Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

We use it across the entire organization. Primarily the secure gateway and DLP modules of the solution. We primarily filter access to internet sites and control data flow across our various channels(HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc). We do not use data classification or crawling.

Pros

  • HTTPS Decryption
  • Filtering

Cons

  • Endpoint Agent is frequently buggy
  • Identification of clients is cumbersome in a mixed environment
  • Increased web security position
  • Increased SMI exfiltration protection
Cisco Umbrella
OpenDNS

Forcepoint was originally one of the few vendors to offer a SSL decrypting proxy that also had DLP functionality, which we felt was a critical need for any solution that we used.
Forcepoint does well in filtering and DLP scenarios, however, the interface is frequently difficult to work with. There have been some improvements made the last few years under the 8.x codebase but having recently reviewed some demos with competing products, such as Cisco's Umbrella, there is still a VERY long way to go. Detailed reporting on files is non-existent, and some detailed web reports are very difficult to read or navigate through.
