Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

In our company we have over 3,000 employees and due to current circumstances with Covid-19 most of our employees are working from home or remotely. We use Forcepoint to keep our users secure. We use Forcepoint Web Security across our whole organization. Forcepoint addresses the problem with the blocking of bad/unwanted websites that may have malicious software. I'm actually glad to have Forcepoint installed in our organization. It definitely helps me sleep better at night.
  • Bock URL.
  • Whitelist websites.
  • Protect users from anywhere they are connected.
  • Reporting.
  • Executive summary.
  • Notification to administrator.
  • Good investment, given the many websites it has been blocking.
  • Return on Investment is different from company to company and hard to pinpoint an exact amount, however, keeping 3000 employees from going to websites not work related you can only imagine the amount of non-productive hours it is saving the company.
  • You can also see the ROI in the time it saves the IT dept. from dealing with computer issues cause by malicious websites.
The only other product that I have used does not stack up against Forcepoint at all. Given that they aren't nearly as powerful as Forcepoint.
Forcepoint all the way around is a very good web security tool. In my opinion is well suited for organizations that have multiple remote sites in the states and around the world. Given that you can manage the whole organization from the cloud, I believe a company will benefit from using Forcepoint web security. Scenarios where it may be less appropriate and the company could possibly save money by going with something simpler, could be a small company. A single office company with no remote users. I strongly believe Forcepoint will still work well for this type of companies, however the company would not be taking advantage of all the Forcepoint Web Security benefits.
