Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection for Email

We have been using the Proofpoint TAP for about 2 years now and I cannot imagine us not having it in our environment. We are constantly under attack and the TAP has been vital in helping to protect us from threats. We actually receive so many threats that I start to wonder if something is not working when I look at the TAP dashboard and it shows no threats at all! This is being utilized to protect our entire organization from email threats.
  • Impostor email detection is a fantastic feature and works very well.
  • The sandbox feature helps to ensure confidence that their evaluation of the email threat is valid.
  • Easy to use (and understand) dashboard make identifying and managing email threats a breeze.
  • Occasionally, we have a false positive or false negative, but those are easily corrected.
  • Would like the ability to upload a file to have it automatically exploded via sandbox to determine threat.
  • The cost associated with a successful threat (such as a spoofed wire transfer) far exceeds the cost of the Proofpoint TAP system.
  • It is hard to quantify the actual amount saved by threats that TAP has prevented, but I feel that it is an excellent value (and piece of mind).
  • The TAP saves us money and increases productivity by reducing the amount of malicious and SPAM emails.
I was not involved in the original evaluation or purchase decision for the Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection. Despite that fact, I feel confident that we have made the correct decision with our purchase of Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection.
Almost every single day we receive dozens of threats in which the Proofpoint TAP system stops. We also appreciate the automated emails that notify us of new threats and "at-risk" users. This helps us to quickly mitigate any threats in our environment. The emails help us to get a jump on notifying our end users of the threats. Additionally, the ability to rewrite URLs also helps to prevent clicks on malicious content.
