    Proofpoint Launches People-Centric Enterprise Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Introduces Nexus People Risk Explorer

    Cybersecurity leader also enhances its CASB and BEC/EAC protection to reduce risk across all key channelsSUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced multiple new Proofpoint innovations to ensure that organizations worldwide have end-to-end protection around their people—wherever and however employees are working and collaborating. Available today, Proofpoint’s new people-centric Enterprise DLP solution helps organizations identify and quickly respond to data loss resulting from negligent, compromised, or malicious users. Proofpoint’s Nexus People Risk Explorer is also available, providing the industry’s first unified view of vulnerable, attacked, and privileged users. Each of these Proofpoint innovations provide a new people-centric security and compliance blueprint for email, cloud, and information protection. Key additional enhancements include Proofpoint’s Cloud App Security Broker (CASB) IaaS and DLP functionality along with new Proofpoint business email compromise (BEC) and email account compromise (EAC) imposter classification and remediation.“If it wasn’t clear before 2020, it certainly is now: people are the enterprise perimeter,” said Ryan Kalember, executive vice president of Cybersecurity Strategy for Proofpoint. “We put people at the center of our innovation roadmap, which has allowed us to break new ground in solving core cybersecurity challenges like DLP. Data doesn’t lose itself – there’s always a negligent, compromised, or malicious user involved – so a people-centric approach can succeed where prior solutions failed. Our latest innovations deliver necessary cloud-based protection across all major channels regardless of a user’s location, communication method or regulation requirements.”Proofpoint’s people-centric DLP, user visibility, CASB, and BEC/EAC innovations include: * People-centric Enterprise DLP Platform: This new people-centric DLP platform brings together the Proofpoint cloud, email, and endpoint DLP solutions. All content, user behavior, and threat telemetry are combined across channels in a new unified investigations interface to help organizations identify and respond quickly to data risks posed by negligent, compromised, and malicious users.   * Nexus People Risk Explorer: Available as a beta starting today, the new Proofpoint Nexus People Risk Explorer provides CISOs and strategic security leaders with a people-centric way to identify risky users, including the most attacked, most vulnerable, and most privileged users in an organization into a single view. Additionally, the tool provides actionable recommended risk mitigations, such as isolating URLs in the emails of users who are both very attacked and fail phishing simulations. The underlying risk model leverages machine learning and combines real-time Proofpoint Nexus threat telemetry across cloud (CASB), email, and security awareness training. This multi-trillion data point threat graph includes more than two billion daily emails, 13 million active cloud accounts, 86,000+ social media accounts, and 400,000-600,000 daily malware samples. * Proofpoint Cloud App Security Broker (Proofpoint CASB) IaaS and DLP functionality: Available this quarter, Proofpoint CASB will expand its infrastructure as a service (IaaS) resource and account protection, discovery, and governance, a capability often referred to as Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM). In addition, users can now monitor their cloud infrastructure for threats and detect DLP incidents for swift remediation. This is especially critical following Proofpoint’s recent discovery of a vulnerability in the implementation of cloud multi-factor authentication (MFA) that utilizes WS-Trust, which could allow attackers to bypass MFA and access cloud applications that use the protocol, notably Office 365. This research will be presented at the upcoming Proofpoint Protect virtual customer event on September 9, 2020.   * Enhanced Proofpoint Business Email Compromise (BEC) and Email Account Compromise (EAC) Protection: Available this quarter, Proofpoint Email Protection will feature a detailed imposter threat view with the ability to classify different BEC techniques including fake invoicing and payroll redirection. This enhanced visibility into BEC attempts will complement automatic quarantine and end user alerts. In Q4, Proofpoint customers will also have access to a new Supplier Risk Dashboard for additional insight into supplier invoicing fraud and supplier account compromise.For more information on Proofpoint’s latest people-centric solutions, please visit: https://www.proofpoint.com/us/solutions/full-people-centric-security.

    Proofpoint and CyberArk Extend Partnership to Further Safeguard High-Risk Users with People-Centric Protection

    The combined solutions allow organizations to contain and remediate attacks against privileged users and high-risk assets, favorite targets of today’s threat actorsSUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Proofpoint, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today announced it is extending its partnership with CyberArk, the global leader in privileged access management. The enhanced integration of Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection with CyberArk’s Privileged Access Security Solution enables organizations to identify their very attacked people (VAPs), apply additional security policies to their high-risk users with privileged access, and remediate phishing attempts. “Threat actors are exceptionally adept at targeting individuals with privileged access to extremely sensitive data—and organizations need the ability to seamlessly protect those users, across their ecosystem of security solutions,” said Bhagwat Swaroop, executive vice president of Industry Solutions and Business Development for Proofpoint. “Our CyberArk partnership extension provides security teams with increased detection and enhanced adaptive controls to help prevent today’s most severe threats. This is the latest example of our ongoing commitment to lasting partnerships with the industry’s leading security firms and to provide essential people-centric solutions to organizations worldwide.”The Proofpoint and CyberArk partnership features a combination of layered defenses designed to stop threats before they reach users and apply policies and controls that ensure privilege accuracy. Proofpoint prevents email attacks from accessing users and helps to identify the individuals that are targeted by the most sophisticated, highest impact threats. CyberArk takes this insight and applies adaptive controls and policies to ensure those privileged users are only able to access what they need and nothing more.“Privileged users are just as vulnerable to email-based cyber attacks as anyone in an organization, however the systems and environments they manage are so critical to the business that a breach can be devastating,” said Adam Bosnian, executive vice president of Global Business Development at CyberArk. “With Proofpoint Targeted Attack Prevention feeding information to CyberArk about ‘very attacked’ privileged users in an organization, we can immediately—and automatically—apply remediation measures to help stop targeted threats before they can reach their intended destination.”Organizations worldwide can now use a combination of Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) and CyberArk’s Privileged Access Security to: * Identify and Manage Privileged Access: Proofpoint TAP identifies VAPs within organizations and shares that information with CyberArk’s Privileged Access Security Solution to manage the access level of privileged users with a high level of threat severity.   * Revoke Privileged Access for Potentially Compromised Users: Proofpoint TAP identifies malicious links within emails, rewrites each URL, and provides click-time sandboxing for every user. TAP insights are then delivered to CyberArk detailing privileged users that have clicked on malicious links. CyberArk then provides real-time remediation to automatically disable certain features, restrict the user completely, or force a real-time password change.For more information on Proofpoint and CyberArk’s partnership, please visit: https://www.proofpoint.com/us/resources/solution-briefs/threat-response-integrates-cyberark-privileged-account-security.
