Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We are utilizing the Proofpoint's hosted appliance as our primary email protection for spam, malware, and other threats. Information Technology deployed this across our entire organization as a reactive step due to issues related to phishing. The Proofpoint engineering team worked with us on a weekend to ensure we were able to implement and remediate the attack that was occurring.
  • Proofpoint allows us granular control in routing email to our end users.
  • The end-user digest feature allows users to get a nice report every morning of all of their bulk junk mail. They get to decide if they want to release and read a message.
  • Proofpoint has a powerful machine learning system that scores attacks in order to stop new and unknown threats.
  • The web portal could definitely be rewritten to make it more user-friendly. It is a bit antiquated and clunky. Needs an HTML 5 overhaul.
  • Work could be put into making it easier to find options. Again, the interface needs overhauled.
  • Initial installation could be streamlined with simpler documentation and assistance in understanding what features should be taken advantage of in Proofpoint vs. Office 365 from a security perspective.
  • We haven't worked to create tangible metrics, but rest assured that the ROI is quick.
  • It doesn't take more than one social engineering attack or malware linked email to justify the purchase of Proofpoint.
  • Instant Value creator!
Proofpoint gives you a better feature set, with more comprehensive tools, and much better visibility and reporting than you can get with an out of the box deployment of Office 365 Online protection. We needed more visibility into what was happening and why and that is something that Proofpoint gave us.
Appropriate: If you are a business that has recently migrated to Office365 and is struggling to gain control over your email security with the built-in tools. Also, if you are a lean IT department and can't manage email security and juggle your other commitments. Less Appropriate: If you are a small shop with a minimal budget, you can fine-tune Office365 security settings instead of deploying Proofpoint. Be aware that it will take much of your time to do it.
