Transitioning from Proofpoint Secure Share to eShare: Navigating the New Landscape of Secure Communication

Understanding Proofpoint Secure Share

Proofpoint Secure Share has been a staple in secure digital communication, providing a platform for encrypted email and file sharing, especially for sensitive data. Its core functionality included secure message delivery, ensuring that only intended recipients could access and read the contents. Features like expiration dates on messages and robust compliance with data protection regulations made SecureShare a go-to solution for many businesses.

The Problem: Discontinuation of Secure Share

With Secure Share going out of service, businesses must quickly find a secure alternative to avoid vulnerabilities in handling sensitive information.
• Compliance Risks:
Many organizations used Secure Share to comply with industry regulations. Finding a replacement that meets these standards is crucial to maintain compliance.
