While it was great to have a little downtime over the last couple of weeks, we are ready to begin 2018 with energy and excitement that comes from a successful previous year. As I read through the list of Forcepoint CASB new customers I am increasingly confident that providing Cloud Application Security as part of the Human Point System is the right strategy for large enterprise organizations looking to secure cloud use and their existing technology investments as an overall security solution. And based on recent news, our partners clearly agree.
Computer Reseller News (CRN) has recognized Forcepoint CASB as the Winner in the Security: Cloud and Application category in CRN’s 2017 Products of the Year list. Forcepoint CASB was recognized by the channel community for a combination of innovative features that protect against risks created by file sharing and the use of cloud applications as well as our Human Point System approach – unique among a crowded market of point product vendors.
What sets Forcepoint apart from other cybersecurity companies is best stated by a partner. CRN quotes Jeremy Wittkop, chief technology officer of InteliSecure, who offers his perspective: In a time when there are "so many individual point products" in security, Forcepoint's addition of CASB is part of bringing "multiple products on a single platform that are best-of-breed in each area. That's a winning strategy for the client."
Forcepoint continues to build momentum with the combination of our strong partner community and world-class solution capabilities that organizations need in order to secure both common and custom cloud applications. Earlier this year, eSecurity Planet rated Forcepoint CASB as a superior product for large enterprises that have extensive requirements for securing cloud applications against human failings. And, in August we welcomed Red Owl to Forcepoint as our UEBA technology – doubling down on what was already leading technology in order to further our focus on human behavior as a key element of a robust security solution.
Don't be fooled by vendors offering empty frameworks that will take years to fully integrate. Forcepoint Human Point System is real today.
