McAfee Network Security Platform

McAfee Network Security does do what it promises, and it integrates nicely with other McAfee services my work computer has. Sometimes I do feel though that McAfee does hinder your computer/internet performance, but maybe it's a trade-off that's worth it. I do wish they would refine their threat detection so some websites that I don't think are harmful and want to visit for work purposes aren't blocked. There's been times where I google a question and a website has the answer but McAfee will block it. If you're in a position at a financial company like me, where you're dealing with sensitive/private information, it's important to have this type of software to protect data.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is well suited for environments that have a formal cyber-security department. It s not suited for smaller companies that do not have an official cyber-security department. Since these environments typically have an IT person or staff that wears multiple hats and won't have the time to give the product adequate attention to prove its value.

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.

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection

Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection gives more visibility on incoming threats that come in via email. Its competitors leave more to the imagination, whereas Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection already provides those needs right out of the box. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection is also easier to configure when it comes to an initial implementation. Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection also is ranked high in Gartner.
