    ActivTrak is well suited to for the reasons that we wanted a monitoring software solution implemented. It allows us to manage the performance of our overseas offices and those who are working from home, where they do not have the direct management from their Line Manager. The biggest issue for us is, as we have numerous offices in different countries, having to constantly change the time zone to each one before running the reports is time consuming and an annoyance if you forget to change it, as you then have to rerun the report.

    Forcepoint

    It's very user friendly and easy to use. Rules can be managed on user-friendly interface web site console. For-example, violation can be release via management module. It provide prevention sensitive data against accidental data loss and compromised. Rule set sometimes work, sometimes does not work. There is no OCR feature. Forcepoint DLP tool does not have any AI feature that can learn user behavior or data and produces alarm.

    Pros

    ActivTrak

    • Detailed listings of actions at times. done by the second in many cases, very useful.
    • the productive/unproductive listings allow managers at a glance to see their employees use of time
    • Snapshots ( when properly utilized) are very helpful in troubleshooting, strange, occurrences, as well as they're used by Human resources.
    • The IT help desk is very efficient. log in to your portal, bottom right, and in minutes your talking to someone.

    Forcepoint

    • It has predominantly protected us from unauthorized parties and has provided us with better visibility and control over our data.
    • This software has also successfully prevented us from both malicious and accidental tasks, which are quite flexible actions when it comes to the violation of data loss prevention policies.
    • This product has been successful in improving compliance and even mitigating compliance violations, which further facilitated IT security.
    • I think there is room for improvement, as the user interface is slightly rough and difficult to adopt in the beginning. The software also hangs up at a few instances, which leads to some wasting of time and annoyance, but other than that, this software is good. The technical staff should work on the complexities for a better user experience.

    Cons

    ActivTrak

    • Rollout through Group Policy could be a little smoother.
    • Alarms for when an employee has been inactive for a specified amount of time.
    • Alert for computers that no longer are active.
    • More streamlined integration with identifying computers and users.
    • More specific breakdowns of classifications, ie - the ability to say Facebook for business is Productive, but scrolling feeds and watching videos is unproductive.
    • Classifications to more easily auto-classify e-commerce hubs and portals.

    Forcepoint

    • Forcepoint technical support--specially for users who go with essential support--is challenging to get support on time. You need the ticket to be raised long beforehand to get support from TAC. However, in the case of enterprise support, its is not like this technical person will come on a priority basis.
    • However it comes with higher prices, especially for SMB, it is allowed to pay that amount for support only.

      We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

      We have been fairly happy with the product and how it has worked. We have looked at other vendors for url filter and such and have not found one that meets our needs or does what we have been doing with Websense. The product has been fairly stable and we have only had a few issues in the past. We have all seen that it was one of the highest leaders from the Gartner Group Magic Quadrant for Web Gateways.

      Usability

      ActivTrak

      ActivTrak is a great product that just keeps growing. Having used it for quite some time, we have been able to see ActivTrak grow and evolve as a product. The ActivTrak webinars are also helpful to get to know and learn the product. ActivTrak really just works with little effort needed after the initial installation

      Support Rating

      ActivTrak

      Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

      Support from Forcepoint has been lacking. When calling in with a high priority issue we rarely are able to work with a technician immediately. The queue waits are very long and when you get through there are no support engineers available and we need to wait for a call back for hours it seems.

      Alternatives Considered

      ActivTrak

      We were using Currentware and Webspy from Vantage. Neither product could track daily usage in a detailed way ActivTrak can. Also, web spy could only track in-house users whereas ActivTrak can track work from home users. Using Active Trak we were about to combine the features of both software packages into one.

      User friendly solution that makes it easy to deploy and manage. Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention very effective to protecting our valuable data on endpoints and where data lives like in the Cloud, server and on-premises disk drives and its valuable to just set policies once and start utilizing Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention solution.

      Return on Investment

      ActivTrak

      • Defensive capabilities immediately avoided data exfiltration from an outgoing employee.
      • Trends for underperforming or underdeveloping users can be spotted, analyzed by managers, and used within their overall development management to help staff reach their best potential.
      • Costing for targeted use is relatively low and therefore a "no brainer."

      Forcepoint

      • The exchange of financial documents with customers creates extreme risk as data loss could result in financial and reputation damage to the customer. The cost of deploying Forcepoint is fractions of pennies compared to the potential financial impact of data loss.
      • There is some administrative overhead associated as false positives are inevitable, requiring a manual review and a potential loss of productivity.
