Forcepoint Unveils New Solutions to Simplify Network Connectivity and Security for Enterprises

Forcepoint Advances Its Security Simplification Strategy by Previewing a New Security Information Visualization Tool, Forcepoint “Symphony”, and the New Forcepoint FlexEdge Family of Secure SD-WAN Solutions at RSA Conference 2022 in San Francisco.

Forcepoint’s “Symphony” provides interactive, at-a-glance information that helps security and C-level professionals better leverage security investments to drive the business forward. It allows users to quickly visualize and quantify the financial value of the security effectiveness delivered by Forcepoint’s products across key performance indicators such as adoption, data and threat protection, breaches policy, performance and risk.

The new Forcepoint FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN series integrates application-centric SD-WAN with proven network security and enterprise threat protection technologies to simplify network connectivity and security for branch offices and remote sites of all sizes.

“Simplifying security is the driving philosophy of our product and platform strategy,” said Manny Rivelo, CEO of Forcepoint. “For too long, CISOs and executives have had a real blind spot when it comes to understanding the effectiveness and value of their security investments. Forcepoint “Symphony” analyzes the performance of our platform to uncover actionable insights that empower executives to more effectively run their business the way they want, with a clear view of the money saved by stopping breaches or policy violations. Additionally, our FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN delivers on our vision to use SASE solutions to help enterprises and government agencies reduce costs and migrate to modern cloud-based environments for their applications, data, sites and people. .

“Symphony” company-wide security information

Forcepoint’s “Symphony” technology preview at RSAC 2022 is designed to provide interactive insights into security technology performance, giving organizational leaders unified visibility into every Forcepoint security technology in cloud, web, SD-WAN, network and data used across the organization.

Leaders can identify threat and breach patterns in real time and customize the Symphony dashboard to display only information that applies to their industry. They can define economic value metrics and immediately calculate savings from stopping data theft and cyberattacks, arming themselves with the ability to quantify the ROI of their security investments. Integrating advanced intelligence at a glance eliminates the need for complex SIEM integrations and gives teams greater confidence in the effectiveness of their security deployments.

FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN provides seamless control and protection for remote offices

For many distributed organizations, migrating to cloud-based applications and data presents an opportunity to modernize the way their branch offices and remote sites connect systems and people to the resources they need. Forcepoint simplifies branch office networking and security with its new FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN series.

FlexEdge makes it possible to seamlessly manage connectivity for remote sites of all sizes from a single set of policies in a centralized console. It enables distributed enterprises and governments to use private MPLS, local Internet broadband and mobile links together to automatically use the right links for the right applications. It also incorporates industry-leading intrusion protection that businesses and government agencies around the world depend on to prevent advanced threats and protect automated business communications such as traffic from point-of-sale terminals or IoT devices to internal systems.

Additionally, Forcepoint tightly integrates the FlexEdge solution with its Security Service Edge (SSE) cloud platform, Forcepoint ONE, to protect people working at remote locations when using web, cloud and private applications. Forcepoint ONE’s ZTNA capabilities make it possible to manage FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN appliances from anywhere, delivering one of the industry’s first single-vendor Secure Access Server Edge (SASE) solutions. Additionally, Forcepoint will integrate FlexEdge’s networking components onto the Forcepoint ONE platform to provide a true all-in-one, cloud-native SASE solution.

Forcepoint’s FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN is available immediately in the Americas through Forcepoint’s international reseller network. Integration with the Forcepoint ONE SSE platform is planned for later this year.
