Visibility into user behavior

Legacy DLP tools are data-centric and miss important context on user intent and surfacing unknown risk. This results in flawed verdicts or failure to mitigate risk.

Proofpoint provides a human-centric approach to DLP that gives you insight into user behavior, communication relationships and intent. This means analysts can quickly assess data loss risk, reach high-fidelity verdicts and take appropriate action.

Mitigate Data Loss

Operational efficiency

Legacy DLP tools come with consoles that were built in a previous era. Analysts scramble to investigate cross-channel incidents using multiple dashboards and siloed tools. This drains resources and wastes valuable time.

Proofpoint provides you with a unified console and advanced analytics that streamline alert triage and correlation across email, cloud, endpoint and web. Our solution helps you build custom explorations to proactively manage data loss risk.

Modern architecture

Legacy DLP tools require costly-to-maintain on-premises infrastructure. With resource-heavy agents (kernel mode), legacy DLP tools can impact endpoint performance and user productivity.

Proofpoint delivers a solution that’s built in the cloud, deploys quickly, scales automatically and is easily maintained. It employs a highly stable, lightweight agent (user mode) which requires less than 2% of compute resources. The same agent elevates visibility to potential insider threats, which eliminates the need for yet another agent.
