“Phishing attacks are an increasingly serious threat,” according to Peter Firstbrook, Research Vice President at Gartner and Neil Wynne, Service Analyst. “For the past two years, more than 65 percent of cyberespionage incidents have featured phishing. We see ample evidence that companies of all sizes and in all industries are targets of well-crafted phishing attacks. Better protection from targeted phishing attacks remains the most critical inbound protection capability.”

Proofpoint’s secure email gateway catches and stops cyberthreats hours or even days before traditional defenses. By combining world-class secure email gateway functionality with Targeted Attack Protection technology, Proofpoint defends users from sophisticated, targeted phishing attacks. Next-generation behavioral analysis and advanced malware sandboxing protect organizations in real time from dynamic and zero-day malware, weaponized attachments, malicious embedded URLs and other advanced exploits.
