Proofpoint

Our Corporate Overview

What Sets Us Apart

Email, social media, and mobile devices are the tools of your trade—and for cyber criminals, the tools of attack. Proofpoint protects your people, data and brand against advanced threats and compliance risks.

A Proven Suite of Solutions

Our solutions stop 99% of attachment-based attacks. And every day, we detect and block advanced threats and compliance risks in more than 2.2 billion emails and 22 million cloud accounts.

Cloud-Enabled Speed and Innovation

Our solutions are built on an advanced cloud platform that blends speed and innovation. They deploy, adapt and update faster than on-premises tools to keep you ahead of the latest threats. For example, a 360,000-user organization recently deployed our solutions in just 48 hours.

Far-Reaching Intelligence and Visibility

No other cybersecurity vendor has a global intelligence platform that spans email, social and mobile. And we analyze more than 100 billion data points a day. This gives you the critical visibility you need to understand an attack—and the insight to resolve it quickly and effectively.

Happy Customers

Many companies claim to put customers first. We back it up with a sustained customer satisfaction rate of more than 95% and yearly renewal rate of more than 90%. Read our Customer Success Stories.

Our story

Eric Hahn, former CTO of Netscape, founded the company in 2002. It has since grown to more than 3,600 employees serving over 8,000 enterprises worldwide. The company went public in 2012. In 2020 it generated more than $1 billion in revenue, making it the first SaaS-based cybersecurity and compliance company to meet that milestone.

In 2021 Proofpoint was acquired by Thoma Bravo, a leading private equity software investing firm, in a transaction that valued Proofpoint at $12.3 billion. This is the largest go-private software deal in history.
