More than 90% of targeted attacks start with email, and these security threats are always evolving. Spam, malware and extortion attempts are extremely easy to set up and dispatch to large numbers of people simultaneously.
The potential for users to make mistakes and fall victim to an attack is considerably higher than most other cyber threats, and the fallout can be very expensive.
Proofpoint Email Security
Proofpoint’s Email Protection solution stops malware and non-malware threats such as impostor email or email fraud. Deployed as a cloud service or on-premises, their secure email service provides granular email filtering to control unwanted emails.
Email Authentication detects, blocks and responds to threats before they reach your mailbox and eliminates phishing attacks that spoof trusted domains. This ensures mail senders are who they purport to be, enabling businesses to trust their communications.
Email Data Loss Prevention
Proofpoint’s Data Loss Prevention mitigates the risk of data loss and protects against accidental or malicious outbound communications; with over 80 fine tuned policies that automatically find, classify and block messages; greatly reducing the risk of sending sensitive data.
Email Fraud Defence
Fraud Defence provides full email visibility across the ecosystem so users can account for and authenticate every email entering or leaving their organisation. Fraud Defence analyses and interprets DMARC reports and enriches them with robust message samples. This 360-degree visibility helps users to authorise all legitimate emails sent on your organisation’s behalf and block fraudulent messages before they reach the inbox.
Proofpoint Domain Discover
‘Domain Discover for Email’ analyses over 300 million registered domains daily to identify lookalike domains that might be used to target end-users with email spoofing. With in-depth analysis, they provide accurate intelligence about the subdomains and URLs that pose a risk to your organisation.
