Forcepoint Web Security Review

Incident lists don’t sync between appliances, though filtering and monitoring work well


What is our primary use case?

Primary use is as web proxies for a government agency.

How has it helped my organization?

This product improved the security of web traffic in our environment.

What is most valuable?

Most valuable features were content filtering and monitoring. As a government agency, it is highly important that the internet is being used for appropriate reasons and we need to track inappropriate behavior.

What needs improvement?

There were several issues with the product.

  • Version 8.4 can only be managed with a CLI, they removed the nice GUI interface from version 8.1. 
  • The load-balancing needs massive improvements.
  • The incident lists don’t sync between appliances, they need to be manually edited for each one.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
