Global cybersecurity solutions provider, Forcepoint, has expanded its global cloud infrastructure to enable enterprises and government agencies to securely access web-based content whether they are in the office, a remote workforce, or road warriors on the move.
Forcepoint comments that it is committed to delivering customers security solutions designed for today’s cloud-first world. The company’s expanded cloud infrastructure reach is delivering enhanced enterprise-class cloud security with anywhere, anytime availability backed with the assurance that customers worldwide meet or exceed stringent data privacy and compliance regulations – without compromising performance or productivity.
With the announcement, Forcepoint claims to offer the industry’s most expansive global cloud footprint with the availability of Forcepoint Web Security across 160 public points of presence (PoPs) in 128 countries – more than 65% total global presence. This PoP expansion brings Forcepoint services to virtually anywhere in the world while delivering optimal security and productivity enhancing capabilities including low latency, data sovereignty, and content localisation.
“In a cloud-first world, people are the new perimeter. That’s why we’re starting to see legacy security players still embracing an infrastructure-centric approach increasingly become irrelevant,” said Matthew Moynahan, CEO of Forcepoint. “If the security industry does not transform from a world of point products to cloud-native capabilities, it too will have this $100 trillion global digital transformation business opportunity pass it by. Utilizing modern cybersecurity from enterprise-class cloud-first companies such as Forcepoint can in fact help enterprises leapfrog the competition by accelerating their digital transformation efforts with dynamic and proactive security designed for today’s modern threat landscape.”
Forcepoint Web Security features GDPR-friendly certifications that ensure data privacy across the entire operations lifecycle. With the highest level of cloud security available to customers across each of the company’s physical data centers, including SOC2, ISO 27001, and Privacy Shield, Forcepoint makes digital transformation safe, compliant, and easy for global organizations.
Additionally, Forcepoint Web Security offers an extensive level of security in the industry, including two major certifications. These include; ISO 27018, which governs personally identifiable information, and Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Star Gold, based on the GDPR Code of Conduct, which governs software security and cross-functional operations in a cloud setting.
Highly-distributed global organisations can also rely on Forcepoint to deliver an endpoint option to support their remote and roaming workforce. Forcepoint Direct Connect Endpoint (DCEP), is a patent-pending proxy-less endpoint that is claimed to secure nearly one million endpoints.
