Email, web browser, and data storage areas will fulfill the security of mobile devices very well. It provides multiple methods of data filtering and classification to ensure important data can be well protected. Unfortunately, it does not support you to make regex-based definitions. for this reason, you need to work on the rules a lot. Another disadvantage is that it cannot monitor Linux systems.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Protection against Data Leakage via the USB channel on endpoints.

Read full review Cons 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.

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.

Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.
Read full review Return on Investment 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.
