Proofpoint configuration

Updated 3 weeks ago by Sachit Soni

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

Prerequisites

This set-up requires TruSTAR users to be users of Proofpoint and able to configure forwarding rules.

Set-up

After you have retrieved your Flashpoint API key follow these steps:

  1. Log into TruSTAR Station and navigate to Settings->Enclave inbox (https://station.trustar.co/settings/email).
  2. Follow the configuration instructions to set-up or update an Enclave inbox: https://support.trustar.co/article/xr5632rgzp-email-ingest
    Note: An enclave is limited to a single Enclave inbox configuration
  3. In the accepted sender 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 or Update

TruSTAR will process this request and users can expect to see reports populate within 15 minutes of a successful configuration.

After the set-up is complete you should see reports from Proofpoint TAP being submitted into your configured private enclave.
