“We are proud to be one of the first Microsoft Teams security and compliance partners across DLP, content capture, and archiving,” said Ryan Kalember, executive vice president of Cybersecurity Strategy for Proofpoint. “Teams compliance is a must-have for regulated and highly litigious industries, while Teams DLP is a must-have essential for all organizations as their users increasingly rely on the Teams platform to collaborate with sensitive information.”
