  • Control access to critical enterprise resources by business role, device type, and location, so policy changes can be made without redesigning the network.
  • Easily manage access control and segmentation while maintaining compliance.
  • Create and manage policies in an easy-to-use matrix.
  • Reduce the need for costly network re-architecture by automating firewall rules and access control list (ACL) administration.

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

Cisco TrustSec

  • Reduce operational expenses by simplifying network segmentation and defining security groups based on business roles, not IP addresses.
  • Limit the impact of a data breach by quickly isolating and containing threats using technology already in your network.

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 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.

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

Cisco TrustSec

  • Reduction in IT operational costs

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.
