    Forcepoint URL Filtering

    If you need granular user and computer reporting, Websense is very reliable. It will provide strong protection and filtering once set up. If you aren't savvy with the technology involved, engage support early in your configuration, as it is complicated. The hybrid mobile client works well for your laptop users that you need protected and reporting out in the real world, but again is complicated to initially set up. Once you get it set up, the websense product is very solid. If you don't need the reporting and don't need it to be accurate to the person/computer, then it is more inline with the web filtering offered integrated by the various firewall providers out there and you can decide whether you want to have a separate appliance for web filtering or have it as part of the all in one firewall solution.

    Pros

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • SSL inspection provides more effective mitigation of threat and data leakage with the ability to inspect and analyze encrypted traffic.
    • Threat emulation and extraction provides protection against zero-day threats without compromising the data of infected files.
    • 'Office mode' VPN provides a seamless connected experience for remotely connected individuals.
    • Application control features provide granular restrictions to the type of application traffic than can pass through the network.

    Forcepoint URL Filtering

    • It tracks user activity, which means our HR department has a tool to report on certain users' activities when their productivity vs. internet surfing habits are in question. The reports are pretty simple to create and view and the ability to export to Excel has been useful. The ability to automatically generate and email these reports on a schedule has been useful at times too.
    • The ability to set quotas, such as users are allowed to spend 30minutes per day on Facebook or 30minutes a day on shopping sites, which displays the quota for the user when they enter such a site, has been a valuable reminder of our company policies for such activity.
    • The ability to prevent certain types of protocols for certain groups of users, such as group xyz is not allowed on FTP sites, or only https, has allowed to consider and set security parameters for different groups of users.
    • The ability to easily override any group policy setting for a certain individual if an immediate need for something outside the box arises has been useful. If a certain user is temporarily filling in for another person on vacation and needs additional internet access with less restrictions, we just call out that user specifically in the software and apply a different policy, then easily remove that the following week.

    Cons

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • HTTPS Inspection -- The firewall has troubles re-packaging the packet in a way that some websites are able to interpret correctly
    • Support -- Even getting support directly from Check Point isn't the easiest of experiences. They are more concerned about how fast they can close a ticket out, rather than fixing the problem.
    • Custom reports -- Custom reporting is extremely limited

    Forcepoint URL Filtering

    • It needs the ability to measure bandwidth. I want to know how much a user is taking up. The fact that he/she has 17,000 hits doesn't help.
    • Clients, Policies, Filters can be confusing. Maybe it's too complicated and can be simplified?

    It's easy to use, easy to setup and maintain and their new Forcepoint hosted solution includes new security features that will sandbox a website and test it for malicious code prior to passing it through to the user machine. This is an excellent cyber security prevention technique and we will be upgrading to this shortly.

    It's pretty easy to use but does take some getting used to. After an hour of using the software, you will be good to go.

    Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

    Alternatives Considered

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    In a heterogeneous environment, we wanted to keep multiple vendors for multiple purposes. CP was found very good in handling basic Next generation firewalls features along with handling of VPNs.

    Return on Investment

    Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

    • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
    • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
    • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.

    Forcepoint URL Filtering

    • The websense filtering has helped us to reduce and eliminate productivity losses from some gaming and streaming services.
    • We have been able to lower our liability from illegal streaming services and also adult content viewing (and also reduced the internet uses related to those services).
    • The filtering service has helped us to prevent virus spread on the network and also helped as a layer to pinpoint affected endpoints, that had gone unnoticed by our antivirus solution. By alerting to those early infections, we can quarantine the device before the infection spreads or affects other endpoints.
    • The solution has given the HR department reporting they needed when employees were under review without having to pull any local logs or have any local solutions installed.
    • The hybrid client has worked well in a few remote offices, meaning we didn't need a separate proxy service to filter and protect that traffic.
