Forcepoint Email Security

Forcepoint Email Security is perfect for set and forget. Very little do I need to get in and that's to tailor a policy there are minimal issues I have encountered since using the product.

Fortinet FortiExtender

If you have Fortinet's SD-WAN solution, this might be the perfect backup solution, as we switch over to 4G in case our primary network fails by using these extenders. It works in around two or three seconds to establish the connection backup. Also we do use it daily as secondary link to utilize a mobile connection for non-business-critical tasks like PC patching so we don't have an affect on the primary link of the remote branches.

Pros

Forcepoint Email Security

  • URL sandbox
  • File sandbox
  • Spam filter
Guy Fridman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Fortinet FortiExtender

  • Direct integration and management through the Fortigate Firewalls we use.
  • Easy SD-Wan implementation in the Fortigate platform.
  • Can be installed in a separate area of the facility from the Firewalls, allowing the installation location to be determined by Signal, where a USB modem would have to be plugged directly into the Firewall at it's current location.

The support could be better, but the good thing is rarely having to call them.

Alternatives Considered

Forcepoint Email Security

Since Forcepoint is used widely in our organization, the integration between DLP web and Mail is amazing, and I didn’t find a good reason to split services between vendors if I have all the package in one place

Fortinet FortiExtender

By looking at the market of similar devices, we quickly recognized that Fortinet FortiExtenders are very reasonably priced; however, they provide top-level functionality that even some of the competitors don't have.

Return on Investment

Forcepoint Email Security

  • Even though Forcepoint solution is targeted high in terms of price, the added value it provides to an organization by securing their system in web and mail is tremendous

Fortinet FortiExtender

  • These devices have kept our cashiers collecting money when the internet goes out. Our Management loves hearing that nothing has stopped money from being collected.
  • It is also very useful to have an out-of-band source of connection for VPN use as well as ensuring IT alerting continues to function in the event of an ISP outage.
  • Direct management from within the Fortigate has made it very easy to monitor and has removed a bunch of devices from our regular upkeep and maintenance routines.
