OUR SOLUTIONS FOR SMALL BUSINESS
OUR SOLUTIONS BY ROLE
Today’s security challenges won’t be solved by buying more of the same technologies. We need to change how we think about security.
Messaging, email and social media, is more important than ever and strategic assets demand modern protection,
Automating legal holds, proactive management and simplified eDiscovery of your data is critical when addressing litigation risks.
Data must be protected and it must be available. There are many rules about data, and it’s costly to the enterprise when they are broken.

Malware, viruses, phish, and spam.
DETECT UNKNOWN THREATS
Zero-day exploits and advanced targeted attacks.
RESPOND TO INCIDENTS
Single pane of glass for your threat data.
HARDEN AGAINST LOSS

THREAT PROTECTION NEEDS
Identify and stop threats before they enter your organization.
The vast majority of threats targeting organizations are threats that have already been identified, yet many organizations still fall victim to these attacks due to existing protection systems failing to block these known threats.
Proofpoint’s Enterprise Protection solution uses a combination of advanced technologies to identify more known threats and block them. These technologies leverage big data, machine learning and our unique position in the email stream of a large percentage of the Internet’s overall enterprise email traffic to provide industry leading threat identification and blocking. That’s why Gartner ranked Enterprise Protection as the leader in the Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways.
Better blocking of common attacks and malicious emails before they reach your network.
Find advanced threats faster—before users get infected.
Attackers frequently modify malware to avoid detection by traditional antivirus and blocking solutions. These polymorphic threats, along with new threats known as zero-day exploits, are very challenging to detect.
Proofpoint’s Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) solution delivers advanced malware detection for both URL-based attacks and attachment attacks. Advanced analysis technologies like statistical analysis (big data), pre-exploit indicator detection, advanced sandboxing and static analysis are just some of the techniques employed by TAP to detect advanced threats.
High detection ratios for even the most elusive threats and targeted attacks.
Verify and respond to detected threats faster resulting in reduced data exposure.
Security teams are receiving a barrage of security alerts about threats that may, or may not, be real. Precious time is lost while analysts switch between different systems to review these threats and try to confirm whether or not users have actually been infected.
Proofpoint’s Threat Response solution provides a single pane of glass for security teams to review and investigate detected threats. With support for a variety of detection vendors, including malware sandboxing solutions and SIEM, analysts can focus their time on assessing the threat and impact rather than collecting data to review. Built-in workflows support rapid containment activities like blocking CNC traffic and isolating infected machines off the network.
Rapidly respond to detected threats with higher confidence in the actions that need to be taken.
Find the sensitive data, like credit card numbers, PII and SSN, in your network and cloud services—and monitor that sensitive data for unauthorized access or distribution.
As data becomes more distributed, often spread across user systems, servers and now hosted in the cloud, locating sensitive data is increasingly difficult. This distribution of data also increases the challenge of monitoring it and detecting unauthorized access.
Proofpoint’s Enterprise Privacy solution includes Content Control for data discovery and Data Loss Prevention for detecting policy violations for sensitive data.
Locate your sensitive data across the network and put policies in place to monitor for appropriate access.
REGULATORY COMPLIANCE AND INTERNAL POLICY NEEDS

