Here are five possible concerns to consider with Forcepoint web security


Limited proxy visibility

Supports only 15 apps for inline visibility when the average organization uses over 1,295 apps and cloud services.  The default is allow/deny policy controls with limited risk ratings for web security.


Appliance limitations

Limited compute capacity for inspecting encrypted traffic, hosting advanced threat defenses, and storing logs and metadata. Appliances are also often last in line for updates after cloud services.


DLP silo

While basic DLP is integrated for web security, full enterprise DLP is another solution silo, console, policy, and administration effort. Data flowing in thousands of apps has limited visibility for only 15 apps for DLP rules and policies.


Remote users

Requires two agents for cloud access and remote protection, plus a limited number of points of presence (PoPs) for global access.


Solution suite

Lacks full integration of one console with a unified policy for secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities.
