What is Forcepoint ONE?

Forcepoint ONE is a cloud platform that enables users to adopt Zero Trust and Security Service Edge (SSE, the security component of SASE), unifying crucial security services, including Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).

The cloud-native, Zero Trust capabilities of Forcepoint ONE include:
  • Unified gateways for web, cloud, and private app access – Identity-based access control to business apps managed in one place for SWG, CASB, and ZTNA.
  • Agentless BYOD security for cloud and private apps
  • Safely use private business web apps from personal devices, while keeping sensitive data secure.
  • Integrated advanced threat protection and data security across all gateways prevent data loss or exfiltration and stop hackers from getting in.
  • Dynamic scalability with global access – 300 PoPs built on AWS for low-latency connectivity.

Unified security for web, cloud, and private apps
  • Web: SWG monitors and controls interactions with any website based on risk and category, blocking download of malware or uploads of sensitive data to personal file sharing and email accounts. Its on-device SWG enforces acceptable use policies on managed devices located anywhere.
  • Cloud: CASB enforces granular access to corporate SaaS apps and data from any device. CASB blocks download of sensitive data and blocks upload of malware in real time. It scans data at rest in popular SaaS and IaaS for malware and sensitive data and remediates as needed. CASB detects shadow IT apps and controls access from any managed device.
  • Private apps: ZTNA secures and simplifies access to private applications without the complication or risk associated with VPNs.

Security is a complex problem to solve in the current world. There are so many various tools/products which need to be used to achieve an optimal level of security within the organization. Cloud implementation, which many users think has less risk in security as this will be managed by the cloud providers, is a wrong misconception that has been understood by the large. The Forcepoint ONE solution is a single-pane solution that answers all the challenges we face in our current situation. In our case, we wanted to protect all the users/services (not devices) as users use various platforms to access the services; hence the deployment of Forcepoint ONE assisted us to achive this.
  • Streamline compliance policies.
  • Risk reduction.
  • Increase productivity.
  • Data access map dashboard provides a broader view.
  • Single pane to manage.
  • Integration with other firewall solutions.
  • Increase availability zones in mid east region to reduce latency.
It is very much suited for organizations that have a great consideration of protecting their data/assets. It is an expensive solution. Hence SMB segments require to find out something which can be similar to achive this. However, there are very few players in the market who has single pane configuration pane, which is one of the key benefits of Forcepoint ONE.
  • Single pane solution.
  • Risk reduction.
  • Streamlines compliance policies.
  • ROI for our industry has been positive as we hold very, very sensitive info which needs to be protected.
  • Solution like Forcepoint ONE is a very good solution.
  • We were in a better position to address our security audits using Forcepoint ONE easily.
Ease of use Microsoft Defender was a great product, but it looked like it is too risky to have only one vendor for all our needs. Fortinet has a lot of improvements to make to consider in the enterprise segment.

It adds extra layer of securities like and we have been using it for around 1 year and can say these are the major areas in which Forcepoint ONE helps our organization the most:
  1. User and entity behavior analytics,
  2. Threat detection and response,
  3. Security and compliance,
  4. Insider threat detection,
  5. Data loss prevention,
  6. Application control
  • Forcepoint ONE is particularly effective at identifying and blocking sophisticated threats, including those that attempt to evade detection by traditional security solutions.
  • The platform uses a combination of advanced analytics and human expertise to constantly monitor activity on networks and identify anomalies that may indicate an attempted attack that is why Forcepoint ONE can quickly block threats and prevent them from causing damage.
  • One area where Forcepoint ONE could improve is in its user interface. The interface is not particularly user-friendly, and can be confusing for users who are not familiar with it.
  • there are some features that are hard to use, or that are missing altogether. For example, there is no way to easily search for files or emails, and the interface for managing users and groups is not particularly intuitive.
  • It would be nice if Forcepoint ONE had better integration with other applications and services.
One scenario where Forcepoint ONE is well suited is when my organization wants to protect against data breaches and advanced threats. This solution can help my organization to quickly identify and respond to threats, as well as prevent sensitive data from leaving the organization.
A less ideal scenario for Forcepoint ONE would be if an organization is primarily concerned with compliance and regulatory requirements. While Forcepoint ONE can help with some compliance tasks, it is not designed to be a comprehensive compliance solution.
  • The most important features of Forcepoint ONE for me are its granular control over data and user activity.
  • Its ability to prevent data leakage,
  • Its comprehensive reporting capabilities.
  • There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the impact of Forcepoint ONE on a business's overall objectives will vary depending on the specific goals and objectives of that particular business.
  • However, in general, businesses that have implemented Forcepoint ONE have seen a positive impact on their overall objectives, with many reporting increased productivity, improved security, and reduced costs.
There are a few key reasons why we selected Forcepoint ONE over the other options:

  • First, Forcepoint ONE is the only platform that offers comprehensive security for users, data, and apps in a single solution. This is important because it allows us to have a more holistic view of our security posture and helps us to better understand and manage risk.
  • Second, Forcepoint ONE is the only platform that offers a true unified security platform, which means that it is able to provide more coordinated and effective protection. This is important because it helps us to reduce the overall number of security incidents and speeds up incident response times.
  • Third, Forcepoint ONE is the only platform that offers a complete set of features for each of the security domains (users, data, and apps). This is important because it allows us to tailor our security posture to our specific needs and helps us to ensure that we are properly protected against the latest threats.
  • Finally, Forcepoint ONE is the only platform that is truly easy to use and manage. This is important because it helps us to save time and resources, and allows us to focus on more important things.

Forcepoint One is used in our organization to protect the users and data in the office and out of the office when accessing the internet, cloud applications, and private applications (outside the organization) using a single platform, single console, and single agent. Forcepoint One solved the problem which compromised users when accessing malicious websites\phishing sites and protected all confidential data on the cloud applications from sharing and downloading.
  • Secure Web Gateway to protect users when accessing the internet from web-borne threats.
  • Zero Trust Network Access to provide secure access to private applications from remote locations.
  • CASB protects unauthorized access to data on the cloud applications from users and malware.
  • There is no need for improvement in the solution. The solution is built with all the required features and capabilities that are required for a security service edge solution.
Forcepoint one is suited for the organization where a hybrid workspace environment is used, which protects the users and data everywhere and anywhere. Forcepoint one will not be suited for the organization, which does not have a remote workspace. Only on-premise is used, and no cloud applications have been used and are not allowed access to private applications outside the organization.
  • Secure Web Gateway.
  • Zero Trust Network Access.
  • Cloud Access Security Broker.
  • Forcepoint One provides single platform which covers 3 areas, SWG, ZTNA and CASB.
  • Forcepoint single console and single agent to protect users and data.
  • Provides single policy management for all 3 foundational gateways.
Forcepoint One provides protection from advanced threats on all three foundational gateways (SWG, ZTNA, CASB) from a single platform, single console, and single agent. Forcepoint one provides its native IDP for the applications with SSO, and also it can be integrated by third-party IDP providers too. Forcepoint one provides CSPM and SAAS security Posture Management features too.
