"Proofpoint's email protection solutions are deployed and operated entirely as a cloud service. Its Security-as-a-Service platform includes email security, advanced threat protection, cloud access security broker (CASB), digital risk protection, information protection, archiving, and security awareness training," said Tony Massimini, Cybersecurity Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "The company's organic and inorganic portfolio expansion strategies have enhanced its email security solution through improved integration with other security solutions. Consequently, Proofpoint has been the market leader in email security since 2015, outpacing the overall email security market and gaining 2.3 percentage points of market share in 2017."

Proofpoint serves more than 50 percent of the Fortune 1000. Every day, it detects and blocks advanced threats and compliance risks in more than 600 million emails, more than 7 million mobile apps, and hundreds of thousands of social-media accounts.

With the email threat landscape becoming more complex and attacks becoming more personalised, Proofpoint has adopted a people-centric security approach. The company enables IT and security teams to identify their very attacked people (VAPs) and the ways in which they are attacked, as well as presenting the threat and attack data needed to protect those people.

Significantly, Proofpoint made several key acquisitions over the last two years, which include Wombat Security Technologies, Inc., a leader in phishing simulation and security awareness computer-based training; and Cloudmark Inc., a leader in messaging security and threat intelligence for Internet service providers (ISPs) and mobile carriers. Its other prominent acquisitions include Weblife.io, a leader in browser isolation solutions; FireLayers, an innovator in cloud security; and Return Path's Email Fraud Protection (EFP) business unit.

"Proofpoint's suite can be deployed as a secure cloud-only solution, or as a hybrid solution with optional physical or virtual points-of-presence," noted Massimini. "By delivering quality services cost-effectively, ensuring compliance, and maintaining the flexibility to optimise deployments for a customer's unique environment, Proofpoint has emerged as the cybersecurity solution provider of choice, globally."
