We needed a proven email security tool, and Proofpoint was always coming up. We are protecting 5 organizations over 5 countries with the cloud offering and have found no issues so far.
Proofpoint is used across the entire organization and is centrally controlled by an international IT team.
The previous product did not give half as many options and had a very simple mail filter. Proofpoint has addressed a lot of issues we didn't even realize were problems at first!
  • Email firewall.
  • Email routing.
  • Spam detection.
  • User interface.
  • Administration documentation.
  • The cohesiveness of products.
Proofpoint is an extremely powerful tool, and I would recommend this for organizations sending/receiving lots of mail or for larger organizations. A smaller organization most likely would not have any need for an email security suite with such a complex toolset; in this case, I would definitely suggest something less complex.
The support has been fantastic. We have also undertaken advanced training with Proofpoint, which proved to be extremely beneficial also, as it is the same training the support team gets, and it gave us an understanding of the level of knowledge they have. All of our experiences with Proofpoint support have been second to none.

Proofpoint is being used across my entire organization as a line of defense against everyday spam and more elicit scams. We also use it for URL filtering and web page verification. At the time of purchase, it was mainly seen as a replacement for an older and clunkier spam solution that we didn't love. Over time, it has evolved into a bigger portion of our cybersecurity.
  • Spam filtering
  • URL verification
  • Malware defense
  • Fraud defense
  • Traffic monitoring
  • With our current setup we need to add new users manually.
  • Reports aren't that intuitive.
  • Mailboxes have to be removed manually.
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.

My organization is currently using Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection, and our cyber-security threat response team manages it. It helps address the problem of phishing or any other suspicious emails that employees get that can cause the company harm. Using this product, we want to make sure that these suspicious emails don't reach the employee's mailboxes.
  • Identify suspicious emails
  • Categorizing various threats
  • The admin user interface can be cumbersome to use.
  • Their support needs improvement when it comes to knowing their product.
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.
Even though the product is good, the support can be lacking at times. The support needs to know their product inside and out, but there are times in which we figure out things before their support does. I feel as if we should not be able to fix issues that their support cant fix, hence the main reason for support.

Our entire organization uses Proofpoint Advanced Threat Protection as our email security platform. It addresses the issue of hundreds of spam/malicious attacks we receive as a company on a daily basis.
  • Spam filtering.
  • Automatic retrieval of malicious emails that have gotten through the filter but were later detected using sample data across all the organizations Proofpoint has as customers.
  • 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.
If you don't have the budget to employ a good amount of IT Security employees, Proofpoint does a good job of sustaining itself with little upkeep. You'll want at least 1-2 "Champions" obviously but for smaller staff sizes, the product is worth the budget, especially if your IT staff wears multiple different job duty hats and can't devote their full attention to email security.
Very responsive, though I wish we had one or two specifically assigned support tickets in the Community Support portal. Our assigned customer manager and technical manager have been nothing short of outstanding, however!

We use Advanced Threat Protection across our company. It has saved our users and system administrators countless hours tracking down threats and saving hours in remediation.
  • With the TAP product, we get notified of threats that have slipped through to end users and are able to remediate those threats in a timely manner.
  • The continual review of potential email threats even after they have been delivered is a life saver for us.
  • There have been some examples of TAP notifications that include only the recipient's address. This makes it difficult to investigate the potential threat. However, it's our understanding that this is due to the way the email was constructed.
  • We have seen some TAP alerts come in days after the email has been delivered.
It is excellent for post delivery analysis.
Support supplies quick turnaround and professionalism.
