Overall Satisfaction with Forcepoint Data Security Suite

Websense Data Security Suite was used to monitor users to detect transmission of company confidential documents. The DSS solution was fairly successful in this effort and helped us to detect many violations of our corporate policies. The cautions for this product are scalability and reliability. The DSS product seems to have issues scaling above 8000 to 10000 nodes.
  • Keyword matching is very good.
  • Large list of applications that can be monitored.
  • Reporting is very user friendly.
  • We had issues scaling the management environment to over 10,000 nodes.
  • We had many false positives with the fingerprinting technology.
  • The agent can be a large drag on endpoints.
  • Faster detection of insiders misusing corporate information.
Websense has similar features to other DLP solutions. We selected Websense based upon other organizations' experiences. I cannot compare the negatives to Websense as we did not deploy any other vendor DLP solutions in the same scale.
The product seems to be more suited to mid size and small businesses than to large enterprises.
