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

Pros
"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.""Forcepoint has been the leader in the space for many years and they, are very well established, and mature.""Regardless of the size of your company, this solution can be scaled accurately.""The most valuable feature is the endpoint DLP. It's specific to copying to the USB or copying to the internal storage in our office."

"The auto-labeling feature is definitely the most valuable feature. It goes in and labels the documents for you in different repositories. It covers the Outlook and Exchange repositories along with SharePoint and OneDrive. It is really helpful in those areas."

Cons
"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.""The price could be reduced to be more cost, effective.""This solution has a tendency to provide false-positive results.""In terms of display, the support and the Mac platform requires a lot of improvement."

"There is a lot of ambiguity when you are setting up labels, such as sensitive information labels. It is a little daunting at first if you don't have prior knowledge, and there is a little bit of a learning curve for setting up the labels. Some of the setup wizards could be more helpful from an AI perspective. They can streamline the setup through more AI technologies so that you don't have to jump through so many hoops and different menus and dropdowns. It would be useful to have a setup wizard that is more hands-off and engaging for setting up the information type labels. If you tell them this is what we're trying to protect, it should basically start to lead you down that path of best practices. Such a feature would be great."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I prefer Forceoint because it is cheaper than Symantec.""The cost for the product for our use is less than $10 per user.""Forcepoint DLP is a bit expensive.""Its pricing is quite low considering the features they are offering. As compared to other solutions, it is reasonable. They do have professional support. If we need professional support, then there will be additional costs.""The licensing of Forcepoint is quite straightforward. It's based on the number of users. The support fees are a separate cost."

"It is a part of our Microsoft licensing. We pay for a yearly renewal. Its price is reasonable for the size of the organization we are. It is fairly competitive, and you get what you pay for. We have an E5 license, and a part of understanding the E5 license is to see what all you get with it. If you really look at it from that standpoint, you get a lot of value. You have Defender and all its security features in there as well. Their licensing is fairly flexible. They have different programs. We've seen ones where you could pay for up to three to five years in advance. There is also a monthly pay-as-you-go type of deal, but we're doing a yearly renewal and fixing the budget."
