Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

We use FP Web Security at the whole organization, it provides a high level of security in the web browsing of users, decreasing the number of computers infected by malicious software, in addition to providing controlled access to resources that users require. It also helps us to comply with regulations regarding the protection of information from our customers and users.
  • It has a very good level of detection of malicious software which helps our equipment to remain protected.
  • It has very accurate DLP detection engines that help facilitate the implementation of this type of policy.
  • Realizes a categorization of the websites in a very adequate and fast way, allowing you to manage the access to multiple categories of sites for each user or group of users.
  • It has multiple forms of administration of web access, based on schedules, available bandwidth, whether the user is in the corporate network or not, etc.
  • Improve or enable the DLP integration for the cloud solution in a more transparent way.
  • Add integration options with MDM providers for filtering on mobile devices.
  • In a short period of time it is reflected positively by increasing the available time of the security team.
  • It can also be reflected in the time users spend surfing the Internet on sites not related to work.
We have tested the web filtering of Fortinet and Checkpoint, and these have a smaller number of web categories available to control access in policies, with Forcepoint having a greater capacity for personalization, in addition to this and, even more importantly, we have seen that users of Forcepoint both in our company and in others do not present cases (or very few) of computer infections due to web access, however, other users of other brands have on average a greater number of these problems.
In any scenario that requires a high level of security for web traffic, Forcepoint is a very good option. Perhaps if the need is just a simple web filtering there are other options. If the DLP protection for web traffic is a high requirement, then Forcepoint Web Security will be one of the best options.
