Why purchase yet another point solution? Proofpoint’s unified email security and data
loss prevention platform provides comprehensive protection against both inbound
threats and outbound content security risks—and Proofpoint’s modular architecture lets
you easily deploy new defenses as your needs change.
All Proofpoint features—including anti-spam, anti-virus, multi-protocol content security,
policy-based encryption and reporting features—are managed centrally from a single
administrative GUI and deployed on a unified appliance architecture. Features can be
deployed in nearly any configuration, to meet your organization’s unique requirements.
Whether your deployment involves a single Proofpoint server or multiple, globally dis-
tributed appliances, all policy management and administration tasks are controlled via
Proofpoint’s centralized, web-based administration console.
