Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Forcepoint has been the leader in the space for many years and they, are very well established, and mature.""The most valuable feature is the endpoint DLP. It's specific to copying to the USB or copying to the internal storage in our office.""One of the most valuable features is being able to see file movement, where files are going. Every week we review the files. It can identify software codes, so we code files and we know where they're going and who's doing what. It gives us visibility.""Regardless of the size of your company, this solution can be scaled accurately.""The scalability is fantastic. One of the things that I like about Forcepoint is that I can customize the solution to suit my objectives.""The product is user-friendly.""Stable and scalable solution for data protection. It offers good technical support, and has no major installation issues.""I like that you can quickly create policies and enforce them in a matter of minutes."

"They have a fingerprint feature that is very awesome. OCR is very awesome to have too.""The main thing that I like about GTB is that it has a single agent for DLP and data classification. You can use the same agent. In terms of licensing too, it has a single license. When it comes to data classification, it supports open-source document platforms such as ChainSoft and OpenOffice.""The most valuable feature is we can develop what we want. If we have an old or new requirement, they are able to support us to develop it all within one month."

Cons
"In terms of display, the support and the Mac platform requires a lot of improvement.""The post-optical character recognization feature could be improved because it only really works on documents with some length (at least three paragraphs).""There is room for improvement regarding OCR. I would like to see it enhanced to handle multiple languages and it should be easier to manage.""It would be better if we could easily integrate with other products. Suppose I want to integrate this DLP with some other CASB solutions or a firewall solution. In that case, it takes a considerable amount of time because Forcepoint DLP doesn't come with a legacy firewall or CASB solutions to integrate with it. We need to do it separately. It's not improvised for different sectors, and I need to look for other solutions. I'm investing a lot of time researching and implementing other solutions for other areas. That is one point where I can't feel satisfied with this Forcepoint DLP. The only problem we have faced is that it consumes most of the CPU whenever a Forcepoint DLP is deployed on an endpoint. This is when users feel some lag in their machine's performance or their Internet performance. That's when we uninstall and try to reinstall, or we'll give a cloud link to which it gets access. We use Forcepoint DLP for endpoint protection, not for email or cloud. For email and drive, we went with the Google DLP. Forcepoint DLP isn't as efficient on drive or chat, or email. For that, we have some specialized solutions, but it would be better to have a single console where you can control all these areas. It would be pretty easy for a consumer who is going to use this product. All in one shot, you can try to track it and enforce your policies on a single dashboard. That is one point currently lacking in Forcepoint, and I feel they need to work on it. In the next release, I would like to use this DLP across different solutions like network, firewall, email, or chat with a consolidated dashboard and with integration facilities with other solutions. Security should work as a whole. It shouldn't work individually in blocks. It does not serve our purpose. It should be integrated with multiple solutions. For that, it should have enough intelligence to work with other tools. I'm looking forward to seeing that kind of capability with Forcepoint.""An area for improvement for Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is its price. It would be good if they could offer better pricing.""We faced some issues with the endpoint installation of the agent as it is not from a common ground.""You have to monitor the solution all the time.""I would like to see improvement in the reporting. We can only get one week's worth of data; we can't get more than that. Also, the reporting console is very slow, making it very frustrating to use."

"The solution could improve by providing additional availability requirements.""It would be great if they have information rights management (IRM) on the same agent.""They have a roadmap for the Linux platform and Mac as well, and in the next quarter, they might have patch management also for Windows. However, they don't have that much for Linux and Mac. So, we need those things in Linux and Mac as well."

    Overview

    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.
