    Any organization with a robust IT support network and with 100+ users, all the way up to international conglomerates with millions of workers. The only situation I can see where it might be harder is if you have a very small business with limited technical know-how. Otherwise, it's honestly the no-brainer choice.

    Forcepoint

    If you are looking for a smaller network/security team, the ease and low complexity create an easy to manage environment. One engineer can easily manage 100 nodes/locations. If you are just starting to get security conscious and predict regular adjustments to policy, routing, and access, this is a very good system for making easy to understand and low impact changes on a regular basis without operations interruption.

    Pros

    Citrix

    • Excellent integration with the Citrix Cloud Connector makes it a breeze to use.
    • Access control is locked down with biometric security and easy password creation.
    • License usage is always 100% secure.

    Forcepoint

    • Easy to manage and make changes on - ACL's are done with ease.
    • Easy USB initial configuration - The easy initial setup of a new location and firewall saves massive time. Settings are automatically pushed to new nodes upon contact with the controller.
    • Low Complexity - This system does not have a lot of complexity requiring extra hours, training, or personnel to manage.

    Cons

    Citrix

    • Sometimes the interface is a bit slow to load. That's honestly about it!

    Forcepoint

    • Poor Reporting - It exists but even when calling in to support for assistance, they have no idea how to tackle customizing reports or searching for specific data.

        Support has varied over the history of the company. Terro is a name that comes up often with the best of service from this company.

        Alternatives Considered

        Citrix

        After a lengthy vendor selection process we determined that CloudBridge was the best solution—although as always with demos it was difficult to tell if we'd really made the right decision. Since selecting CloudBridge—hough I have had lots of input from colleagues who use other systems—I feel very happy with our choice. The feature set alone is just far superior.

        There are similar hardware and license costs between the two products. The Forcepoint NGFW product is by far easier to use and manage.

        Return on Investment

        Citrix

        • Tremendous savings from high uptime percent.
        • Keeping our remote users engaged and stable at work means we can hire anywhere on earth.
        • Access control keeps our IT team from constantly being tied up with password resets.

        Forcepoint

        • Efficiency/Productivity increase. The company moved from Cisco firewall and routing hardware to Forcepoint NGFW. It now takes fewer people and fewer hours to manage the new product. This has allowed the company to put the man-hours to use on other projects and tasks.
        • Long term viability. This has been a concern in the past when the company started as Stonegate, merged to become Stonesoft then got purchased by McAfee, then McAfee got purchased by Intel. However, with Forcepoint the product seems to have found a stable home.
        • Low complexity. The Web GUI based system for management has reduced the cost of personnel and training required. There is no longer a need for the company to have higher trained and higher salary cost employees to manage the system. Mid-level admins at lower salaries are capable of managing the GUI based system with ease.
