Email Protection

Advanced Email Filtering, Control and Visibility

Email Protection allows you to set up robust policies as a first step in routing email to users. You can create detailed firewall rules based on your needs. Even set up policies for anti-virus. We also leverage user bulk mail actions to improve the accuracy of future detection and classification. With a wealth of data and search tools, you can ensure your organization's email is protected.

Imposter Attacks

Impostor Email Threat Protection

Imposter attacks are hard to detect. Our Stateful Composite Scoring Service (SCSS) is a machine learning approach that searches specifically for these email threats. It uses what’s known about your unique environment, along with data from all Proofpoint customers, to more effectively detect and block email fraud
