Attachment Defense Protection

More than 90% of targeted attacks start with email—and these threats are always evolving. Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) helps you stay ahead of attackers with an innovative approach that detects, analyzes and blocks advanced threats before they reach your inbox. This includes ransomware and other advanced email threats delivered through malicious attachments and URLs. And zero-day threats, polymorphic malware, weaponized documents and phishing attacks. TAP provides adaptive controls to isolate the riskiest URL clicks. TAP also detects threats and risks in cloud apps, connecting email attacks related to credential theft or other attacks.

TAP (Targeted Attack Protection) has two components:
Attachment Defense: TAP can hold messages until a verdict is received after analyzing the attachment. Clean ones are delivered to the inbox and threats are quarantined.
URL Defense: Messages containing URLs that are known to be malicious are immediately quarantined. TAP rewrites all other URLs in order to track and block clicks. When users click on the rewritten URLs, TAP redirects them — based on the result from inspection — to either the original webpage or a customizable block page that prevents access to compromised site.
