Single Server Deployment:

In a single server deployment, single instance of Splunk Enterprise functions as data collection node, indexer and search head. In such deployment, install the add-ons Proofpoint Email Security Add-On and Proofpoint TAP SIEM Modular Input. After that, install Proofpoint Email Security App For Splunk.

Distributed Deployment

In a distributed deployment, typically a combination of forwarders are deployed for data collection, separate indexer nodes for data ingestion and search heads for data visualization are deployed. We recommend installing our Add-Ons on both Forwarder and Search heads and the App on the search head.

Proofpoint TAP SIEM Modular Input 1.0.1 available (TA) Install No (Note) Install

Note: When there is no forwarder, you will have to install the Add-on on Indexer.

Proofpoint On Demand Email Security App Configuration

Changing the Index

By default this app uses the "main" index to look for Proofpoint logs. To change this to an index that the Proofpoint On Demand Email Security Add-on uses, you need to edit the pps_get_index macro. Here are the steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings->Advanced Search and select "Search macros"
  2. Change the app context to "Proofpoint On Demand Email Security App"
  3. Select the macro named "pps_get_index"
  4. Change index=main to the correct index. Please make sure this index matches the one used by the Proofpoint On Demand Email Security Add-on.
  5. Save the configuration.

Accelerate the Data Model

By default, the data model acceleration is not enabled. You need to enable this to make sure the dashboards show the realtime data.

  1. Login to Splunk as admin and select Settings then Data Model.
  2. Make sure to select "Proofpoint On Demand Email Security App" app context.
  3. On "Proofpoint On Demand Email Security Data Model", click the "Edit" and select "Edit Acceleration"
  4. Select the "Accelerate" checkbox.
  5. For "Summary Range" select week, month, year or all time depending on how much data you would like to see on the dashboard.
  6. Save the configuration


Note: Please wait few minutes after the changing the Acceleration settings to check the dashboard.

  1. To view the dashboards from the splunk home page, click on the Proofpoint On Demand Email Security App" icon. This should take you to Proofpoint Email Security Dashboard with latest stats.
  2. Explore the built-in "Message Summary" tab that can be used to find a given email.
  3. The "TLS Dashboard" tab shows the connections that were using TLS and also lists the domains not using TLS.
  4. Explore the "Reports" tabs for various built-in reports.
