Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There are a couple of things. One of them is that they have what they call Incydr. Their detection and response solution to the insider threat area is called Incydr. That gives visibility to the clients that have widely dispersed employee bases due to work from home, or that had a dispersed workforce predating any of the work from home requirements. Even though they might not be inside the organization physically, they're inside the organization. It allows us to get some visibility into what people are doing, what the context is, and how to control what might be the potential for intellectual property theft or file exposure.""It has quite a bit of flexibility in configuring backup sets.""It had the ability to preseed by sending in a data drive and could restore by sending the user a data drive.""Risk factors can be adjusted for all intricate details.""t has a very user friendly status bar with common errors and has logs built in to the console so we can review the issues or status of CrashPlan.""Backup and recovery have been great, but I love having the ability to keep the hybrid type build which they offer.""It required very little ongoing maintenance once setup.""The solution is very stable. Very rarely do we have any issues with it. We don't have to deal with bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. We find it to be reliable."

"Forcepoint DLP's most valuable feature is that it provides complete end-to-end security.""Forcepoint's data visibility is the most valuable feature.""We like the ability to customize our requirements and rules, as well as its ease of use and management. It also has a cloud feature and proxy functionality.""Has multiple modules and is good with integration.""The most useful features of Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention are the transfer through Bluetooth can be blocked and the transfer to the cloud-based storage can be blocked. The features are wonderful.""The fingerprinting technology is the solution's most valuable feature. It's unique to Forcepoint.""The product is good and reliable. The vendor company is continually improving it and they seem to stay one step ahead.""Our organization's intellectual property is not misused or extracted without permission."

More Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention Pros →

"You can't always filter out data that you'd like to.""I think one we can improve is the compression.""There doesn't seem to be any feature that is lacking.""What I think could be improved is how I get support.""The application, written in Java, required far more system resources on a Client than other solutions.""In a couple of instances, we had a little bit of trouble in getting it distributed throughout the organization. We ultimately managed to do it, but they talk about it being a pretty simple process, and it became a little laborious. It would just turn away. The agents were not being distributed. It was just churning and churning and churning. When we were looking for specific categories of data, it was getting bogged down, but that was not even so much Code42, although some of it was their issue.""Java, please get rid of Java.""​Due to recent changes that effectively abandoned an entire segment of their user base, I no longer trust nor can recommend Code42 products."

More Code42 Incydr Cons →

"We faced some issues with the endpoint installation of the agent as it is not from a common ground.""I would like to see the product extended into the cloud as a single solution.""I am not able to get support directly from Forcepoint.""An area for improvement in Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is the complex UI and policy deployment. You have to find the policies, and then designing the policies is also tricky.""When you automatically try to upgrade the agent it causes problems.""In terms of display, the support and the Mac platform requires a lot of improvement.""There is no support for the Bangla (Bengali) language, so we cannot use the Forcepoint technology for Bangla documents.""Everything takes a long time, as it does in every software company, especially since COVID. That is something I notice with every product I use."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "They were the best solution and surprisingly enough, the cheapest."
  • "It is 100% worth the cost to get and keep the support, especially when setting it up."
  • "It used to be a good solution for SOHO in particular as it had unlimited storage for a reasonable price. However, their pricing model has changed and they are now primarily targeting enterprise users."
  • "The pricing is reasonable. It's my understanding that the cost is about $7 for unlimited storage in the cloud per server."
  • "It was expensive. It was more expensive than Eureka, and it was more expensive than Barracuda Backup, but what we got was a full team. They didn't come in and nickel and dime us. They provided the assistance we needed. They didn't say that they need to charge us for something or it is going to take another statement of work. It was all bundled into it... We pay for the software maintenance. It is probably 18% or 20% of the license fee for rev releases."

