Advanced Security and Compliance for Higher Education

Proofpoint empowers your educational institution by providing visibility into your people—your faculty, researchers, students, and staff. We can help you identify your most targeted users, how are they being attacked, and whether they have been exposed.

Each new semester brings new targets and threats

Every semester new students receive their new college email address—this means more email addresses for attackers to target. Even today, most cyberattacks still start with phishing emails because their tactics continue to evolve and work. Our advanced email security solutions can protect against all types of email-based threats and help you stop cyber threats before they reach your people.

Reduce risk by taking away attacker tools

Stop fraudulent and compromised accounts from being used to send malicious messages to exploit people in your organization. Among colleges and universities, Proofpoint researchers have observed a rise in account compromises. These are being used in everything from email fraud to internal phishing attacks. Our cloud app security solutions can help you stay a step ahead—find and act on suspicious email forwarding rules, deletion of login alerts, abnormal device usage and other indicators of account takeover.
