Gartner recognition for Proofpoint E-mail security

ProofPoint : 16 September, 2008  (New Product)
Report from Gartner recognises the leading position of Proofpoint in the market for e-mail protection products
Proofpoint has been positioned by Gartner in the leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for E-mail Security Boundary" 2008 report.

"We consider our positioning in the leaders quadrant by Gartner as a great validation of Proofpoint's continued success in helping enterprises worldwide solve their most pressing email challenges—turning email from a liability into an asset," said Gary Steele, CEO of Proofpoint. "Our continued innovation and focus on email security, archiving and data loss prevention—combined with the ability to deliver those solutions either on-premises or on-demand—makes Proofpoint the ideal choice for organizations that want to make email more secure, compliant and easier to manage."

According to Gartner, the email security market is 'defined by vendors that provide enterprise protection against inbound e-mail threats, and fulfill outbound policy requirements at the SMTP gateway. The e-mail security market is estimated at $1.2 billion in 2007, growing at 30%. The strongest demand is for the appliance and SaaS delivery models. Gartner expects SaaS to represent 30% of the e-mail security market by year-end 2008."

Gartner also notes that, "The e-mail security market is one of the few security markets where all three delivery models (software, appliance, and SaaS or managed services) are available. Appliances and SaaS models are seeing the fastest growth, with more than 30% annual growth for many companies selling e-mail security appliances or services. Some companies are exploring, by accident or design, hybrid options, whereby a SaaS service is used to clean unwanted inbound e-mail for spam and viruses, and an on-premises solution is used for outbound content filtering and custom requirements. An emerging delivery model is the virtual appliance, which is especially attractive in the e-mail security world, because spam volumes and campaigns necessitate increased hardware investments."

Proofpoint provides a variety of email security solutions that help enterprises, universities, government organizations and ISPs improve the overall security, compliance and effectiveness of email. Proofpoint solutions defend against inbound spam and viruses, prevent leaks of confidential or private data, encrypt sensitive information, archive email and improve the manageability of messaging systems—all on a single, unified platform. Proofpoint offers customers the most flexible array of deployment options including on-demand/Software-as-a-Service, on-premises appliances (hardware or virtual) and software. Proofpoint also makes it easy to deploy solutions in a hybrid model that combines both on-premises and hosted features.

In addition to the anti-spam, anti-virus, connection management, email encryption and data loss prevention solutions for which Proofpoint is well known, the company has also recently introduced new solutions for email archiving and improving the usability of enterprise email systems:.

* Proofpoint Email Archiving is an on-demand email archiving solution that addresses three key challenges—email storage management, legal discovery and regulatory compliance—without the headaches of managing an email archive in-house. As a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, it can be deployed very quickly, with minimal upfront costs and planning. Because Proofpoint takes care of everything from storage to security issues, the archive can be easily managed by existing messaging IT staff. Proofpoint Email Archiving can be used by any enterprise that uses the Microsoft Exchange email server.

* Proofpoint Secure File Transfer lets end users send large files (or files that require enhanced security) quickly and easily—while minimizing the impact of large attachments on an organization's email infrastructure. Ideal for organizations in the healthcare, financial services, government and other sectors that need to send large files in an ad-hoc and secure manner, Proofpoint Secure File Transfer ensures minimum impact on senders, recipients, and IT.
