Proofpoint Launches Suite of Protection and Compliance Products for Office 365

New Proofpoint Suite Extends Office 365 With Advanced Threat Protection, Global Compliance and Comprehensive eDiscovery

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Proofpoint, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading security-as-a-service provider and Microsoft Gold Independent Software Vendor, today announced the availability of the Proofpoint Security and Compliance Suite for Office 365. The new Proofpoint cloud-based suite provides essential advanced threat protection, global regulatory compliance and comprehensive eDiscovery capabilities for organizations migrating to Microsoft® Office 365™.

"Enterprises moving to Microsoft Office 365 need to adequately protect themselves with third-party advanced threat protection and compliance capabilities," said Michael Osterman, Principal Analyst with Osterman Research. "Proofpoint has a proven track record of stopping advanced attacks and meeting complex global regulations. Using the same third-party vendor for threat protection and compliance measures really makes sense."

As attackers launch more sophisticated campaigns, and regulations and litigation multiply, enterprise risk exposure is increasing rapidly. The Proofpoint Security and Compliance Suite for Office 365 is designed to reduce risk across three crucial areas of exposure:

  • Advanced Threat Protection: Proofpoint Enterprise Protection™ and Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection™ complement Microsoft Office 365 email security measures by protecting high value data from targeted spear-phishing attacks and zero-day malware. Proofpoint employs a range of advanced threat detection technology, including dynamic malware analysis and big-data analytics, to defeat advanced threats and targeted attacks that bypass traditional anti-spam solutions.

  • Global Compliance: Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy™ provides global regulatory compliance functionality that automatically and accurately identifies a wide range of sensitive data including credit card numbers, government IDs and health care records. This allows administrators to easily secure communications and comply with compliance regulations including HIPAA, GLBA and PCI based on a central policy. Proofpoint also extends the capability of Microsoft Office 365 to meet rigorous enterprise-class data retention regulations, including those specified by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

  • Comprehensive eDiscovery: Proofpoint Enterprise Archive™ enhances legal discovery with rapid search insight, legal hold capabilities and granular retention policies. Enterprises have the flexibility to segregate legal holds by both group and geography, and can prevent end users from deleting sensitive data. Proofpoint eDiscovery also covers social network content and non-Microsoft document types.

"Advanced phishing attacks and continued data loss have made email the number one threat vector and compliance concern facing most enterprises," said David Knight, EVP and general manager for information security products at Proofpoint. "The new Proofpoint Security and Compliance Suite for Microsoft Office 365 provides the additional layer of advanced threat protection and compliance functionality that enterprises running on Office 365 need to stop phishing attacks and comply with global regulations. This enables organizations of all sizes to take full advantage of the benefits of Office 365 without sacrificing security or compliance."

This week, Microsoft Partner Conference attendees can visit Proofpoint booth #632 for details on the new Proofpoint suite. For additional information on the Proofpoint Security and Compliance Suite for Office 365, please visit