COMPLIANCE NEEDS AND SOLUTIONS
Block Data Loss
Remove the risk of the wrong material leaving your enterprise. This includes proprietary material, offensive material, material not in compliance with government regulations or your own policies, or sensitive material addressed to the wrong person. If that material has already been sent and the situation has changed, immediately remove recipients’ access to the material.
Best practice is to keep security and disclosure policy decisions out of the hands of individual end users. However, for various reasons, many organizations force end users choose which content is appropriate to be sent out, whether to encrypt it or not, and how and where to send it—too often resulting in the wrong choice and a non-compliant outcome.
Proofpoint eliminates the risk inherent in individuals making security and disclosure policy decisions by implementing a user-transparent, centrally based, policy-driven data loss prevention filter. Users simply send email or files, and the appropriate action is automatically taken—e.g., allowing the information to be sent or posted, encrypted if appropriate,, or re-routing it to IT, HR, or back to the user for remediation.
Proofpoint ensures policy is implemented consistently, reliably, and without incentives for users to circumvent it.
More than two thirds of an organization’s intellectual property is typically exchanged by email between offices, partners, and customers. If your sensitive content is being sent out without proper oversight regarding its compliance to government regulations as well as your own policies, it might not be encrypted—and you run the risk of leaks and other exposure. In addition, if you count on individual users to determine the appropriateness of the content, you also risk exposure, whether caused accidentally or purposefully.
Proofpoint enables user-transparent, automatic encryption, and addresses regulated email as well as email that needs to be retracted in the event of an error or recipient data breach. No user action is required. Senders simply press “Send.” If there’s a problem with a recipient(s), the mail can be revoked.
Proofpoint makes sure information control is extended beyond the borders of the building—and so information risk is correspondingly reduced.
Comply with Regulatory Polices
Execute quick and reliable archival, search and tracking of files.
Organizations face increasingly large amounts of complex regulation, accompanied by increasingly high penalties for violations. In addition, they may experience even higher internal costs, due to compliance failure.
Proofpoint enables users to archive and search email, files, IM, and social media communications, and more, with a 20-second search time—and even tracks files as they move between email and desktops, share drives and SharePoint.
Proofpoint ensures that proof of chains of custody, information exposure, and original data are all at compliance officers’ fingertips—without the need for lengthy IT involvement or resource allocation.
Identify and track data to always understand which documents are where, thusremediating risk.
The more places sensitive data is, the more likely it will be exposed to the wrong people – via malicious breach, espionage, or simple employee error. But the modern enterprise demands that data be available. How can you balance the need for availability with the need for visibility and control?
Proofpoint is able to identify and track sensitive content and its movement before any loss occurs, regardless of cause—and employs powerful policy controls to perform automated remediation of risk (eg, notification of data in the wrong place, and deletion or reclamation as appropriate)…before it’s too late.
Proofpoint ensures that data movement and location become visible, data loss risk is reduced, and users’ behaviors are better understood.
QUICKLY FIND INFORMATION
- Retain email, files, social
- Get search results in <20 seconds
- Manage unlimited legal holds
- Dispose of data reliably
Securely archive social media, instant messaging and email
Desktop, shared drive, email, SharePoint, and cloud
COMPLY WITH RULES AND REGULATIONS
Retention and preservation
Data distributed on desktops, networked file shares, SharePoint and cloud
Organize, store and manage information according to its value—and search it fast.
Even though a majority of organizations’ intellectual property is exchanged in email, legacy email archiving doesn’t provide sufficient retention coverage. It misses social media communications and different types of attachments (not all documents are MS Office-based).
Today, high value information is everywhere—in email, social media, networked file shares, and lost in PST files. Searching for it when a regulator or Discovery request arrives is not efficient or cost-effective—with multiple points of potential failure. Proofpoint enables you to store every email, attachment, and social media communication, and file it in place on desktops, shared drives, SharePoint, social sites, and more. Our cloud architecture ensures 20-second search response times, even as storage scales to multiple terabytes.
Proofpoint delivers greater control over valuable information to improve readiness and response to legal and regulatory demands.
Store, organize, dispose of, and discover your enterprise’s files, and ensure consistent enforcement of policies across multiple file types and locations. Readily defend daily actions and business practices to regulators or in litigation.
As information retention scales to multiple terabytes, and information formats range from email to social media and from MS Office documents to PDFs, it’s far too easy for crucial data to be missed in Discovery.
Proofpoint provides web- and mobile-based real-time search of every email, attachment, social communication, and more. Cloud architecture ensures 20-second response times even across a range of file-types, locations, and multi-terabyte storage.
Achieve faster, comprehensive, and end-counsel-driven search—which ensures there are no surprises later in a Discovery process.
Comply with Rules and Regulations
For regulatory and legal purposes, ensure you have all the information you’re supposed to have—and don’t have any of the information that was supposed to be deleted.
It’s difficult for regulated organizations to demonstrate active compliance with regulatory mandates and internal policy—from supervision to retention—often across multiple divisions and geographies.
Proofpoint offers very flexible, reliable retention and preservation solutions, including such functionality as segregated policy, supervision, and administration capabilities—even as your organization scales.
Receive active supervision and consistent application of even disparate policy across multiple file types and locations— so compliance is actively demonstrated as part of daily business.
Dispose of information reliably and consistently, which is crucial for legal defense and regulatory policy adherence.
It is challenging to keep track of which documents fall under which retention and disposal policies across multiple file types and locations.
To ensure consistent disposal, Proofpoint applies multiple, overlapping policies to information centrally archived or in place—whether email, social, or documents in desktops, shared drives or SharePoint.
Benefit from policy enforcement and improved process defensibility—and expect no mistakes, no surprises, and full compliance with external and internal policy.

READ GARTNER, INC.’S MAGIC QUADRANT FOR SECURE EMAIL GATEWAYS
According to Gartner, “The secure email gateway market is mature. Buyers should focus on strategic vendors, data loss prevention capability encryption and better protection from targeted phishing attacks.”
The Gartner report also details, “Better protection from targeted phishing attacks is the most critical inbound protection capability (98% of respondents indicated that this was an important or very important capability), but only a few vendors have advanced the state of the art against these attacks. Leading solutions are incorporating methods to double check – or better, proxy – URL links in email at the ‘time of click’ rather than the time of delivery.”
