Product Details

What is Forcepoint DLP?

Forcepoint DLP promises to address human-centric risk by providing visibility and control everywhere your people work and everywhere your data resides. Security teams apply user-risk scoring to focus on the events that matter most and to accelerate compliance with global data regulations.

The vendor promises these benefits:
  • Accelerate compliance
  • Empower people to protect data
  • Advanced detection and controls that follow the data

RESPOND AND REMEDIATE RISK
Traditional approaches to DLP overload users with false positives while missing data at risk. Forcepoint DLP applies advanced analytics to correlate seemingly unrelated DLP events into prioritized incidents. Incident Risk Ranking (IRR) provided with Forcepoint DLP fuses disparate DLP indicators into a framework of Bayesian belief networks to assess the likelihood of data risk scenarios, such as data theft and broken business processes.

VISIBILITY EVERYWHERE YOUR PEOPLE WORK, CONTROL EVERYWHERE YOUR DATA RESIDES
Today’s enterprises are challenged with complicated environments, where data is everywhere and requires the protection of data in places that aren’t managed or owned by the enterprise. Forcepoint DLP for Cloud Applications extends analytics and DLP policies to critical cloud applications so your data is protected, wherever it resides.

Ws are using this product to prevent data from leakage from internal environment to outside public environment. We have deployed this product on all internal systems via endpoints and also on our email server. This product captures DLP incidents with very less false positives and it is very good in functionality.We can easily deploy policies and it has a easy to use interface.

We are using Forcepoint DLP for preventing users from intentionally or unintentionally leaking data from the organization whether they are in office premises or working from home or working from branch offices or working from elsewhere. We restrict users to upload business-critical data to a website, USB device or even through any application.

Our entire organization depends on Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention to protect our valuable data on Cloud, server and on-premises. Powerful tool that helps to protect data at rest, data in-motion and data in use giving us the visibility and control to every abnormal activity by the user within our networked environment.

Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is a data loss prevention software and due to the nature of this category, this tool is used as a web proxy all across our organization. It is used enterprise-wide in my organization. This tool has been installed on all of the PCs, laptops, and servers that we own. This software has ensured us how and when people are attempting to print, store, and even share data with potentially unauthorized teams.

Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is [being] used across [the] organization to safeguard the sending of sensitive data outside the organization. We solve problems where users should not be able to send any company information for their personal use, such as sending files [that] are not sensitive but still the company's data. Also, we have to monitor what incidents are triggered by the endpoint for us to keep track, monitoring incidents through images using OCR, and using risk score to get the details of which user tried to violate the policy more often, even if it was blocked for him.

Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is exceptional and has pleased me and IT. So far it has only been implemented at our headquarters. And the biggest problem we had was the fear of data leakage through corporate equipment and devices. This Forcepoint DLP solution now protects critical data through encryption and prevents information theft from our devices, even in cases of theft, where we create action plans to execute in those cases. Along with other tools, it has improved our information security and we are happy with this product.

The Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention solution has been used throughout our organization's region. There are two main problems to be solved with Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention: the first is protecting critical data on employee devices, such as smartphones, pen drives, and notebooks, regardless of their location, and the second is strengthening web security with resources for endpoint protection, with web content filtering, email security, and proxy. The experience has been positive and my team and I are enjoying it; security has been improved and problems have decreased.

We are a solutions provider to our clients who are facing compliance and security issues. There are multiple modules in Forcepoint and we recommend clients start their data loss prevention journey with Forcepoint Endpoint Data Loss Prevention and later on to move to Forcepoint Network Data Loss Prevention. Forcepoint Endpoint Data Loss Prevention takes time to be established in the client environment and multiple policy fine-tunings are required to remove the false positives. We also recommended starting the data loss prevention journey with a small fraction of users--say 50 and 100 users at the initial level.

We are currently using it on the Security team to track data exfiltration. We also allow Data Custodians from different departments to review incidents to point out anything suspicious.

Forcepoint is used as a web proxy across the vast majority of the organization. The DLP product is used to monitor how and when people attempt to print, store or share data with potentially unauthorized parties. The DLP product is then used to warn people about the potential impacts that such behavior has.

Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is used across the organization. As a financial institution it is imperative that we take steps to insure customer data and ensure that when sensitive data leaves the organization it is done in a secure manner for sound business purposes. Forcepoint DLP is one of the tools we use to flag attachments and messages that may contain customer PII or proprietary information. Mistakes happen, so educating users is not an adequate preventive control.

Forcepoint DLP is used enterprise-wide at my company. We have the agent installed on every desktop/laptop that we own. Its primary usage is to stop data loss via USB storage devices. Being a financial company, we are very concerned about data loss from internal employees. Forcepoint has been able to help us track the movement of data to USB drives and block them.

My organization uses Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention across the organization to address PHI stored in the organization. The use of Forcepoint DLP has helped us discover the actual location where PHI resides and how the user shares the PHI. We are able to set a threshold on the amount of PHI to share externally and it will trigger the alarm to the administrator for further review.

We are currently using Forcepoint as our URL filtering solution. This takes a lot of the research out of whether a site should be accessed or not especially with the real-time filter enabled. Most our access out to the internet is blocked before we are even aware that there is an issue with the site. and can just be rendered a non-issue.

Although I am not part of the original team that implemented the Websense/Forcepoint system I have made large scale changes to improve upon its efficiency and resolve performance issues due to incorrectly deployed parts of the system. My overall experience has been good. Forcepoint has come a long way with their product and the features being made available over the next couple of versions are exciting and needed. The Forcepoint team has been very good to work with and they have shown remarkable improvement in customer service and technical support.
Forcepoint is being used as our Web Security and DLP solution and that is across the whole organization.

Websense is used in implementing endpoint DLP, as a content gateway, a web filter, a URL filter and also e-mail security. It provides real-time scanning of websites and caching both of which are really important features to us at our organization. Overall [it's] easy to navigate (user-friendly) and has a UI with a few issues here and there, but still we are happy with the product.

We currently use Websense to protect our web and data security channels. We have a number of Websense proxies deployed world wide protecting users in both large and small offices. Using Websense allowed us to add security to our internet bound traffic while securing our IP and keeping our bandwidth costs down from users browsing non-work related sites.
