For any form of company control on a larger scale where threats can have a very detrimental effect but not suited to SME scenarios was cost factor would be a key component and not require as much automation.

Forcepoint

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.

  • 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.

      Forcepoint

      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.

      Better price point and interface and system thinking ahead to the future and not re-using the same old systems.

      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

      • Protected against some dangerous day zero threats.

      • 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.
