Gartner Email Security 2011 Magic Quadrant

We’re pleased today Proofpoint, an industry leader in security and compliance solutions for enterprise messaging, announced they’ve integrated their Enterprise Protection™ and Enterprise Privacy™ solutions with VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server v7 .  This integration offers Zimbra customers access to advanced anti-spam, regulatory compliance, email encryption and data loss prevention capabilities.
Proofpoint worked with the Zimbra team to custom-engineer the integration of its solutions to provide users with maximum protection.  Features include:

  • An virtual appliance with machine learning technology that delivers 99.8%+ anti-spam effectiveness against all types of spam and phishing attacks
  • Direct integration within the Zimbra UI- users may mark messages “spam” or “not spam” and the feedback provides additional tuning to the Proofpoint service in real-time
  • Securely send encrypted messages within Zimbra through a Proofpoint Zimlet extension (available in Zimbra 7.1.3)
  • Administrators may enable robust outbound filtering in Zimbra on messages for data loss prevention and privacy compliance

Special Introductory Offers

As part of the launch, Proofpoint is offering qualified Zimbra Network Edition customers a free one-year subscription to its Proofpoint Enterprise Protection virtual appliance.

The Proofpoint team is also offering new Zimbra customers a free 60-day trial to its Enterprise Privacy virtual appliance.
