Forcepoint redefines its cloud security portfolio



Forcepoint has fortified its cloud security portfolio to empower security teams with new behaviour-driven controls that simplify protection of employees, critical business data and intellectual property (IP). New capabilities now available across Forcepoint CASB, Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint Email Security ensure customers around the world can safely embrace, and continue to grow, their business in the cloud.


“Approaching security through a human-centric lens helps organizations better understand indicators of normal cyber behaviour and quickly identify activity and operations, such as shadow IT, that pose the biggest risk,” said Kris Lamb, Vice-President and General Manager of the Cloud Security business, Forcepoint. “As enterprises and government agencies shift their applications to SaaS and cloud IT models, they require intelligent systems that quickly spot anomalies, assess risk and facilitate rapid resolution to protect users and their data in an increasingly zero perimeter world.”


Forcepoint is delivering new CASB capabilities that assess the risk posed by file sharing and other cloud applications and protect against the loss of critical business data and IP not stored on a corporate network. Forcepoint CASB now analyzes user behaviour and characteristics of the application, such as the data, device and location being accessed. A new single-view User Risk Dashboard reports both employee behaviour and, unique to Forcepoint CASB, the potential business impact based on the user’s account permissions within an organization. Security teams can now access actionable insights faster with a full understanding of risk at-a-glance; and, when CASB is used with Forcepoint Advanced Malware Detection powered by Lastline, organizations can be assured their data is fully protected from both risky users and malware posing as a user.


Forcepoint further enhanced its Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint Email Security cloud and on-premises offerings today with new features and tools, including:


· Forcepoint Web Security enhancements enable more granular control of cloud applications and blocking unsanctioned shadow IT.

· Forcepoint Web Security with new cloud migration tools to Forcepoint Web Security Cloud help on-premises appliance customers migrate when ready.

· Advanced Malware Detection (AMD) powered by Lastline is now available for on-premises and cloud Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint Email Security platforms.

Integration of AMD sandbox technology enables real-time protection of users anywhere.
