Pros: This gives you yet another tool to get rid of pesky ransomware and mal-intended e-mails from email boxes.
Cons: Part of a module, this is not generally sold sperately without having the proofpoint system and can be quite costly
Proofpoint Essentials is a full featured, easy to use product.

Pros: We have recently started using Proofpoint Essentials, as it comes built-in with another 3rd party software we use. The admin dashboard is laid out nicely and allows us to easily adjust every aspect to suit our needs. Proofpoint also sends me a daily log of anything that has been quarantined for any user, which is helpful.
Cons: I would have like some sort of "quick start" guide for using the admin dashboard, but I think since what we are using is built-in to another program that's why we didn't get alot of instruction, which is not Proofpoint's fault.
Overall: We gained a greater ability to customize security and encryption for our end users.
