We were using Microsoft Office 365 ATP for a year before switching to Proofpoint. The product is more expensive but it does a much better job than ATP in filtering the emails. Quarantine digest is fantastic and our users love it. Proofpoint assisted us with the initial setup and administration has been easy since. It is used across our whole organization.

We use Proofpoint for all our inbound and outbound email protection. We have stopped spam from entering our network. Typically users do not receive spam and if they do they sometimes send it to the support desk letting us know one got through. Some users have been here 15 to 20 years so you know their email address has been out in the wild for a while. It is a great product and one I recommend.

Proofpoint Email Protection is being used by us as an email gateway kind of thing. It filters and gets rid of unwanted emails (SPAM and Phishing) that users receive all the time.
It's a pretty good application that learns with time to improve even more the protection it provides users with, making the experience better as it goes.

It is being used by Email and Security teams to protect both our on premise and cloud-based email. We use email protection, TAP, and TRAP. We monitor and encrypt outgoing sensitive data through DLP capabilities and detect and block incoming phishing and malware.

Proofpoint is being used across our sister companies and we have an admin in each of the countries.
It is our main email security tool and is used by all of our users.

We were in need of a product that could handle higher volumes of email traffic and Proofpoint regularly features as one of the top email security products. It addresses many of the issues we were having with email security, some we didn't even realize we had. It has helped us get a very detailed overview of our email. We have extremely granular control of our inbound and outbound email.

We use Proofpoint in our Cyber Defense team not across all the organisation. As it is used to protect the unwanted traffic from being communicated to our organisation's users. We use Proofpoint to block communication based on the domain, the content of the mail, malicious site, or link present in the mail. For example if I learned that some malicious content (for example a malicious phishing site) in being spread using the mail in our organisation we reach out to Proofpoint to block the content of the mail being communicated to our users with the help of Proofpoint (in cases that it's the same in all the mail). We also use the domain being used to send the mail to our users (we used to attach a sample mail for better understanding of content). According to the priority of the case they take desired action. So ultimately it helps to stop any malicious phishing content from being spread across our organisation and protect all the users being targeted of such unwanted content from the web. Once a site is being blocked by Proofpoint it will not be accessible to the organisational user if if they clicked on it accidentally.

We are currently using the Proofpoint suite across our entire campus. Proofpoint has proven to be a wonderful tool for alerting us when a malicious or phishing email comes in. We are most appreciative that it is so much easier to pull the messages by using the smart search feature. Also the automatic pulling and quarantining the message.

We are using it at the front of our organization's email. It is applied to all accounts across the organization. We use it to help identify and flag malicious and marketing emails as well as use the tools to encrypt emails that have sensitive data going out of our doors.

It is performing email security throughout the entire business. It has numerous operating brands and many different SMTP domains. The customisation available with Proofpoint allows unique branding and policies per operating company which is very valuable.

Proofpoint Email Protection is being used throughout the organization for email security and spam filtering. We rely on Proofpoint's expertise in email security and threat analysis to stop our users from receiving malicious attachments, excessive spam, and being phished. Proofpoint offers the "right" amount of customization to the platform, but works quite well "out of the box".

Proofpoint Email Protection is a primary security control for my organization. With 80%+ of security breaches involving a phishing vector at some point a strong anti-phishing solution is a must today. While we have myriad secondary and complementary controls used in our defense in depth architecture, Proofpoint is our primary anti-phishing control.

Proofpoint Email Protection helps Advent stop both malware and non-malware threats, including imposter emails and Business Email Compromise (BEC) attempts.

This email filtering service has been good, and Proofpoint's uptime has been stellar in the 5 years we've utilized the product.

We implemented the Proofpoint solution approximately 18 months ago. It has proved to be invaluable. We use it institution wide and have been very pleased. The imposter prevention module alone prevented a great number of potential threats. We spend much less time putting out fires because Proofpoint is working so well. We had an excellent implementation team who took the time needed to maximize deployment and ensure our understanding of the product. Support is prompt to respond when needed.

First, we tested Proofpoint with one of the company domains, and then it was implemented across the entire organization. The problems encountered were simple, for example, emails from our customers were cataloged as spam, Proofpoint was making more advanced inspections of the files, the Proofpoint sandbox delayed the arrival of emails, the AdQueue folder was not known and it was thought that they were missing posts.
