Navisite today announced it is partnering with Proofpoint, a cybersecurity company, to offer Proofpoint’s cloud-based enterprise-class email security and continuity as part of Navisite’s Managed Office 365 services.
By bundling Proofpoint Essentials advanced threat detection technology, Navisite includes a 99.999 per cent SLA for Office 365.
“Proofpoint Email Protection managed through Navisite will provide the National Theatre the assurance that our messaging environment is safe, secure and protected,” said Jon Cheyne, IT Director, National Theatre. “The need for this today is greater than ever before, as the risks to our data and systems via messaging platforms increase daily.”
Key Proofpoint features include:
•Advanced Inbound/Outbound Email Protection: Stops targeted email attacks containing malicious links and attachments, while preventing spam, viruses, malware, phishing attacks and more.
•Email Data Loss Prevention: Controls sensitive data from leaving the organisation by enforcing data security policies and preventing inadvertent data loss with Navisite’s managed Proofpoint e-Discovery and email archiving solutions.
•Assured Business Continuity: Ensures vital email communications are available at all times with automatic failover and recovery. Users stay connected to email via Outlook integration, a web portal, or mobile support should Microsoft Office 365 go offline.
“Through our collaboration with Proofpoint, we are offering our clients advanced threat protection and security management capabilities, enabling them to better control their IT environment with greater resiliency against malware, ransomware and phishing threats,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, general manager and group vice president, Navisite. “As cloud becomes more mainstream and managed services like Office 365 are commonplace, data security remains a top concern for our clients. That is why we are partnering with Proofpoint to deliver solutions that monitor, detect and protect a client’s most valuable data against the most sophisticated attackers.”
“Organisations worldwide are moving to Microsoft Office 365 with Navisite and our collaboration provides vital email safeguards against advanced threats and targeted attacks,” said Bhagwat Swaroop, executive vice president and general manager of Email Security for Proofpoint. “We stop 99.9 per cent of all targeted attacks before they reach Proofpoint users with our advanced cloud-based threat detection. That success rate, coupled with threat insights to identify attacks and the assurance of email service availability, puts control back into IT hands.”
