There is not much to dislike. The reports are getting improved.

Forcepoint is a Complete Solution for Web Security

What do you like best?

I like the fact that Forcepoint is a good solution but is also becoming more people focused and they listen to what we have to say about the product and what our business needs are. They listen and then do what they can to implement these suggestions.

What do you dislike?

Right now I don't like the multiple endpoint solutions that have to be installed on systems for off network safety. This is if you are using more than just Web Security, like DLP, which comes with its own endpoint. But, I hear they are working towards integration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really look at their offerings. Ask technical questions and let them get their technical back end involved to answer them. Scope your project and know what you need before beginning. It is a complex solution but proper planning will minimize this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This Web Security solution solves a variety of the standard Web Filtering solutions with the added features that Forcepoint provides. We have ability to customize our blocking and determine if additional URLs are needed along with the integration of a cloud based hybrid endpoint that allows for off network users to be filtered as if on network. It's a complete solution so the benefits are long, but security in any web interfacing is primary.

What Secure Web Gateway solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Solid Web Security Solution with Amazing Reporting

What do you like best?

The Web Security suite just works. We've encountered very little downtime and the support has been fantastic.

What do you dislike?

documentation can be overwhelming. Its well done, but too much of it means you search to find answers to simple questions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have all your needs laid out. There are cheaper solutions out there but they do less. if you need a best in breed solution this is it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mis-use of company time and the need to block malicious links on the fly. It has reduced our helpdesk calls about malicious links.

Force Point Takes teh manual part out.

What do you like best?

There is less to research with the Force Point community already submitting block requests for site they have found hazardous. The preset Categories make it easy to create policies to block and allow through.

What do you dislike?

The upgrade process has not been quick and easy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan on training with installation and use Professional Services. it is well worth the extra cost to have the experience to get this configured correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating a block for all PCI type information and only allowing Servers configured to do PCI transactions.

With so many cyber security problems applications like this are very needed to secure the internet

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
