Why is cyber security important?

Cyber security is important to a business because it protects one of their most important assets: data. Cyber security protects all categories of data from theft and damage. Without it, your organization cannot defend itself against data breach campaigns, which makes it an irresistible target for cybercriminals.

The increase in connected devices and extended supply chain ecosystems is exponentially growing an organisations’ digital exposure. And with that comes risk. At the same time, organisations are having to navigate the skills shortage and high churn of cybersecurity staff. Widespread poor configuration of cloud services paired with increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals means the risk that your organization suffers from a successful cyber attack or data breach is on the rise.

Business leaders can no longer solely rely on siloed out-of-the-box cyber security solutions like antivirus software and firewalls. Cybercriminals are getting smarter and their tactics are becoming more resilient to conventional cyber defenses. It’s important to cover all the fields of cybersecurity – email, web, cloud applications and access management – within an integrated autonomous platform.

What is Forcepoint?

Forcepoint is an American cyber security company that develops security software and data protection, cloud access security broker, firewall and cross-domain solutions. Recently, a move has been made to sun-set legacy products and migrate to Forcepoint One. Forcepoint One includes a Secure Web Gateway, CASB (via Bitglass acquisition) and ZTNA architecture to replace VPN.  The platform focus is on cloud applications and web browsing. As of 2022, email is still not part of the consolidated platform. As a result, the platform lacks unified policy management. Many of the features are carried over from the older Raytheon/Websense product line, not designed from the ground up for new architecture.

What is Censornet?

Censornet offer a fully integrated platform, delivering real-time protection and shared threat intelligence across all attack channels including email, web, and cloud applications. Features include technology such as advanced DLP, email archiving, sandboxing, continuity inbox, encrypted email and end-user security awareness training.  Through a single pane of glass dashboard and consistent policy template, it is possible to adapt the already capable out of box protection to your exact needs across all the entire product suite.  Only metadata is sent to the local cloud proxy so users do not experience browser latency.

    What are Censornet customers saying?

    Censornet was head and shoulders above the rest. They clearly have a well-thought through product and unlike other products on the market, it has been designed to run in the cloud, rather than adapted for it.
