How DSPM, Cloud DLP, and Risk-Adaptive Protection (RAP) Simplify Data Security

Carlos Carvajal

The way businesses operate is more complex than ever before. Data continues to move from traditional on-premises locations to cloud environments, people are accessing data from anywhere, and keeping pace with various data regulatory requirements is a challenge.  

That is why the way organizations secure their data, which now resides everywhere is critical.  At Forcepoint, we are on a mission to simplify the way organizations secure their data with our Data Security Everywhere framework. 

Forcepoint DSPM, Forcepoint ONE Data Security and Risk-Adaptive Protection (RAP) are key components to the framework. When combined, these solutions deliver a powerful set of capabilities that simplify end-to-end data security. From discovering data across cloud and on-premises data storage locations, through DLP enforcement across key channels, to continuously monitoring users’ interaction with data.  


Forcepoint DSPM simplifies data visibility and control 

Forcepoint DSPM brings fast, accurate data visibility that complements our industry-leading DLP.  

Here's what it enables:

  • Comprehensive Data Discovery: With a multitude of connectors, DSPM can scan up to 1 million files per hour from a single data source across cloud and on-premises data storage locations.  
  • AI-powered data classification: DSPM leverages AI and LLMs to classify data accurately and efficiently. This ensures that sensitive data is properly identified and protected, reducing false positives. Organizations can also train the AI model to meet their unique requirements. 
  • Workflow orchestration: Align key stakeholders throughout the organization to ensure efficient tracking of data ownership and accountability throughout the organization. By breaking down silos and facilitating collaboration among stakeholders, it enhances operational efficiency and fosters data clarity across the organization. 


Forcepoint ONE Data Security simplifies compliance and policy management 

Forcepoint ONE Data Security (Cloud DLP) streamlines data protection with cloud-native DLP solution providing unified management and enforcement across cloud apps, web, email and endpoints.  

  • Unified Policy Management: With over 1,700 predefined classifiers and template policies, deployment to hundreds of thousands of endpoints can be done within minutes (other solutions can take up to 24hrs!) 
  • Integrated Reporting and Alerts: Real-time incident management and integrated reporting offer a complete view of data security incidents, enabling administrators to quickly prioritize and respond. 
  • Compliance across regions: Out-of-the box compliance polices for over 150 regions simplifies compliance to global data regulations. 


Risk-Adaptive Protection simplifies managing risky behavior 

Risk-Adaptive Protection (RAP) enhances traditional security measures by continually monitoring and adopting to user behavior and risk levels.  

  • Continuous Risk Assessment: RAP uses DLP and user activity to calculate the user’s risk score in real-time, enforcing security policies that align to the risk level.  
  • Automated Policy Enforcement: Automated enforcement reduces the need for manual intervention. 
  • User behavior insights: RAP provides insights into user behavior, identifying potential insider threats and unusual behavior that may indicate security risks. 


When used together, Forcepoint DSPM, Forcepoint ONE Data Security, and RAP offer a simplified, unified approach that enhances data protection, ensure compliance and operational efficiency, and adapts to business needs and data security threats.
