Proofpoint Wins Four Comparably Awards for Exceptional Company Culture, Compensation and Benefits


Out of tens of thousands of companies rated on Comparably over the past 12 months, Proofpoint ranks among the top in four most recent award categories

SUNNYVALE, Calif., September 21, 2023 Proofpoint, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, announced today it was honored by workplace culture leader Comparably for having the “Happiest Employees,” “Best Company Compensation,” “Best Company Perks & Benefits” and “Best Company Work-Life Balance”. In Comparably's assessment of core culture metrics, Proofpoint achieves an A+ rating and 4.9 out of 5 score for “Overall Culture.”

With over 15 million anonymous ratings on 70,000 companies, Comparably is one of the most used platforms for employer branding and a trusted third-party site for workplace culture and compensation. The Comparably Awards are based on sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rate their employer throughout the year. Nearly 20 core culture metrics are measured, from leadership and work environment to career growth and company outlook.

“This recognition is especially meaningful because it comes directly from our employees,” said Ashan Willy, chief executive officer at Proofpoint. “Our people-centric approach to cybersecurity extends to supporting our employees and cultivating a positive, inclusive and inspiring workplace that fosters collaboration and innovation. The strong rankings by Comparably are a clear reflection of the trust, commitment and passion that permeate our organization.”

These four awards join additional recent honors for Proofpoint’s workplace and culture. Earlier this year, Proofpoint was named a “Best Company: Bay Area” and “Best Teams: HR” by Comparably. Proofpoint’s human resource strategy was also honored by the Espresa Culture Benefits® platform with an Innovation and Excellence award for the past two years.
