Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

Currently Forcepoint Web Security is used to monitor and protect 50,000 users for a large state agency. This is used to keep our employees protected from emerging threats as well as controlling non business related web requests filtered to ensure safety and compliance.
  • Very good filtering and deep packet inspection for SSL
  • ICAP support for Data Loss Prevention
  • Protection of Web email Channels for loss.
  • Complex Management require full time
  • Better license model, too much like Cisco with multi licenses.
  • Business productivity increased due to lessening "play" time on the internet
  • Better security posture with Forcepoint.
We leverage the Forcepoint cloud and endpoint to filter both onsite and remote users. This allows users to get the same policy when traveling or remote without having to be connected to a VPN constantly.
Threat detection has gone up over 20% with Forcepoint ACE since it was deployed over Cisco Web Security.
Forcepoint Content Gateway was surperb in every way over Cisco Web Security Appliance and provided better protection with better customization.
Of all the proxy products I have tested Forcepoint is on top, better than Cisco Web or Blue Coat.