  • "It's not the cheapest solution but it's not the most expensive. It's a good price for a good product."
  • "The pricing and licensing are okay."
  • "The pricing and licensing fees could be improved."
  • "I prefer Forceoint because it is cheaper than Symantec."
  • "The cost for the product for our use is less than $10 per user."
  • "Forcepoint DLP is a bit expensive."
  • "One feature that I'm getting ready to take advantage of more is the ability to add more data crawlers to the DLP on-prem environment, without any extra Forcepoint costs or licensing needed for that additional data server. That will help in reducing the stress on the data server that we're using now."
  • "Its pricing is quite low considering the features they are offering. As compared to other solutions, it is reasonable. They do have professional support. If we need professional support, then there will be additional costs."

    Detect file exfiltration via web browsers, USB, cloud apps, email, file link sharing, Airdrop, and more. See how files are moved and shared across your entire organization – without the need for policies, proxies or plugins. Incydr automatically identifies when files move outside your trusted environment, allowing you to easily detect when files are sent to personal accounts and unmanaged devices.

    Incydr prioritizes file activity based on 120+ contextual Incydr Risk Indicators (IRIs). This prioritization works on day 1 without any configuration. Incydr’s risk scoring logic is use case-driven and transparent to administrators. Incydr uses Watchlists to programmatically protect data from employees who are most likely to leak or steal files, such as departing employees.

    Take action with appropriate responses to contain, resolve and educate on detected risk. Use Incydr Flows or SOAR integrations to initiate response controls that are proportionate to an activity’s risk severity. You’ll stop data leaks without getting in the way of employee collaboration and sanctioned file activity.

    Improving your Insider Risk posture requires a change in employee behavior. Code42 Instructor provides bite-sized training to employees, delivered when they need it. Use Instructor in tandem with Incydr to send responsive video lessons when employees put data at risk. You’ll ensure appropriate data governance and compliance with security standards and corporate policies as well as report on the positive impact of your Insider Risk Management program.

    Founded in 2001, the company is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and backed by Accel Partners, JMI Equity, NEA, and Split Rock Partners. For more information, visit

    Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a data loss prevention tool that protects users from advanced threats and data breaches. Forcepoint DLP’s technologies can quickly identify and protect sensitive data and provide insight and awareness into attacks on endpoint devices both on and off the network.

    With company data constantly on the move, data security teams must have visibility and control across all channels - endpoint, web, network, email, and cloud. Forcepoint DLP provides protection and visibility across all data in the cloud as well as on-premises. One of the key features of Forcepoint DLP is its ability to identify data at rest, in motion, and in use and efficiently secure sensitive information.

    Forcepoint DLP key features:

    • Identify, remediate and secure sensitive data with network, cloud, and endpoint discovery.
    • Central management of policies across all channels, including cloud, endpoint, network, web, and email.
    • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to identify data embedded in images.
    • Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for validation checks, real name detection, and proximity analysis.
    • Custom encryption identification for exposing concealed data.
    • Machine learning, which allows users to train the system to identify unfamiliar data. Users can provide the engine with positive and negative examples so similar data can be flagged.
    • Analytics for identifying changes in user behavior. These analytics are leveraged to better understand user risk and are then implemented as automated policy enforcement based on the risk level of the user.
    • Cloud protection for monitoring and preventing the loss of sensitive data online, and assessing the risk posed by visited websites.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Forcepoint DLP stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its risk analysis features and its OCR and data discovery capabilities.

    Allan P., an associate consultant at Atos, writes, “With OCR and Risk Analysis, we are able to determine if anything sensitive has been shared. OCR helps us to safeguard those things and with risk ranking, we can determine which user is trying to violate policies multiple times even though they have been blocked. It does require additional servers, as the processing and result of the incident is high, however, it's worth using to see all the use cases being met with these two features as well. They are the best features provided by Forcepoint.”

    Mahesh D., A senior manager at 2Five1, notes, “The workflow remediation is quite good. That is a key feature because of which it has the upper hand over other DLP solutions. Endpoint protection, web protection, network protection, and storage use are valuable features. Among these, endpoint protection is most valuable. It has good policies and good mechanisms to detect incidents. The workflow remediation is quite good. That is a key feature because of which it has the upper hand over other DLP solutions.
