Pros
"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.""With OCR and Risk Analysis, we are able to determine if anything sensitive is 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 to him or her.""Forcepoint has been the leader in the space for many years and they, are very well established, and mature.""The product is good and reliable. The vendor company is continually improving it and they seem to stay one step ahead.""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.""The scalability is fantastic. One of the things that I like about Forcepoint is that I can customize the solution to suit my objectives.""Regardless of the size of your company, this solution can be scaled accurately.""The GUI is very intuitive. That is the way I would explain its ease of use. It is straightforward."

"It's one of the easier products on the market as far as set-ups and deployments.

Cons
"Everything can be improved and maybe there is a way to improve the user experience through the interface.""Their discovery or the way they discover the data at risk can also be improved. There are many database servers that are not supported by Forcepoint.""The user-friendliness of the interface in formulating DLP policies could be improved. An example would be managing policies. It's a little daunting at first, and can be confusing, at times, when it comes to how to set things up and how to add policies. They could improve on that.""The price could be reduced to be more cost, effective.""In terms of display, the support and the Mac platform requires a lot of improvement.""You have to monitor the solution all the time.""This solution has a tendency to provide false-positive results.""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."

"Price-wise, it is a costly product and it should be reduced.""There aren't really any missing features that I have witnessed.""In the next release, I would like to see RE2 Regex supported."
