Amazon GuardDuty

In a multi-account/multi-tenant environment, GuardDuty often alerts us to possible malicious traffic before it becomes an issue. The ability to automatically enable GuardDuty creates baseline security which is crucial when an account is first created. It also helps greatly in environments where other users are able to create resources as often GuardDuty alerts us to insecure resources we did not know about. It can however sometimes be a little overzealous with its assessments alerting on benign activity which then requires suppression rules.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint is definitely not for smaller organizations. I don't think that the price point and feature set is designed for that, but it is definitely for organizations that have upwards of 100 or more mailboxes that need to be monitored and protected. We do think that our organization is right in the Proofpoint sweet spot of 200+ mailboxes.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

  • There isn't a convenient one-source portal area yet for all Proofpoint products if you utilize more than one.
  • Our servers can sometimes be slow when loading pages, after placing tickets if the speeds go back up, support doesn't really do a deep dive on what's happening.

Based on 1 answer
Proofpoint offers a lot of products, but they are not particularly well integrated. They all look different, and there is no central location to access them all from, which is disappointing. However, I do know they have a big push for upgrading the UI and usability, so this should improve in the coming months I hope.

We use Proofpoint Threat Protection in conjunction with Microsoft 365. While Microsoft does have some very nice email security features that are getting better every day, we do think that Proofpoint is a value add and have no inclination to discontinue use or look for another product at this time.
