Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

We deployed the solution all across the whole organization. We have about 30 WCGs and 20 locations using cloud proxy. Forcepoint Endpoint helped us to protect computer and laptops from threats.
We set up a hierarchy inside Forcepoint Security Manager, to grant access of each defined location/company to the respective IT department.
  • URL filtering.
  • Scalability of the management.
  • Easy way to update endpoints.
  • Middle East area (where Government blocks traffic to your local PoP).
  • China area (where you don't have local PoP so it's impossible to point to cloud proxy out of China, because traffic hits the Great Firewall and traffic is sometimes blocked for secured connections).
  • Support expertise.
  • Securing all endpoints in these days is a great goal
  • We standardize the solution on the entire group
  • We saved money centralizing the solution
Forcepoint permits out-of-office protection, and the adoption of an endpoint is a good hit for reaching this.
It suits well on site offices, using cloud proxy defining the filtered location.

As above, worst scenarios of implementation are countries where government intercepts and modifies secured connections.
In those locations we had to disable cloud proxy and permits access using only local Content Gateways.

Also for VPN users, to grant them to accesso to Gsuite, we set up to allow them to use office Internet line to access this service.
