Forcepoint DLP

Websense requires some work but is good with the DLP appliances. The content gateway needs some improvement and the endpoint agent has affected performance in some cases. All in all, it does the job but not without a good investment of work and time!

If you're looking to ramp up your Cyber Security operations, Zscaler is a must-see. Their demos are great and the implementation is fairly painless. DAS helps you to get it set up and ensure success.

Zscaler Web Security

  • Zscaler allows us to grow our network without a great deal of additional hardware infrastructure.
  • It secures cloud-based applications without the data center having to perform complex configurations.
  • We are slowly moving away from VPN as our primary security mechanism and this permits this.

Cons

Forcepoint DLP

  • Remote filtering is not as advanced as we would like.
  • Support time is not as quick as needed in most cases.
  • Upgrades of appliances and software is not as easy as other solutions.
  • HTTPS inspection needs to hand a valid cert and doesnt work correctly with all vendors.

Zscaler Web Security

  • The pre-baked reports within Zscaler could do with a refresh, add some new reports in-tune with new threats. IE: show me any examples of crypto mining detected in the org
  • Zscaler could make it easier to clean out expired accounts or those of ex-employees to get a more accurate reading of activity
  • Failover monitoring for GRE tunnels could be improved although it does work

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.

Alternatives Considered

Forcepoint DLP

We've been using Websense for as long as I've been at Heitman. I had a talk with Mimecast about email filtering but it's hard to find someone that does web, email, and DLP together; it doesn't make sense to have 3 different vendors.
