Purpose and Culture

Proofpoint’s purpose and culture, which defines how we, as individuals and as a company, act are built on the following tenets:

  • Strive to Delight Our Customers and Protect Them from Advanced Cybersecurity and Compliance Threats
  • Take Initiative and Drive Accountability
  • Act with Honesty and Integrity
  • Innovate in All Aspects of Our Business
  • Be Here to Win
  • Show up with a Team Mentality

These cultural tenets allow our workforce to relentlessly pursue one of our central purposes: to earn our customers’ trust every day. We strive to earn this trust by:

  • Acting with honesty and integrity – this is foundational to our identity and we live this truth in our everyday actions.
  • Acting with urgency - we set priorities; we empathize and most simply, we do the right thing.
  • Rolling up our sleeves, working together and doing what it takes to get the job done - we have a bias towards action vs. analysis; we’re not afraid of tough situations and when necessary, we grind it out.
  • Welcoming different perspectives - we bring together the best of our diverse experiences.
  • Having the courage to tell the truth and act in a non-political way - we have the mettle to confront issues directly.
