Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

Proofpoint is being used across the entire organization to prevent spam and malware. The additional features, sandboxing, URL rewrite, and spoofing protection protect our organization against other threats over email. Proofpoint also provides and in depth dashboard to gain insight into what sort of attacks we are experiencing and which users are being targeted.

  • Blocks Spam
  • Blocks Phishing emails
  • Blocks malware attachments
  • Quarantines email and provides and easy to use search utility to find and release those emails if needed.
  • My only recommendation here is that Proofpoint should provide a longer time frame of logs in the threat dashboard.
  • Proofpoint has reduced the time to research and block spam emails
  • Reduced threats and incidents over email
  • Reduced time to research email logs
Proofpoint has reduced the number of threats we were experiencing such as:

  • Malicious attachments
  • Ransomware
  • Phishing
  • Spoofed emails
  • Malicious links
Overall, Proofpoint has drastically reduced the need for incident response since malware simply does not make it into our environment over email. The Proofpoint architecture also decreases downtime since we can have multiple slave servers processing email in the event of a failure.
Proofpoint imposter prevention protects our executives and administrative staff against attacks that try to access confidential data such as account information, tax information, and other personal information. We are confident that this reduces our threat of a breach over email by utilizing the imposter protection that Proofpoint provides our organization.
We looked at Mimecast and Proofoint at the same time. After looking at the feature comparison and ease of administration, we decided that Proofpoint was the way to go. Proofpoint was easier to deploy on premises which is critical to our organization. Mimemcast was difficult to deploy on premises and didn't seem to be a good fit for our context.
I believe Proofpoint is one of the foundational controls every organization should have. You are leaving your organization open to a variety of email threats if you are not using it. I cannot think about any situation where it would not be appropriate. Proofpoint is well suited to provide email protection, secure email, and email management.
