In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• Across industries, many customers work with trusted partners with whom they share sensitive data. Most partners require strong controls and protections for that shared data. The more partners they can attract, the more successful customers are. Proofpoint’s reputation in this market enables customers to provide assurance that partner data is protected against unwanted data exposure, notably across email, cloud, and data at rest.

• Proofpoint’s solution helps financial services firms, healthcare organizations, retail companies, and other regulated industries protect their sensitive data and comply with complex industry rules. No other company gives organizations as much visibility and control over the compliance risks that matter most.

• To drive revenue streams distinct from their competition, businesses are using social media. In financial services, regulated users such as broker-dealers experience new ways to acquire revenue streams by using Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. At the same time, FINRA and bodies conducts spot checks to ensure organizations monitor, audit, and act if it detects compliance violations in these communications. Proofpoint helps organizations achieve new revenue streams, enables reports to streamline audit checks, and scales compliance teams as the breadth of communication channels and regulated users grow.
