Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

Used across the whole organization as the sole web filtering platform. Allows us the peace of mind in insuring that our users only access approved web categories and that they remain safe when browsing the internet whilst on the corporate network.
Forcepoint web filtering policies allow us the flexibility needed to tailor the end users experience according to company policy.
  • Web category filtering.
  • Governance and compliance.
  • Investigative reporting.
  • Real time monitoring on the cloud platform would be good to have.
  • Less administrative overhead when configured.
  • Nothing negative to say.
  • Security concerns have been lowered and user acceptance.
We chose Forcepoint Web security over other vendors as it is the best in its class in my opinion. It is used by a number of large organizations and government agencies and it has enormous expansion/integration capabilities with other modules e.g. CASB, DLP which all play a massive role in the protection, compliance and governance of the ever changing infrastructure landscape.
Without disclosing too much information Forcepoint Web Security is well suited in HR related issues where performance management/productivity or breach of internet use policy is questioned. The reporting can be very granular and damming for individuals being investigated.
It is less appropriate for real-time monitoring as this is not possible at this point in time from what I understand.
