Proofpoint Email Protection Room for Improvement

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. View full review »

The solution needs to better detect emails that don't have a malicious payload. They need to ensure those that have a link to a malicious Google Drive or something like that are captured. We find the cost to be prohibitive. Their smart search needs to be much more intuitive and flexible. View full review »

The search functionality is quite small. It could be a bit more in-depth. Right now, it's a bit simple. The solution could be improved with the addition of PLP and email encryption features. View full review »

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. Also, they are not able to scan multiple engines as McAfee does. I would like to see a feature included as an email security gateway the way that Symantec does. View full review »

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