Proofpoint differentiates itself from the competition in five key areas:

1. Intelligence
Proofpoint continues to invest in R&D to innovate on an intelligent compliance solution to help serve the current and future needs of its customers. We deliver intelligence through innovations in automation, visualization and detection. With Proofpoint NexusAI for Compliance, you can use out-of-box machine learning models to automate significantly reducing false positives (low-risk supervisory content) by up to 65 percent when compared with legacy solutions.

2. Extensibility
Proofpoint supports capturing, managing, retaining, supervising and discovering content from an extensive set of data sources, including email, social media, collaboration platforms and text. We often work with open APIs and frameworks to enable integration with leading technology partners for data capture, downstream e-discovery and other applications.

3. Performance
Proofpoint offers a financially backed SLA for (1) archive search performance that sees results returned in seconds on average, regardless of size of archive, and (2) archiving hosted service availability.

4. User Experience
Proofpoint provides a unified user experience for archiving customers. Access to specific functionality is easily provisioned based on role – from end user to legal user to compliance user to admin – in a single pane of glass. Our customers often cite “ease of use” heavily influenced their decision to go with Proofpoint.

5. Security and Compliance
Proofpoint uses standards-based encryption technology to protect customer data from point of capture to retention in the archive. Our unique DoubleBlind technology enables you to search and view archived information without having to first decrypt it. Our fully managed service has SSAE-18 SOC 2 Type II certification, not just for our physical facilities, but also for the service itself. And for U.S. Federal customers, Proofpoint Enterprise Archive is offered as a FedRAMP Authorized, SaaS level, Moderate impact cloud service.
