evaluation mode.
  • Automatically clear low-scoring items from the review queue.
  • Automatically escalate high-scoring items to avoid a first-pass review.

Automate policy refinement

It’s easy for your review queues to get inundated with content, such as standard text, that your supervision rules are designed to flag. And things like automated notifications are another type of low-risk content that clutters your review queue. With Proofpoint Automate, you can automatically detect and avoid new disclaimers and new senders of low-value content to prevent future false positives.

  • Automatically detect low-value content and senders for administrative review to get faster integration into your configuration.
  • AI-powered suggestions give you visibility into low-value supervision content that should be excluded.

Supervise everyone intelligently

With Proofpoint Automate, you get a cost-effective way to extend machine learning insights across all your monitored users. This is unlike other compliance solutions with restrictive licensing fees. These can limit deployments and miss meaningful insights. Automate scales to meet your evolving compliance requirements. And it improves the ROI for supervising users. What’s more, it gains in value as you train it on new scenarios that are relevant to your business.

  • Get immediate value with out-of-the-box models without investment in specialised training.
  • Focus on the data and insights, rather than infrastructure and its maintenance with its scalable framework for model evaluation and execution.

Flexible ecosystem

With Proofpoint Automate, you can easily tune your data and risk scenarios. It gives you the power of out-of-the-box or custom machine learning models. And it improves the effectiveness of your regulatory compliance posture. And with Proofpoint Professional Services, you can simplify your deployment. This helps you speed up time to value and reduce the costs of maintaining your own data science team for mitigating compliance risk.

  • Gain quick time-to-value with out-of-the-box models.
  • Engage Proofpoint Professional Services to build custom models for your unique scenarios and data.
  • Empower your team to increase supervision effectiveness by building in-house models that leverage their unique insights.

Enhancing Proofpoint Supervision

Proofpoint Automate is an add-on to Proofpoint Supervision. It improves the supervisory workflow that you’ve already established with Proofpoint archiving and supervision technology. And only the messages and content that are flagged by Proofpoint Supervision will be evaluated by machine learning models and scored. For those that meet the specific thresholds configured in Proofpoint Supervision, you can set up various actions as outcomes. These include clear from review, leave in queue for human review, or escalate.

  • Experience innovative machine learning technology integrated with proven rule-based protection in one unified platform.
  • Gain deeper insights into flagged issues with real-time, archive-wide search capabilities.
  • Show and convey proof of compliance with extensive reporting and auditing on reviewer flows and remediations.
  • Export data in analytics-ready format to build and refine additional models.
