Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We are using it as an internal SMTP gateway between our customers' applications and digital senders, and our end-users or application-serviced customers. We selected Proofpoint Email Protection in part to meet a DKIM stamping need driven by adoption of a DMARC policy as mandated on all USG Executive Branch domains two years ago. We also needed to replace our prior system due to McAfee's departure from this product space. We also use other Proofpoint SaaS products in our email eco-system, and while no vendor has perfect products ( i wouldn't have a job if IT solutions were perfect...) my experience is that Proofpoint's support teams work towards meeting our business needs.
  • Purchased turn-key implementation services for our on-premises clusters, this proved to be a good buy!
  • Professional Services answered our questions and helped us move our configuration smoothly to the new appliances.
  • Also helped us with public-CA and DKIM implementations that were outside our prior systems.
  • Patching has been painless so far and easy to manage for our engineers.
  • Support cases are well supported in general,
  • We could use a TAM or CSM if that were available.
  • Cases can drag on at times due to loss in focus.
  • It has helped make our DMARC policy transition possible, allowed us to centralize and streamline DKIM stamping and key management inside our network.
Other gateways did not have the capacity to DKIM sign the >200 domains we have and allow STARTTLS to be utilized.
Proofpoint Email Protection is well suited as a straight up email gateway and has a good A/V, supportable core system. The cost alignment on the 'bells and whistles' we haven't purchased licenses for, moves this into a less affordable range per seat cost. I trust the engineering/integration of these specialty tools into the whole, but selling ROI up to leadership for moving these away from our cloud services provider is a steep proposition.
