We are delighted to announce that Forcepoint has received the 2023 Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award in the Global Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Industry Excellence in Best Practices category. While this is not the first time the noted business research and consultancy firm has recognized Forcepoint as a data security pioneer, it is a great honor to be named as the leading DLP provider for the entire world!

Forcepoint excels on visionary innovation and customer impact

Frost & Sullivan bestows its Best Practices Awards based on independent research that it conducts worldwide, seeking out companies that demonstrate growth within their industry along with creative, forward-thinking strategies. The results are presented to a jury of experts, who evaluate the nominees according to multiple criteria that measure how well they innovate and implement visionary approaches to the industry, as well as how their practices positively impact their customers.

DLP has taken on a new degree of importance following the explosion of remote and hybrid work that accompanied the COVID pandemic. Frost & Sullivan noted that Forcepoint DLP is suitable for large enterprises seeking to maintain compliance with data privacy and data security regulations, along with more specialized organizations that must take care to safeguard their intellectual property in order to stay competitive.

Forcepoint's flexible architecture allows seamless integration into different environments, making it a versatile and valuable cybersecurity control for diverse enterprises.”

  • Out-of-the-box policies: Forcepoint’s library of 1,700+ pre-defined policies and classifiers is the largest of any leading DLP provider in the industry, and it works to simplify compliance in over 150 regions worldwide, speeding implementation and eliminating oversights.

It also proves straightforward to put in place and maintain, with automation capabilities that can save employee time and operating costs while preventing human error.
  • Advanced behavioral analysis: Forcepoint Risk-Adaptive Protection enhances DLP by automatically monitoring user behavior and responding dynamically to risky activity in real time. This trailblazing technology serves as a powerful defense against data exfiltration and breaches while requiring little human input to maintain.
