Forcepoint Web Security Suite is used to control access for our users to avoid access to personal storage and email in order to prevent sensitive data from being leaked outside of the organization along with blocking malicious websites. We have also deployed the endpoint solution on company laptops so they are protected outside of our organization as well.
  • Automatically syncs with the master database to have a current list of bad sites
  • Centralized management to all devices
  • Centralized configuration of Categories
  • Upgrade process
  • Support is sometimes slow to respond
  • The complexity of the configurations
Overall, I believe ForcePoint is a good solid product though there are some environments were other solutions work better and may be more cost-effective.

Forcepoint Web Security Suite Review: "Solid Web Security"

We use ForcePoint Web Security to help us get a handle on threats from web browsing as well as content and productivity concerns.
  • Customized Block Pages
  • AD Integration
  • None
We deployed it across the entire company. We are using just the Web Security Gateway portion of the product at this point. We use a 95% virtualized workstation environment (VDI). We were able to add the agent to all of our VDI clients before resynchronizing them and we used GPO to push out the agents to our physical devices. We are leveraging the cloud based system and it is working very well for us.
Our previous solution would not allow us to download at speeds greater than 1Mbps and ForcePoint allows us to leverage our full bandwidth.
It allows us to monitor and block web pages as necessary. We now only need to block on content and productivity since Forcepoint always scans the content. This is a specific distinction because many people block webpages due to risk and with Forcepoint, we don't have to worry about risk. We can focus on productivity factor of the websites instead.
Due to the flexibility of the product, I cannot imagine the product not being able to handle any scenario.

We've been a long time Web Gateway user. It is used for all web filtering across the enterprise both in the environment and for our remote users. The filtering provides both content filtering and security protection for our environment.
  • Software just works once installed, not a lot of hand-holding.
  • Good customer support over the phone.
  • Fantastic reports (both ad-hoc and generic out of the box ones).
  • The documentation is almost too detailed. Many times the same content is duplicated in many different documents.
  • Because it can do so much, upgrades can be complex.
Well suited for enterprise deployments. Endpoint protection is harder to roll out to production; remote web filtering has been the red-headed stepchild for us.

Forcepoint Web Security Suite Review: "Best on the market web proxy filtering product."

The Websense Web Security Suite was used in conjunction with the Websense Content Gateway proxy to provide a secure browsing environment for users. This allowed us to block unwanted categories and URLs from being browsed during company time as well as protecting users from real time threats such as malware and botnets.
  • Very good category setup for URLs
  • Protection from real time threats
  • Authentication so we know what users were going where and that they were legitimate users
  • Complex installation and full time management
  • Support times are lengthy unless you pay extra for MCS support
I believe every business should have some type of web security/filtering for their users. This will decrease time spent on sites that are not work related such as Facebook and YouTube while protecting them from the many real time threats on networks such as things like Crypto locker.
