Proofpoint Archiving and Compliance

It is great if you want to allow your end-users to have access to their own permanent archive. If they have access to this archive, they don't need to retain as many emails in their mailbox. This does two things:
1) For those admins concerned with storage limits, the users can confidently delete emails and maintain a smaller profile and 2) If they are deleting more emails, there are less emails available to attackers in the case of an account compromise.
I know #2 is a small chance of happening, but it does happen and seems to be the #1 goal of attackers nowadays to compromise an account.

This appliance is well suited for organizations that have a need to monitor, moderate, or log social networking site use or the use of any website. It is a very solid tool for any information security department to have at their disposal.

  • Discovery: It allows for easy discoveries by the compliance and cyber security departments.
  • Ethical walls: This keeps certain departments from talking to each other.
  • Very granular control. This is a big product meaning you can get very detailed with it.
  • Once it's configured and running, we hardly ever have any issues.

Cons

Proofpoint Archiving and Compliance

  • The end-user interface is lacking in appeal/aesthetics and is not that intuitive. I have seen archive solutions that don't work very well have a better interface than this. I think the interface can be prettied up quite a bit.
  • The admin interface is lacking in features and is not intuitive. It has more capabilities than the previous archives I've used, but utilizing these features is a little complicated without demos or being walked through it.
  • We have had a lot of accounts not map properly. Apparently, there is a limit as to how many errors can be outstanding before you run into issues because all the emails tied to those issues are "queued" waiting for a home (and there is a storage limit for that). I have to set a reminder to check that periodically and resolve the issues manually.

  • Its configuration options were very large and required a good deal of time to learn all of the various settings.

Alternatives Considered

Proofpoint Archiving and Compliance

Microsoft's archiving is a little clunky. Sometimes with corporate network security policies, you may run into issues downloading the data. In the end, it can work pretty well. But having a 3rd party archiving solution helps a lot for redundancy, protection, etc.Sonian's system was slow and very limited. Search functions were very limited and exporting was even more limited.

This was the only appliance of its kind that I have used. Other devices have different capabilities for web filtering such as the checkpoint firewalls, but none of them offered the overall solution that was deployed with this product at that time.
