SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Proofpoint, Inc. (, the leading provider of unified email security, archiving and data loss prevention solutions, today announced that the Proofpoint Email Archiving solution now allows mobile employees to utilize the archive search function directly from Microsoft Outlook Web Access. This new feature makes it simple for IT managers and email end users to locate important email messages and attachments while away from the office, using any web-enabled device supported by Outlook Web Access.

Proofpoint's existing Outlook integration requires no client-side software and provides seamless integration, which enhances the end user search experience, guarantees near real-time search results and delivers the highest level of security with Proofpoint's DoubleBlind Encryption™. The product update also allows users to search mailboxes for historical email messages that have been securely archived and reside in Proofpoint's data center through Outlook Web Access.

"Just recently, Forrester Research reported that mobile workers will make up 73 percent of the workforce by 2012(1)," said Andres Kohn, vice president of technology for Proofpoint. "Many of these employees will access corporate email while away from the office and companies must be prepared to manage archiving demands accordingly. When urgent issues arise, such as time-sensitive e-discovery and regulatory compliance issues, employees will need instant access to email archives in order to meet those deadlines."
