“Organizations in Japan need a safe and efficient way to identify cyberattack attempts, prioritize the most critical alerts and stop cybercriminals as soon as possible,” said Lorne Fetzek, managing director, Japan for Proofpoint. “Our Threat Response and ET Intelligence solutions provide organizations with the most effective and accelerated attack protection in the industry. By providing situational awareness and insight about threats targeting an organization, and orchestrating that integrated insight with multiple response actions, we help organizations quickly stop data loss and lateral attack movement.”

Proofpoint ET Intelligence features one of the world’s largest malware exchanges and an automated collection/analysis system, along with a team of expert threat researchers, to produce up-to-the-minute actionable threat intelligence for detecting, blocking and mitigating advanced cyberattacks. The combined Proofpoint technology provides organizations in Japan with deeper threat insight, enabling them to react faster to inbound cyberattacks, stop undetected malware already embedded in their organizations, and take proactive action.

ET Intelligence systems gather millions of malware samples and other global threat indicators every day to develop intelligence about advanced cybercriminal malware distribution and command and control (C&C) infrastructure. This intelligence can be fed directly into Proofpoint Threat Response, SIEMs, and threat intelligence platforms to help organizations stop today’s most sophisticated cyberattacks.

Proofpoint Threat Response features industry-first capabilities that automate and accelerate cyberattack incident response with users reporting up to 20X improvements in threat containment times. The solution features security alert prioritization based on applied internal and external intelligence, campaign data, forensic collection and endpoint verification. It also allows security teams to neutralize local and external hosts, privileged user identities, and malicious emails.

Threat Response Auto-Pull automatically quarantines delivered email messages, once identified as malicious, and updates existing security infrastructure that inspects user traffic, such as firewalls and web proxies, with detected threat information. Out-of-the-box, Proofpoint Threat Response integrations preserve and leverage existing security infrastructure with rapid connection to Cisco, FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, Splunk, CyberArk, and Imperva in addition to Proofpoint products.
