Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall Review

Straightforward to install and has good local support, but the throughput and integration with other products should be improved


What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution as our corporate firewall.

What is most valuable?

This solution is quite good.

What needs improvement?

It's a good firewall but we are looking for features that are available in Palo Alto.

My team is looking for more throughput and better integration with our security framework. Better integration with other platforms would be an improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

 We have been using Forcepoint Next Generation Firewall for one year.

We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Forcepoint is stable and we plan to continue using it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product. We have approximately 300 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We can get local support, which has been okay so far.

The people we deal with is a local partner in Cambodia and we can get good support from them.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was not an issue for us.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team did it with the help of our local partner.

We have three or four IT people who take care of deployment and maintenance.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are still evaluating other products such as Palo Alto.

One of our goals is to minimize the number of different vendors that we have. Ideally, we would like to have a firewall and security solution with good performance from a single vendor, with a single management console.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
