Very easy to push updates to all users, scan all pcs in a business, and visually see if a pc is not up to the latest virus updates.

Forcepoint Web Security

It is very well suited for [an] environment where the internet usage is high and most business applications are either cloud or internet-based e.g. SAP, GST, E-way billings, etc. It is not appropriate for organizations where the hardware is not being updated for a long time as it requires good hardware to run it without any hassle.

Pros

Avast CloudCare

  • Great central management platform.
  • Policies are straightforward to create and deploy, and you can use groups with individual policies.

Forcepoint Web Security

  • It prevents users from accessing websites that may have recently been created for the purpose of distributing malware.
  • It prevents users from accidentally or intentionally accessing websites that are considered inappropriate for a work environment.
  • It allows us to create different policies for different teams in our organization.

Cons

Avast CloudCare

  • reporting on failed backup
  • duplicate reporting
  • false positives
Matthew Strickland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Forcepoint Web Security

  • The user access logs contain a lot of useless information. I understand this is very hard to tackle as I've seen this across any product that logs web activity.
  • I would like to see more customization options of website block pages.

It is very stable, the organisation has "locked in" the product and has no plans to change or try another product. We have already renewed our 2019-2020 licenses. It is user friendly and people catch on easily when they first use it. The only downtime is when we install Microsoft updates!It has excellent reporting which help in determining how the organisation's Internet is used and also during both internal and external IT audits.

Despite the intimidating Linux CLI when you use the appliance for troubleshooting, the web security usability compensates as most of the Administration of the system is done there. It is GUI based and has an easy to use UI where one can navigate around rather easily like getting reports, checking alerts, looking the whole setup under deployment to check if all services are running in one place though there are other parts to the system.

The support at Avast CloudCare is excellent; the guys are professional and know their product very well. They have helped us (in the latter years of us using the product), on multiple occasions, especially when an upgrade goes wrong. Community support is not as high, but that is to be expected, as other products are much more popular and have much better adoption. All in all, although being an average Antivirus solution, the management console is excellent, and the support the company offers is excellent too.

The is a quick first response to acknowledge your issue and the Engineers never take more than two hours to fix an issue and we hardly get issues looking at the fact that the system is pretty stable. There is also a robust Knowledge Base in the site for known problems.

Alternatives Considered

Avast CloudCare

We used to use Norton AV exclusively for all our business and home users, but it got to where it was using a lot of system resources and would slow down some computers. We selected Avast cloud care since it was a lighter weight program and provided great results as far as protection.

Forcepoint Web Security

To be honest, once using Forcepoint for our Web Security, I have not wanted to look anywhere else. The dashboard gives me quick insight of threats, productivity, and bandwidth usage. Again, this is a layer in my security and it fills many holes. I feel safe and I do like I can just let it do its thing

Return on Investment

Avast CloudCare

  • Below average protection.
  • On the flip-side it is cheap.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Forcepoint Web Security

  • The design of Forcepoint Web Security [in my opinion] does not lend itself well to remote workers. This was obvious [to me] before the pandemic and was only more evident with the pandemic.
  • Quality control of Forcepoint Web Security software requires staff time and resources to administer and upgrade. It is refreshing to see the administration [needs to be] reduced with a cloud-based solution.
