Forcepoint Solutions

Forcepoint was created to empower organizations to drive their business forward by safely embracing transformative technologies – cloud, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), and others – through a unified, cloud-centric platform that safeguards users, networks and data while eliminating the inefficiencies involved in managing a collection of point security products. The Forcepoint platform will protect against threats from insiders and outsiders, rapidly detect breaches, minimize "dwell time" – the period between compromise and remediation – and stop theft.

"With Forcepoint, organizations can protect users, networks and data in the cloud, on the road, and in the office. We simplify compliance, enable better decision-making and streamline security so that our customers can concentrate on what's important to them," said Forcepoint CEO, John McCormack.

Forcepoint Product Announcements

As part of the company debut, Forcepoint is launching three new products to address insider threats, cloud-based protection of Microsoft Office 365 and best-in-class, massively distributed, next-generation network security.

  • Insider Threat Detection

Forcepoint's new SureView Insider Threat 8.0 gives customers an early warning system, automatically identifying the riskiest users within an organization, based on their behaviors as well as on information received from TRITON AP-DATA, Forcepoint's data loss prevention (DLP) solution. SureView Insider Threat gathers and provides rich context around user behaviors, including record and playback of user activities before, during and after risky behaviors.

  • Cloud-based Protection of Office 365

With the move of enterprise applications to the cloud, data must be protected everywhere. The Forcepoint TRITON platform is now natively hosted in Microsoft Azure, enforcing DLP for Microsoft Exchange Online in Office 365, directly from Microsoft's own cloud. Forcepoint's TRITON security solutions enforce consistent policy across the cloud, on premises and at endpoints, providing a unified, hybrid defense for distributed, highly-mobile organizations.

  • Network Security

Delivering the most resilient and distributed next-generation firewall, Forcepoint's Stonesoft NGFW makes strong network security easy for highly distributed organizations. Now with Common Criteria certification, Stonesoft provides consistent visibility, responsiveness and policy enforcement across hundreds or thousands of locations with a single management console.
