Proofpoint Cloud App Security Broker Review

Very good quarantine feature with good stability and capability to scale easily

What is our primary use case?

On the cloud deployment model, we primarily use the program systems and on the on-premises deployment, we primarily use the partner and normal gateway.

What is most valuable?

The quarantine feature is the solution's most valuable aspect.

What needs improvement?

The TLS encryption needs to be improved. It's not state of the art.

The Proofpoint certification on the cloud also requires improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We're not expanding it at the moment, but I think it's very scalable. It's not too difficult to do so from my understanding. Currently we have about 50,000 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've never been in touch with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Cisco IronPort. For our organization, IronPort was out of date and we were also out of support at the end of the year.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We handled the implementation ourselves.

What other advice do I have?

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment model.

I would advise others considering the solution to make sure they have a good integration plan.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
