Share with your network!

Proofpoint has made more investments in our Aegis threat protection platform this year that can help support our federal agency customers and partners in their missions. This blog provides an overview of some of these recent innovations and enhancements. 

Supernova Behavioral Engine  

In October we started rolling out the Supernova Behavioral Engine to Proofpoint FedRAMP Email Protection environments. Supernova is an industry-leading detection stack that uses advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to stop threats in real time.  

Not only does Supernova stop spam, but it also protects against threats that don’t rely on malware, like business email compromise (BEC), supplier fraud and telephone-oriented attack delivery (TOAD) attacks. It also detects malware-based threats, like ransomware. And it scans for phishing messages pre-delivery so that they’re never delivered to users.

With this recent release, Supernova is now available to all Proofpoint email security customers around the world. It is a free detection stack upgrade that is integrated into our broader platform. You can learn more about the Supernova Behavioral Engine here.
