Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We are currently using the Proofpoint suite across our entire campus. Proofpoint has proven to be a wonderful tool for alerting us when a malicious or phishing email comes in. We are most appreciative that it is so much easier to pull the messages by using the smart search feature. Also the automatic pulling and quarantining the message.
  • The ease of use of the system. The initial setup can be daunting but once it is up and running it practically runs itself.
  • The quick response from Proofpoint when an email that was sent to a mailbox but was later found to be malicious.
  • One thing I like is the fact that if we pull an email which later turns out to be good we are then able to un-quarantine the messages, either a few or all.
  • The ease of use of the smart search feature. This makes putting together a CSV file to use in TRAP to pull messages from mailboxes on campus much easier than having to run a exchange PowerShell to remove mail from mailboxes, especially when you have multiple exchange servers
  • Search feature
  • Easier location to block URLS and or email addresses
  • Unable to locate emails which have been quarantined
  • Our time has been reduced in our troubleshooting email issues.
  • With the implementation of our Proofpoint solution we have had a tremendous response from our users.
  • Proofpoint has proven to be one of the best investments we have done. Now this is my opinion as an engineer.
We used Barracuda at one point but the price was going up and the performance and features went down or went away all together. Proofpoint has definitely proven to be an amazing product.
Using Proofpoint email protection helps assist in our daily routine of ensuring our email system is safe and secure. The feature where it pulls emails from the user's email accounts and displays to us whether the email was read or unread helps us in determining if a user needs to have further training.
