Proofpoint Senior Product Manager in Boston, Massachusetts

It's fun to work in a company where people truly BELIEVE in what they're doing!

We're committed to bringing passion and customer focus to the business.

Company Overview

In Proofpoint, a leader in Email Security, Digital Risk Management and Security Awareness Training, Cloud Access Security Brokers we seek to work on the next generation of security solution that focuses on people, rather than physical perimeters.

The network perimeter is dissolving. And a people perimeter is taking its place. Today’s workforce has gone remote. Employees now use their personal devices and unmanaged apps for work. Critical infrastructure and data increasingly reside in the public cloud. And cyber attackers target people now more than ever. In this changing environment, security administrators must take a people-centric approach to cloud security. Proofpoint Information and Cloud Security fits that bill. The platform combines many of our products to address secure access, data loss prevention (DLP) and insider-risk use cases. It offers world-class threat, content and behavior detection. The platform also delivers people-centric visibility and access controls for web, cloud and private apps. It features a unified administration and response console.

The Proofpoint Information and Cloud Security platform is powerful and cloud native. And it aligns to the industry vision of a secure service edge (SSE)

architecture. (SSE applies secure access and threat protection as people access apps and data, no matter where they are or what device they are using.)

The Role

We are seeking an energetic Product Manager who is an exceptional team player, to join our Cloud Security group to help expand our Zero Trust Access and our Web Security solutions.
