Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

IPS sensors are more suited for companies that do not have visibility into their network with third-party analyzing tools. Scenarios would be to place IPS sensors at the perimeter firewalls mainly. IPS sensors are less appropriate for companies that have third-party analyzing tools that will mitigate vulnerabilities and malicious traffic and activities already.

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.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection 6.0
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.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

HP and Fortinet were in the PoC, too, but we decided to use Cisco IPS because it integrated with the rest of our Cisco equipment better. It was well integrated in the ACI datacenter, too. Performance and actual integration work with Cisco. Most of the workers at our company are familiar with Cisco.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

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.
