Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We use Proofpoint Email Protection for our 3 MX entries in DNS. All external email flows into Proofpoint before we distribute it to Exchange and SAP. It is being used enterprise-wide (5000+ users) and the SPAM/virus/malware detection is excellent. It does all of the heavy lifting so that Exchange can focus on distributing the email internally.
  • SPAM/virus/malware detection - works well and you can add custom rules for known good domains.
  • Software upgrades always go off without a hitch.
  • Hardware refreshes are simple with the high quality assistance from Proofpoint's case focused engineers.
  • I would like to see better supported Microsoft Outlook plug-ins that allow SPAM submission. I occasionally have some error messages pop-up regarding the existing PP plug-in when Outlook starts up.
  • Self-diagnosing emails sent to PP administrators if any part of the cluster is experiencing issues such as storage, CPU, or RAM related.
  • Positive ROI due to the malware/viruses it catches daily which would cause severe issues otherwise.
  • Easy to administer once everything is configured.
  • Excellent support.
We have greatly benefited on several occasions where regular threats make their rounds.
I am not sure of any particulars that come to mind.
Proofpoint is a top contender in Gartner's Magic Quadrant and rightfully so due to its completeness.
Any enterprise that needs a frontline barrier for on-premise email should be using a fine product such as Proofpoint.
