Proofpoint Solution The company’s integrated suite of on-demand security-as-a-service solutions enables large and mid-sized organizations to defend, protect, archive and govern their sensitive data. Its comprehensive platform provides threat protection, incident response, regulatory compliance, archiving, governance, eDiscovery, and secure communication. These solutions are built on a cloud-based architecture, protecting data not only as it flows into and out of the enterprise via on-premise and cloud-based email, instant messaging, social media and other Web-based applications, and also keeps track of this information as it is modified and distributed throughout the enterprise for compliance and data loss prevention and securely archiving these communications for compliance and discovery.

The company’s platform includes five solutions bundled for the convenience of its customers, distributors and resellers: Proofpoint Enterprise Protection, Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy, Proofpoint Enterprise Archive and Governance, Proofpoint Nexgate Social Media Security and Compliance, and Proofpoint Essentials.

Solutions Proofpoint Enterprise Protection Proofpoint Enterprise Protection is a communications and collaboration security suite designed to protect customers' mission-critical messaging infrastructure from outside threats including spam, phishing, unpredictable email volumes, malware and other forms of objectionable or dangerous content before they reach the enterprise. Main capabilities within Proofpoint Enterprise Protection include the following: Threat detection: Uses its Proofpoint MLX machine learning technology and reputation data to examine millions of possible attributes in every message, including envelope headers and structure, embedded Web links, images, attachments and sender reputation, as well as unstructured content in the message body, to block phishing and spear phishing attacks, spam and other forms of malicious or objectionable content. This solution also includes policy and routing controls designed to ensure security and the effective handling of all classifications of content. Virus protection: Combats email-borne viruses, worms and trojans with a solution that combines message handling, comprehensive reporting, and robust policy management with third-party antivirus scanning engines. Zero-hour threat detection: Protects enterprises against new phishing attacks, viruses and other forms of malicious code during the critical period after new attacks are released and before full information is available to characterize the threat. Smart search: Offers an interface that provides real-time visibility into message flows across an organization's messaging infrastructure, using built-in logging and reporting capabilities with advanced message tracing, forensics and log analysis capabilities. Targeted attack protection: Enterprises are protected against advanced persistent threats, such as phishing and other targeted email attacks by the use of big data analysis, predictive, virtual execution and dynamic malware analysis techniques to identify and apply additional security controls against suspicious messages and any associated links to the Web. Threat response: Provides threat information and Indicators of Compromise correlation, aggregating across Proofpoint and other third-party security products, to confirm and contain system compromises.
