Using Forcepoint, we have created policies and rules for any suspicious mail. It is blocked and only released by an admin's approval. We have also enabled rules which block internal to external mail, or external to internal depending on the organization's policies.

We are in the service industry, and we provide solutions to customers. We have multiple customers, and they're using this solution for email security. I have also been using it as a user. Its deployment usually involves a mixed approach. Now, every customer is moving to the cloud, and it is deployed on the cloud servers.

We work mainly with security firewalls and software servers. We have customers who are not fully in the cloud. Forcepoint luckily has a hybrid deployment, which combines components from on-premise and hybrid from the cloud.

I have deployed the solution to two or three customers. We have deployed hybrid protocol agents for the roaming user, and we did the deployment for the clients using an AWS configuration.

We are a distributor of various products, and this is one of the solutions that we provide to our customers. The primary use case for this solution is filtering spam, junk, and other anonymous emails for malicious contents and sites. It is also used for filtering outgoing emails in terms of viruses and malware content.

Top brands don't mean best or most cost-effective. My advice is to look a bit further before you make a decision. Evidence suggests that most top brands are pretty good at detecting and blocking malicious attachments, best case letting through 1%, but can be worse than 50% when it comes to detecting malicious links in the text of the email.  There are numerous less well-known vendors with lower-cost AI-based solutions that have a far better success rate, also providing employees the ability to report on suspect emails which auto-removes them from other staff members' inboxes until they have been properly assessed. Some will provide a visual risk score to the recipient to give them advance warning to be more cautious. Combining this kind of capability with staff awareness products keeps your vendor list lower and further improves efficiency. For around £2 GBP per user per month (less than $3) we provide different vendors depending upon the customer's environment but provided as a managed service. This allows our customers to outsource some of the monitoring and day-to-day management, spread the cost on a monthly basis, and flex how many licences they need on a monthly basis too i.e. if you drop 20 users don't pay for them but if you increase by 20 you don't need complex co-termination and pro rata discussions.

I only can recommend Cisco because it´s the only one with which I'd worked enough. I think it is powerful enough and has a lot of possibilities. In addition, to a great support team.

I would like to see some improvement like cloud application and integration capabilities and the classification part is missing from the DLP.

The reporting functionality needs to be improved, as it is not customizable. The dashboards can also be improved.
