"Today's certification underscores Proofpoint's continued commitment to expanding our industry-leading email security solutions to the Federal market and public sector," said Bhagwat Swaroop, executive vice president of Industry Solutions and Business Development for Proofpoint.

Proofpoint provides federal agencies with unparalleled visibility into customer-specific and employee-centered attack vectors necessary to defend against advanced attacks."
