Its anti-phishing functionality is the most valuable. Certainly, the biggest problem I have is phishing.

Proofpoint Email Protection Cons

Luis Brown

It has too many screens. It is kind of a conglomeration of products. In other words, they built product A, product B, and product C, and they are yet to integrate them into a single administrative console. I would certainly like to see a more seamless administrative interface. I would also like to see them include more bang for the buck, by including features like email fraud protection, rather than making their product so piecemeal, where you are buying little pieces. I agree with the idea of having multiple tiers or layers, but maybe as small, medium, and large, as opposed to an a la carte menu.

The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features.

They do not have an on-demand scan for the internal viruses and internal users, and they don't have a scan for the exchange server against viruses and spam as Symantec does.

Proofpoint should have better integration with complex environments that need more than one instance of Proofpoint, as there are issues with nested instances.
