Provides good visibility into user activities and integrates well with Office 365
Pros and Cons
  • "Since most of the traffic is through the web and email, it covers the web channel very well."
  • "In the next release, I would like to see more CASB and SASE features, where you're protecting the user from going to specific could-based applications."

What is our primary use case?

We are a reseller and this is one of the security solutions that we implement for our clients.

What is most valuable?

Since most of the traffic is through the web and email, it covers the web channel very well.

You get visibility of your users that includes what websites they are visiting, whether they are downloading data that they shouldn't be, and more.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the endpoint deployments support multiple directory services, including Google Workspace (G Suite), as right now it only really supports Office 365.

In the next release, I would like to see more CASB and SASE features, where you're protecting the user from going to specific could-based applications.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway for approximately 10 years.
