Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Web Security Suite

We use ForcePoint Web Security to help us get a handle on threats from web browsing as well as content and productivity concerns.
  • Customized Block Pages
  • AD Integration
  • None
  • The low cost and high value was great for our ROI
  • Cisco Web Security and zscaler
zScaler is a solid product but the price point is a bit steep. They are very similar in the way that they function.

Cisco Web Security was our previous product and that was inferior compared to FWSS and it cost more during its maintenance renewal than FWSS during an installation.

Overall FWSS is able to handle everything that we've needed it to do and it has provided a seamless installation.
We deployed it across the entire company. We are using just the Web Security Gateway portion of the product at this point. We use a 95% virtualized workstation environment (VDI). We were able to add the agent to all of our VDI clients before resynchronizing them and we used GPO to push out the agents to our physical devices. We are leveraging the cloud based system and it is working very well for us.
Our previous solution would not allow us to download at speeds greater than 1Mbps and ForcePoint allows us to leverage our full bandwidth.
It allows us to monitor and block web pages as necessary. We now only need to block on content and productivity since Forcepoint always scans the content. This is a specific distinction because many people block webpages due to risk and with Forcepoint, we don't have to worry about risk. We can focus on productivity factor of the websites instead.
Due to the flexibility of the product, I cannot imagine the product not being able to handle any scenario.
