Brief Overview

Proofpoint Digital Risk Protection provides a unified solution to protect against security, brand, and compliance risks across the web, mobile, and social media. It’s the only solution that provides a holistic defense for all digital engagement channels.

Digital Risk Protection allows organizations to centrally discover, audit, and protect its social media presence. With the solution, organizations can:

• Discover their brand’s presence with just a few clicks
• Identify fraudulent social accounts imitating key executives and brand
• Detect account takeovers and lock down compromised accounts
• Remove security-risk and malicious content from accounts
• Control connected third-party applications
• Prevent phishing attempts that steal your customers’ credentials

Digital Risk Protection secures brand accounts from takeover attempts in real time by continuously monitoring for changes in account profiles and looking for publishing patterns that indicate that an account has been hacked. Proofpoint will automatically remove unsanctioned content or lock down an account if account tampering has been detected. Organizations can easily designate approved account configurations, including authorized owners, images, credentials, and third-party applications.

Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, Proofpoint analyzes a vast body of domain data to uncover infringing domains that pose a risk to an organization’s brand and customers. Proofpoint also ensures that brand-owned domains remain secure by monitoring and notifying organizations when domain registrations and SSL certifications are about to expire.

According to Proofpoint research, nearly one-fourth of domains imitating corporate brands also have active MX records. Digital Risk Protection provides superior security against these potential phishing attacks. It notifies organizations when a lookalike brand domain is sent as a malicious URL in email attacks and it identifies fraudulent domains that are used in email fraud attacks seen by Proofpoint’s Email Fraud Defense solution. This helps organizations discover security-risk emails sent to employees and customers.
