Proofpoint unveils innovations across its platforms to protect organisations from advanced threats, data loss, and risks. Its Threat Protection Platform features BEC defence, which prevents potential financial losses.
Proofpoint introduces innovations across its three flagship platforms: Threat Protection, Compliance, and the Information Protection and Cloud Security. Now available, Proofpoint’s Information Protection and Cloud Security Platform is said to be the market’s first cloud native solution that combines enterprise data loss prevention (DLP), insider threat management, cloud app security broker (CASB), zero trust network access, remote browser isolation, and a cloud native web security solution.
“People are unquestionably the new perimeter—especially as organisations embrace hybrid work and increasingly adopt cloud applications. Our people-centric enhancements fortify the human element against a heightened combination of advanced threats, data loss, and compliance risks,” says Proofpoint executive vice president for cybersecurity strategy Ryan Kalember.
Kalember claims: “Backed by Proofpoint’s machine learning NexusAI and trillions of data points across all the digital channels that matter, our intelligence is unmatched in the industry. We are committed to developing security innovations that protect people from today’s most damaging threats everywhere they work.”
Every day, Proofpoint says it analyses more than 2.2 billion email messages, 35 billion URLs, 200 million attachments, and 35 million cloud accounts. Today’s advancements span its Threat Protection, Compliance, and Information Protection and Cloud Security Platforms, including:
Information Protection and Cloud Security Platform
Proofpoint Web Security: Available starting at Protect 2021, this is Proofpoint’s new cloud native security solution that provides controls and isolation when end users are accessing the web. When combined with Proofpoint’s CASB, remote browser isolation, and Zero Trust Network access solutions, organisations are provided a new security access service edge (SASE) security architecture that can ensure access control coupled with threat and data protection for users accessing applications on the internet, cloud services, and private applications.
Managed Transition Services: Now available following the Intelisecure integration, this service provides organisations with a trusted partner, with deep experience in migration and decommissioning, as they replace their legacy DLP products with new innovations.
Threat Protection Platform innovations stop BEC and provide visibility
Proofpoint Threat Protection Platform’s Advanced BEC Defense, powered by Supernova: Proofpoint’s Advanced BEC Defence focuses on stopping attempted business email compromise (BEC) scams. This capability is powered by a completely new detection platform called Supernova. Leveraging inbound and outbound gateway telemetry, supply chain risk analytics, and API data from cloud productivity platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, it uncovers email fraud attacks, and is available to all Protection, TAP, and P bundle customers today at no additional charge.
Email fraud costs organisations nearly US$2 billion every year— the largest category of financial loss in cybersecurity, according to the recent FBI Internet Crime Report for multiple years running. After only one month of deployment, Advanced BEC Defence has already prevented hundreds of millions of dollars in potential losses from BEC attempts.
Proofpoint Threat Protection platform packages: Now available at three levels of functionality, Proofpoint’s Threat Protection platform provides protection against email and cloud threats, including ransomware, credential phishing, BEC, and more. Innovations such as Nexus People Risk Explorer are available for P0, P1, and P1+ customers, and Tap URL Isolation is available for all P1+ customers.
Security Awareness Training chief information security officer dashboard: Available in early Q3 2021, Proofpoint’s newest dashboard will provide CISOs with visibility into program performance and peer industry comparisons to positively affect people-centric change.
Compliance Platform provides machine learning innovation and advanced collection
NexusAI for Compliance: Announced last May 2021, Proofpoint NexusAI for Compliance uses machine learning innovation to solve compliance-related challenges and identifies compliance violations to save both time and material costs.
Proofpoint Content Capture Digest-based Data Collection and Storage: Available in early Q3 2021, Proofpoint’s Content Capture solution will feature digest-based data collection and digest-based storage and review in the Proofpoint Enterprise Archive. This innovation helps address pervasive data volume growth trends and enables digital communications content to be natively collected in full conversations—unified across channels and users’ identities—and not by independent chat messages. This functionality reduces review time-to-value while increasing accuracy in risk identification.
