VMware Deploys Proofpoint Suite of Solutions 
Successful Implementation of the Proofpoint Suite as Well as
Proofpoint Integration With VMware Zimbra Further Addresses Advanced
Needs for Global Enterprises 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/11/12 --  Proofpoint Inc.,
(NASDAQ: PFPT) a leading security-as-a-service provider, today
announced that VMware has implemented the Proofpoint suite of
solutions including enhanced archive, eDiscovery and compliance for
the VMware Zimbra(R) platform. This successful implementation as well
as continued collaboration between the two companies further
addresses the advanced needs around data protection, archiving and
compliance for global enterprises. 
VMware's primary reason for deploying Proofpoint's suite of solutions
was to automate and streamline their current system, to save money
and to implement an archiving system that integrates with Zimbra as
well as Exchange. 
"Proofpoint will be instrumental in helping us set up a more
efficient archiving process to meet compliance regulations and speed
up responses to ediscovery requests," said Mark Egan, CIO at VMware.
"We wanted an affordable email archiving and management solution with
minimal end user interaction, search and off-site storage
capabilities and an efficient legal preservation process. Proofpoint
has provided security for our email for years and has proven to be a
trustworthy partner."  
Proofpoint has also worked with VMware Zimbra to integrate its
solutions with the VMware Zimbra platform to provide users with
enhanced eDiscovery, compliance and email security. Proofpoint
Enterprise Archive(TM) and Proofpoint Enterprise Protection(TM) are
both compatible with VMware Zimbra, and provide customers with
advanced threat protection, spam detection, phishing protection, data
privacy, virus protection, dynamic email reputation and data loss
prevention capabilities. Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy(TM) is also
compatible with Zimbra. 
Proofpoint Brings New Functionality to VMware Zimbra
 VMware Zimbra
is a collaboration hub for email, contacts, calendars, documents,
file sharing, tasks, social media and enterprise applications. VMware
Zimbra supports Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer on any
desktop or device, and works with Windows, Mac and Linux desktops.  
The compatibility and integration of Proofpoint solutions with the
VMware Zimbra platform provides users the ability to leverage the
following: 


 
--  Proofpoint Enterprise Archive is a market leading cloud-based service
    that works seamlessly with Zimbra to archive email, IM, and social
    media content in accordance with regionally specific retention
    requirements. Zimbra customers can manage legal hold and eDiscovery
    obligations through fully automated processes, with fast search
    performance uniquely backed by a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
--  In addition to the Proofpoint Enterprise Archive integration, the
    Proofpoint Enterprise Protection virtual appliance delivers
    best-in-class, inbound and outbound email security and management
    features in one cost-effective, easy-to-use solution. VMware Zimbra
    customers can protect their mission-critical email infrastructure from
    outside threats including spam, phishing, malware, unpredictable email
    volumes and other forms of objectionable or dangerous content before
    they hit the enterprise gateway.
--  The Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy virtual appliance suite provides
    "defense in depth" data loss prevention for all sorts of private
    information. It protects private information in email, defends against
    leaks of confidential information and assists VMware Zimbra customers
    with their compliance with common international, industry and US data
    protection regulations, such as HIPAA, GLBA and PCI-DSS.

  
Proofpoint suite of solutions allows Zimbra customers to track, manage,
and control important content, regardless of where it resides, by
proactively managing eDiscovery risk and costs from archived email to
files and documents living outside of managed repositories.
