Detect Advanced Threats

Data Sheet Email Protection

The goal:
Find advanced threats faster – before users get infected.

The problem:
Attackers known that users are your weakest link, and email is the easiest way to reach almost any employee in any organization.  Attackers frequently modify malware to avoid detection by traditional antivirus and blocking solutions. These polymorphic threats, new threats known as zero-day exploits, and malware-free threats are very challenging to detect.

The solution:
Proofpoint improves email security capabilities with accurate defense against both malware and malware-free threats.  Protect against advanced threats such as imposter emails, and emails that use malicious attachments and URLs – including zero-day threats, ransomware, polymorphic malware, weaponized documents, and credential phishing attacks.  Accurately classify unwanted mail, and gain granular control and visibility into all email communication.  

The result:
Superior blocking of malware and malware-free threats.

The goal:
Understand the threats targeting your organization.

The problem:
As security becomes board level conversations, deeper insights are needed to understand the threats targeting your organization and to rapidly respond to threats.

The solution:
Proofpoint gives you the visibility into threats entering your organization, and provides the threat data at an organization, threat, and user level.  Distinguish between broad attack campaigns and targeted threats.  See attacks directed at executive leadership or other high-value employees.  Get forensic information on threats and campaigns in real time.  Download reports or integrate with other tools through APIs.

The result:
Immediate visibility and insights into attacks targeting your organization.  Prioritize actions on a tactical and strategic level.

Respond to Incidents

Data Sheet Threat Response

The goal:
Verify and respond to detected threats faster resulting in reduced data exposure.

The problem:
Security teams are receiving a barrage of security alerts about threats that may, or may not, be real. Precious time is lost while analysts switch between different systems to review these threats and try to confirm whether or not users have actually been infected.

The solution:
Proofpoint supports the integration of additional threat detection vendors, including malware sandboxing solutions and SIEM, so that analysts can focus their time on assessing the threat and impact rather than collecting data to review.  Built-in workflows support rapid containment activities like blocking CNC traffic, isolating infected machines off the network, and moving users into restricted permission groups.  Auto-pull flags or moves delivered emails to an admin-only quarantine, triggered by real-time threat convictions.  Automated endpoint forensic collection and compromise verification helps prioritize response.

The result:
A sustainable security ecosystem to rapidly respond to detected threats with higher confidence in the actions that need to be taken.
