Proofpoint Essentials
for Microsoft Office 365

Advanced security for small and medium-sized businesses.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud-based email and collaboration platform. But you may need more advanced security capabilities beyond what’s available.

Proofpoint Essentials provides small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with an additional layer of security. It protects your people while they fully leverage Office 365 business applications.

  • Multi-Layered Protection

Essentials provides the same enterprise-class security and visibility used by some of the world’s largest security-minded organisations. Now you can get the same protection for your biggest security risk— your people.

  • Advanced Threat Protection

Most attacks target people. They entice them to click on a link in an email or open an attachment. We leverage the advanced power of Targeted Attack Protection, our industry-leading email analysis solution, to protect your people.

  • Email Continuity

Keep your teams productive for longer, and drastically cut the potential for theft or equipment damage.

  • Secure Email Communications

Securing emails that contain sensitive data is one of your top priorities. No one wants to face nes, bad press and loss of customer trust for losing con dential data or customer information.

  • Social Media Account Protection

We can help you with social media account protection and compliance for up to three branded social media accounts. You can choose from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+.

  • Email Archiving

Proofpoint makes use of the Microsoft Exchange journaling function, enabling you to securely store all internal and external email for up to 10 years.

  • Defending Against Targeted Attacks

Microsoft provides basic email security features with Microsoft Exchange Online Protection (EOP). It relies on traditional ltering techniques like IP reputation, volume and signature-based anti-virus scans for its email hygiene services. But you need more to protect your people against today’s targeted threats, especially since email is the most reliable way for threats to reach your users. More than 90 percent of targeted attacks start with email. And 99 percent of threats rely on users to run malicious code.

  • How Does Proofpoint Essentials Work with Microsoft Office 365?

Getting set up on Essentials for Office 365 is simple and intuitive. You deploy Essentials between the Office 365 environment and the Internet. To route inbound mail to Proofpoint Essentials, you start by changing your MX records. After email is processed by Essentials, it is routed to Office 365. Since Proofpoint sits in front of Office 365, the Proofpoint emergency inbox is activated instantly and automatically when it detects an Office 365 email service outage.
