Forcepoint NGFW Difference - Centralized Manageability
The Forcepoint NGFW Difference
Automation to implement business processes faster while lowering operational burdens and costs
Forcepoint NGFW is specifically designed for centralized administration in widely distributed networks. Forcepoint Security Management Center (SMC) maps your business processes into automated security controls, with policy updates made in seconds and deployed throughout your enterprise with a single click. Use SMC to configure, monitor and update up to 2000 Forcepoint NGFW appliances – physical, virtual, and cloud – all from a single pane of glass.
“Our experience with Forcepoint NGFW has exceeded our expectations…. By making use of the security management center (SMC) to manage all queries from one centralized system, we have been able to cut costs.”
Consistent capabilities and management, powered by unified software
Zero-touch plug & play deployment
Save time and money by deploying Forcepoint NGFW to remote offices and branch locations without an on-site technician. Devices can automatically download their initial configuration from Forcepoint’s Installation Cloud, eliminating the need for manual set up.
Faster, more accurate implementation of business processes
Automated enforcement of policy change processes
SMC makes it easy to see and control how policies change over time. Administrators can compare successive versions of policies to display changes that occurred while they were out of the office. In addition, secondary approval can be required for policy modifications, simplifying compliance with change management mandates and industry best practices.
Immediate response with one-click policy updates
Administrators can use SMC to quickly update and publish policies to all affected firewalls, globally and with a single click. This shortens incident response time and enables organizations to shut down attacks before they turn into breaches or stolen data.
Managed Service Provider (MSP) operations
Integration into your environment
SMC supports RESTful application programming interfaces (APIs) for automation and integration with 3rd party firewall administration systems.
