Forcepoint has launched Forcepoint Converged Security Platform which accelerates enterprise and government agencies’ digital transformation journey by enabling secure migration of data, applications, and business operations to the cloud. Through the new converged security platform, Forcepoint is addressing CISOs business-critical need today for consolidated, cloud-based security solutions in a deployment agnostic delivery model.
The first solution available on the new platform, Forcepoint Dynamic Edge Protection, will enable enterprises to transform their network and security architectures with seamless connectivity to take full advantage of the cloud across distributed application and network environments. Leveraging the converged security platform’s integration capabilities, Forcepoint also announced strategic investments in a new technology partner ecosystem. These partnerships will deliver customers integrated solutions that extend Forcepoint’s risk-adaptive protection across existing security infrastructure, including cloud, identity, network, and endpoint.
Today’s announcement is the next phase in the company’s commitment to transform the fundamental approach to cybersecurity by understanding the behavior of users as they interact with critical data and intellectual property across global IT systems. This enables customers to take advantage of dynamic one-to-one security controls applied to individuals based on the risk their digital activity presents to the organization. This ensures security operations are more effective and more efficient. And, with the new converged security platform, CISOs can now define, enforce and monitor policies consistently across the security stack in one place—eliminating the gaps and redundancies of managing point products.
“Behavior-based cybersecurity is tailor-made for the era of mobility and cloud because it enables enterprises to detect and respond faster to risk than legacy paradigms that focus only on protecting infrastructure,” said Matt Moynahan, CEO, Forcepoint. “Forcepoint’s human-centric approach to security enables our customers to protect their people and critical data against the most sophisticated attackers, while freeing them to conduct their business or mission in the most efficient and agile way possible.”
Forcepoint is strategically investing in the creation of a human-centric technology partner ecosystem that enables customers to achieve their digital transformation outcomes. Forcepoint’s global technology and strategic alliances span areas including public cloud, data classification, identity and access management. As well as identity-as-a-service tools, collaboration, HR, IT service management, workflows, incident response and other mission-critical business applications.
Through its partner ecosystem, Forcepoint enables customers to simplify collaboration between vendors to create an integrated security stack. The ecosystem enriches and expands the Forcepoint Converged Security Platform’s understanding of the behavior of digital identities, and also extends risk-adaptive protection to existing security infrastructure. Inaugural technology alliances include AWS, IBM Security, Microsoft, Citrix, Boldon James, Ping Identity, Seclore and more.
