Triton Enterprise, the backbone of the Forcepoint brand

Great. Support from the Forcepoint side is always top notch.

Pros

The Triton Enterprise package continues to be the backbone (single pane of glass) for that ties all their solutions into a polished gem. Its great if you own a number of Forcepoint solutions to be able to access them all from a single unified console.

Cons

You need robust hardware on the database side to ensure the front-end performance does not suffer. Wish they had a appliance model of this as well vs. running on windows.

Solution has gotten worse

Pros

The software is very easy to set up and use once deployed. The user interface is pretty straight forward and pretty basic to use.

Cons

Forcepoint has really gotten worse with the years. Features could be a lot better and more granular. The solution is very expensive compared to their competitors and they make you pay extra for malware detection.

Secure, Not Flexible

We use it for email and web scanning (on premise).

Pros

The software helps you to keep your network secure. It also delivers performance for email and web traffic.

Cons

It is complex to configure. Also it is not very flexible. Transparent proxy is not possible. Proxy bypass rules have to be defined both it the proxy and in the firewall. That increases operational costs.
