Proofpoint and Pentesec: Protecting People, Together

Protection against cyber threats doesn’t need to start with technology. It doesn’t have to start with cutting-edge tools or expensive IT infrastructure either. It starts with your people.

You might know your VIPs (Very Important People) but do you know your VAPs (Very Attacked People)? They could be any one of your employees. Because, no matter how well your IT infrastructure is being managed, you can’t patch your way out of attacks that target human nature.

In today’s ever-evolving landscape, it’s critical that you obtain control, protection, and visibility of your greatest asset and biggest security risk – your people.

With the flexibility to customise security policies and mail routing rules at a global, group and user level, Proofpoint’s Email Protection and Security solutions are deployed by most of the Fortune 1000 and offers a solution that scales for the largest enterprises supporting cloud, on-premises and hybrid installations.

Proofpoint’s solutions deliver industry-leading SLAs when deployed in the cloud offering:

Targeted Attack Protection

More than 90% of targeted attacks start with email—and these threats are always evolving. Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) helps you stay ahead of attackers with an innovative approach that detects, analyses and blocks advanced threats before they reach your inbox. This includes ransomware and other advanced email threats delivered through malicious attachments and URLs. And zero-day threats, polymorphic malware, weaponized documents and phishing attacks. TAP provides adaptive controls to isolate the riskiest URL clicks. TAP also detects threats and risks in cloud apps, connecting email attacks related to credential theft or other attack.
