Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security

Forcepoint Web Security is being used across the whole organization. It helps us solve problems if we need to restrict users from gaining access to the internet sites so that they don't click or browse sites that contain malicious links which would affect the entire organization. We use web security as a hybrid module [that] allows us to block access even when the user is outside of the organization.
  • It can be integrated with the DLP module
  • Hybrid capabilities
  • Can be integrated with Forcepoint AMD for sandboxing
  • Helps us to restrict access of unwanted sites
  • The hybrid agent should get updated automatically
  • Some sites are not proxy friendly, which causes issues
  • Time taken for the policy to sync in cloud

  • Value for money
  • Easy to install
  • Slow troubleshooting time by support
Forcepoint Web Security is well suited because it provides on-premises as well as cloud functionality, so instead of fully migrating to cloud we can have a few users on on-prem and few on cloud. It gets easy to identify which users should be on cloud or on-prem. It is always better to use a generic policy for everyone, otherwise it can cause issues while creating exceptions. The scenario where it is less appropriate is when there is a function where the agent can automatically get updated but when we do that, the agent does not get updated properly, which causes a lot of trouble as we need to uninstall the agent and then re-install it.
