I rate Forcepoint eight out of 10 for pricing. We have a different team that handles the pricing, quotes, and presales. I'm on the technical side, so I'm not sure about the cost. Our customers tell us they prefer Forcepoint because of their market presence. It's also the leader on Gartner's Magic Quadrant and has high ratings on third-party platforms. They prefer Forcepoint. I don't believe the price is too high, but Forcepoint is a premium service and the cost is consistent with the product they are providing. I'm referring to the price from a vendor perspective. When a customer asks us to provide this product to meet their budget, Forcepoint will cooperate with us and provide discounts.

The pricing is moderate. I'd rate it three out of five in terms of affordability.

Forcepoint has been very cost-effective because they gave us a good deal while procuring the DLP solution, and we just needed to add one license as we already had the appliance-based solution for the web proxy.

They are flexible regarding the pricing and they have a good model for an OEM data classification tool. This makes for good pricing. Forcepoint has been one of the most competitively priced products over the last few years.

In terms of pricing, it is good for a corporation but they do not cater to small to medium businesses. They have to look at a different pricing structure for small to medium-sized enterprises because the cost is too high. This is compounded for the African market because of the exchange rate. One dollar is equal to approximately 15 rands and if you were to multiply that by the price of the product, it becomes quite costly. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing feed, although you still need to understand the operational impact that it has on an organization from a resource perspective. That needs to be factored into the total cost of ownership.

Its pricing is quite low considering the features they are offering. As compared to other solutions, it is reasonable. They do have professional support. If we need professional support, then there will be additional costs.

The licensing of Forcepoint is quite straightforward. It's based on the number of users. The support fees are a separate cost.

All of the vendors that I know have the same licensing fee — all of them. The ones that I've used, like Forcepoint, Symantec, and Digital Guardian, all have similar licensing, either perpetual or subscription — it depends on what you want. Do you want only endpoint DLP or do you want a DLP suite? Either way, they do have similar licensing.

Pricing is handled by another department. I don't have any information in this area.

Forcepoint DLP is a bit expensive. There are additional fees associated with this solution. Customers are aware in advance and usually opt to include them.

The cost for the product for us is less than $10 per user. We do not pay any additional costs for technical support. Everything is included.

We've been using this solution for about five, six years now. Our primary use case for Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention is for internal and external compliance, based on banking regulations. It also allows us to ensure that data within the organization is also protected - whether this data is in motion, in use, or at rest. At any point in time, data is always in a three-state situation. Either the data is at rest, which means it's not being used at all, or the data is being used. If someone works on the data, the data is in motion, which means it's moving from one location to another in the network.

The requirements for the implementation is quite heavy. Forcepoint needs to look at how they can reduce the terms of the requirement for implementation. They also need to look at providing training for the end user, to enable them to get on it at speed. Their support also need to improve, because the response to support time is not very fast. Their response time is about 8 to 12 hours, so something needs to be done about that.

Forcepoint should consider developing its own classification technique to complement its fingerprinting technique. That way it will be the most sorted after DLP Solution in the market. Technical support needs improvement. There are long stretches of time between queries and responses. It's worrisome. There's zero Forcepoint presence in West Africa. Customers typically like having these things close to them. It would help if they had a presence here. Right now, Forcepoint West Africa has been administered from South Africa. Because of this, customers can't access premium support in our region.
