SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Proofpoint, Inc., the leading provider of unified email security and data loss prevention solutions, today announced the availability of its next-generation email security and data loss prevention appliances, including extremely high-performance models powered by multiple Intel Quad-Core processors.
