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

"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."

"McAfee is helping us to clean all of the viruses from the machines, protecting our desktops from the latest threats.""If you set it up right, it can really manage a very complex environment which require fine tuning where there are a lot of exceptions. That's what it caters to. It can just do those specifics in those exceptional situations, which is good.""I really like the auditing component because it really looks at exactly what has happened on the network.""The most valuable features of this solution are the antivirus and the DLP.""The central manager policy means we have almost all client modules in one solution.""From a single dashboard, I can take a look at several things including the endpoint protection, the file integrity section, the data activity monitor, and more.""The central management console is the solution's most valuable aspect.""The graphical interface of the solution is its most valuable aspect."

"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."

"McAfee should improve in terms of customer support and assigning a knowledgeable TAM to customers.""While there are bugs and a few functionality issues, it is just a matter of raising them with the support team. However, support is part of the problem as well. You want everything to be seamless in a perfect world, but the support is spread across different countries. They have Level 1, 2, and 3. Level 1 is most likely in a developing country. They don't provide the best service.""They have to do something to make the solution more resilient or recoverable from power failure events, which may include creating their own database.""The Virtual Patching feature needs to be improved.""The detection aspect should be improved so that signatures are updated more quickly.""There is a problem when it comes to agent communication and duplicate records, where the rebooting of a machine leads to the installation of a new agent and you get a lot of duplicate records that ultimately affect your compliance monitoring.""There needs to be support for Mac computers. Currently, McAfee does not work on iOS.""The solution sometimes has some false positives on IP addresses, from the web control aspect of the product. This needs to be improved."

More Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Compared to other Antivirus products, the cost of this solution is a bit high.""McAfee tries to package different things into different products, then sell them as different products with different licenses. They just split everything up into multiple things. That's just their sales pitch and how they do it.""This solution is priced in the mid-range."
