Enterprise Security with Proofpoint

conceptual image representing enterprise cyber security

The Brief

Although a market leader in the US, Proofpoint are relatively new to the Australian market, therefore required Best Case Scenario to support their marketing strategy, brand and event initiatives across the region.

“Leveraging local third-party suppliers or partners was a no brainer for me. However, what was important is that I chose partners who are well-established, connected and added an abundance of value. An extension of my team, they needed to understand our industry, our clients and converse effectively with senior executives. BCS have exceeded expectations and are integral when it comes planning our strategic event marketing. I cannot recommend them highly enough”

Michelle McEnroe, Proofpoint Senior Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific
