Forcepoint ONE cloud platform, integrated with zero trust and SASE, launched

Security software provider Forcepoint has announced the launch of Forcepoint ONE, a cloud platform integrated with zero trust and SASE technologies

Marketed as an ‘easy button’ for organisations to secure their infrastructure, Forcepoint ONE enables security teams to manage one set of policies via a single console, for technologies such as Secure Web Gateway, Cloud Access Security Broker and Zero Trust Network Access.

The all-in-one platform looks to simplify 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.

Users are able to unify a range of security services through the new platform, while needing fewer security vendors in their infrastructure, dramatically reducing costs and burden of managing over 50 point products.

Forcepoint customers can immediately agree to annual per-user subscriptions to Forcepoint ONE, with a choice of an all-in-one edition for web, cloud, and private app security, or a start with a web-security edition and the option to add support for cloud and private apps later.

According to Gartner, 80% of enterprises will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services and private application access from a single vendor’s security service edge (SSE) platform by 2025.

The threat of single vendor security is too high to ignore

Nat Kausik, founder and CEO of Bitglass, explains why the SolarWinds attack proves it’s crucial to break free from single vendor security infrastructure. Read here

“We’re seeing two worlds collide today. The security market is consolidating from portfolios of products to richly integrated platforms at the same time CISOs are demanding an ‘easy button’ for security,” said Manny Rivelo, CEO of Forcepoint.

“Clearly, the old approach of managing 50+ point products isn’t working when supporting hybrid work environments with 75% of workers remote and billions of unmanaged devices connecting to business resources.

“Forcepoint ONE makes security simple by reinventing the alphabet soup of security functions that people used to assemble individually into a truly cloud-native zero trust platform with one set of policies managed in one place.”
