Proofpoint Essentials Security Awareness

Proofpoint Essentials Security Awareness helps you deliver the right SMB specific training to the right people at the right time, turning your end users into a strong last line of defense to identify cyberattacks and protect your organization.

With more than 90% of breaches targeting users, educated employees are critical to protecting your organization. While technologies that detect and block malicious content are part of the solution, you can also reduce the likelihood of successful attacks such as phishing or business email compromise through a comprehensive, targeted security awareness training program. Designed specifically to address the needs of SMBs, Proofpoint Essentials Security Awareness helps change employee behavior, and reduce your organization’s exposure.


The key benefits of Proofpoint Essentials Security Awareness include

  • Changing users’ behavior to reduce risks from phishing and other cyberattacks
  • Providing consistent training designed specifically for SMBs with multilanguage support
  • Tracking results and progress with dynamic reporting
  • Reducing successful phishing attacks and malware infections by up to 90%


Industry research has shown that once-a-year classroom training is not effective in the battle against cyberattacks. Proofpoint’s unique Continuous Training Methodology is a cyclical approach that teaches users about best practices and how to employ them when facing security threats.

A continuous cycle of assessment, education, reinforcement, and measurement maximizes learning and lengthens retention. Their methodology sits in strong contrast to a “one and done” approach, giving you the flexibility to evolve your program over time, identify areas of susceptibility, and deliver targeted training when and where it’s most needed.
