Proofpoint is a leader! Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways, 2014

Gartner, Inc. positions Proofpoint in the Leaders Quadrant in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways.

According to Gartner, “The secure email gateway market is mature. Buyers should focus on strategic vendors, data loss prevention capability encryption and better protection from targeted phishing attacks.”

The Gartner report also details, “Better protection from targeted phishing attacks is the most critical inbound protection capability (98% of respondents indicated that this was an important or very important capability), but only a few vendors have advanced the state of the art against these attacks. Leading solutions are incorporating methods to double check – or better, proxy – URL links in email at the ‘time of click’ rather than the time of delivery (Figure 1).”
