Stronger together: Comprehensive protection against today’s threats

Proofpoint and Palo Alto Networks have joined forces in a strategic partnership that provides platform-to-platform intelligence sharing for protection against today’s targeted threats. You get additional security benefits and expanded visibility at no additional cost.

Multilayer protection for email

When an email that contains an unknown attachment is sent to a customer, Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) will begin its sandbox analysis to determine if it is malicious. At the same time, TAP will also send that attachment to PaloAlto’s WildFire for simultaneous inspection. If either solution condemns the attachment, it will be blocked from ever reaching the user. If WildFire finds the file to be malicious, it will take that file hash and add it to Palo Alto Network's next-generation firewall, advanced endpoint protection and threat intelligence cloud.

Multilayer protection for social media

Proofpoint Digital Risk Protection secures your social media accounts with automated, real-time protection against hacks, phishing and malicious content. When we identify a URL with an unknown reputation, we use our sandboxing analysis as well as submit it to Palo Alto WildFire for analysis and verdict. From there, malicious posts are deleted by Digital Risk Protection based on policies.

Benefits of the Proofpoint and Palo Alto Networks partnership

Proofpoint and Palo Alto Networks give you a closed-loop, automated process to ensure that you’re armed with the absolute latest threat intelligence. This reduces the risk of data breaches caused by targeted attacks.
