Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

Proofpoint Email Protection is being used by us as an email gateway kind of thing. It filters and gets rid of unwanted emails (SPAM and Phishing) that users receive all the time.
It's a pretty good application that learns with time to improve even more the protection it provides users with, making the experience better as it goes.
  • Filters emails users receive
  • Allows users to quarantine and send suspicious emails for further analysis
  • Allows users to move emails to a low priority inbox, so if they receive an email and it's not suspicious but the user don't want have that in their mailbox, they cant check on that later.
  • Implementation was a bit confusing for users, not a big issue though.
  • In the first few days, thousands of unwanted emails were blocked
  • The entire company is very satisfied with the application and how easy it is to manage unwanted emails
  • Many executives rely on the encrypted email feature and we've heard splendid feedback
Symantec Email Security worked as well. It blocked unwanted emails, but usage was not as smooth as Proofpoint's. It was a bit of a messy environment and every time an email needed to be white listed, IT had to do that. With Proofpoint Email Protection, users manage their own white/black listed email addresses or domains. IT still has to manage most of the settings, but it took of a huge weight from our shoulders, allowing us to focus on other tasks.
Proofpoint Email Protection is well suited for a huge variety of companies that struggles with unwanted emails or can be considered a potential phishing target. Even small companies that use email to communicate would be a good fit, the only scenario where I don't Proofpoint Email Protection being really a must is for self-employers who may use a different email client with protection features included.
