Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We implemented the Proofpoint solution approximately 18 months ago. It has proved to be invaluable. We use it institution wide and have been very pleased. The imposter prevention module alone prevented a great number of potential threats. We spend much less time putting out fires because Proofpoint is working so well. We had an excellent implementation team who took the time needed to maximize deployment and ensure our understanding of the product. Support is prompt to respond when needed.
  • Deployment was excellent. With over 25 years experience of working with vendor assisted deployments, I will say this was definitely one of the smoothest I every experienced.
  • The imposter prevention module is an excellent tool that saves lots of time.
  • I love the smart search functionality.
  • TAP Dashboard is definitely a favorite feature.
  • I would like the smart search section to have a message preview area.
  • Proofpoint has definitely been a very positive return on investment. It helps us to meet our business objectives by protecting email flow which is vital to everyone these days.
  • The Proofpoint solution has given us more time to work on projects without having to spend excess time reacting to malicious email, blocking links, etc.
We evaluated a few other products and found Proofpoint to be the best fit for our organization.

Proofpoint email protection is very well suited for our environment. They continue to build on the technology and its use has greatly reduced the time it takes to manage malicious mail, search for messages, and contain threats. The daily digest is also a great feature that allows end users to decide for themselves what messages they want or do not want to receive.

From a protection standpoint, I can't think of a scenario where Proofpoint is not appropriate.

Evaluating Proofpoint Email Protection and Competitors

Yes - We replaced the Barracuda Spam filter with Proofpoint and are very happy we did. The Barracuda spam filter we had couldn't keep up with our mail flow and did not have much of the functionality we now have with Proofpoint.

  • Product Reputation
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
The feature set was most important next to support. Proofpoint continues to enhance their platform to stay ahead of constantly changing threats to email continuity.
