Email Security and Protection

Email is the number one threat vector—social actions such as phishing and email scams arrive via email 96% of the time, and these security threats are always evolving. Proofpoint delivers the most effective unified email security solution to protect your people and critical data from advanced email threats. Our complete, extensible email security platform blocks malware and malware-less email threats, such as email fraud, also known as business email compromise (BEC). It provides visibility into your greatest risk—your very attacked people (VAPs). With actionable insights, you can better understand the risk you face and respond to threats faster.
