We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The support is fantastic."
"For the most part, the solution, when set up correctly, works fine."
"The feature that I find to be most valuable is the flexibility of the single endpoint."
"The GUI is quite nice."
"It has got a really good URL categorization database. It is simple to set up. It is also easy to use and quite intuitive. It has got a nice utility for troubleshooting."
"The antiviral sandboxing."
"In terms of functionality, Forcepoint is the best web proxy available."
"The spam filter is very effective."
"One of the main features I have found the solution to be efficient."
"The AD agent is an issue which my customers and I have encountered. Sometimes it refuses to start and, only as time goes by, does it become apparent that things are not working the way they should."
"The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond."
"Stability needs some improvement, we have on occasion experienced some delay when it is synchronized."
"In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device."
"A feature we wish to see addressed in the next release of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway involves its administration."
"We have a lot of false positives, which is one area that can be improved."
"I have been in contact with technical support several times, and I am not happy with them."
"We are using a V10000 G3 appliance. It is just a proxy. It is just HTTP, FTP, and HTTPS. Now, as our website has developed and we are using rich time-connectivity protocols, the proxy doesn't have the ability to work with these protocols. It would be nice if the UDP feature was there for it to filter UDP traffic. It needs firewall capabilities for UDP filtering. Its upgrades can be quite complex, and they don't always go as per the plan. Its reporting could be a bit more granular."
"But the deployment could be easier. It might take from one day to three days. Usually, that involves an engineer from the vendor and a working team at the enterprise."
"The pricing and licensing are comparatively reasonable."
"The solution is priced a little high compare to similar solutions."
"The licensing is not expensive."
"Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway."
"Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach."
"The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive."
"The price of this solution is reasonable."
