Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

Proofpoint Email Protection is used across the entire organization. It is the cornerstone for our email security capabilities and ties into advanced email protection. Its functionality is discussed in detail in our security awareness program.
  • Blocks malicious email.
  • Enables users to better identify suspicious email.
  • Reduces the overall susceptibility of a security issue.
  • Is not fully integrated with newly acquired Wombat capabilities (e.g., two plug-ins vs. one).
  • The email digest feature is not easily configurable and is not pretty or easy to use.
  • Reduces help desk call volume.
  • Increases overall security awareness of employees.
  • Requires minimal employee time for training.
We replaced Cisco IronPort with Proofpoint. We also considered Zix. Both are good products, but this has proven to be very solid, very stable, widely used, and the standard amongst our peers. We did not choose it because it was popular, but we see why it is.
It simply is the best email protection system a company can get. We currently use it with internally hosted email and will use it when we migrate to externally hosted email.
