Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We use this for our entire organization. Primary requirements for bringing it in was for data loss prevention (DLP) and to meet client and regulatory requirements. We also leverage this platform for e-mail protection against spam and phishing attacks.
  • SaaS service is very resilient and stable.
  • Reporting and protection is good.
  • Data loss prevention (DLP) is very flexible and accommodates our needs..
  • Custom rules, routing policy, and processing of email meeting a wide array of needs.
  • Additional/deeper integration with other security technology.
  • Integration between Wombat (phishing campaign tool) and EM.
  • Decrease in security incidents due to effective attack protection.
  • Central email relay for all corporate and client traffic, decreases need for an additional email platform.
Feature-wise, identical. Mimecast was very affordable compared to Proofpoint. We were able to get annual costs with Proofpoint down to a more acceptable level. Also, the migration costs for us (due to deep customization) was more effort for little return (after PP price was lowered).
The entire suite meets many enterprise needs. The challenge is the over all-suite cost/pricing and comparisons with competitors like Microsoft O365.
