Security vendor ProofPoint, was due to make announcements about its Proofpoint Enterprise Protection and the Proofpoint Enterprise Privacy suites. 

Pretty uncontroversial, you might think. We're not allowed to tell you exactly what these announcements are, so we haven't. But we can tell you when they will be.

More ominously still, they've postponed the big day of their earth shattering news.

Is everything alright at Proofpoint?

What are they so nervous about? How bad can it be?

We cannot wait for Wednesday. Hold onto your hats, it's going to be exciting.

Sometimes I think we'd be better off with the viruses.
