    Forcepoint DLP

    It's very user friendly and easy to use. Rules can be managed on user-friendly interface web site console. For-example, violation can be release via management module. It provide prevention sensitive data against accidental data loss and compromised. Rule set sometimes work, sometimes does not work. There is no OCR feature. Forcepoint DLP tool does not have any AI feature that can learn user behavior or data and produces alarm.

    Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

    Pros

    Forcepoint DLP

    • It has predominantly protected us from unauthorized parties and has provided us with better visibility and control over our data.
    • This software has also successfully prevented us from both malicious and accidental tasks, which are quite flexible actions when it comes to the violation of data loss prevention policies.
    • This product has been successful in improving compliance and even mitigating compliance violations, which further facilitated IT security.
    • I think there is room for improvement, as the user interface is slightly rough and difficult to adopt in the beginning. The software also hangs up at a few instances, which leads to some wasting of time and annoyance, but other than that, this software is good. The technical staff should work on the complexities for a better user experience.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
    • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

    Cons

    Forcepoint DLP

    • Forcepoint technical support--specially for users who go with essential support--is challenging to get support on time. You need the ticket to be raised long beforehand to get support from TAC. However, in the case of enterprise support, its is not like this technical person will come on a priority basis.
    • However it comes with higher prices, especially for SMB, it is allowed to pay that amount for support only.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
    • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
    • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

    We have been fairly happy with the product and how it has worked. We have looked at other vendors for url filter and such and have not found one that meets our needs or does what we have been doing with Websense. The product has been fairly stable and we have only had a few issues in the past. We have all seen that it was one of the highest leaders from the Gartner Group Magic Quadrant for Web Gateways.

    Support from Forcepoint has been lacking. When calling in with a high priority issue we rarely are able to work with a technician immediately. The queue waits are very long and when you get through there are no support engineers available and we need to wait for a call back for hours it seems.

    Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

    Alternatives Considered

    Forcepoint DLP

    User friendly solution that makes it easy to deploy and manage. Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention very effective to protecting our valuable data on endpoints and where data lives like in the Cloud, server and on-premises disk drives and its valuable to just set policies once and start utilizing Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention solution.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    Defender works better for my org. This may depend on your ecosystem, however for me, Defender is a clear winner. I like Defender's ability to utilize multiple sensors and data points to detect possible breaches. I like the built-in EDR functionality. I do not need to purchase a separate EDR software anymore. I really like the vulnerability management. it has enabled our SOC team to view multiple security-related sensors from a single portal.

    Return on Investment

    Forcepoint DLP

    • The exchange of financial documents with customers creates extreme risk as data loss could result in financial and reputation damage to the customer. The cost of deploying Forcepoint is fractions of pennies compared to the potential financial impact of data loss.
    • There is some administrative overhead associated as false positives are inevitable, requiring a manual review and a potential loss of productivity.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
    • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
