The most valuable feature for me in Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway is URL filtering, though all other features of the product are okay as well.

In terms of performance, Forcepoint stands out because it is more scalable than any other solution. It can extend to different types of boxes and integrate well with other platforms and vendors. And it doesn't need to have the same kind of box or throughput to have high availability.

The most valuable feature is the categorization, where you can allow general access to an application but limit specific features.

The most valuable feature of Forcepoint Web Security is creating the easy to install further policies that are deployed through the Forcepoint security manual at some stage. Just drag and drop and the policies are there.

Besides all of the threats trying to get in it is critical for the organization to keep data from getting out. So, Data Loss Prevention in combination with external threat protection is a must have.
