Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Data Guard

We advise and implement Forcepoint Data Guard for our clients belonging to various industry types - Financial, Healthcare, cross, consumer etc. It is currently being used by our client's protected network which is segmented and follows strict Zero Trust policies. One of the major problems that it is solving is enabling transmission of sensitive data between 2 LAN / other secure networks. It acts as an added layer of security with Firewalls, Proxies etc
  • Integrates extremely well with client's SIEM environment
  • Secure Data transfer / bidirectional
  • Syslog capabilities which helps us to parse the logs well enough
  • Less time / Fast
  • I wonder if we can think of integrating it with Firewall Rule Management solutions like Tufin, not sure if API supports or not.
  • Custom Reporting capabilities tailored for CISO/GISO level client folks
  • Automation /ease of custom scripting - assistance from Forcepoint support for the same
  • Since we are from cyber security, we are engaged in a multi-year relationship with clients that are interested in deploying ForcePoint.
  • We have been strong pipeline in our current PoVs for European clients that are interested in this solution. They just want extended support to deploy it end-to-end
  • Less costly training mandates, good training material available on the net
1) Good satisfactory overall support
2) Relatively straight forward installation
3) Data Security
4) Cloud support which is big plus / multi cloud as well. Most of the clients are also very intelligent since they refer Gartner and other reports for statistical data. They do their homework well in advance hence we have to make sure we know the product well
