If you have a large number of clients that need to access different products within your company it is a good fit. If you just need to protect access within your company, you'd probably just want to look into Cisco Umbrella. The MSP product is specifically tapered to [manage] access from 3rd parties outside of the company.

Forcepoint
It is appropriate for medium to large-scale enterprises, especially the ones that have remote employees. The live-monitoring feature is extremely useful in this case. However, the implementation and initial processing are headache-inducing so you definitely need a dedicated IT team. Be warned though, that not only is their interface quite complex, their customer service is also extremely unhelpful so you won't be able to implement this or tackle any issues without a skilled team. But if that isn't an issue, this is definitely worth a try!

  • Analyzing security logs can be challenging as the interface is rather slow and due to the large quantity of logged data.
  • It is not always clear why a resource was blocked as there are 2 types of block lists
  • Clients sometimes have to re-logon in order to get an updated policy rolled out.

The platform is really good but needs a lot of customization and effort. Need to build an AI platform that will help in customizations.

The interface of both the softwares is complex, but Forcepoint is certainly more complicated. But once you get past that, it is quite smooth and offers a lot of amazing features. It is one of the best options for remote security, although I would love to see more features - like encryption. The one place where it truly lacks is customer service, and since it has such an intricate implementation procedure, this one carries a lot of weight and needs to be improved to make this software even more accessible.

  • Not always clear which block list caused an access issue. [There are] several places that need to be checked.
  • Client policies take a while to get updated, sometimes need to re-logon

  • We are working on strategies to understand what to do with the information that CASB gave to us, it would be good if Forcepoint gives us a few key points but they haven't.
