Pros
It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability.In Digital Guardian, they have the cloud correlation servers that give you visibility work like EBR and the correlation server works very well for security analysis.The technical support is really terrific.

The product is good and reliable. The vendor company is continually improving it and they seem to stay one step ahead.The solution offers very good sensitive data protection.It's fast and it prepares loss reports.After the configuration, it is very stable, and in the last two years, I haven't been faced with many issues or product-related challenges.The fingerprinting technology is the solution's most valuable feature. It's unique to Forcepoint.Another valuable feature is that it provides integration to things like Cloud Access Security Broker, which provides security around cloud applications.The ease of configuration was probably one of its biggest selling points.We don't require a lot of downtime, but when we do then we are getting proper support with no issue.

Cons
There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great.The room for improvement with Digital Guardian is that it will be better with the Linux agent because it is the only DLP solution for Linux workstations. It still needs to upgrade the agents to the latest version for the Linux kernel.I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated.

Everything can be improved and maybe there is a way to improve the user experience through the interface.It would be wonderful if the solution could develop more AI and machine learning capabilities. It would also be good if the solution was able to integrate with other ML and AI solutions. Right now, this is lacking.The protection of personal data needs to be improved.The initial setup is a bit complex. You will need help from the peer support team in the configuration.There's zero Forcepoint presence in West Africa. Customers typically like having these things close to them. It would help if they had a presence here. Right now, Forcepoint West Africa has been administered from South Africa. Because of this, customers can't access premium support in our region.I am really impressed by the interface and management console but the requirements are very high and the response time is too slow.I can't push a report by a certain organizational entity or unit without a lot of work. The reporting could be better.There is no support for the Bangla (Bengali) language, so we cannot use the Forcepoint technology for Bangla documents.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions.If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price.

Overview

Digital Guardian Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP) protects sensitive data on all your endpoints. It protects intellectual property and personal information. An endpoint agent that captures and records all system, user and data events on or off the network. It has a granular control of all data movement that can be configured to automatically block, justify or encrypt sensitive data in or attached to email, files moved to removable drives, cloud storage, or web - malware and malware-free - before sensitive data is lost. It has a built-in advanced data classification that creates and modifies classification and usage policies through content inspection, context-awareness and user classification. It provides design policies with controls that won't block actions that comply with corporate policy so employees remain productive while the data stays safe.

Forcepoint DLP addresses human-centric risk with visibility and control everywhere your people work and everywhere your data resides. Security teams apply user-risk scoring to focus on the events that matter most and to accelerate compliance with global data regulations.
