Email is the No. 1 Threat Vector

Stop inbound attacks and secure sensitive outbound data. 

If you can’t see email attacks, you’re missing most threats

More than 90% of targeted attacks are launched through email, exploiting the weakest link in the security chain: people.

Advanced Email Protection from Proofpoint gives you clear visibility into all email communication. It increases your email security and stops email fraud, targeted attacks, ransomware, credential phishing, and more. And it helps you control outbound email to comply with industry rules such as PCI, HIPAA and others.

Protect against Email Fraud

Our dynamic impostor email classifier helps protect everyone, from global enterprises to small and medium businesses, from email fraud. Unlike most cyber threats, email fraud attacks usually don't involve malware, so standard malware tools can't stop it.

The classifier accurately identifies impostor email threats and stops them before they trick employees into sending money and confidential information to cyber criminals.

With the dynamic classifier, you can create dynamic policies that change as quickly as threat tactics do.

Stop targeted attacks

Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) helps detect, mitigate, and resolve advanced threats that target people through email.

Detect known threats and new, never-before-seen attacks that use malicious attachments and URLs.

No other security technology is better at stopping targeted attacks that use polymorphic malware, weaponized documents, and credential-stealing phishing techniques to access sensitive information. 

Avoid ransomware

Stop ransomware from extorting and disrupting your business. 

Our malware analysis system technology uses a combination of these techniques to analyze advanced threats in real time and stop them before they reach their targets:

  • Real-time checks against emerging campaigns and new malicious websites targeting our customer base
  • Static code analysis that looks for suspicious behavior, obfuscated scripts, malicious code snippets, and redirects to other malicious sites 
  • Dynamic malware analysis that sandboxes the destination URL or suspicious attachments to simulate a real user on a machine, observing any changes made to the system
