Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

It is being used throughout the organization. We use various features like TAP, TRAP. It is efficient and the global updates help in minimizing threats.

Sometimes it behaves weirdly in reporting FP due to which quarantined legitimate emails. We are planning to use PP to directly connect applications to send emails to clients especially for marketing purposes.

  • TAP
  • TRAP
  • Cloud Updates from various clients of Proofpoint.
  • Policy routes don't work correctly at times.
  • False Positive is a pain at times, essential business emails are quarantined.
  • DNS routing can be an issue at times.
  • Fairly ok, not so wow!
  • We had trouble earlier while setting up PP in our environment, after that, it has been fairly smooth.
  • Overall it is slightly above average.
  • We miss some features of CISCO IronPort and the most important reason to switch was sandboxing capability of PP.
  • However there are some features which weren't available on CISCO like TAP, TRAP, etc.
Sandboxing, TAP, TRAP along with on-premise device and cloud capability.

If you want a global threat to be identified before entering your organization, you have this information readily available pre & post-delivery of emails to the vulnerable clients. It also allows you to restrict emails to be delivered to vulnerable users and delete emails from the affected users.

False Positive is good at times as it quarantines affected emails

Transport rule, suspicious sender, etc are some features which help differentiate between legit senders.

Scheduled reports to identify potential issues and analyze the daily/weekly/monthly traffic.
