Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on Proofpoint

Guru stock highlight

April 20, 2017 | About:

We recently established a position in Proofpoint, Inc. (NASDAQ:PFPT). We believe it is addressing a large market opportunity through its leading cloud-based cybersecurity and archiving platform, enabling companies to protect assets such as e-mail, cloud software applications and social media. We believe Proofpoint is positioned to gain market share as customers rethink their security architecture following deployments of new cloud applications, such as Office365, as well as the rising complexity of the IT environment and the evolving cyber-threat landscape. In addition, we believe the recently announced partnerships with vendors such as Palo Alto, Splunk and McAfee should provide the company additional opportunity for accelerated growth. Lastly, we expect the company to continue to use the data it collects to create improved threat protection products, and to leverage its strong brand and customer relationships to cross- and up-sell these enhanced solutions into its expanding customer base.

From the Baron Opportunity Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.
