European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation is an European Union (EU) data privacy legislation that strengthens rules about how the personal data of EU residents should be processed. It came into effect on May 25, 2018. If you have end users, customers and employees in the EU—even if you’re based somewhere else—you (and all your third party processors) must comply with the regulation's new principles.

As a data processor, Proofpoint is committed to maintaining the privacy, confidentiality, and transparency of the personal data entrusted to us. We are publishing an ongoing series of whitepapers that describe how Proofpoint’s solutions enable you to comply with GDPR requirements such as responding to data subjects’ requests.

Additionally, Proofpoint is committed to providing GDPR compliant services to our customers. Our products are designed with data security in mind and already have many GDPR compliant features built in. Additionally, we have carefully studied the GDPR’s requirements and have enhanced our products and services to better assist our customers with their GDPR compliance efforts.

You can learn more about how Proofpoint’s solutions can help your organization in its GDPR compliance journey by visiting our GDPR solutions page.
