It's very stable, reliable and does its job.
The weekly reportings are great. The investigation is super and the application management is equally great.
It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy.
The most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection.
It will protect, give you more robustness, and faster responses, compared to any firewalls or any of the proxy web servers.
The most valuable features are the protection against ransomware and phishing.
The most valuable feature is that it secures our network against blacklisted or malicious websites.
Using this solution has meant that we've needed to make fewer firewall changes.
The spam filter is very effective.
The antiviral sandboxing.
Once deployed, the management console is simple and easy to use.
For the most part, the solution, when set up correctly, works fine.
The most valuable feature is the categorization, where you can allow general access to an application but limit specific features.
In terms of functionality, Forcepoint is the best web proxy available.
The most valuable feature of Forcepoint Web Security is creating the easy to install further policies that are deployed through the Forcepoint security manual at some stage. Just drag and drop and the policies are there.
It has protected clients against cyberattacks.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the granularity for which you can categorize what you want to block versus what you don't want to block.
With the model we have, we are able to scale very easily if we need to.
The most important features for us are preventing DDOS DNS attacks.
It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites.
The reporting could be improved by way of the information that's displayed. For example, when you pull a report, it shows an internal employee going to many websites, but you can spin that right down by saying a lot of it is being cached.
I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.
This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.
It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM.
I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network.
Support for multiple domains is important to us.
I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution.
We have a lot of false positives, which is one area that can be improved.
Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through.
In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device.
Overall the software is occupying too much memory space. If they could remedy that, it would be a better experience, because today Windows is occupying too much memory space as well (in terms of the RAM), and this software has also started occupying all the memory. Due to this, I have less space for my other office products and data. I can't, for example, operate a huge Excel sheet or other datasets.
The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do.
The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond.
The firewall doesn't have any features because some customers are requesting they will install the firewall without licensing. At this time we cannot go further without licensing. Licensing is a must with Forcepoint Web Security firewalls.
Ease of use could be improved.
We would like to see more reporting capabilities that are now offered only with the on-premises reporting appliance.
The dashboard and reporting features need improvement. The user needs more informative dashboards so they can get to the results directly without getting deep in the report to get to the information.
Endpoint solutions need to improved.

The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive.
The licensing is not expensive.
The pricing on Forcepoint Web Security is fair. Fair pricing at current market rates, if you are comparing with the competition.
