Security and Compliance for Small Business

Protect against advanced targeted threats and compliance risks with enterprise-class technology tailored to small and medium businesses.

Solutions for SMB Security and Compliance

Secure Your Business from Advanced Cyber Threats

Today’s cyber attacks are increasingly targeting individuals through email and not infrastructure. Over 90% of all cyber threats start with an email that uses social engineering, relying on users to click a malicious link or run a malicious code. This makes people the number one attack target. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are attacked with these types of threats, but they lack the IT personnel and budget to have the enterprise-class security posture to stop them.

Proofpoint Essentials provides you with an enterprise-class security and compliance solution. It protects your end users against malware-based threats before they ever reach the inbox. These threats include malicious attachments or links, and malware-free threats such as email fraud or credential phishing emails.

Focus on Your Business and Stay Secure

Essentials is a cloud-based solution that’s tailored to SMBs with limited IT resources. That means it is easy for you to deploy, manage and maintain. With the modern and intuitive user experience, your administrators can quickly and easily complete management tasks—freeing them up to focus on more strategic tasks. Our 24x7x365 expert technical support gives you peace of mind, knowing that expert help is always there when you need it.

Stay Compliant with Regulations

Just like large enterprises, your small or mid-size business needs to comply with industry regulations. And it’s critical to prevent sensitive and customer information from leaving your organization. Essentials encryption and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities are flexible and scalable. And they keep security and disclosure policy decisions out of the hands of your end users. With our policy-driven DLP filters, your users can simply send emails. Essentials automatically works in the background to keep your organization compliant and send email securely.
