CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Proofpoint, Inc., the leader in large-enterprise messaging security solutions, today introduced Proofpoint Smart Search, its new solution for advanced message tracing, forensics and email log analysis. Proofpoint Smart Search enhances the built-in logging and reporting capabilities of Proofpoint’s messaging security solutions with enterprise-class log search and message tracing features. Message logs can be searched and analyzed from one convenient, easy-to-use graphical interface—even across globally distributed Proofpoint deployments.

Proofpoint Smart Search’s high-performance search and reporting features help enterprises find messages, analyze how messages were processed by the Proofpoint system and report on the status of any email message. Email administrators or IT helpdesk staff can instantly locate message data and quickly respond to a wide variety of email troubleshooting or investigation requests such as:

  • Message tracing: An executive asks the helpdesk what happened to an important message that was never received by a business partner. Proofpoint Smart Search can quickly locate the message and report on its delivery status.
  • Investigation: Has an end user been exchanging email with a competitor? What were the subjects of those messages? Proofpoint Smart Search has the answers.
  • Forensics: The legal department needs to know exactly when and to which server an important notification was delivered. Proofpoint Smart Search provides easy-to-understand details about message handling and delivery.
