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!

Lacework is well suited for behavioral analysis. One thing to consider thought is in the early stages there will be quite a bit of noise generated by Lacework. There will be a higher volume alerts generated initially - until a good baseline is generated. Overall Lacework is good with alert handling - integration with Slack is good.

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.

Compared to Sysdig Falco (the free open-source IDS), Lacework helps security teams by providing actionable alerts and a user-friendly interface that gives you an overview of all workloads being monitored, and detailed insights into these workloads if needed. Falco requires you to build your own integration and interface around it, including a mechanism to whitelist certain alerts. This made it harder for the security team to focus their time on potential intrusions.

Forcepoint
  • 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.
