Why Upgrade To Proofpoint Email Security?

Email threats are evolving faster than ever:

  • 91% of targeted attacks start with an email
  • 1 in 25 malicious email messages get clicked
  • 1 in 5 clicks occurs when users are not connected to the corporate network
  • Up to 1.8 million messages sent per day containing Dridex malware alone

Email-based attacks have become more targeted—and harder to detect with conventional tools. That’s why today’s email security must do so much more than filter spam and bulk email. Modern businesses need a solution that helps them stop threats, protect information, and respond to security events quickly and effectively. As Intel Security retires its email products, Proofpoint Enterprise Protection can help keep your organization secure.

Proofpoint Difference

Proofpoint Difference

Protection From Advanced and Targeted Threats

Email attacks have changed. Malware writers have evolved from sending masses of malicious email and hoping for a few hits. Today’s campaigns may affect only a handful of carefully selected firms or people. Proofpoint protects against even the most targeted of these attacks. Our solutions predictively analyze suspicious URLs. And rather than relying on malware signatures or sender reputation alone, we use sandboxing techniques to examine the real-world behavior of URLs and attachments.

Unsurpassed Visibility and Intelligence

Proofpoint provides granular visibility of email flow. This insight helps you understand how your organization and your people are being targeted. You also get rich context, including attacker and campaign data from across the threat landscape. Our intelligence comprises email, social media posts, mobile apps, and files. With Proofpoint, you get the details of threats and their potential impact.
