Abnormal Security vs. Proofpoint

Abnormal’s innovative email security solution catches more attacks and is easier to use than Proofpoint.
Protect More

Proofpoint is the Past and Abnormal is the Future

  • Proofpoint’s secure email gateway was not built for cloud email. It targets high-volume, low-impact email attacks with known IOCs and misses new attacks like BEC and vendor email compromise.
  • Its architecture lacks visibility and protection against lateral phishing attacks and does not protect collaboration apps, forcing analysts to juggle multiple portals and end-point solutions.
  • Abnormal’s API approach is built specifically for cloud email to identify modern attacks, block them from reaching end users, and automate remediation.
I received an email from Abnormal on a Sunday about a compromised employee email account. With Proofpoint, I would have had to grab a computer and spend hours manually remediating. But Abnormal had already logged out and disabled the user’s account, reset the account password, and pulled the phishing emails from the recipients’ mailboxes. I was very pleased.”

Augment the Email Security You Already Pay For

  • Proofpoint’s secure email gateway forces organizations to disable native email security from Microsoft or Google. Customers end up paying twice for security features—once from their email provider and again from Proofpoint.
  • Abnormal eliminates this redundancy, complementing your cloud email provider. Due to advances in the security features provided by Microsoft and Google, native platforms now provide the same level of protection as Proofpoint.
