Proofpoint is the main tool for blocking spam because it denies the connection altogether.

I like all the features with Proofpoint, such as how it filters the spam and marketing mail, lost reality mail, blocks phishing attacks, blocks malicious attachments, and stops phishing links. Also it can defend against the business email compromise impersonation technique. It is a complete solution for all email attacks. It filters for the bad, malicious attachments. If there is any executable file, it can be deleted. It is a good, complete solution.

Its anti-phishing functionality is the most valuable. Certainly, the biggest problem I have is phishing.

Proofpoint Email Protection Cons

The Secure Mail aspect should have an Outlook add-in, instead of an external dashboard that outside users have to access.

It's scalable, but the devil's in the details — you have to know your email volumes.

The reporting section could be enhanced. I like some reports but if they could allow us to create custom reports with more flexibility it would enhance the reports more.

Integration for reporting needs to be improved, it's too complex.

It has too many screens. It is kind of a conglomeration of products. In other words, they built product A, product B, and product C, and they are yet to integrate them into a single administrative console. I would certainly like to see a more seamless administrative interface. I would also like to see them include more bang for the buck, by including features like email fraud protection, rather than making their product so piecemeal, where you are buying little pieces. I agree with the idea of having multiple tiers or layers, but maybe as small, medium, and large, as opposed to an a la carte menu.

The incident reporting on offer needs to be improved. It's lacking right now. It should be on the platform somewhere.

The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features.

The largest complaint that we hear from our customers is that there is no local support.
