Security focused. SaaS inspired.
For eight years Proofpoint has focused exclusively on solving the unique challenges posed by enterprise email. Our best-of-breed solutions combine multiple innovative security features into a single platform with a three-part mission: Improve security and compliance. Minimize ongoing costs. Simplify the management of it all.
Because every enterprise is unique, flexibility defines Proofpoint solutions, deployments and support. We lead the way with SaaS-based email solutions, but also specialize in appliance, virtual appliance and unique hybrid deployments. And we back it all up with a commitment to customer service where exceptional is the rule.
Founded in the Spirit of Innovation
Eric Hahn, a pioneer in corporate messaging products and former CTO of Netscape, founded Proofpoint in June 2002. The company remains privately held and dedicated to the ideals of using innovative technology to make business work better.
