Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention Primary Use Case

PP
Management Executive at a security firm with 11-50 employees

We are a solution provider and Forcepoint DLP is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We have Forcepoint DLP at one of the telcos and one of the things that we are trying to discover is information, across the organization, that is of a personal nature. We are using it to comply with POPI, which is the equivalent of GDPR in South Africa. We are also using it for PCI-DSS requirements. This discovery component works quite well with respect to the search.

We use it mostly for endpoint protection of PCI information, as well as PII, such as social security numbers.

We have a hybrid system, in that we utilize the cloud as well as our on-premises appliances. Depending on where the customer is, if they're on-premises or if they're working from home or elsewhere, we have that covered with the hybrid solution. Forcepoint has its product available in the cloud and we use the on-premises side when the data is going through the appliances.

It's for DLP and to monitor and make sure that no key files are being sent out of the organization. It also helps in terms of tracking any abnormal behavior.

We have about 700 users and it's endpoint-based. We add an agent to the endpoints and it coordinates with the server.

Manager at KPMG

We have different areas of DLP like drive, chat, email, network, and endpoint protection. We have different data classifications which are regulated in our industry. Based on that data regulation, we created a few policies as per our government standards, like the social identity number, personally identifiable information, and personal health information. 

We categorized data for different sectors, and we have applied policies, and Forcepoint DLP actively filters it. If I'm sending some PII to you, it should get filtered out because it's against the organization's norm. It does its job actively.

Country Manager at Magarah

Forcepoint DLP is a part of a data protection program. A customer will rely on a main DLP and use a complementary tool, in addition to the DLP, such as a data classification solution like Boldon James or Microsoft Information Protection. They will also complement the solution with a rights management solution like Microsoft Rights Management. Forcepoint is part of a big portfolio for data protection.

We deploy the solution at customer sites. Most of our customers are in two sectors, financial and telecom. All of our deployments are on-prem.

The primary use case is to protect sensitive data going out of the organization and helping the team to manage the incidents to create few to no false-positive incidents. 

Mac users can use Forcepoint DLP without any problem. They can create user-defined policies rather than using pre-defined ones. Using the fingerprinting policy can safeguard any data kept on a particular drive. We're using OCR to protect data being sent out through images implementing discovery policies to check if any particular file is been shared.
