Proofpoint is the best option for MSPs and VARs looking for an email security solution for their customers. It’s combines strong security, simplified management and a number of partner advantages that put it far ahead of the competition. Here are a few of the reasons that Proofpoint Essentials is the best email security option for MSPs and VARs:



No security or anti-virus vendor stops viruses or other email threats better than Proofpoint. Their anti-virus engines are highly accurate, effective and fast. They block all known viruses and heuristic scanning protects against never before seen viruses for added security.


Proofpoint’s spam and phishing technology efficiently analyses hundreds of attributes in every email. This advanced scanning accurately filters emails by examining envelope headers and structure, content, email sender reputation, images and more, to prevent spam emails, malware, other malicious email and attachment-based spam from reaching inboxes.

Outbound Filtering

Outbound filtering ensures all email sent through the Essentials platform is free from viruses, malware and other malicious content. This protects against emails that could damage your customers’ reputation, or the security of email recipients. It also protects SMEs from legal issues.

Content Filtering

Proofpoint Essentials’ intelligent Content Filter enables organization to use a flexible rules engine to enforce email communications policies. This provides advanced security for organizations against email-borne threats.

URL Defence

Proofpoint provides the industry’s most effective defence against advanced threats, blocking malicious URLs. This minimizes clean-up for incident response teams by catching malicious URLs before users click and get infected.

Email Encryption

Proofpoint provides protection against the negative impacts of data loss by automatically encrypting emails. This is ideal for any organization that needs to protect sensitive data, while making it readily available to appropriate users. In addition, all encrypted emails are removed after 15 days to further protect users data.


Emergency Inbox

With the Essentials Instant Replay feature, end users can easily replay successfully delivered emails received in the last 30-days that may have been wrongly deleted or accidentally removed from servers. This means that users can replay the delivery of any inbound email in the past 30-days and it allows administrators to provide a self-service option to any user who needs to recover individual emails. It ensures that all email is received during an email outage and properly backed up when service is restored.

Instant Replay

End users can replay the delivery of inbound emails in the past 30 days, without the need for administrator access. Instant Replay also covers server failures, meaning that no emails are lost during outages.

Email Archiving

Eliminate data storage constraints and meet legal and regulatory obligations with Proofpoint Essential’s 10-year cloud archive, which ensures SMEs stay protected and compliant. Proofpoint archives all inbound, outbound and internal messages received by and sent from your Microsoft exchange server or Office 365 account. This feature protects the email metadata, ensuring that all mail is actually archived at the point of origin and final destination.

Partner Benefits

Multi-Level Logins

Proofpoint’s ‘Essentials Interface’ allows administrators a customisable level of control over account settings, in the form of multi-level logins. This means that individual users can manage their own account, while still maintaining security. This also helps to save MSPs and VARs time, as they do not have to help clients manage individual user settings.

Domain Managment

With Proofpoint Essentials, unlimited domains can be managed under one organisation account, either individually or as part of a group. The portal is modern and accessible, and allows MSPs and Resellers to manage all their customers, with ease.

Active Directory Sync
