Forrester found that 95 percent of cyber breaches are caused by human error. When people are the new perimeter, the approach to protecting critical data and employees needs to change. Forcepoint’s goal is to protect employees and critical data everywhere while enabling better decision-making and more efficient security for more than 20,000 government organizations and enterprises worldwide.
Forcepoint is transforming the digital enterprise by continuously adapting security in response to risks posed by individual users and machines. The core of Forcepoint’s business is leveraging behavior-centric security that adapts in response to the risk that users’ behaviors pose, providing a new path forward to proactively secure data and users. Whether it is a good employee who is making a mistake, or a disgruntled employee who may not have the best intentions, the risk-adaptive approach senses, analyzes and enforces while protecting users, data, and networks in real-time and increasing the efficacy of security investments.
The company offers flexible, adaptive security that delivers protection against data and IP loss and insider threats, with cloud and network security on a single platform with the Forcepoint Converged Security Platform. The Forcepoint platform includes built-in leading behavioral analytics that integrate structured and unstructured data to provide holistic visibility into nuanced human activity, patterns and long-term trends that comprise human risk.
Forcepoint enables thousands of organizations across verticals such as retail, financial services, automotive, transportation and more and customers such as CVS, Walmart, Accenture, Toyota and Qualcomm to collaborate safely in the cloud and innovate securely. Worldwide, Forcepoint has more than 2,500 employees with a presence in 45 countries and 150 countries represented in the customer base.
● Forcepoint delivers the industry's most expansive global security cloud footprint: In 2019, the company announced its global expansion of cloud security offerings protecting across 160 public points of presence in 128 countries – more than 65% total global presence. Forcepoint also provides best-in-class solutions that offer web and email threat detection with 100% zero false positives and network security solutions that cut expenses by 50% while reducing cyberattacks by up to 86% according to NSS Labs.
● An industry leader in human-centric security: Legacy cybersecurity models can no longer keep up with today’s threats. Event-based detection, simple user and device authentication and authorization services are unable to monitor behavior and offer no control over data after access has been granted. Forcepoint is built on effective risk-adaptive security, providing the context needed to dynamically apply relevant policies down to the individual level. The Forcepoint model provides greater visibility, centralized policy management across distributed systems, automated enforcement, and simpler compliance.
● Continued regional expansion and impact: In the past 12 months, the company opened a new Center for Cyber Excellence in Boston, further establishing the company as the most trusted cybersecurity partner sought after by large enterprises and global governmental organizations. This multi-million-dollar investment is adding 300-500 new employees in the next 2-3 years and is home for the company’s behavior analytics research unit geared to helping customers catalyze innovation and solve business challenges. Additionally, Forcepoint has opened two other Centers of Excellence worldwide — in Cork, Ireland for Cloud Research and Development and in Bangalore, India for IT and Customer Success.
