Why Proofpoint

Cybersecurity Protection Starts with People

Most cyber attacks target people, not technology. That's why our approach to cybersecurity centers around people. Our company helps you understand the individual risk people pose. We stop the threats that target them and provide the tools they need to stay safe and alert. No other cybersecurity company protects people and brands more effectively than we do.

Outdated View of an Attack

As we move our IT infrastructure to the cloud, the old defend-the-perimeter approach no longer works. People work everywhere, anytime, and on all manner of devices.

Modern View of an Attack

Cybersecurity attackers have shifted their focus from infrastructure to people. No matter how well you're managing your IT infrastructure, you can't patch your way out of these people-centered attacks. Human nature is the vulnerability.

People-centric security and compliance

Unlike most cybersecurity companies, we give you protection and visibility for your greatest security and compliance risk—your people.

We deliver the most effective solutions to protect people from the threats that target them, the data they work with, their digital activity, and the digital channels they rely on.
