Using Proofpoint with TruSTAR

Updated 2 days ago by Sachit Soni

Proofpoint provides inbound email security, outbound data loss prevention, digital risk, email encryption, and email archiving. TruSTAR's Enclave Email Inbox functionality enables users with Proofpoint to ingest these emails and enrich suspicious IOCs with additional intelligence and pull that into their workflow tools.

Note: An enclave is limited to a single Enclave inbox configuration

Prerequisites

Proofpoint:

  • Proofpoint licensed user
  • Permissions to configure forwarding rules.

TruSTAR:

  • You must by a Company Administrator to set up Enclave email inboxes.

Set-up

After you have retrieved your Proofpoint API key, follow these steps:

  1. Log into TruSTAR Station and navigate to User Settings -> Settings -> Enclave inbox.
  2. Follow the configuration instructions to set-up or update an Enclave email inbox.
  3. In the accepted sender field, include: tap-notifications@proofpoint.com
    Tip: Leaving the accepted prefix field blank will allow all emails to be ingested without a filter on the subject line
  4. Click Submit (new inbox) or Update (editing an existing inbox).

After the set-up is complete, reports from Proofpoint TAP will be submitted into your private enclave. You should expect to see reports populate within 15 minutes of a successful configuration.
