 Proofpoint, Inc. has uncovered what may be the first proven Internet of Things (IoT)-based cyberattack involving conventional household "smart" appliances. The global attack campaign involved more than 750,000 malicious email communications coming from more than 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets such as home-networking routers, connected multi-media centers, televisions and at least one refrigerator that had been compromised and used as a platform to launch attacks. As the number of such connected devices is expected to grow to more than four times the number of connected computers in the next few years according to media reports, proof of an IoT-based attack has significant security implications for device owners and Enterprise targets.

Proofpoint, Inc. has scored well above the industry average for the third year running in an independent customer satisfaction survey. The survey, conducted by TNS Global, gave Proofpoint a TRI*M index of 81 vs. the current industry average of 73. The TRI*M index reflects overall performance, continued usage, customers' perceptions of Proofpoint's competitive advantage and their likelihood to recommend the company and its products.

Proofpoint, Inc. today announced that Proofpoint Archiver for Chatter, a module of Proofpoint’s Social Platform for Archiving, now delivers  archiving solutions that provide selective capture from Salesforce Communities.

Proofpoint, Inc. today announced it ranked 418 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America.

Proofpoint, Inc. today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving. The new report provides a detailed overview of the Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) market and evaluates the vendors based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
