Forcepoint Stonesoft NGFW EARNS NSS LABS' COVETED 'RECOMMENDED' RATING FOR FOURTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR

Global cybersecurity leader Raytheon|Websense today unveiled its new company name, Forcepoint™, and multiple new products in Thailand. Built on the successful integration of Websense®, Raytheon Cyber Products and 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.

Forcepoint was created to empower organizations to drive their business forward by safely embracing transformative technologies – cloud, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), and others – through a unified, cloud-centric platform that safeguards users, networks and data while eliminating the inefficiencies involved in managing a collection of point security products. The Forcepoint platform will protect against threats from insiders and outsiders, rapidly detect breaches, minimize "dwell time" – the period between compromise and remediation – and stop theft.

"With Forcepoint, organizations can protect users, networks and data in the cloud, on the road, and in the office. We simplify compliance, enable better decision-making and streamline security so that our customers can concentrate on what's important to them," said Antti Reijonen, Vice President of Network Security at Forcepoint "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. We have the expertise, financial commitment and ongoing access to unique, defense-grade security technology necessary to deliver on this vision."

Product Announcements
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.

Network Security

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.

Forcepoint also announced that the Forcepoint™ Stonesoft® Next Generation Firewall has earned NSS Labs' coveted "Recommended" rating for the 4th consecutive year in the NSS Labs Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) Test – an independent, real-world, third-party assessment. In the tests, Forcepoint Stonesoft NGFW demonstrated a strong combination of security, performance and TCO efficiency, recording a perfect score for blocking all Evasions and registering no false positives on non-malicious content.

"We are proud of earning the NSS Labs 'Recommended' rating for the fourth year," said Antti Reijonen, Vice President of Network Security at Forcepoint, "Having a trusted third party validate the security efficacy and total cost of ownership of our product gives our customers valuable insight to needed to choose Forcepoint Stonesoft NGFW with confidence."

The Forcepoint Stonesoft Next Generation Firewall meets demands by integrating application control, "zero-touch" manageability, resilience across multiple layers, strong security capability, and an intrusion prevention system (IPS) into a single solution that is cost-effective and easy to deploy. It has a unique resiliency against advanced evasion techniques (AETs) that evade other devices, and delivers exfiltration protection using both application and endpoint intelligence.
