Proofpoint’s Email Protection solution secures both inbound and outbound emails and uses advanced machine learning algorithms to block malicious emails. Its fine-grained email settings give you complete control over the security of your emails. It also efficiently identifies known and unknown threats, including payment redirect fraud, supplier invoicing fraud, and more. You’ll be amazed at how much information Proofpoint can protect your email system from. Here are a few of its best features:
Cloud-based SMTP relay product
SMTP relays are used for sending messages between different domains, such as those of your own. There are several options for setting up and maintaining these services. Some ISPs also provide an SMTP relay service for their customers. These services can help you connect your email service with your business domain. There are other cloud-based solutions available, too, that make it easy to connect your domain with your email service.
While a managed SMTP service can help you manage your emails from a single location, other enterprises choose to install their own SMTP relay software. These products are designed to work on all kinds of devices, and they integrate with the platform of your choice. To choose the most appropriate SMTP server, you can also use software that provides a list of outbound SMTP servers. Finding the best SMTP server can be tricky, so a managed SMTP service can help you choose the most suitable SMTP server for your needs.
Detects and blocks spammers
An email security system that detects and blocks spammers is crucial to the protection of your inbox from unwanted messages. The system can block messages sent from questionable IP addresses, and it can apply Spam Confidence Levels to domains and user groups. Such an approach allows you to segment your email environment, so you can control which entry points are susceptible to spam. This way, you can better protect your inbox from spammers while still maintaining an open and honest relationship with customers and business partners.
Spam module rules allow administrators to create a repository of impostor targets. Spam detection services like Proofpoint’s MLX Engine help you identify spammers by analyzing all aspects of incoming messages, including the sender’s IP address, message headers, and content. Proofpoint MLX Engine is capable of applying thousands of tests to each message, giving it the power to perform an individualized analysis. The software also receives frequent updates, so users can manually check for any changes or new rules.
Provides multi-password support
An Email security system is crucial for your organization, as email is an essential part of your daily routine. But it is equally important to keep your email protected from email threats. To ensure maximum security, you should not send sensitive information over email unless it is intended for the recipient. To prevent the loss of sensitive information, you should set up VPN access for your corporate email accounts and do not use your personal device to log in to the company account while connected to public WiFi hotspots.
Multi-factor authentication helps keep your email accounts secure because it makes it more difficult for hackers to access your email account. A multi-factor authentication system asks for a third piece of information at the time of login, such as a security question or a PIN code sent to a mobile device. Many cloud-based email servers offer this option, and it can make your account much more secure. The best email security system supports two-factor authentication, or 2FA.
Exports data to SIEM
The first step in exporting data from an Email Security System to a SIEM is to install the Export database job in your security system. This job connects with a SIEM host and downloads the selected data. It tracks the data exported and the last export date. The exporter will export data in a number of formats. All export types are supported, including JSON, CEF, and Syslog.
The SIEM integration script is available as a sample. You should enable the export job by ensuring that the user has “Log Export” permission. Note that you do not need the ability to log in to the Forcepoint portal to run this script. You must also make sure that the library files are stored in the same folder as the configuration file. If you create multiple export profiles, they can run one after another, one after the other.
