Forcepoint Recognized by Gartner for 4th Straight Year as a Visionary in Network Firewalls

Share

For the fourth year in a row, Gartner has named Forcepoint a Visionary in their 2020 Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls for ability to execute and completeness of vision.

We designed Forcepoint NGFW to help enterprises and government agencies securely connect their offices, branches, private clouds and other sites at global scale. It works with our human-centric SASE security services, enabling distributed organizations to more easily protect their people wherever they’re working.


Network firewalls are no longer a dividing line between the enterprise and cloud—now, they’re woven into the fabric of the cloud. Technologies like SD-WAN and VPN play a key role in making connectivity manageable so that people can get onto the internet safely and efficiently. Once there, SASE security services such as our Cloud Security Gateway protect what they do there: using web content, cloud apps, and internal private apps without having to worry about advanced threats or data theft.

It’s an honor to be called a Visionary. We created Forcepoint to bring a new approach to the cybersecurity industry—to help customers to break free from the endless cycle of throwing billions of dollars at threat after threat without really feeling any safer. But even more important than vision is the ability to turn good ideas into effective solutions. That’s why our human-centric approach to security and our cloud-based platform are designed specifically to enable enterprises and government agencies to better understand user behavior and intent so they can more efficiently and securely bring people and data together.

Specifically, our NGFW excels in:

  • Enterprise Connectivity – Direct-to-cloud application routing combined with full-mesh site-to-site VPNs, made scalable and resilient with advanced, mixed-device clustering.
  • Extensible Security – Market-leading intrusion prevention and access control that’s integrated with the web and cloud app security of our Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway (CSG).
  • Management at Scale – Real-world experience handling thousands of sites from a single console.
