Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint

Although I am not part of the original team that implemented the Websense/Forcepoint system I have made large scale changes to improve upon its efficiency and resolve performance issues due to incorrectly deployed parts of the system. My overall experience has been good. Forcepoint has come a long way with their product and the features being made available over the next couple of versions are exciting and needed. The Forcepoint team has been very good to work with and they have shown remarkable improvement in customer service and technical support.
Forcepoint is being used as our Web Security and DLP solution and that is across the whole organization.
  • It is a very complete solution that addresses a wide range of different security issues and it does it well.
  • Forcepoint's Technical Support is on the ball. They have improved greatly over the last 3 years.
  • The level of professionalism from Forcepoint really completes the picture.
  • I do have some issues with Forcepoint but they do listen to their customers. Many of our issues have been addressed.
  • It has a tremendous impact on the whole kill chain approach to security. It exists, when configured correctly, in all aspects of the kill chain.
Forcepoint stacks up pretty well against its competitors. It has more functionality then Cisco and is comparable to McAfee. McAfee is one of the few I would feel at ease with replacing our currently solution with.
For a complete Web Security solution this is a good choice. For a simple solution look elsewhere.
