What is most valuable?

The ease of configuration was probably one of its biggest selling points. I know that we took a long time to get it configured properly but it just takes a while. It's a big tool and it does a lot of work.

What needs improvement?

I don't know where they are going as an organization vendor, because my job ends the moment its implemented, so I would go onto other things. If I were a betting man, though, I would say that they're going to have to find a way of creating what we call multitenancy, because if for example we have a… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I don't believe that we had a DLP in place prior to now. We had security, but two and a half years ago our agency set out to really step up its information security program. During that time we have made major investments, in process, like data classification, security concerns, risk assessments… more»

What other advice do I have?

If I were to give some advice, I would say don't try to do it all at once, it won't work. Know that you're going to go. It's different from building line-of-business solutions. Whereas from a line-of-business solution you work from the outside in, with security programs you work from the inside out… more»

What is most valuable?

One of the features I find most valuable is that it is very easy to install. Secondly, it has a very deep reporting mechanism, so it can give you a very detailed report. Then, thirdly, it gives you protection, either at the endpoint, at the network level, and also at the server level. Which also… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution improved our organization in the sense that, when we switched over to Office 365, we were able to apply the DLP policies to our Office 365 traffic. It also increased the visibility of what is happening regarding data moving in and out. Thirdly, it offers executive reporting and allows… more»

What needs improvement?

The requirements for the implementation is quite heavy. Forcepoint needs to look at how they can reduce the terms of the requirement for implementation. They also need to look at providing training for the end user, to enable them to get on it at speed. Their support also need to improve, because… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to make sure that you do a BOT at the beginning before you take any DLP decision, do a BOT. If you're going with Forcepoint, ensure that you have the prices locked down properly, and the user licenses clearly defined. Then finally, ensure that you sign the right support, you get… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has been very useful for myself, my colleagues, and our customers by helping us to be more informed about IT concepts and DLP systems. This includes how to… more»

What needs improvement?

The user interface for this solution should be improved. We would like to see OCR from handwritten documents. There is no support for the Bangla (Bengali) language, so we… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing and licensing fees could be improved. Some customers feel that the pricing is too high. For instance, Forcepoint doesn't sell less than two hundred and fifty… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before Forcepoint, we used the McAfee solution for internet security. It had flaws and was lacking in terms of technological advancement. We still use McAfee ePolicy… more»

What other advice do I have?

I suggest that before implementing this solution, people should decide which servers they want to keep at which location. This is a good strategy because after… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this solution we evaluated Symantec Data Loss Prevention, but the pricing is too high for most of our customers.

What is most valuable?

I was working with other customers with the integration of the solution of web protection with DLP and it allows the same agent to bring it and you can protect them and in some cases share web pages or emails. The other thing is that they… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us meet CTI requirements. Some employees accidentally shared compromising information and it was able to block that information. That is one of the biggest benefits we have seen from this tool.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes the agent has trouble communicating with the central management. You need to push a lot of different times to get the policy. Another issue is that the templates are primarily in English and Japanese. They have a lot of Spanish… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's not the cheapest solution but it's not the most expensive. It's a good price for a good product.

What other advice do I have?

The first advice is that you should know what data you need to protect then you can implement everything. If you know what you need it'll be a lot easier. You also need good hardware and resources in the computer hardware to be able to… more»

What is most valuable?

The fingerprinting technology is the solution's most valuable feature. It's unique to Forcepoint.

What needs improvement?

The classification needs to be improved. Technical support needs improvement. There are long stretches of time between queries and responses. It's worrisome. There's zero Forcepoint presence in West Africa. Customers typically like having these things close to them. It would help if they had a… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

From the DLP perspective, I have only used Forcepoint, but from the perspective of general edge firewall URL filtering, I've used Checkpoint. I've also used Sophos in the past.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a Forcepoint reseller. I typically handle the on-premises deployment model, but I do have a client who is currently moving to the cloud. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
