Proofpoint is pleased to announce it has just been named to CRN’s 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors Of 2018 and is recognized for fueling demand in this ever-growing industry.

We work tirelessly to help organizations change their fundamental security approach to embrace a cloud-based, agile strategy that is centered on protecting people. Cloud adoption has shifted the landscape for both attackers and defenders, moving both an organization’s data and its threats to the cloud. The threats don’t just move, though – they take on new priorities and shapes. Credential phishing suddenly unlocks access to more than just an email account. Users can connect their cloud credentials to potentially malicious apps and scripts. And the traditional security stack, focused on the network and the endpoint, can neither see nor stop the threats and associated data loss.

Proofpoint’s unique cloud security approach is critical to helping our customers stay protected, especially as that traditional perimeter disappears. Our combination of the leading solution for email, which for many organization’s is the most visible and targeted cloud application, with a leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution for Office 365 and G Suite, is unparalleled in the market.

Organizations need be aware that cybercriminals are also increasingly targeting SaaS applications by using them as a vector for malware, looking for files exposed via SaaS file sharing platforms, and of course phishing for corporate credentials, which can then be used to attack other users and penetrate deeper into an organization. Since so many organizations have not yet fully audited their cloud app usage for risk, Proofpoint offers a free risk assessment across either Office 365 or G Suite, which can be requested here.

Our cloud-based, agile security approach is also supported by Proofpoint’s world-class partners. For more information, visit us at
