Proofpoint, a provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions for enterprise messaging and collaboration, today announced a collaboration with VMware to provide security and compliance solutions for the VMware Zimbra platform.
The integration of Proofpoint Enterprise Protection and Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy with VMware Zimbra provides customers with advanced regulatory compliance, email encryption, anti-phishing, data privacy and data loss prevention capabilities
VMware Zimbra is a collaboration hub for email, contacts, calendars, documents, file sharing, tasks, social media and enterprise applications. VMware Zimbra supports Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer on any desktop or device, and works with Windows, Mac and Linux desktops.
Proofpoint has worked with VMware Zimbra to custom-engineer the integration of its solutions with the VMware Zimbra platform to provide users with maximum protection
The VMware Zimbra Platform has open APIs to add new end user functionality called “Zimlets.” This partnership introduces a new Zimlet: the secure-send Zimlet which allows users to send encrypted messages using Proofpoint Encryption.
Moreover, Proofpoint has introduced functionality to automatically quarantine spam by learning from actions taken by the user.
