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. It’s equipped with more than 120 security and web filtering categories, hundreds of web application and protocol controls, and 60-plus reports with customization and role-based access.

  • We have been able to curb user habits through HR and through the built in quotas for certain website categories, which has led to less user surfing time.
  • We have seen certain types of potentially malicious websites blocks where users have clicked on something unaware and been prevented from accessing based on certain types of protocol blocks IT put in place.
  • We have also been able to monitor bandwidth usage per user and when we had spikes on our network saturation reports from our ISP, we could tell who was causing the usage issue and address it with the individual, which allowed to determine if we needed to scale up with additional bandwidth or if we just had a user(s) hogging all the bandwidth for streaming media and causing a false sense of usage for the company as a whole. This has saved us money by allowing us to maintain the right size pipes with our ISP.

  • The websense filtering has helped us to reduce and eliminate productivity losses from some gaming and streaming services.
  • We have been able to lower our liability from illegal streaming services and also adult content viewing (and also reduced the internet uses related to those services).
  • The filtering service has helped us to prevent virus spread on the network and also helped as a layer to pinpoint affected endpoints, that had gone unnoticed by our antivirus solution. By alerting to those early infections, we can quarantine the device before the infection spreads or affects other endpoints.
  • The solution has given the HR department reporting they needed when employees were under review without having to pull any local logs or have any local solutions installed.
  • The hybrid client has worked well in a few remote offices, meaning we didn't need a separate proxy service to filter and protect that traffic.
