Cybersecurity company Raytheon|Websense unveiled its new company name, Forcepoint, and multiple new products.
Built on the successful integration of Websense, Raytheon Cyber Products and the recently-acquired Stonesoft next-generation firewall (NGFW) business, Forcepoint brings a fresh approach to address the constantly evolving cybersecurity challenges and regulatory requirements facing businesses and government agencies announced the press release.
We will provide a unified cloud-centric platform to defend against attacks, detect suspicious activity sooner, and give the context needed to decide what actions to take to defeat the attack and stop data theft. Defend, detect, decide, defeat – this is our vision for Forcepoint 4D Security. We have the expertise, financial commitment and ongoing access to unique, defense-grade security technology necessary to deliver on this vision,” said Forcepoint CEO, John McCormack.
As part of the company debut, Forcepoint is launching three new products to address insider threats, cloud-based protection of Microsoft Office 365 and best-in-class, massively distributed, next-generation network security.
Insider Threat Detection
Forcepoint’s new SureView Insider Threat 8.0 gives customers an early warning system, automatically identifying the riskiest users within an organization, based on their behaviors as well as on information received from TRITON AP-DATA, Forcepoint’s data loss prevention (DLP) solution. SureView Insider Threat gathers and provides rich context around user behaviors, including record and playback of user activities before, during and after risky behaviors.
Cloud-based Protection of Office 365
With the move of enterprise applications to the cloud, data must be protected everywhere. The Forcepoint TRITON platform is now natively hosted in Microsoft Azure, enforcing DLP for Microsoft Exchange Online in Office 365, directly from Microsoft’s own cloud. Forcepoint’s TRITON security solutions enforce consistent policy across the cloud, on premises and at endpoints, providing a unified, hybrid defense for distributed, highly-mobile organizations.
Delivering the most resilient and distributed next-generation firewall, Forcepoint’s Stonesoft NGFW makes strong network security easy for highly distributed organizations. Now with Common Criteria certification, Stonesoft provides consistent visibility, responsiveness and policy enforcement across hundreds or thousands of locations with a single management console.
