Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

Earlier we were using the URL filtering from other Firewall vendors for our web security but we were so many challenges with that as it had so many categorization issues. Sports sites were getting blocked in the Movies category and some unwanted URLs were not getting blocked. Our users were facing many problems in their daily tasks. Then we decided to go ahead with Forcepoint Web Security and trust me it was life-changing decision for our infra. First, it got installed in our Data Center on-premises and their categorization is just perfect. After implementing it, we got our web security covered and users didn't face any issues after that.
  • Categorization
  • Real-time security updates for threat protection
  • It has a centralized granular policy controls
  • Content Filtering
  • Customer Support
  • Scalability and throughput
  • Documentation availability
  • Pricing should be bit lower
  • Perfect categorization and content filtering helped agents to work flawlessly which increased their productivity
  • Web related issue tickets were less which improved the IT engineers efficiency as they started focusing on other issues/troubleshooting
  • During any problem with it, Customer support was not up to the mark as expected
  • Deployment flexibility as it can be installed on premises, cloud or hybrid
Forcpoint Web Security keeps my organization's users safe from malicious threats, including zero-day threats. It protects against zero-day threats with real-time threat intelligence and remote browser isolation, and provides deep content inspection for encrypted and unencrypted traffic to detect evolving threats across the entire kill chain. It provides consistent policies with robust access control for all our sites, cloud apps, and corporate/remote users.
Forcepoint Web Security is a suited solution for all the kinds of organizations who are accessing the web internet, be it small size, mid-size or larger organizations. Its content filtering feature is just awesome which is not available with other vendors. If you want to allow Sports category and block movie category on the same URL (youtube) then this kind of scenario can be achieved by Forcepoint Web Security. It has intuitive management and reporting and the largest intel database.
