Event timeline alerts

Robust alert library. Immediate value.

Out-of-the-box alert libraries make setup easy so you can start getting value right away. You can use and adapt prebuilt insider threat scenarios or build rules from scratch.

Robust Alert Library

Unified console

Gather telemetry from endpoints, email and cloud for multichannel visibility in a centralized dashboard. Intuitive visualizations help monitor risky activity, correlate alerts from different channels, manage investigations, hunt for threats and coordinate response with stakeholders. Dive deep into alerts to see the metadata and gain contextualized insights to quickly understand which events need a further look and which ones can be closed out.

Alert Dashboard

Automated content scanning and classification

Identify sensitive data with data-in-motion content scanning that reads data classification labels created with Microsoft Information Protection. Augment your data classification efforts with proven best-in-class content detectors from Proofpoint Cloud DLP and Proofpoint Email DLP to protect your intellectual property.

Easy integration

Every security environment is different. To work seamlessly with your existing workflows, webhooks make it easy for your SIEM and SOAR tools to ingest alerts to help identify and triage incidents quickly. Automatic exports to your owned and operated AWS S3 storage makes even the most complex security infrastructures easy to integrate.

Flexible data controls

With data centers in the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan, we can help you meet data residency and storage rules. Separate endpoint data by geography with easy grouping. Limit analysts’ access to specific users’ data on a strict need-to-know basis and within a defined period of time.

Privacy controls

Privacy controls help your business meet compliance requirements and maintain trust with employees. You can hide a user’s identity to protect their privacy while eliminating bias in investigations. Data masking keeps data private and ensures data is only viewable on a need-to-know basis.

Sharing made simple

Data interactions, application use and screen captures of endpoint activity provide irrefutable evidence for investigations. Export records of risky activity across multiple events as a PDF and other common formats for easy sharing and cross-team collaboration.
