Email Protection

Protect your people from spam, malware, and even non-malware threats with accurate classification,
granular control, and visibility into all email communication.

Overview

Proofpoint Email Protection stops malware and non-malware threats such as impostor email (also known as business email compromise, or BEC). Deployed as a cloud service or on-premises, it provides granular filtering to control bulk "graymail" and other unwanted email. And business continuity capabilities keep email communications flowing, even when your email server fails.

Features and Benefits

Protection against BUSINESS EMAIL COMPROMISE (BEC)

Dynamically classify impostor email (BEC) other threats that don't involve malware. These low volume, hard-to-detect threats have cost businesses more than $2.3 billion and cannot be detected by solutions that detect only malware. We detect and classify impostor email through a combination of authentication (DMARC), pre-defined rules, and dynamic classification. Our technology actively assesses the reputation of the sender for accurate protection without additional administration overhead. We analyze:

  • Sender-recipient relationship
  • Domain reputation
  • Email headers and envelope attributes
  • Email content

Protect your people from impostor email threats

Impostor email, also known as business email compromise (BEC) or CEO fraud, has bilked more $2.3 billion from more than 17,642 known victims so far.
