Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

We have Forcepoint web security deployed across the whole organization, worldwide with over 350 active endpoints. It provides a very effective defense against everything malicious the web has to offer. Also, it provides us with critical metrics of what types of sites users are visiting and for how long it also enables us to do content and keyword blocking of sites and time-based locking of common sites, eg. social media, this can be achieved very granularly via Active Directory integration.
  • Blocks malicious and compromised websites.
  • Provides a raft of customizable detailed metrics.
  • Provides very easy to implement content filtering of which there is a lot of default framework ready to go.
  • The endpoint software at times can be a little glitchy.
  • Would be good to be able to temporarily disable the filter via the client for troubleshooting and admin purposes.
  • Would be good to be able to manually set a Geo location for better response.
  • Reduces workload on IT Department so more time can be spent pro-actively.
  • Provides board-level metrics easily.
  • Another arrow in the security quiver.
We have evaluated Sophos, however, it proved to be overly complex to manage and administer compared to the Forcepoint solution.
Due to the diverse and roaming demography of our users, Forcepoint suits us with its global flexibility and its ease of use, endpoint and web interface management, and deployment. Providing trends and user habits has been great for reports to the business, as well as defense security blocking reports presented at board reporting intervals.
