Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention

Forcepoint DLP is used enterprise-wide at my company. We have the agent installed on every desktop/laptop that we own. Its primary usage is to stop data loss via USB storage devices. Being a financial company, we are very concerned about data loss from internal employees. Forcepoint has been able to help us track the movement of data to USB drives and block them.
  • Audit Data Transfers to USB
  • Block Data Transfers to USB
  • Policies can be difficult to create
  • Overwhelming amount of data is collected
  • Using Forcepoint we were able to stop a disgruntled employee from leaving with proprietary data.
  • Employees are aware that we are auditing their data transfers.
We didn't evaluate any other solutions at the time of purchase. Forcepoint was the leader on the Gartner report and we went with their recommendation.
Forcepoint support for DLP is pretty good. When we've had issues, they are usually able to help us.

Forcepoint DLP is ideal for companies that have dedicated IT staff to monitor it. There is a lot of data that is collected and it requires constant monitoring in order to determine whether or not people are moving data in or out of your environment. Creating policies, even test policies can be tricky in Forcepoint. A few times, we've created policies that we thought would only affect a small subset of users and instead they impacted the whole enterprise, so it's really important that a group/team of people really understand how to use this tool. If your company is concerned about data loss via USB, this is a good tool to use.
