New human-centric security features bring together cloud access, data protection and network security capabilities to identify, adapt and respond to risk
Global cybersecurity leader Forcepoint introduced new features across its human-centric security portfolio that deliver critical visibility, efficacy and enforcement capabilities to enterprises and government agencies.
Forcepoint is releasing more than 40 new software and hardware features across its Forcepoint Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) products that enhance the understanding of user behavior and data flow throughout an enterprise or government organization to rapidly identify and eliminate risk. These capabilities work together as an intelligent ‘Human Point System’ to protect the human point as people interact with data across disparate networks.
“It’s more important than ever for institutions to protect against user risk. Whether compromised maliciously or accidentally, credentials of users are the keys to the data kingdom,” said Thomas Frank, System Administrator for Simplicity Credit Union. “In a highly regulated industry like financial services, we must educate our teams to consider strategies and technologies that are more intelligent and efficient than the traditional model, which clearly isn’t working, to protect our people and our business.”
Forcepoint’s Human Point System capabilities are developed with maximum deployment flexibility in mind – customers may implement single products or multiple, integrated technologies that fit within an existing cybersecurity environment. For example, customers may start with a single product, such as Forcepoint DLP to address data security and regulatory compliance needs, and integrate UEBA capabilities to understand the link to human risk within the organization. Customers may also choose to add Forcepoint CASB with DLP for the ability to discover and protect data in the cloud and control access to cloud apps.
“This year’s headline grabbing breaches prove a paradigm change is needed in cybersecurity. CIOs and CISOs today must address new security challenges that come with operating in a world where traditional network perimeters have eroded,” said Nico Fischbach, Global CTO for Forcepoint. “This continuously shifting threat landscape requires an equally transformative view on behavior-centric security that includes understanding the nature of human intent and the ability to dynamically adapt security response. That’s the path forward to stop cyberattacks dead in their tracks.”
Forcepoint’s new releases for the Human Point System are immediately available as standalone or integrated products through its worldwide network of channel partners, VARs, system integrators and managed service providers.
