Forcepoint Web Security Scalability

Mohammed Farooq

Scalability with Forcepoint I would rate with an eight out of ten. It is pretty scalable. You can upgrade if you want to expand. We have a major customer, they are using it with more than 12,000 users. There are currently two security admins and a network admin. They're managing all the firewalls. We have a total of 55 firewalls under Forcepoint Web Security. In a year, we are planning to buy new firewalls and expand. View full review »

I implemented it in an environment with multiple users and other environments which included about 20 other items and I've found scalability to be great. You can have a lot of appliances that act as a cluster and you could have high availability on a sort of virtual ID server. You can do additional ID configurations from the other appliances so that typically it extends well. You don't have to have something like download X5. If you have two appliances, you just need to distribute both. For example, you can do it from the configuration. I couldn't find any situation in my work with Forcepoint that was not able to satisfactorily scale. So you can really make it as you wish. View full review »

Companies really have to know how their organization will scale before purchasing the solution. Otherwise, they will be limited. In our case, we've grown far beyond our expectations, and are now facing issues. These products are not that scalable even though the company claims that they are. The solution is used quite regularly. On average, we use it up to eight hours a day. View full review »

While the product is scalable, from a hardware perspective, it may need to be upgraded. It is not a modular appliance, but rather, a server. Our customers are enterprise-level businesses, in general. View full review »
