Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection for Email

Its use as our email protection defense for phishing emails. Another layer of protection is malicious emails are not blocked. When URLs are rewritten and clicked by the user, we get an alert and actioned accordingly. Use in the whole organization. Sometimes it creates a lot of False Positives and too much noise.
  • Rewrite URL
  • Blocked malicious URL
  • Reporting
  • Alerted for possible compromise
  • Reduce false positive for impostor alerts
  • I have noticed that if the URL is long, sometimes it's not being rewritten so the layer of protection is not there
  • More proactive approach rather reactive to avoid possible compromise
  • Our Security team can sleep at night knowing that we are protected
  • Users awareness
  • Incident alert to containment - faster
Proofpoint TRAP has already proven that their product is reliable and also the innovation that they provided for the business. TAP is very reliable when it comes to alerting and blocking malicious URLs/Attachment/. This product plus the Email Protection are both very effective in preventing targeted phishing attacks and avoiding compromised accounts.

Proofpoint TAP is well suited for big companies that have more than 5000 employees. Companies that are targeted every day by phishing attacks. It adds a layer of protection even if the employee is not well versed with phishing and recon, when the user clicked a malicious link, it will be blocked and the Security team will be alerted to mitigate depending on the scenario.
