"Proofpoint, Inc. (NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading security-as-a-service provider, has won the CSO New Technology Demo award. The award, which was presented at CSO's Security Confab Conference in La Jolla, California in April, recognized Proofpoint Enterprise Governance solution demonstration as one of the best at the conference.
Introduced in January 2012, the Proofpoint Enterprise Governance solution allows organizations to easily track, classify, apply policies and monitor unstructured information across the enterprise using patented Digital Thread technology. The winning demonstration showed how Proofpoint Enterprise Governance integrates into Proofpoint's Privacy (Data Loss Prevention) solution, whereby documents identified in the Privacy solution can be sent to Proofpoint Enterprise Governance for classification. Proofpoint Enterprise Governance can classify and apply regulatory labels to files at multiple points within an enterprise, including internal email, files stored on laptops and desktops, file sharing systems and collaboration platforms such as Box.net, with whom Proofpoint announced an integration in February."
