Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention Scalability

I think it is pretty scalable, at least to the point that we've deployed it to. We have a workforce of 1,300, of which we have deployed to approximately 800. We also have another set of users who don't work for the department but are contracted out through our agents and sub-agents and they handle the vehicles. We have not deployed to their devices yet, so we have both endpoint and central server data loss prevention technology in place. We can tell you where anybody went, when they went, how they went, and what they used to get there. Everybody uses it whether they know it or not, we put out reports monthly on what we call PII information (Personally Identifiable Information). If you know anything about data loss prevention and detection, anytime someone hits a website or even tries to go on, it's logged and captured and we know who went where and what they did, we know what files they looked at and what files they sent, so more power to you. If you want to try something go for it. We have a CISO, six ISOs (information security officers) or analysts, and over fifteen field service personnel who can work with it. We are pretty broad that way and deep. We have got quite a number of people. Our ISO team itself is comprised of six individuals, a CISO and five analysts. Security doesn't stop, nor does the pervasiveness of data and its ubiquitous nature. Here at this organization, we don't stop security. We expand it to cover other avenues or channels that come into play. We cover other data structures that are created when another solution takes off. We don't stop simply because it is implemented. It's an ongoing tailored activity we do all the time. We have six people whose job is just this. Just like technology, we have to stay with it. You can't just throw it up and forget about it. It grows and the rules and policies need to be modified. What people need to remember is that public service is at the whim and fancy of our constituency groups. We report to the legislator, the governor's office, and the citizens of the state. As such, when we put in a system, it has to comply not only with federal regulations but also with state legislators' intent, as well as the governor's office. That is the difference and that is why we take security really personally here. View full review »

The solution is absolutely scalable in the sense that it is important to also have a discussion with customers about having visibility on their growth path. If you have visibility of their growth path, for instance, a three-year visibility, it means that you can tell the customer that they will grow from 5,000 users to 10,000 users during this time. If the customer agrees, it is important to ensure that you have a solution that can accommodate the 10,000 users and one that has a three-year warranty. So we can build on that from the beginning by extending the number of licenses. It is therefore very scalable. View full review »

This is not a product for small enterprise level customers, so most of the time we have to implement Forcepoint DLP for our large customers. We have four to five customers using this, with several thousand users. They are doing fine, and we are trying to increase usage. The majority of users work in the Information Security department.
