Peace of Mind with ProofPoint Essentials

My overall experience is very good. The software simply does what it promises to do very well. We use it for email protection.

PROS

ProofPoint Essentials provides a complete line of email protection tools, such as simple spam protection, phishing protection, URL and attachment sandboxing, encryption, emergency inbox and archival. It is extremely effective and very little malicious email gets through. The daily digest reassures end users that they are not missing important emails.

CONS

The setup is a bit complex and requires at least one hour per installation, with MX record changes, transport rules, and setting up the profile. The provided PowerShell scripts for Office 365 help, but it still takes longer than I would like.

Reason for choosing Proofpoint Email Protection

Proofpoint Essentials provided all of my email protection needs in one package, allowing me to manage everything centrally.

PROOFPOINT , BETTER WAY TO PROTECT YOUR FORM FROM SPAMS AND PHISHING.

Ido like the power of the software to protect the endpoints from spam mails and phishing attack, but i recommend the UI to be little more user friendly.

PROS

Much better in terms of Spam detection and also link protection , It will scan any links in our incoming mail and check whether it's genuine. Earlier we were using Trend micro email security and i find proof point much better in terms of spam detection and protecting the endpoints form clicking on unwanted links in the mails. Since its a cloud product the loading time of the interface may take some time , at times i find the UI very run responsive but that will not be a issue as it will be temporary for some minutes

CONS

I can't say it as a demerit but what i dislike the most with proof point is that for quarantined mails bulk delete option is shown and sometimes some bulk mails getting listed in the quarantined folder needs to be deleted one by one. like if am getting multiple spam mails from a single mail id i should be given the option to deleted the same . But for our convenience they have given an option to hide those types.

Reason for choosing Proofpoint Email Protection

I found this as the best in terms of spam protection and finding phishing attacks and also the ability to check each and every links in the email.

Reasons for switching to Proofpoint Email Protection

Because of a phishing attack and trend micro was not able to quarantine the spam mails.

Frustrating and not worth it

PROS

It groups together the spam messages into easy to read digest and the settings, once you figure them out, allow for nice customizability

CONS

So hard to configure and the default settings are abysmal. I get spammed more often from proofpoint than I do actual spam. Approving / blocking / etc. options are not intuitive and don't do what you expect them to. Also really difficult to figure out all the settings to get the system to actual help filter out unwanted messages.
