Global security leader Forcepoint today launched Forcepoint ONE, the industry’s first ‘easy button’ for securing enterprises with hybrid workforces. The Forcepoint ONE all-in-one cloud platform simplifies security for both traditional and remote workforces, allowing users to gain safe, controlled access to business information on the web, in the cloud and in private applications.
As organizations prepare for the realities of a post-pandemic world, one of the biggest concerns is addressing the cyber security concerns of remote work. Work-from-home set-ups have allowed employees to use their own networks to complete tasks – and sometimes their own devices – which could present myriad risks. In the event that they encounter any technical problems, there’s only so much the IT department can do for them.
Gartner recently surveyed organizations and found that 47% would allow employees to work remotely full-time once the pandemic is over. Additionally, 82% of organizations said employees could work from home at least once each week.
Velocity Smart Technology Market Research Report 2021 found that 70% of remote workers experienced IT problems during the pandemic, and 54% waited up to three hours to resolve the issue.
These numbers likely only skim the total of potential security breaches waiting to happen. Data security, then, is a critical issue that needs to be addressed now!
“The Philippines continues to rank among the top countries in social media and internet usage, making it an ideal setting for hyperscalers, telecommunications infrastructure and services. Early this year, a Singapore-based company announced that they will put up the largest hyperscale data center campus in the Philippines to be located in Cainta, Rizal,” said Pam Angeles, Country Sales Manager. “Data privacy is becoming more important as the digital landscape evolves. The business value of data security is seen in many ways, such as reducing sales delays, mitigating losses from data breaches, enabling innovation, increasing efficiency, building trust with customers, and making their company more attractive.”
ONE simple solution
If an organization offers remote working opportunities, it may have thought about placing data security measures to protect sensitive information. The business may have managed to avoid a data breach, but one mistake can lead to a disastrous cyber attack that can cost millions.
Finding the right data security provider can be daunting and too technical, with various products (presented in different acronyms) promising data security on different levels. Companies on the quick hunt for a consolidated and unified security platform that’s easy to use but robust in protection may benefit from all-in-one cloud platforms like Forcepoint ONE.
Forcepoint ONE, by leading user and data protection cybersecurity company Forcepoint, offers industry-leading security from a single console. Businesses and government agencies of all sizes find its security features simple and easy to use, beginning with understanding company needs and removing data security complexity so businesses can focus on their success.
Forcepoint ONE is built on a Zero Trust model, in which everything and everyone is verified inside and outside of the perimeter to keep attackers out and sensitive data in.
“We cannot know what the future brings in the current environment, but we do know that employees need to have the ability to work from anywhere, and businesses must continue to implement digital transformation strategies if they are to remain innovative and deliver new services,” said Brandon Tan, APAC Sales Engineering Director. “The bottom line is that IT teams are looking for a data security solution that offers all the tools they need without creating security vulnerabilities.”
Security made simple
Forcepoint ONE addresses a major challenge in data security today, which is the rapid growth in the complexity of enterprise IT infrastructures. IT infrastructure is no longer restricted to desktop computers and servers. Instead, there is a clear growth in the adoption of multi-cloud services.
Businesses use a mix of legacy and new platforms. These new platforms come with new risks. As an IT security team learns how to configure, monitor, and secure new environments, each new opportunity for oversight can easily result in a data breach.
Forcepoint’s all-in-one approach allows one security policy to enforce rules and prevent unauthorized information access or sharing.
For example, a contractor for a financial investment firm could safely access the firm’s internal auditing application without a VPN or edit a Microsoft 365 document from a personal mobile device but be prevented from downloading the file or sharing it to another third-party site. These simple but powerful security measures, enacted through Forcepoint’s unified and simplified platform, puts data in a safer, less breachable position.
Secure access is achieved through the combination of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) working in concert and transparently from a single set of policies, complete with advanced threat protection and integrated data security. With access to over 300 global points of presence (PoPs) built on AWS, employees gain fast, low-latency connectivity and 99.99% uptime regardless of where they are working.
Security subscriptions made available
Forcepoint ONE is available immediately for annual subscriptions per user. It provides web, cloud, and private app security in one package. Alternatively, start with the web-security edition and add cloud and private apps later. Subscriptions include centralized cloud management, unified policies with data loss prevention, automated access through an endpoint agent, and comprehensive reporting. Whatever the company might feel is right for them, there is a simplified Forcepoint package for them.
“With Forcepoint ONE, we take the complexity out of the equation. Companies can choose packages that will work best for them, with the guidance of our IT engineers and data security experts,” Tan added.
Forcepoint simplifies security for global businesses and governments. Forcepoint all-in-one, a truly cloud-native platform makes it easy to adopt Zero Trust and prevent the theft or loss of sensitive data and intellectual property no matter where people are working.
It’s the future of remote work, secured and simplified.
