Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

We have been using Websense for years for web filtering in our offices and some remote locations, and recently upgraded to the Forcepoint Web Security product. It was really easy to implement and deploy and works as advertised. It addressed our concern of people accessing websites they shouldn't be accessing on their workstations and helps prevent malware/viruses at the same time.
  • Easy to deploy.
  • Support is great.
  • Cost-effective solution.
  • The GUI is a little confusing and could use some cleaning up.
  • Updates are good generally, but there seem to be too many updates for this product.
  • When uninstalling, it leaves the system proxy settings enabled, forcing a manual fix.
  • Helps keep malware/viruses out of our workstations.
  • Helps keep our employees productive.
  • Decreases negative internet traffic.
We have not used any other web filters except for when this product was Websense, and it worked well for us for years. We just switched to Forcepoint due to the age of the old product, and we are trying to move to using more cloud-based solutions in our company.
Forcepoint was a cost-effective solution for web filtering, so it's best suited for any business small or large. It's easy to learn and deploy, so even if you aren't familiar with such solutions it won't be hard for you to figure out how to set it up and use it.
