Executive Summary

Enterprises today are exposed to an ever-broadening range of IT security threats, from basic annoyances such as auto-emailed viruses, to targeted phishing-style attacks that trick employees into clicking on dangerous links that install malware, steal credentials, or in some other way jeopardize the security of the enterprise.

As threats have evolved over time, new approaches to threat detection and remediation have become necessary for organizations that are at risk. Proofpoint's security-as-a-service platform applies Big Data analysis techniques to deliver comprehensive security against even the most elusive inbound threats, such as phishing attacks designed to steal corporate data.
