Forcepoint Stonesoft Next Generation Firewall

Flawless implementation of NGFW in a complex multi-utility environment

Technical knowledge and support from both pre-sales and post-sales teams were outstanding

Forcepoint Stonesoft Next Generation Firewall

Dependable tech with the promise of integration into a wider security strategy.

Good support and flexible implementation options. Aggregation and augmentation technologies allowed us to deploy lower cost communications with higher resiliency in areas where we previously struggled.

Stability, performance and simplicity... what else ?

Stonesoft was the only solution that could provide us the ability to manage the entire NGFW infrastructure (+60 devices) with only one person. The solution is stable. Upgrades are simplest. The management server provides all functionalities without requiring any specific license.

Satisfied with the solution

I have been using NGFW Forcepoint firewalls since 2014 and I am very satisfied with the solution, both in terms of updates, user-friendly interface and performance expectations.

Strong, Secured and Easy to Automate

Forcepoint Firewall products are Strongs And Secure ! A great advantage is the S.M.C that brings huge power for administration and monitioring, with an easy overall configuration. A.P.I are also a huge way to facilitate the automation of the deployment of all the Firewall (phys or virt). The last two years of mcafee reign was a nightmare. Since StoneSoft has been acquired by Forcepoint, i've see a rebirth of the Support team (now freed from...), the new growth of the feature and technology. As of now, I've never see a cluster so stable and so powerfull. Furthermore, AET are well secured by this technology, where others are a bunch of holes. Forcepoint is all also good with customer relation. They "heard" us, they listen to us, where others do not care of our needs.

Strong and proven reliable product

The Stonegate family of firewalls have performed reliably for us. We've also had excellent customer support from the vendor. They are there with us when trouble arises to help resolve issues. They are also there for us proactively in planning for future endeavors.

Firewall and IDS for the future at great costs savings

The vendor provided not only a tecnnically superior product but also unparalleled support

Forcepoint Stonesoft Next Generation Firewall

Great features (console, multilink, security), especially for large deployment

Best Management console on the market (administration, role segregation, firewall policy management, etc.). Only firewall solution providing multilink/hybrid network (MPLS+VPN). Great level of security (AET/IPS/etc.) with good price. The latest hardware released (NGFW 110 and 115) have finally many interfaces and are great for small sites. The acquisition with Intel Security did not improve much and we are not looking at Forcepoint integration features much. But the product remains amazing with its unique features compared to other vendors. Product stability is probably the weakest point but we also faced software bugs with other vendors as well. As the product is less commun on the market, it is harder to find subcontractors to help when needed.


Forcepoint Sidewinder

Want to be secure? Buy a firewall. W ant to KNOW you are secure? Buy a Sidewinder. Done.

The only firewall NEVER compromised in use. The highest level of functionality available in this type of device including flawless failover. Timely software updates that don't fail or break things. The BEST tech support EVER, better even than Cisco TAC. Performance levels meant the firewall was literally invisible to users. The only product I ever used that did EVERYTHING it was sold to do, and did it well.
