Last year, Intel announced that it will be discontinuing the majority of its McAfee Email Security Solutions as of January 2017.  Increasing its focus on other security areas, Intel will be exiting from several product areas, including McAfee Email Protection, or “AntiSpam.”

To help smooth the transition for existing McAfee Email Security customers, Intel/McAFee has identified Proofpoint as the supported alternative for McAfee Email Security Solutions, including AntiSpam service.  Proofpoint has been a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateway for 7 consecutive years and is trusted by over half of the Fortune 100 to protect their organizations.  Proofpoint has products that not only match McAfee’s discontinued Email Security Solutions but also extend protection with more feature rich enhancements.  Proofpoint also has products that extend to adjacent messaging areas such as Archiving and Encryption.

Tier1Net has been working with Proofpoint since McAfee’s announcement and feels confident in moving forward with this transition.

Over the next ninety days, Tier1Net will be migrating all McAfee AntiSpam accounts to Proofpoint.  The migration to Proofpoint will be a simple overnight transition and will not interrupt your company’s mail flow or email security.    All existing approved senders and blocked senders will migrate to the new Proofpoint platform, and your employees will continue to receive daily quarantine reports.
