What needs improvement?

The reporting functionality needs to be improved, as it is not customizable. The dashboards can also be improved.

What is most valuable?

The filtering of the solution is very good. You can do URL filtering and, while you need a custom URL to filter under other solutions like Symantec, here the solution covers most categories and the database.

What needs improvement?

The management needs improvement. If our power goes down, there's issues booting up the manager. We have to do a backup and restore it. We've fixed a couple of issues on the solution so far. It doesn't work perfectly all the time. Symantec… more»

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

We pay for licensing on a yearly basis. I'm not sure what the pricing is.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I worked with DLP on my last project. I've worked with Forcepoint's firewall as well. We've used Symantec in the past, but lately, we've been getting a lot fo customer complaints about them. I've also used Infoblox.

What is most valuable?

The feature I find most valuable is the web, email and DLP integration.

How has it helped my organization?

Forcepoint Email Security allows me to block information over email, endpoint, or from a single policy. I can do that from the single console. The solution therefore helps me to manage email security.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see some improvement like cloud application and integration capabilities and the classification part is missing from the DLP.

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

My only concern about this solution is that you need to repurchase it every year because it is a subscription license. I would suggest others to use the solution with a two-year license because then… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used UDM solutions before switching over to Forcepoint Email Security. They weren't bad.

What other advice do I have?

I will rate this product a nine out of ten because every organization can use it. It is a very good product.
