Proofpoint Launches Nexgate Social Media Threat Center

Proofpoint, Inc. announced the availability of the Nexgate Social Threat Center, a real-time social media security operations console that aggregates security intelligence across social accounts and social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, etc.). Backed by the social media security database and five patent-pending social media security technologies, Nexgate Social Threat Center quickly identifies the myriad of social threats that brands face and measures the effectiveness of existing security policies. The Social Threat Center prioritizes risk and allows teams to take immediate protection action where it matters most. Once threats are identified, the Social Threat Center divides social media threats by specific risk type and category including suspicious social accounts, bad actors, malicious content, hacking risk, compliance risk, application control and abusive content. In addition, the Social Threat Center tracks and measures the effectiveness and ROI of the social media security policies used by an organization. No other solution matches this breadth of visibility, protection and security effectiveness measurement.
