We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"It has also improved our hunt ability with quick search tools, to zone in on malware or other anomalies. It is able to link items to incidents from other consoles, and works natively with the SIEM.""It has a rating system now so you can rate things up or down, depending on your environment. This means alerting can be customized, yet still pick up anomalies.""Reporting is great, it is easy to do a quick search through 45 days of data for something of interest.""After rack and stack, devices were up and running base configurations within two hours. As with any IPS, tuning is required to stop false positives. This is no different, but the ease of use of the interface allowed my team to start making adjustments within a few hours.""The initial setup is very straightforward. The deployment of the server doesn't take so long; about a day or two max.""What I like the most about this solution is the complexity. It covers a lot of areas, unlike other solutions.""Compared to similar solutions, it's quite scalable. You just need to add more storage to scale-up."

"The ease of configuration was probably one of its biggest selling points.""Another valuable feature is that it provides integration to things like Cloud Access Security Broker, which provides security around cloud applications.""The fingerprinting technology is the solution's most valuable feature. It's unique to Forcepoint.""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.""It's fast and it prepares loss reports.""The solution offers very good sensitive data protection.""The product is good and reliable. The vendor company is continually improving it and they seem to stay one step ahead.""The GUI is very intuitive. That is the way I would explain its ease of use. It is straightforward."

"The interface bug needs to be squashed once and for all. This has been the predominant issue with an otherwise stellar product. It reboots itself unscheduled, about once a month, due to a memory buffer flaw in the interface.""We position the solution as an antivirus, but this part of the solution needs improvement. They need to generally enhance the features that they have, rather than adding anything new.""The reports in the endpoint area of Elevate can be improved.""Configuration, in terms of building the collector and communicating with endpoints, is complex."

More Fidelis Elevate Cons »

"I can't push a report by a certain organizational entity or unit without a lot of work. The reporting could be better.""I am really impressed by the interface and management console but the requirements are very high and the response time is too slow.""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.""The initial setup is a bit complex. You will need help from the peer support team in the configuration.""The protection of personal data needs to be improved.""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.""Everything can be improved and maybe there is a way to improve the user experience through the interface.""Usually for the biome of a small company, like 50 users, setup takes more than one week."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You license by the number of days of logs you need to maintain visibility for. Forty-five days is a good solid number for a company with around a 10k user base.""It's quite expensive but we can customize it to reduce the price."
