Cons
I would like to either see the price reduced or have it packaged with other products to give better value for the money.The initial setup could be a bit easier.The reports need to be improved. We need to have them customized but they don't have that right now. I would like for them to have better system predictions. We don't have that right now. My system may be working fine right now but after making some changes, that can change.

If I want to allow access to Facebook, yet not allow the user to access videos, then I am not able to do it with this product.They should have a local vendor who can provide support. Most of the support is overseas, so the time zones can be a problem.Forcepoint would be improved if there were more training available.Making this solution easier to use would be an improvement.The solution's support could use improvement.The optimization is not really ready. If you want very good optimization, you have to add it to the network.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of custom reporting.They should have a GUI on the product itself, not a separate management tool to be used on the management server or on a server to be used to manage the file. It should be all in one device. The device should be controlled through its own GUI. They also have to improve the learning center and the documents as the documents don't really help.

Pricing and Cost Advice
As NetScaler is now, I find it quite pricey.It's a little bit on the high side compared to the other products.

It is expensive.Forcepoint is very expensive but it's really secure.We would love to take other solution from Forcepoint, but unfortunately the price is too high. That's why we are not considering using Forcepoing for our proxy and DLB. They have a very good DLB, but the matter in the end is the cost.I believe the licensing fee is for one year, three years, and five years, or something like that. If you wants to increase the support level from a simpler level to platinum, I think that there's a cost. There are differences between every kind of support, but I don't know the numbers.The big advantage of this solution is that we can select the right model for our requirements, which is not too expensive.
