Cybercriminals commonly send malicious attachments and hyperlinks via email in order to infect your computer with malware or direct you to websites designed to trick you into revealing your account credentials.
Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) helps protect your email from targeted attacks and phishing attempts. It works two ways:
- URL defense – scans and rewrites all email URLs, and blocks malicious links.
- Attachment defense – scans and blocks malicious attachments.
TAP works behind the scenes, which means you do not need to do anything to activate or take advantage of the system.
