Proofpoint has been crowned winner of a prestigious SC Media Europe Award at the June 5, 2018 ceremony at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, London.

The judges are drawn from the senior ranks of the information security industry from a wide range of industry sectors including banking, retail, insurance, airline groups, government department and food groups.

Additionally, Proofpoint collected three ‘Highly Commended’ Awards on the night in the categories: Best Email Security Solution – For Proofpoint Email Protection, Best Cloud Computing Solution – For Proofpoint Cloud App Security Broker, and Best Enterprise Security Solution for Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection. The firm’s tally of awards was greater than any other cybersecurity firm on the night.
