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.

URL content filtering is used as a web proxy for URL content filtering to safeguard end-users accessing the web for web security. It addresses the user accessed malicious site and protection from infectious malware.

We use Websense Web Filter & Security to prevent users from accessing certain types of websites, set time quotas for certain types of sites such as shopping, prevent certain types of protocols and in general as a logging system to track how users are spending their time on the internet. It has been an extremely valuable IT & HR tool for our company.

We are using Websense (now Forcepoint) to both block and report on traffic for both our internal networks and our public network. The granular reporting is used both as a resource for HR when there are potential issues and also for tracking abusers of the public network by our security team. The filtering is used to keep inappropriate/NSFW content from being viewed and also helps us as a layer of our network security. We block all security and proxy related traffic and, whenever we receive a phishing or spam email with a link we add that url to our block list to help prevent accessing of corrupted or malicious domains.
