Proofpoint Integration Guide for SecurityCoach

In this article, you will learn how to integrate Proofpoint’s Email Security and Protection product with SecurityCoach. Once the integration is complete, data provided by Proofpoint will be available for use under the SecurityCoach tab of your KMSAT console. This data can be viewed in SecurityCoach reports and used to create detection rules for real-time coaching campaigns. For general information about SecurityCoach, see our SecurityCoach Product Manual.
