Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Email Protection

We are using it at the front of our organization's email. It is applied to all accounts across the organization. We use it to help identify and flag malicious and marketing emails as well as use the tools to encrypt emails that have sensitive data going out of our doors.
  • Allows for the quarantine of emails so that we have the ability to review and release emails if we deem that they are in fact legit. Some of our legit emails look spammy so the quick ability to view and release those emails is helpful.
  • With TAP having the ability to try and automatically remove emails from the inbox if it is a know bad e-mail is a lifesaver, especially during after-hours.
  • I love Tap, but the fact that it can only pull from the user's inbox is an issue with automated rules!
  • I would love to see automation uses the password in the email on the attachments to open them and find the bad emails so that Tap can remove them instead of passing them on because the attachment could not be opened.
  • The 1000s of emails blocked from our user's mailboxes do not only save time, they save possible infections and wasted time dealing with vendors who may not be needed.
  • The amount of time we spend improving our mail infrastructure does take more time but it is making us stronger and more resilient.
I was not involved in the side by side with other products.

Because we are in the financial sector many of our legit emails can look like scam emails. The intelligence feeds that we can take advantage of from Proofpoint gives us an advantage. The tools give us an easy to parse dashboard for deeper dives of real or perceived threats.
