Differences between SpamCheetah and Proofpoint

Sophos is an established player in E-mail security space with massive infrastructure investments, revenue and customer base. Their email products are well accepted in the enterprise marketplace.

SpamCheetah has comparable features but getting an enterprise sale is not purely on technical merit alone,so we try our level best to convince you how we fare through plentiful documentation and live demos.

Proofpoint is perhaps more of a brand and safety net than anything else. For people with that mindset who want to play safe they will not move out.

However if you wish to give us a chance by all means welcome. And we are more than happy to serve you.
