What is Forcepoint URL Filtering?

Forcepoint URL Filtering is an effective, continually up-to-date web filtering solution. The vendor says that Forcepoint URL Filtering, powered by ThreatSeeker Intelligence, collects and analyzes up to 5 billion incidents every day (from over 155 countries), producing updated threat analytics for Forcepoint solutions at up to 3.2 updates per second.

Forcepoint URL Filtering promises to block web threats to reduce malware infections, decrease help desk incidents and provide relief to valuable IT resources. The vendor says Forcepoint URL Filtering is an easy-to-deploy, transparent filter and security solution that avoids the complexity of a proxy gateway.

This software is extremely well suited to environments that want to prevent certain categories of website access for their users or do reporting on internet usage. An HR person will need technical assistance in making sense of most of the reports and analyzing what the data in the reports actually means, so for companies without an IT person in house that can explain such things, I think this software would be challenging for HR reporting purposes use only.

If you need granular user and computer reporting, Websense is very reliable. It will provide strong protection and filtering once set up. If you aren't savvy with the technology involved, engage support early in your configuration, as it is complicated. The hybrid mobile client works well for your laptop users that you need protected and reporting out in the real world, but again is complicated to initially set up. Once you get it set up, the websense product is very solid. If you don't need the reporting and don't need it to be accurate to the person/computer, then it is more inline with the web filtering offered integrated by the various firewall providers out there and you can decide whether you want to have a separate appliance for web filtering or have it as part of the all in one firewall solution.
